...as conservative does

Voice Card  -  Volume 29  -  Holly Card Number 3  -  Sat, Jul 24, 1993 9:29 AM

This is a response to VC 28 Janine 4 ("Dis-disclaimer")...

Oh Janine, I wrote the card for this reason. I was afraid I might censor myself and not say how I think. I made a declaration to expose myself immediately and thereby be brave enough to be myself. I of course expect the same from all of you. I was warding off my own demons.

Anyway, speaking of conservatism is in the eye of the beholder... I graduated from Brigham Young University and I grew up in Redwood City. I would go to BYU during the school year and feel like a tramp due to various things such as a non-mormon boyfriend, liberal (comparatively) views, a cleavage to be proud of, etc. Then during the summers I'd go home and feel like the perfect prude due to not smoking, not drinking, modest dress (same clothes). I had not changed but my setting had, I was very frustrated. And I still am frustrated.
