by Contemplatrix Upon reading "Our Sacred Duty: On The Accommodation Of Families And Inclusion Of Children In The O.T.O.", I was surprised to learn that there are bodies that are not universally (with the obvious exception of initiations) family-friendly.  It would strike me as counter-productive to any goals of growth to
