I was only a child when we studied and this head covering thing is all new to me. We studied at our home and no one covered their heads that I remember. I only ever remember going to the Hall for one Reject Jesus Party. As a family, we never went to the meetings. But back then my Dad wasn't into religion and I don't think my Mom was overly thrilled with some of the goings on in the organization (especially the door-to-door work).
From what I read here on the board, something was amiss in my family regarding 'zealousness'. Maybe it was a combination of things.
All I know is that by the time I hit my teen years I knew there were serious issues with this religion and I wasn't interested in 'dedicating' myself to it. The red "Your Youth" book, an article stating I had to subject myself to my future husband as a wife, the blood policy, a flip flop on Evolution, my parents not getting along, my increasing disagreement with the WTS interpretation of scripture and their blatant scriptureless rules all added up to my saying "No Thanks!" to this oppressive and abusive group.
Women are definitely second class citizens in the Borg.
