So I come from a family that is super Christian, Republican, and anti-LGBTQ+. Not only do they on a daily basis rant about how gays are going to hell in front of me but they regularly call me a lesbian/butch as an insult. I am planning on moving to California (I live across the country) when I finish high school but I don't know how to deal with all of their homophobia and views because when ever I say something that they don't agree with they start yelling at me. How do I deal with this?
Wow that really sucks. I’m so glad you decided to move as soon as you can. That’s the best decision you can possibly make. Until then, I suggest you try and stay away from the house. Take up after school activities, hang out by a friends house, walk around the town, libraries are pretty cool too. If you don’t see them much, they won’t be able to upset you. Try and ignore the rants, don’t answer back and fight. Don’t try to change their mind, just nod and smile. It’ll drive them crazy so at least you’ll have that small victory. You will leave and you have that to look forward to, let that consume you and help you get through this. How many years of school do you have left?
