"The woman, who with best intentions, wouldn’t let my siblings and I watch Finding Nemo when it came out because she didn’t want to support Ellen DeGeneres.
God, she didn’t know how bad that messed me up--to know I was the same as Ellen and how sad and disappointed she would be if she knew. She tried after she found out about me to be supportive, “love the sinner, hate the sin,” but still.
She didn’t realize it’s not just the kids with the parents who kick them out that suffer. Sometimes it was worse to still be loved and to see the hurt in my parent’s eyes, everyday, at who I was."
