Reading stories like this angers me, and really shakes me to my core. 

A bisexual woman on Twitter is making waves on social media after sharing videos of her dad sharing his very open views about her being bisexual, and for suffering from depression.

In two videos posted on her Twitter account, the woman’s father can be heard in the background ranting about her bisexuality and mental health issues.

She posted one of the videos and captioned it: "Everyone else: can’t wait to go home for Easter!! Love being back with my parents xx Me, with my homophobic, disrespectful parents who don’t understand mental health."

“You’re not bisexual you f***ing idiot. You’re not bisexual. Jesus Christ. You’re an intelligent, sensible girl so don’t demean yourself by pigeonholing yourself," he said. She replied to him, saying: “If I want to have sex with a girl, I’ll have sex with a girl. If I want to marry a girl, I’ll marry a girl.”

He also added that she can sleep with whomever she wants, but he firmly believes that she is “not bisexual.”

I didn't include the video here due to strong language, but if you want to check it out, click here to watch it.

I cannot believe that she managed to get through this all with a smile on her face. I'm not too sure how I would have reacted in a similar situation. I too applaud her for standing for what she believes in. 

My belief is that you need to put yourself first and do what makes you happy. Love yourself and know your worth. 

What's the one opinion that your parents have that you wish you could change?
