My family is really abusive and homophobic. I was beaten every day, every single day for nothing. There was an old guy in our house, he took care of us while my parents were gone for their jobs. This guy raped me. I had to keep quiet. Because my parents would beat me till I go limp and can’t even make a sound anymore on a daily basis. It was so hard, I started to fight back after my dad tried to hold my head underwater and kill me for the 6th time. He was a scary man, used to hold my hands on stoves and burn them if I did anything wrong. I realized I was lesbian in 7th grade. I had a huge crush on a girl. I still love her, she is hetero though. I am going to move out soon, wish me luck.
