I don't get why anyone in their right mind would start a flame war over this. In so many cases, I think people with BPD are 100% justified in blaming it on their parents, being as so many of us were abused, neglected, invalidated, etc, by them. If you were brought up like $#%^, chances are you're going to have a personality disorder or mental illness of some kind.
That said, I get nervous about *openly* blaming my parents online sometimes, just because it's so popular for people to demean and belittle those who "blame our parents" or even further "play the victim", which is stupid, because for those of us who were abused, we actually are victims. I'm still angry at my parents and I'm almost 30.
