I`m surprised by the amount of parents that emotionally black mail their adult sons/daughters not to date certain people, making them unhappy in the process. Some even threaten to kick them out if they brought home a insert__________?
Some are inside the closet their entire life becasuse of repercusions from society.

I guess it is a form of oppression when it gets that overwhelming and dramatic. It is also is very common and gets jumbled up with normal parenting. I think some degree of emotional blackmail is pretty normal. They're emotionally controlling, because they think they are doing what's best for their child and know it may be their only way of having it the way they envisioned since legally they have no control. I know my parents wouldn't want me to date outside my religion though I can get away with whatever race. I am now choosing not even to bother pursuing a guy of a different religion for both his and my sake and my family's sake.0
