Was pointed out to me that this could be misleading people, so I am sorry, but this is basically fiction, though I write for those that are unable to do so for themselves...
Whipped beyond recognition,
Skin ripped from the bone,
Lash marks never totally heal,
And just for copping a feel…
Daddy caught me,
He screamed & shouted,
He sometimes used a 2X4,
I wish I had just gone to the store…
I was just curious,
I didn’t realize it would make him furious,
So what if it was another boy,
I don’t like girls all that much,
Nothing on them for me to clutch…
He called me a faggot,
He wouldn’t have a homo in his home,
He threw me out into the street,
But not before senseless he did of me beat,
And mommy just “egged” him on,
She said, you’re not my son,
You’ve always been so petite…
(to be continued…)

|I can honestly say that I have no tolerance for the intolerant. I always figgered that whatever two consenting adults do 'twixt the sheets is none of my business, nor concern. Besides, there's so damned much hate in this world, what possibly can be wrong with love? It's the haters who have the problem. Not only do they dwell on sex, but on OTHER people having sex. Pass the word....

|Excellent Ed, all should be accepted for who they are. I have little tolerance for those who do not. It is no-one's place to judge a soul, and actually it is their own insecurity who causes this behavior. They only care for what others may think and should not. If it were my child, I would never judge them for their choices. I love my children and know all that is important is I love them and want what's best for them. I accept all they love, for they are my precious child and I will stand behind them always.
Beautiful Ed, isn't it say because we know this happens.
Love and Light

|It's sad that in a modern country like the US it's not possible to be yourself, and have to hide your feelings.
Very good to make us aware of this sad situation, awareness is the base for acceptance and tolerance.
Thanks Ed, keep using your freedom of speech to draw the attention to poignant sorrow.

|Okay, never thought you were so cruelly dominated. I guess this is you you are talking about, if not you are misleading people. I shy away from the sexual identification situation in this country. Work it out yourself, you don't need to air everything out in public.|

|I am a member of P-FLAG. I hate the thought of anyone going through such cruelty! My son is gay and I'm proud as hell of him! He is a wonderful person. Good luck!
