Embarrassing your parents is generally considered a bad idea – but are there ever times when it’s totally warranted?
19-year-old Redditor “TryingToBreatheInOut” found herself at a crossroads when it came to how she handles her parents. She turned to the AITA subReddit to get their thoughts on a hypothetical scenario.
Even though embarrassing your parents might seem like a bad idea, there are times when it’s absolutely deserved!
One 19-year-old Redditor that goes by the name ‘TyingToBreatheInOur recently found out about it firsthand after she came into a situation when she’d have to “emasculate” her father. She took it to Reddit’s Am I The A-hole sub to ask if she was would be in the wrong for doing it, and shared the story of how her parents have shamed her since she was younger.
As it turns out, the OP had been working out regularly for the past year, but her parents still shame her about her body. So, she wanted to invite them to the gym and have a little ‘contest’, but her mom believes that the daughter would ’emasculate’ her dad because she would lift more than him. The daughter now wants to know if she would be in the wrong for doing that, and Reddit had a lot to say about the matter.
Expectedly, Reddit had a lot to say about this. They deemed the OP not to be the a-h here, but the mom and dad are a lot to blame. But what do you think? Would the teen be in the wrong if she invited her dad to the gym and had a contest with him? Feel free to tell us in the comments!
