Parents Disown Teenage Daughter after Discovering She Is Gay
We (fortunately) live in a world where same-sex relationships, marriage, adoption and everything in between is becoming more and more understood, accepted and celebrated. But there are still some people who haven’t yet quite grasped the idea of letting people live as happily as they possibly can. Take Emily Scheck’s parents for example. On discovering that their daughter is a lesbian they completely disowned her – telling her that she either quit university and get conversion therapy or get cut off. The 19-year-old, who is currently studying for a business degree, refused to quit school which meant she found herself homeless and broke. According to the Metro, her dad even removed the registration plates from her car and refused to pay the insurance when he and his wife discovered her sexual preference after they saw a picture of Emily with her girlfriend in August. Shortly afterwards Emily’s dad drove to Canisius College, in Buffalo, New York, where she is on a partial athletic scholarship, and gave her personal belongings including clothes, photographs and even her birth certificate. Emily told the Buffalo News she had received a text from her mother that read: “Well, I am done with you. As of right now, you declare yourself independent. You are on your own. Please don’t contact us or your siblings…. Because you disgust me.”
