I Don't Really Like My Parents Because They Don't Accept Me For Who I Am

Buddy never really liked his parents, and they never truly got along. They argued and disagreed and butted heads over almost everything. They didn't see eye-to-eye on politics, to religion, to lifestyle and how to raise good healthy happy kids.
Buddy is an atheist, while his parents are very devout Muslims. Buddy is very liberal, while his parents are very conservative. And, Buddy is also unapologetically gay, while his parents, not surprisingly, are extremely homophobic.
But, even though on the inside it was really clear that he didn't get along with his parents, he was never very public or vocal about his disagreements with his parents.He still needed a roof over his head, and food to eat, and money in his pocket, and he was afraid that if he shared who he really was and what he really believed too strongly they would kick him out of the house, maybe even disown him.
Because of that, he formed what looked like a good relationship with his parents, but it was totally fake and artificial - on the inside, he just didn't get along with them. They saw him as being practically perfect, a good and trustworthy kid, but Buddy saw that his parents were really flawed.
His mom liked to hold grudges, was very quick to judge people, and liked to enforce really old fashioned gender roles, like boys should do yard work and take out the trash and that girls only belonged in the kitchen and were destined to become subservient housewives. And his father was so invested and distracted by his work that he never formed and real bonds with his children.
He was also upset at the way his four sisters were treated. His parents wouldn't allow his sisters to have any friends over. They weren't allowed to have phones, or do any extra curricular activities, or drive once they reached the age where they could legally get their licenses.
And it was even worse with Buddy, especially when he tried to come out to them and tell them he was gay - twice. The first time, his parents begged him to date girls because they saw his coming out as a real threat to them. The second time he tried they just threw out a slew of insults and homophobic falsehoods ranging from the idea that gay people were in fact mentally ill, to the idea that it was a simple choice and he was just making the wrong one. They threatened to disown him and told him he would be a failure in life unless he "fixed himself."
This all made him so unhappy and he imagined that he would be under the control of his parents for the rest of his life. So, he felt he had to continue to pretend to be the perfect little straight Muslim boy in the house, dating girls and praying and the rest. He didn't think much of it, had been doing it pretty much his whole life, but when he finally confided in his friends they saw it for what it was, miserable and very, very unhealthy. They asked him to imagine what he would be and how he would feel if he was far enough away from them that they couldn't watch his every move, and judge and control him.
That was a turning point for him and, realizing his parents were more like prison guards than anything else, he thought of the farthest place he could go without them having a negative impact on him and still be successful and thrive as a young gay man.
After doing a little bit of research he concluded that California would be the best place for him -- a thriving LGBT community, a ton of diversity and acceptance, and on the other side of the country from his toxic family life and parents. So, he applied to a few schools in California and, was accepted to attend UCLA! It was one of the happiest moments of his life.
His parents were hesitant about it at first, because of how far away it was, but they were happy to have him go to such a highly acclaimed school - that's mostly what they cared about.
Since moving to Los Angeles Buddy has never been happier. He is part of a really diverse community with amazing friends, endless support, and a great education. Even though he returns home on Holidays and has to pretend, just like he used to, he is so happy to be out of that toxic house and on his own.
His next wish is for his sisters, that they will recognize the truth about their parents, follow in his footsteps, and escape!

    • Dpekszkklxixmkw🚹♿🇱🇧🇱🇦 ZX.ksñkpk🚰

    • Mia Gray Thank you for agreeing with me

    • ❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤

    • I left porn hub for this shit WTF

    • storybooth I genuinely don’t like story booth

  • Quaran is fake

  • Instead of ragging on your parents, how about you be thankful they put a roof over your head, clothed you, and took care of you. You liberals are so fucking soft.

  • Pray the gayaway

  • #1 on trending! You’ve come so far storybooth!

  • Diversity sucks lol

  • Well done on 2 on trending

  • fucking Muslim scums, hope there suicide vest detonates them selves whilst wanking to a fucking goat

  • Religion is nothing but society's accepted mental illness

  • I am Muslim too! So take me as I understand Islam. No matter how bad or how unfair your parents are, You have to respect them. On the day of Judgement. "Allah" would ask you about obeying your parents! We should be thankful that how bad our parents can Be, atleast were not orphans living in an isolated orphanage!

  • *For the 1% who sees this good luck in your future!* ❤️ X is alive in our hearts black ♥ *Im subing to people that sub and like this comment.*

  • Actually your mom is right

  • Ew a liberal. Gender roles aren’t that bad lol, Not at an extreme but just as a norm they are. Also i have a feeling this isn’t the whole story.

    • Okay? Can you explain that?

