That point in time where you finally have to cut your father completely out of your life. I mean, I know it is for the best, but holy fuck is it hard. I feel sad and guilty and guilty about being guilty. 26 years of this is enough though. It is enough.

A Florida family says their 18-year-old daughter was charged with a felony and expelled from high school as a result of a consensual, same-sex relationship with another student.
Kaitlyn Hunt started dating a female classmate at the beginning of the school year when she was 17 and the girl she was dating was 15. According to an account posted to Facebook by Kaitlyn’s mother, in February, just after Kaitlyn turned 18, she was arrested on felony charges at the behest of her girlfriend’s parents. The specific crime was “sexual battery on a person 12-16 years old.”
Kaitlyn’s mother believes the charges were motivated by anti-gay animus:

Kaitlyn’s mom reports that the State Attorney, Brian Workman, has offered Kaitlyn a plea deal of “of two years house arrest and one year probation.” Kaitlyn has until next Friday to accept the plea deal or face a trial.
The family has started a petition calling on the state attorney to drop the charges against Kaitlyn.

my dumb heart from my dumb
chest and I would place it…
