So my mom has been dating this guy for a few years and for awhile he didnt really bother me. When I was in 9th grade he woke me up one morning and started hitting me. I told a teacher and they contacted the proper authorities and after the whole case was reviewed nothing came of it. Since then he has resorted to simply being verbally abusive and Ive resorted to hating him. It's always bothers me that my mom has been dating this guy, and she gets all bent out of shape when I try to talk about it. All her sisters and her mother are silently on my side on this matter (they've told me). He is very rude and intolerant, two things I can't stand in a person. But today sent me over the edge, for the past few months I've been dating a bisexual, while I myself am hetero, I obviously don't mind being around people with different sexualities. Anyway that's not the point. Today he and my mom were talking about going somewhere for the afternoon. My mom suggested going downtown but there's a gay pride festival going on there so my moms boyfriend said "are you sure? All the f**s are there". I started crying and my mom was wondering what was wrong. Well my girlfriend is one of the "f**s" downtown, so was I supposed to find the comment amusing? Anyway I told my mom that I was offended and her reaction was pretty much that I wasn't aloud to be. She gets so defensive about him, its sickening. How do I make my mom see that this guy doesn't even deserve to live nevermind be her boyfriend. He is so ignorant, racist, homophobic, rude...the list goes on. Why is my mom the only one who can't see that?