  • Title sounds edgy

  • After thinking about it...I dont like this...mainly because the dude is a spoiled brat. If they provided a roof and home you shouldn't and never hate them. I have other complaints but I'm not going their. Ps: I have no problem with the fact that he is gay

  • some parents are just dumb . they value religion ( which are some beliefs written by people hundreds of ago. no offense to religions intended btw . im sorry if i did offend you) and respect in society over their children's personal life, choices , happiness and freedom .

  • Fuck gods, and fuck gays.

  • The world needs this so much right now. There's something so powerful about you speaking your truth in this video. Dare I say, you are doing God's work. Whether or not you believe. I believe people can be in line with their heart or God whether or not they believe. Yes, most people practicing religion are very shallow and ignorant. And are often times very ungodly people. But that doesn't mean God isn't real. Just because they have a shallow interpretation of the books. God loves everyone even the homosexuals and God wants us to accept and love all our fellow humans. Like you personally have no idea that God really does or doesn't exist do you? you can't prove God doesn't exist. But I'm not trying to make you change your beliefs, but just give you some things to ponder about. But yeah, it's time for a lot of parents to take a look at their actions and how they really impact their family.

  • Fuck gays. They shouldn’t exist.

  • So what I got from this. If your parents have rigid beliefs that they think are the best for you (even if they are wrong) pretend to go along with them but secretly don’t. Don’t keep trying to convince your family that this is who you are, and it’s okay. Don’t stand up for yourself and instead sneak away. Don’t get a job to support yourself, lie to your hate family so they will support you. I mean, did I miss anything there? Because it seems to me, based on this video and previous experience with several religious families, it sounds like his parents are afraid for him (hell or abuse or some-such) It doesn’t sound like this guy’s afraid of losing his family, just their financial support. Which I have to say if that’s the case. I dislike

  • I'm a Muslim kid my parents don't behave that way rather quite in opposite way😶

  • wait you acted like a straight male by having a girlfriend...but if your parents are STRICT AND RELIGIOUS,than even having a girlfriend is haram,you must marry her before you could hang out with your soul mate,according to strict Muslim parents

  • wow this probably my parents,,

  • This video is on trending because people keep clicking on the video just to read comments 😂😭

  • congratulations on trending

  • As a human.... I’m sorry. I apologize you had to have these feelings

  • I mean my parents are different, they’re Muslims but they’re actually good and your parents may pray and read Quran, but they don’t really have the akhlaag (I don’t know how to say it in English) of a Muslim, my parents aren’t fully against gays, they just don’t want us to be them but they treat everyone equally, they just don’t think we should be gay or something and we’re straight so we don’t need to argue about anything

  • Congrats on trending

  • Since when did ID-tv have to be all political with it’s trending page. I thought ID-tv was meant for News and Entertainment, not this bs.

  • Good job on trending! #1

  • I swear these kids have no form of backbone. All they do is complain about how “hard” it is. A roof is a blessing alone.

  • Arent u are muslim You going to hell cuz u are gay Anyone gay and there are muslims they going too hell Not only muslim every one gay well go too hell

  • I disagree COMPLETELY with this kid. I can't even think of a single word to describe how wrong he is... God help you, man..........

  • Any Muslims out there I'm a Muslim there trying to give us a bad name and the boy why don't you turn christia n or some tin

  • Good for him

  • We're supposed to look up to and empathize with a liar who disrespects his parents and mooches off their money all the while saying that they don't love him? Don't choose this hedonistic lifestyle. You're parents will always love you but no one else will. Be glad child that you're parents cared for you and have not abandoned you. That they feed you and let you live under their roof. Love them even if you think they do not love you.

  • I will be bisexual ✅

  • It’s weird when ur strict Muslim parents let u have a gf

  • I must know why there is dislikes.

  • Uh okay, I'm not trying to be too offensive here.. But if I were him; I wouldn't become an aethist. Whoever got into Islam religion is very lucky to become one. ( in my opinion that is )

  • Ur parents are Muslims.. and in there Religion gay is a sim.


  • I hate gays I'm Christian

  • Number 1 on trending Keep up the good work storybooth

  • I've said my peace regarding YT.🙄 Now let me talk to young people (mostly teenagers): please don't base ur entire lifestyle and life-long decisions solely on ur sexual desires, (especially during that age). Simply because u r MUCH more than that!! Don't be hasty. Take ur time. Heck, if u r sooo fixed on having a premature sexual experience, at least save it for someone Special. Because believe me, sometimes people CHANGE once they know what being "Gay" (for example) entitles. Moral of this comment: Don't burn all bridges because of some phase!! No matter how important u think that thing is, (RIGHT NOW). Eventually, they ARE ur Parents. 😊❤ Even if U Certain that u picked the right decision, that's no reason to HATE them, and encourage ur little sisters to do the Same 😖😓😓💔

  • Awee poor fella has to rake the yard lmfao

  • How to get popular: Be gay

  • Wow number one on trending congrats

  • Stop. This is distracting you from the only form of happiness. [~O I N G O~] [~B O I N G O~] *[~B R O T H E R S~]*

  • Hey sub to mean I will sub back once you subbed

  • Holy moly...

