Michelle and Jesse: made by krepander

Mom: Talia's bringing her friend Scott up tonight. I said she could because he's one of the gals.
Dad: Oh, great. Is he gay?
Me, without thinking: Hey!
Mom: No, he's just their friend.
Dad: What, Lauren? Why are you so adamant about defending gay people?
Me: I don't think it's right to talk like that about a minority.
Him: They're a minority because of their sexual preference? I don't think so. I think they're disgusting and unnatural. Do you think it's natural?
Me, cornered: No.
Him: Then why do you feel the need to defend them? They're disgusting and I don't want that in my house.
Me: I just do. It's my personal preference, I'm sorry.
Mom, not good at being subtle or maybe just wanting to get it out in the open: Your personal preference is being gay?
Me: No, I just like to defend them.

He will never, ever forgive me. I just need to learn to accept that. As for her... I have no idea.

XPosted for self pity.

I know how that goes.
I don't tell my parents because I don't want them to be hurt, and because I don't want the argument that would follow.
