  • My mother continually votes for people who don’t think i should exist.

    I’m a biracial Nonbinary Queer person living in canada, and I’ve recently not only learned that my mom is a Trump Supporter, but her boyfriend is as well.

    She consistently says mildly racist remarks, and when I discovered her current boyfriend owns a MAGA hat and memorabilia related to the trucker strike in Ottowa recently. I expressed how uncomfortable this made me the other day, and she refused to take me seriously, putting me down and saying things like “ you KNOW he’d never hurt you”, when I have no way of being sure.

    Then she continued to bring up how “there’s a document about all the good trump did that nobody reads”, and when I brought up that broadly the good didn’t really matter due to how transphobic and homophobic (among other things) he is. She then said “ do you have any cons that have nothing to do with you being trans and gay”. There are many, but these should also matter to her because I, her child that she had with a black man, am trans and gay. When I brought up the fact that he is racist, she just sighed and changed the subject.

    I don’t know what to do, is there any way I can be removed from her custody or something so I don’t have to stay with her any longer. I know I’m now old enough for emancipation, but I have no money and am unable to work because I am not able bodied (I can barely walk most days). Does anyone have any suggestions ?

    Hi,

    Thank you for reaching out to the National Runaway Safeline and sharing your story. We know that takes a lot of bravery. You do not deserve to live in a home where you feel unsafe and invalidated.

    It was a great first step for you to talk to your mom, and we’re sorry that the conversation did not work out. You are very strong. You may find it helpful to grow your support system by talking about your mom and her boyfriend to others in your life, like friends, significant others, or trusted adults, like other family members, teachers/school counselors, or friends’ parents. Unfortunately, our database of resources only applies to those living in the United States, but you could try reaching out to Kids Help Phone, a resource similar to us for youth living in Canada, at kidshelpphone.ca.

    Thank you again for reaching out to the National Runaway Safeline and sharing your story. Your feelings are completely valid. Best of luck!
    Please remember you can reach us directly by calling our 24 hour hotline, 1-800-RUNAWAY (786-2929) or through our Live Chat.