  • Well that was a waste of time

  • Why does everyone seem to hate on the video?I don’t agree with the kid but at the same time I don’t wanna disagree,so I want to know everyone’s opinions and if anyone can explain why most people seemingly hate on the video.

  • Congrats on #2 on trending

  • It's easier to play the victim

  • While I don't agree with your life choices, you're parents could just be needing to learn to accept those different than them. I'm sure they'll come around but I wouldn't put effort into maintaining a fake relationship with them.

  • Im pakistani too.

    • Nutella Vlogs with Goodness how’s that Christian girl you people want killed

  • He wants to get the aslyum by this video .. that's all with his drama and tragedy ?!!

  • Mine don't accept me too if I don't like every subject and oh yeah they can't force me for waring or picking my hairstyles I hate how parents (some) do it

  • They didn't show the end where he graduates and ends up homeless in California like everyone else. Oh wait, he's a user so he'll abuse his parent's money and love.

  • How could he be gay when he got a girlfriend at 1:44 ? Maybe she meant a female friend like the others? Idk. Btw, I'm a small ID-tvr

  • What is the point of this video? To “inspire” people? To have people pity you and your circumstances? To get on trending? Seriously, someone throw me a bone here, because there is no clear answer!

  • Join the fucking club

  • Or this Guy could just move to Sweden...

  • Wait a minute. Sex is not allowed outside of marriage in Islam.So how were u allowed to date?

  • hope he gets shot in stupid fucking snowflake california

  • This dude is the most entitled and unappreciative person ever.

  • Please help me with my app I invested a lot of time because it's my first one. bit.ly/PlayDodo I hope you can give me feedback

  • Their Muslim why are you surprised.....?

  • Black ops 4 dark matter glitch - id-tv.org/tv/video-CdZ0v86eyqk.html&t=3s

  • I don’t think his parents realise that if you are gay u can’t change that and u are perfect for whoever u are and I’m really happy for him

  • Bro, almost everyone parents is like this now a days , & please stop Making it sounding like only Muslims people are like this. Everyone is dealing with this in some way, they just want what is good for you

  • I know being a Muslim is the worst you did a good thing kid

  • So you don't like your parents.but one day you will also be parents and hope you will do a video.life is soo long to go and what I see you are still a baby .any parents is perfect and you are not perfect .try to do better than yours parents and then you can compare ..

  • You’re my Freddie Mercury! 👨🏻👨🏻👨🏻

  • Im in the same situation currently only they wouldn't let me travel alone even if it's for school bc I am a *f e m a l e* :)

  • How does a complaining libtard top detective Pikachu? I’m very confused!

  • Congratulations on trending

  • Someone is deleting comments. I believe ID-tv is spamming it's user with lgbtq propaganda. Be sure to thank them by thumbs downing the video.

  • wow im seventeen and in the same exact position.

  • Fuck it , my parents beat me because I want to be a rapper,I like dreads.

  • What a commie cocksucker

  • I actually can't believe the comment section. Knowing someone who's been in a similar situation, and having strict parents myself (though I'm not gay), sometime you have to get away before you can one day return and make a healthy relationship. If he stayed with his parents forever he would likely be miserable. Some parents just don't understand that people need friendships and fun in their lives, and can't be cooped up studying for something they didn't wanna do in the first place. And some of y'all are just saying to NOT BE GAY?!?!?! LIKE WHAT?!?! Either y'all are children or just literally retarded.

  • I’m really glad a pro gay video is 1 on trending:)

  • You know , when ur mom gave birth to u , she had experienced a LOT of PAIN , which is why you live until today. And they worked soooo hard to give all the things u need. So whatever the reason, i dont think to hate your parents is right. And hoping your sister to hate them? It's just wrong, no matter what is your religion or atheist, it's never right to hate people especially ur parents. They say we are free, but why people hate homophobics and why homophobics hate gay people. Its their right to believe what they want. HATE isn't something you can say easily , its a strong word. And its different from 'dislike'. I get it you want to be on trending, BUT maybe your video has make someone also hate their parents and think its the right thing to do. So please be more careful, there are a lot of kids watching ur videos. Why spread hate when u can spread love?

    • Auryn CW oh look a Muslim sand rat
