• Mike Rinder, my father, would make fun of my weight

    Taryn Teutsch

    Mike used to call me “chubby” to my face, or comment about me being chubby. I remember him seeing one of my friends and insensitively saying, “She’s pretty.” I can’t think of one time he complimented my looks or said something nice like that about me. Mike used to tell me and my brother that we were “grubs.”
