Did we miss anyone?


  1. James Charles has motivated me to come out and now my parents want to get a divorce and are shouting at each other in another room because of my sexual orientation. :))))

    UPDATE: 2 years later and my dad now beats his meat daily because now he is lonely and he beats me while silently crying. He tells me it’s not my fault but I cannot help thinking it is:(((. He drinks a lot now as well like every day.

    SO… Thanks James Charles. XDDDD
