    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!

        Well maybe you should stop being gay cause you will go to hell☹

      3. Anon

        Wow this is really really really wrong. You should not be promoting kids to distance themselves from their parents. This kid is young and confused and he doesn't know how much he'll regret this when he is older. You should know better storybooth. Kids, whoever is reading this: respect and listen to your parents, they know better than you.

    8. Vladimir Enlow

      The sad part is that by upholding their kids to these rigid standards, Buddy's parents are losing the chance to form lasting bonds with their kids. They've already lost Buddy, and sooner or later his sisters will rebel too. In their old age, they'll end up either completely ignored or barely tolerated by their children, never really comprehending what they did wrong.

    9. Katelyn Heath

      when he said UCLA like it was nothing i was shook

    10. Fired Crystal :p

      I'm bisexual

    11. Nathalie Alowou

      I feel like things like these keep enforcing the stereotype that all religious people are homophobic but it's not true. I'm catholic and if anyone ever tried to bully one of my friends because of their sexuality then I would murder them. Not literally tho lol, because 2 wrongs make one person in jail, one dead and the other insecure and hurt and none of those are right

    12. BonBon :3

      I absolutely love California! But it’s just too expensive. I used to live there but now I live in Utah because it’s cheaper. Anyways, California’s so diverse, accepting, as well as liberal. They accept you for who you are no matter what race, what you believe in, and if your LGBT(Q) or not. I, myself dream about living in California again, just a little homesick!! (: I really wanted to get into Cal (go Cal football team!) because it’s in the city as well as down the street from where I used to live! (Berkeley.) I’m glad you got into UCLA, I’ve heard great things about that school. I support you, and encourage you to embrace your “gayness?” I’m bisexual, so this made me put a smile on my face. You’ll make it far!! -xoxo, Avery

      This story is good I just am against atheists because SOME of them kill black cats on Halloween and put razors in kids apples. BUT I’m not saying HE does!

    14. Gacha Tuber Kathi

      Awww I'm so happy you have a good life! LGBT forever!

    15. Ally _

      I’m gay

    16. Adam Pierce

      I knew he was gay the moment I read the thumbnail...

    17. A r i i

      I’m pretty sure Muslims can’t have girlfriends/boyfriends if you are under 18yo and I’m sure that you can’t be gay if you are Muslim but you HAVE to respect the others who are actually no,they HAVE to RESPECT EVERYONE AND ANYONE even if they are rude or kind,male,female,gay,straight I’ve learned a lot about Muslims in schools and they aren’t dangerous at all if “Muslims “ are doing bad things Don’t dare say they are Muslims. Yes everyone makes mistakes but Muslims aren’t as what people say they are all love I respect everyone

    18. Pickle Destroyer

      Everyone should have a right to choose who to love! If you’re a guy and you were born gay, love a dude! >:O

    19. Zoe Marie

      Wow there is someone just like me.

    20. Paola Joselin Muro Nuño

      I know everything he's going through ... I'm currently going through this ...

    21. Danny McCarthy

      I wish it were that easy to escape an unhealthy living situation. I as well as many friends suffer abusive family members and stressful situations at home, but leaving and finding peace with yourself if the hardest thing. especially when you have no income or no hope of getting an income.

    22. IllusionARE FATAL

      I knew he was gay instantly on the title of the video.

    23. Chihoko Is Great

      I’m too scared to tell my parents I’m Pansexual.....;-;

    24. Arwa Altaher

      i mean islam is islam it wont be changed for one person

    25. Abigail Thompson

      Just by seeing the title, I knew this was about homosexuality. It makes me sad that homophobia still exists. I just hope it wipes out (mostly) like racism. I’m happy I can marry the woman I love, but seeing everyday homophobia scares me. I just hope we move ahead.

    26. BOI OOF

      For some reason I'm getting so many bad vibes about this, plus isn't this mixing up many things?? I don't like this guy one bit! Plus I would wanna hear the parents and sister's part of the story. All I'm getting from this guy is *Oh man I hate my parents cause they are not agreeing with everything that I want to do oh they must be evil then! Oh man my parents are monsters because they don't believe everything I do is right cause I'm always right*

      I understand you too, but I'm not homo or Muslim btw. I understand him because I know some of the rules of Muslim people and YES! They can't be one of LGBT. But I feel so bad that he was treated like that by his parents.

    50. Kitty Claws

      I know he dislikes his parents because of the way they see things, but what he said was kinda inappropriate, unnecessary and rude. He sounds like one of those wanna be drag queens.
