OP shared this entire infuriating tale on Reddit's Am I The A**hole sub
She received a lot of supportive comments

And was questioned for her willingness to re-establish contact with her sexist parents
A kindred spirit warned OP not to allow any of her future children around her sexist family because, based on how they reacted during the meet, they haven't changed
They want a relationship with OP now because they want to poison her kids
OP's attitude from the get-go stopped any attempts of that and she should be proud of herself
Her brothers are obviously in the same misogynistic boat as the parents which is rich coming from men who had their way readily paved for them
It was a poor attempt at a non-apology. They didn't even respect OP enough to think of a creative excuse why they were so terrible to her.
OP is thriving in life in spite of all the roadblocks her own parents put in her way. They owe her AT LEAST $100k for everything they put her through.
None of her family deserve to be a part of OP's life or share in her successes & milestones
They gave her a generic apology because they still think what they said to her and how they raised her was the only right way. They actually aren't sorry.
Forgiveness is earned and OP's parents need to grovel for the rest of their lives to deserve grace
At this point, it's a family tradition
Someone asked OP how will $100,000 help repair their messed up relationship
OP said it wouldn't mean they are sorry but it would at least be a first step to demonstrate how remorseful they are by giving her what her brothers received freely simply because of their genitals
If you were curious about OP's religion, she had this to say:
They weren't really sorry, they just wanted to insert themselves into the life of OP's unborn child. You have to start them really young if you want them to grow up sexist, right?
Their sorry excuse for an apology didn't work, so harassing OP is obviously the way to go. Let's hope OP continues to stand up for herself because her bravery looks great on her!
