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!

    • Fuck this shit nigga

    • Subscribe to my channel I make daily vlogs and skits

    • Deena Wolfe cringe

    • Sam amv the Muslims are the only ones leaving hate comments

  • How is this 1 ON TRENDING? YT STOP FAVORING GAY, TRANS, LESBIAN, AND BLACK PEOPLE. It’s unfair and you’re killing your website.

  • I wouldn’t accept him either, atheist, gay and a liberal worst things u can be

  • Well parents are only human just like the rest of us


  • Fuck this was a waste of time

  • They are not homophobic they are Muslims and in Islam it is a sin to be gay so they are just trying to protect you.I know this because i am Muslim

  • Libtard

  • What a waste of fucking time...

  • Meh being gay is alright but liberal naa I’m good

  • Yep, religion sucks. I'm talking about yours too

  • Man fake storys these days are popping. "Parent have rights" - by god.

  • Imagine getting triggered over this vid

  • Just take the damn advice from your parents and be gay. Who cares, everyone goes through this

  • Keep in mind that not all conservatives are like this...... just the few strict religious people

  • Who ever subs to me gets a sub back valid till next 30 mins also let me know by replying

  • You are makeing videos so fast how are you doing it!?!?

  • They are old fashioned forget them

  • No one cares that you like to take it in the ass.

  • Yeesh, I disagree with EVERYONE in this video.

  • Ben Shapiro has entered the chat.

  • He said gay i quit the video.

  • I understand his point of view. He tries to come out to his parents and he just wants to be himself, and his parents putting him down effects him. But to the parents, they might see it as they just want their son to grow up and be successful. They may think that being gay and having a different religion is going to affect that. They do care about him I'm sure, but they might have to change the way they teach him how to grow. And he might have to talk to his parents about the way he is feeling.


  • I can't even describe how much I hate when parents try to force their kids to be mini copies of them self...

  • Well done for getting #2 on trending

  • I wouldnt accept a liberal either. Stop bein a whiny bitch and grow some balls.

  • So... they "don't accept you for who are" don't they?... Well... who are you, child?.. Who told you that, or did you just figure it out in a burst of adult insight interrupting your adolescence?..... You're a child... you have no idea who you are, and your schooling by low intellect women only INTENSIFIES that dissatisfaction. Sit quietly for 30 or 40 more years and watch your resentment fade away.. it's called: adulthood. And you're not one.

  • whiny bitch

  • sorry but being gay or lesbian should completely be out of this world lmao

  • Those parents they didn't understand their religion

  • My biggest fear is having a gay child. How embarrassing and shameful

    • What would happen if your child WAS in fact gay

  • Was I the only one waiting for there to be a good resolution to this story

  • Maybe some muslims are like this but trust me most of US won’t judge people they believe what they want. Assalamu aleykum (peace be upon you) to everyone who’s reading this comment✨

  • I don’t like my dad because he beats me up. - V

  • id-tv.org/tv/video-5R-htfIXzR8.html

  • It's a lack of understanding

  • California is only accepting towards ppl who follow their beliefs. Conservatives are not accepted, straight white christian males are the oppressors, and it's mandatory to hate Donald trump. If you are or do any of the following then I would not recommend moving there. You are an even bigger target if you are lgbt or black and do not follow their beliefs. heres an amazing (and funny) compilation of the media attacking kanye for his beliefs id-tv.org/tv/video-Zm_Geo16szg.html throwing racial slurs at him constantly and even making a comment on his dead mother.

  • His parents were emotional abusers and yet people call him ungrateful. If you think financial support is the only thing parents should give their child I then I hope you never have kids.

  • #2 trending ❤️❤️

  • Spoiling others too..

  • Your pearents took their religion too far

  • This is Carrie👩🏼‍💼one like = her age

  • Your gay thats why buddy

  • How are gender roles bad? According to studies, 95% of women who stay home are happier then women who chose to work. They are using their natural special gift of childbirth and nurturing a human life and taking care of a home. This is somehow bad? It being thought of as “subservient” is from feminists, not the role itself. Also, funny how only women and feminine men complain about gender roles. Men were unwillingly drafted into wars and sent to be killed and they just went along with it. Men are 97% of workplace deaths because they chose to work harder jobs which women have the choice to do but just don’t, and they didn’t protest or march for men to have the right to stay at home and not work if they wanted to. Why did only women care about working but men didn’t care about them having that role? I’m sure a lot of men would have rather been home cleaning then working in the coal mines.

