The Most Startling Thing I've Ever Read On Facebook
Usually, Facebook is a place for laughs, rants about Madonna, innuendo-laden images, self-promotion, and sarcasm, but a guy just left this way more serious posting about his terrible interactions with his relations:
"We are not family. Never was. Never will be.
"I will not stand behind an African American family in 2012 that does not support gay rights in America, nor shall I allow my absentee father [to] allow family members to ridicule me and still consider me family.
"I stand up for what I believe in.
"I am a homosexual that was molested for over a decade by a registered sex offender and also by an Olympic Gold Medalist from age 5 to 14.
"I have retained my statement as the truth and I speak up for abused victims.
"I do not care what any [one] thinks about me.
"I know it's shameless but I have a story to tell.
"I have a message to send that it is not okay and never will be okay."
