When I hear older generations talk about how "moral" people were in the "good ol' days" I always roll my eyes. The amount of legal discrimination decades ago was appalling, girls who got pregnant had quick marriages or convenient "vacations", and "parenting" often meant abusive punishments. My mother's paternal grandfather Bill was one of the worst parents in the history of EVER. Mainly because of what he did to my great-aunt Judy. Both Bill and Judy are now deceased, but the horrors of what happened won't be forgotten for long.
My great-grandfather Bill died long before I was born so I gladly never knew him. So what on Earth happened? Well Bill forced himself on Judy several times long before she grew up. My mother learned of this years after Bill died. I knew Judy briefly before her own death, but my mom was close to her growing up. She loved Judy but she learned that the experience really messed her up. The sad thing is that Bill (from what I understand) never went to prison or got divorced. Not many would claim descent from a monster, but how can a man do that to his own daughter?
