So, seems they pulleed Obi from his AP Gvernment class to have a word with him.

He said they asked about me being Wiccan. He responded that yes, his mom practices a pagan religion, and that it is my right under the First Amendment.

They asked a lot of nosy questions about morality and about pornography, my writing and other stuff.
They asked about me taking Olivia to Mephit Fur Meet, a local furry con.

He was "snippy" with them. (the officer's words to Jon, who was willing to give our address, our professions and no more)

I was turned in for child abuse because my family is different.
Because we are pagan
Because Olivia is out as bisexual
Because I write spicy romance
Because we go to conventions.

Blessed is the norm.
Watch thou always for the mutant.

Whoo, well then, I suppose we will have to see how all this goes down. If bodies turn up, I swear I'm not responsible, but hopefully the "Don't fuck with my family" message gets across >.>

Let me know what I can do to help. If you are going to need $ for an atty I can do something after the 15th I have already spent the money from the 1st

+1 regarding atty fees. I don't have much but I'm happy to help a fellow writer.

I'm so sorry you have to deal with this BS! I wish I had something helpful to say.

This is such bullshit. I say you file a counter report of harassment against whoever called Social Services.

I swear, in my line of work I have seen several kids being neglected and mistreated, yet as they aren't being physically harmed, social services says they won't do a damn thing. So apparently treating your kids like indviduals and letting them be theirselves is abuse, while ignoring your child for five hours while you check your facebook account and yell at them if they so much as make a noise is not.

I am so sorry you are going through this.

Jeez, I'm sorry. I was at the vet all afternoon. This is such bullshit. They're judging you by...huh? I'd judge them for being judgmental.

Angel, I'm very sorry that this has happened to you and your family. It's a complete abuse of the system, a perversion of the purpose of having a monitoring body, and a slap in the face to actual victims of child abuse. I realize the school year is almost over, and I hope that the officials have faced some sort of punishment and overhaul in the months since this first happened.

(I also know this is a belated answer, but I saw you post on another blog and had to come here to comment).

Re: Terrible
Thanks, hon.

It all resolved. Olivia is being homeschooled this semester.
And no, no officials have faced anything.