    • Women who choose to be a housewife is not a bad thing, but stating every woman should be like that while waving around studies without giving sources is a dick move.

  • Wow your Parents loved you, fed you, and bought you shit. What absolute assholes, they can go die in a fucking hole.

    • And they want there daughters into a marriage where they act like objects and they want there son to be *fixed* for something he can't control

  • Shut up libtard

  • the best one yet.

  • I hate gays, This is just making me feel broken down

    • Why do you hate LGBT (I AM NOT CALLING it LGBTQ+)

  • It seems like you could also reverse the title of this video and say “My parents don’t really like me because I don’t accept them for who they are”. Right?

  • Well....How do I say this you're supposed to follow the muslim ways of islam and well.... your parents arent following them making you guys believe that girls have to do kitchen work and boys supposed to do garden work

  • This is why we are better off without religion. They teach you not to do this, don't wear that, don't eat this this is your role. Religion has done more harm than good

  • Wtf. Your family is toxic as hell. Im glad you got out of that situation. My family is muslim but we aren't even that conservative. My mother wants me to not marry until after I get an education and a job. My aunt doesn't even want me to consider marriage until my mother 30's just as she did. My mother made me research and then choose if I wanted to wear hijab. If I didn't they said they would still love and support me. They that even to this day. I have a phone , laptop, I'm demi but haven't been attractive TRD to girls. I'm respectful and supportive of the LGBTQ community mainly because of my beliefs. I don't judge anyone because I know we are all human. Though I disagree with my parents on many things. I haven't told them I'm demi or that I support the lgbt community and many other things. They give me freedom and trust me. I can go anywhere as long as they know (im in hs btw). They are buying me a car after I proved to be trustworthy. I feel privileged cause I hear a lot of stories of girls or guys forced into these roles in the community around me. My parents are more overprotective (mother really. Father not so much. He let's me do my own thing as long as I don't do anything illegal or haram). So it took her a while to get used to my american friends but eventually she started to love them as her own children . My grandma (mother's mother) despite being religous is very liberal and if it wasn't for her I wouldn't be either. I'm happy you now can live and breathe the way you want now.

  • make one thing clear parents always want our wellbeing. all wrongdoings are unintended


  • What the.. Idk, why should your parents know that you're gay (or why should everyone) .. I understand the atheist part because that's also happened to me, like when i stop doing prayer and stuff, it's hard to keep it as secret . But being gay, you could've just pretend having a very close best friend, you don't have to show any kind of romantic action while they're present. You could french kiss your dude in a private room. It's not like you're in a marriage age either so you're not in hurry or anything. Booooo

  • “I hate my parents but I’ll use their money, house and let them pay for my college” What’s with this kid? Lmao

  • I am sorry , but I do not agree with that , his parents was being too hard with him , but It's normal , they just want your damn good , don't need to screem at your parents , you should try take a fucking conversation , they are just scared about what could happend with you being gay , even if have people that agree with your sexuality , have people that don't and maybe do worse , they are just trying to protect you

  • Atheist and gay in a Muslim home? Boy you must be looking for a whipping

  • When his parents watch this tho

  • ‘I found out im gay and muslim’ lmao Do not let the rot destroy you. Choose culture and life. The other way produces nothing..

  • Maybe you didn’t take the right Approach because if your parents are that involved they definitely wouldn’t want u to be in the wrong .. they’ve lived a life and they lived twice as much.. so listen more. Keep an open mindset. Don’t belittle their love and care .. specially if they’re willing to take a trip across the globe to support u.

  • This is on trending ?

  • Wow, it’s on trending!

  • Ya know ure selfish boii. Ur mother n father know bestt. I think ur parent just like my parent. They think im too young n dont know anything n im soo angry. . Now i understand why thy dont let me do wat i want bcs I'mm soo shit n young that time and i thanks them to show me the right way. Ya know man nothing wrong to be gay but just dont be gay dont.
