beth,

sorry if you didn't want all this attention and a thousand internet people discussing your life and throwing opinions here there and everywhere but you posted about something and it's important you hear what everyone's saying, even if all you take from it is that everyone is filled with love for you and all that and we don't think you should have to put up with the shit you've been having to put up with.

after you've spoken to your mum, if it looks like it's not going to get better for you, or even that it might get worse, please consider contacting your local children and young people's service, whatever it's called, because they're set up to help with stuff like this. despite the fact that it's how i spend my working days, i'm usually reticent about advising people to follow that path. but if the guy is not going to start behaving
by himself and your mum is not going to stop him, then you should find help from other people because there are other people who can help.

(i'm assuming you're under 18 in this post - i think that's right).

i don't want to get involved in the debate any more than to say that.

Dear LPTJ,

wow. thanks guys.

I don't think this is the kind of thing that calls for lawyer or the police. I will be moving out in august, and it's already been agreed that I'll be staying with my sisters for summers. This guy IS a total creep, but luckily part of his creepiness is that he only comes around every once in a while.

As far as the sexual stuff goes, that was yet another creepy man in my mother's life, but not the same one. this man doesn't really talk at all.

Thank you so much for all of the advice, but I feel like at this point I just need to sit it out for a few more months and then be done with it. I mean, I'm a bit old to be adopted. I'll be 18 in September, it's just a matter of waiting. I have had to leave this house before when I really felt like I was in danger, and I know how that feels. This doesn't really feel like that, though. It was just shocking that he would overstep his boundaries that way. I'm not BEATEN, I'm not in terrible physical pain. I was just shocked that he would raise his hand agasint me, you know? He usually shows up around two in the morning and is gone by the time I wake up. I very rarely spend more than thirty seconds with  him, and I can't help but feel that any kind of report would ruin my mom's life without being of much assistance for me. If I was still thirteen I would think about it, but for now I think I'll just pretend not to notice next time our water stops working. heh.

Thanks for making me feel empowered and loved. I would spend 10 to 25 percent more of my time in a shakey haze if you guys weren't around.

Love,
Beth

QFT.  

Do you at least have a friend's house you can stay over at just in case, though?  I've had bad home situations (for totally different reasons), and just having a back up plan even if I never used it made me feel a lot safer.

Dear Beth

I am happy, no, overjoyed that there is an upper limit to how much harm this man is likely to do to you. I'm sure you have all the equipment to deal with this. I hope that the two of you lose touch with each other before this becomes any worse.

Dear Beth,

Do you have stairs in your house? Think about Ted from Buffy if he ever does it again. I mean you do sound equipped to deal with it fine, but that makes a satisfying backup plan.

Hoping he fucks off soon,
Anne

Dear Motherfuckin' Spammers,

We don't mind spambots so much, but at least keep it interesting. How about some Pynchon excerpts or some remarkably human "my first post" banter? You guys are getting boooooring, and boring doesn't make me want to look p0rn or buy discounted health insurance.*

So, make it interesting, or we won't even look at the thread, bitches.

Thx,

T.W.

PS: i lied. i look at p0rn b/c I'm bored. constantly.

Oh shit now I feel awful, posting on top of that powerful discussion.

I don't have any great advice, but I can very much empathize with the mom's asshole boyfriend/stepdad syndrome. That pretty much sums up my adolescent life entirely. So, hang in there. You are going up, and that fuck is going down.  Evil or Very Mad

tops,

porn is serious business! by suggesting otherwise you don't just do yourself down, you do down approximately two hundred and fifty million web pages. that content and its presentation didn't make itself!

there was a documentary on tv last night about teenage boys who are addicted to porn. there was one kid who got arrested because one of his friends from school got him to flash on a webcam and their mum saw, and one kid who loaded up the computer every time his mum left the room, and another kid who just liked looking at porn but was a bit of a dick. the weird thing was they all were in this documentary and their families were all in it too, it was like, no shit, as if this overweight kid, this computer geek and this spotty dude didn't have enough trouble at school already. not thati'm condoning that attitude and i applaud the doc's honesty and that of all involved but still. plus it was a bit of a waste of time. conclusion: kids like porn. internet provides it in massive quantities. this may be problematic, but we're not quite sure how. uh, yeah, thanks for that.

nowhere near as good as the "drama documentary" (best genre ever, for real) about the possibility of a supervolcanic erruption from under yellowstone park, but it was a two parter and i don't know when the second part is.

for some reason feeling like keeping you informed on my previous evening's activities today,

alistair
