"My parents were pastors and I was raised in church and all that jazz. A few years ago, I came out of the closet to my parents as gay, and they told me I was going to hell (shocking riteeee?) I always went to Christian prep schools, and when I was a little kid, I liked to draw fashion and braid my friends’ hair and pay with Barbies instead of playing football. My teachers basically told my parents straight up that I had to see a therapist ‘because other parents were worried I might corrupt their children’. The school, of course, picked out a ‘s00per Christian’ psychologist who basically made me believe I was a freak because I wanted to grow up and major in fashion design (which I’m currently doing). I pretty much felt ashamed about the one thing I was passionate about for most of my childhood.
I don’t know if I’m submitting this just to get it off my chest, but that fucjing sucked dude. Christians…. I just don’t understand them.”
