If it was more extreme in my family, it would be like the gays... but my family isn't there yet. They don't reject me or my brother; they just preach at us.
It is annoying and supremely irritating, but it's not hurtful, like I imagine it must be for gays rejected (not welcome) by their families.
But it is like not being allowed to be who we are in peace
(without being preached at or witnessed to).
