How to kick your gay child out of the house without feeling guilty about it by Suicide Blonde
When I was 18, about a year after I came out, my parents started dropping some heavy hints that they didn’t really want me in the house anymore.  They’d spent the last year doing various kinds of anti-me acts, ranging from the ridiculous (read all about it!) to the cruel.  But it was when they decided to move out of the house we’d lived in since I was 12 that I realized they weren’t planning on my coming with them.
My parents are middle-class with a touch of yuppie and as such, never like to discuss unpleasant things, nor ever do anything that others could gossip about.  The most important thing to them was (and still is) to maintain the appearance of the perfect Christian family.  Me and my piercings and my flagrant homosexual’ing was not fitting into this ideal, rather distracting from it more and more with each new crazy secular fad I would embrace.  My mother would grimace at the sight of two tiny tattoos on my feet, would silently rebuke me as I came home from the bar at 2 in the morning, would sniff in disgust at the smell of cigarette smoke on me.  Unfortunately for her and my father, this same need to keep up appearances also precluded the option of simply telling me that they wanted me out of their home.   However, years of passive aggressiveness had trained my mother in the fine art of saying it without saying it.
First she told me that “they didn’t feel comfortable supporting your lifestyle.”  In saying ‘supporting your lifestyle’ she actually meant that they didn’t feel comfortable feeding and putting a roof over my lesbian head.  When she told me that they (and it was always them, not us) were planning on selling the house, she told me to expect severe rules at ‘their new house.’  She told me that there would be a strict curfew put in place and that I would be expected to be home every night by 11, where my brother, two years older and in college like I was, would still be allowed to come and go as he pleased.
