Woah, woah... woah. That's just horrible parenting right there.

I'd leave that house ASAP, that's too fucked up to bother changing.

You're 18 maybe a bit younger than you actually put it, and you're parents now all of the sudden treat you like trash over a kid who hasn't been around as long as you have?

Leave. Hell, I probably would never talk to my parents again if they were like that. They're basically treating you like shit because they're obsessed with cute kids and possibly the fact their child is male. That's way too fucked up.

thanks~
you're so nice.

I do think he wants attention and he enjoys it when my dad gets mad at me, so he finds everything to fire me up.

do you have any good ideas of what to do to get back at him?

IMO Take his shit behind his back and get rid of them completely, don't hide them in a corner, find somebody else's trash bin during trash day and chuck that stuff in there when nobody at all is looking. Don't do it too often though O.o.

Sorry but this is too much of a personal threads. Post in the Personal Advice thread instead.

I'm Chinese and I haven't met any parents like yours. Your dad is horrifically biased. I know families who have two sons and a daughter and they much prefer the daughter 'cos she's so much quieter and easy to parent. It really depends on each family and also to do with your dad's upbringing as well.
Your dad may have equally been doted on as a child or maybe he felt he wasn't doted on enough (does he have any brothers and sisters?) so he's over-doting on your brother to compensate for what he lost.
The trouble with Chinese parents is that they tend not to listen to you. I've given up complaining to my parents years ago. So this leaves you in a difficult situation 'cos you don't really have anything to do about it.

There are two things you can do though:
1. Be really underhanded and sneaky and start slyly taking things from your brother without him noticing. It's kind of like subtle revenge. My friend did that with her brother (actually they did it to each other) but you need to be really careful about it because the chances are that your brother and your dad could just end up blaming you and it will backfire. If done well though, it's cool seeing the confusion on their face when they try to remember when they last put their Nintendo =]

2. The other is to directly approach your brother about it, bribing him. Something like "if you pinch me then I will do this." But then again..if your brother goes and complains to your dad it could also backfire.

My sister isn't very wild but she generally doesn't do anything bad to me partly because she is genuinely scared of me when I'm pissed off at her. So I guess you need to find some way to have authority over your brother, injecting some fear into him.

Anyway let me know how the whole situation turns out. Hope this helped =]
