I need advice. So, I came out to my christian parents about a week ago and ever since then they have made it their mission to make my life miserable.
I know it sounds like I'm being just another over dramatic teenager, but this is seriously effecting me.
First my dad locked me in my room and yelled at me through the door about how I'm going to hell. The next day he forced me to go to church and made me get baptized.
When he yelled at me and made me get baptized I cried but that wasn't the worse part.
My mother and my dad are constantly trying to 'pray out the gay'. Anytime I say no to anything they say, they lock my in a room with literally nothing but a bible.
They took away most of my belongs. The only things left in my wardrobe are plain white t-shirts and brown pants. I can't watch tv and my electronics have been taken away. (I'm using my friends phone to write this).
They made me get a hair cut. I'm only allowed to drink/eat certain foods.
My parents say as soon as I admit I'm just confused this will all stop.
Should I give into their ways? Should I just say I'm confused even though I've known for three years im not?
I think since you are in a perilous situation and your environment is not safe or supportive, give into their wish.
Your safety and health should come first, and since it seems quite impossible that theyll listen, go along with what they say.
Once you're independent of their influence, you can be yourself, but as long as you're dependent on them, I suggest don't enrage them too much
Also of you go along with my advice, don't do it suddenly, for then they'll think you're lying. Maybe over a week or even a month, act as if you are realizing that you're actually straight, act as of youre interested in the opposite s** and behave 'normally'
This might not be the way to prefer it to be, but it's the safest option given your situation.
