    Oh definitely. Believe me, I know a few men personally who were molested and abused by female relatives as children (one was five when it happened to him). Luckily, some people are coming around to realize that it happens to men too and statutory rape is statutory rape no matter the genders involved but it's still not fast enough. You still get people saying "Oh, what a lucky kid. A 30 year old woman took advantage of him? Wow."

    That's awful. It's the same in my town. If someone's raped, they're given directions to a women's shelter. There's no gender neutral resources. So it forces men to feel even more ashamed of what happened. Hell, that guy who was 5 that I mentioned? His own mother basically told him to hide it and he didn't come forward until he was in his mid 30s...

    I liked the time travel bit, and how they used the screen for exposition. Never thought I'd see Freddy Frazbear do the splits. :eek: :lol:

    It's my dad. He always had a drinking problem. When we were kids, he'd get drunk and argue with my mum. He'd leave me shivering in my room crying, scared he would hurt me or my family. As we grew up, he got so much better, until tonight. It's just like it used to be.
    I tried so hard to be strong, I want to protect my brothers and my mum, but I can't. I let myself get scared and now I'm lying here listening to him threatening to hurt us. I know it's all talk, he's never purposely hurt anyone, but I'm so scared.

    He drove off in the car to buy more alcohol when he was drunk and he just tried to do it again. I can hear my little brother crying in his room, but I'm too scared to comfort him. To get to him, I have to walk past my dads room and I don't want to let him know I'm awake.

    I thought I was on top of my depression and now I'm crying and shaking like I'm six again.
    I'm not supposed to talk about it, and here I am blubbering on an LGBT forum like some kind of freak. I can't protect my brothers, I can't even protect myself. I feel sick and I don't know what to do.

    He is hurting you. This is verbal abuse.
    Who can you go to for help?

    He's asleep now. It's okay, he'll be back to normal in the morning.

    I feel terrible for even posting this now I'm calm. My dad is a brilliant man. He's funny and caring, just not when he's drunk. Everything's okay, and I'm sure he'll be immensely sorry when he wakes up. He has Aspergers syndrome, so alcohol affects him differently to most people. I love my dad, I don't want people to see him as this evil figure.
    I'm not coping too well recently, and this was the straw that broke the camel's back. I'm sorry if I worried anyone. I am safe :slight_smile:

    I've been through what you are going through right now. I was eight when we ran for our lives. You need to talk to someone. It will only get worse.

    This is the first it's happened in ten years, I'm sure it won't be repeated.

    Look. I don't have a parent who drinks. My mother-in-law sure does though. Believe me, her hands have been around my neck. Even if it doesn't happen again in the next few years, you still need to talk to someone. I mean, think of how you felt. No one should have to feel like that. It's not your fault. Unfortunately, your father probably has a problem. Think about it. He drove while drunk. He could've hurt someone. He also scared the shit out of your family. That's not acceptable.

    --

    I just watched a guy steal a lamp out of a crowded coffee shop. No one noticed. Not even the staff. I did though... Wished I'd said something but I hate to admit it, I wanted to see if he would actually get away with it. I'll buy some extra stuff from the coffee shop to make up for it.

    Trying to figure out the best place for my personal situation to live in charlotte is so fucking complicated and stressful.

    So many factors go into figuring it out.

    I still don't know if I should try and find a room for rent or a apartment complex lease in the future.
    :bang:
