Forget places OTHER than your ears. You're basically disowned.

4. Your first name is very generic, because your parents look down on people with hippie names.

Extra gold stars if you can add a II or III to your name.

5. You weren't allowed to watch certain shows as a kid because of all the sex and cursing.

Not that you wanted to watch those things with your parents present, because they most definitely would be.

20. If you ever switched to being a liberal, they'd call it a "phase" and troll you for the rest of your life.

This phrase sound familiar? "Anyone under 30 who isn't a liberal doesn't have a heart. Anyone over 30 who isn't a conservative doesn't have a brain."

28. There were definitely moments when you've dreamed of completely rebelling.

Like those two years where you were a vegan, but then totally caved when faced with a turkey burger one day. (READ: IT'S ME.)

29. But you also know that all of the strong, opinionated parts of you come from your parents.

Thanks, Mom and Dad! Love, your daughter. (Who is still going through her Democrat "phase.")
