Buddy never really liked his parents, and they never truly got along. They argued and disagreed and butted heads over almost everything. They didn't see eye-to-eye on politics, to religion, to lifestyle and how to raise good healthy happy kids.
Buddy is an atheist, while his parents are very devout Muslims. Buddy is very liberal, while his parents are very conservative. And, Buddy is also unapologetically gay, while his parents, not surprisingly, are extremely homophobic.
But, even though on the inside it was really clear that he didn't get along with his parents, he was never very public or vocal about his disagreements with his parents.He still needed a roof over his head, and food to eat, and money in his pocket, and he was afraid that if he shared who he really was and what he really believed too strongly they would kick him out of the house, maybe even disown him.
Because of that, he formed what looked like a good relationship with his parents, but it was totally fake and artificial - on the inside, he just didn't get along with them. They saw him as being practically perfect, a good and trustworthy kid, but Buddy saw that his parents were really flawed.
His mom liked to hold grudges, was very quick to judge people, and liked to enforce really old fashioned gender roles, like boys should do yard work and take out the trash and that girls only belonged in the kitchen and were destined to become subservient housewives. And his father was so invested and distracted by his work that he never formed and real bonds with his children.
He was also upset at the way his four sisters were treated. His parents wouldn't allow his sisters to have any friends over. They weren't allowed to have phones, or do any extra curricular activities, or drive once they reached the age where they could legally get their licenses.
And it was even worse with Buddy, especially when he tried to come out to them and tell them he was gay - twice. The first time, his parents begged him to date girls because they saw his coming out as a real threat to them. The second time he tried they just threw out a slew of insults and homophobic falsehoods ranging from the idea that gay people were in fact mentally ill, to the idea that it was a simple choice and he was just making the wrong one. They threatened to disown him and told him he would be a failure in life unless he "fixed himself."
This all made him so unhappy and he imagined that he would be under the control of his parents for the rest of his life. So, he felt he had to continue to pretend to be the perfect little straight Muslim boy in the house, dating girls and praying and the rest. He didn't think much of it, had been doing it pretty much his whole life, but when he finally confided in his friends they saw it for what it was, miserable and very, very unhealthy. They asked him to imagine what he would be and how he would feel if he was far enough away from them that they couldn't watch his every move, and judge and control him.
That was a turning point for him and, realizing his parents were more like prison guards than anything else, he thought of the farthest place he could go without them having a negative impact on him and still be successful and thrive as a young gay man.
After doing a little bit of research he concluded that California would be the best place for him -- a thriving LGBT community, a ton of diversity and acceptance, and on the other side of the country from his toxic family life and parents. So, he applied to a few schools in California and, was accepted to attend UCLA! It was one of the happiest moments of his life.
His parents were hesitant about it at first, because of how far away it was, but they were happy to have him go to such a highly acclaimed school - that's mostly what they cared about.
Since moving to Los Angeles Buddy has never been happier. He is part of a really diverse community with amazing friends, endless support, and a great education. Even though he returns home on Holidays and has to pretend, just like he used to, he is so happy to be out of that toxic house and on his own.
His next wish is for his sisters, that they will recognize the truth about their parents, follow in his footsteps, and escape!

storybooth being conservative on both religion and politics is perhaps the deadliest thing those parents identified as. I’m Muslim, but I truly wouldn’t go as far as those two on that poor guy. Strangely enough, the Quran isn’t meant to be a weapon by parents on children, however the boy’s parents were. They made stupid moves and all I can say is whatever makes that guy happy, right?

Fuck you and fuck UKvid for getting this on trending. You wouldn't be in this world if it wasn't for your parents you ungrateful bitch. Using the word "gay" and making yourself seem like the victim doesn't work kay? This is why the world is fucked. A kid is disrespecting 2 people who raised him and instead of making the people understand how he felt, He's just putting up an act and abandoning them and telling his sisters to do the same. And this is what UKvid promotes.. Wow. Just wow.

You wanna know why bec I'm Muslim and Muslims don't accept the LGBT Group, they don't bully but the just leave them alone. When it comes to close ppl then they open up. The parents are wrong and are supposed to be nice. But they are right bec they don't want there son to go to hell. Since being gay, lesbian, pansexual, Bisexual, etc. In our religion can give you a free ticket to hell

I am glad this person have the courage to pursue his dreams despite what his parents have done to him. Even though his parents took good care of him, there are times where enough is enough. When It might seem bad and mean to some people to hate your family, but when too much negativity is thrown to you by your parents, it can get to a person, really hard. The parents might have been afraid of changes as they could have been raised that way, thus believing in what they do is right. So when changes they have not touched before comes to them, they feel threatened and lash out. Thus resulting in what they have now. I'm glad this person in the video is fine now and if possible, I think they could try talking to each other someday again, they don't have to agree to either views but they could try to respect and understand the views of the other party P.s: Phew, longest comment I have written so far. Whoever read this, have a good day!!

I disagree and agree with this kid. His parents shouldn’t do this even if I’m the Quran it says women and man are to only be married they should just suggest him to stop and leave the punishment to god. But this kid is not right in the part that his sisters should “escape” every kid has to do chores I as a boy take out the trash. And maybe they don’t have phones became their parents don’t want them to and the driving part because they want their kids to be adults before they take the wheel. Have a nice life now but beware of the after life...

I am muslim and my parents aren’t like that at all here he’s representing muslims as really bad peapole but in reality we’re nice. peapole might think of us muslims as tearorists but muslims aren’t terrorist some peapole that are muslims are bad peapole (just like any person with any relagion might have peapole in there religon that are bad peapole) and they think what they are doing is right but what they are doing is totaly the oppisite of what the quran (are religions) sais we should do.

I get that you're mad but you should not say stuff like that about your parents because no matter what they will always love and care about you after all they're the reason you are actually born so you gotta appreciate that This is not❌ a hate comment It's just my personal opinion hope you understand ❤💜💓

So you broke family ties, and belittled your human parents because they're imperfect and think you're so much better because you're liberal, AND on top of all that you want your sisters to also break their connection with your parents who have taken care of you for so long (and continue to do so I assume)......right, that's how society should function. May your path be guided

everyone will find a reason to make the muslims seem wrong.In the holy Quran LGBT is not allowed,if you are offended,it is our belief.We are told not to judge,God will judge them.Muslims are strict in american countries because they fear we will be influenced by their wrongs. There are abusive parents that come in all religion,race,and culture.

Your parents love you and care for you that's why they worked their ass off to get you education and food everyday then you go off complaining about that your DAD never gave you time? Nigga did YOU ever try to understand your father??? No you DID NOT. You talked about who you are and opened up to your parents for who you are, YOU DID THAT FOR YOURSELF! ever tried to do something for your parents? Seriously this video is very misleading. All the kids who are gonna watch this will be misled so much. You escaped? You never escaped. You were always stuck with your delusional thoughts, that's all. They raised you, and the way you described about your relation between you and your parents is very shit ass wrong. It's almost like nigga is acting like immaturet. Look kid I am a fuking proud Muslim for sure and what you did is wrong. You know one day you will die and will have to face in front of Allah and answer Him that why you made a misleading video like this. Like literally kids will watch this and get more triggered about THEIR own parents. and kids who are gonna watch this aside from my religious talk pls I want you to understand is dont be like this dude. I know you are going through hard time because of the teen life or maybe your parents are not that kind of parents which you see on the internet. But in the end please if they dont understand you..for once think of yourself as the father/mother and think of your parents as if they were 9 years old kid. Maybe they went through rough time that's they became like that. I know it feels cool to talk shit about your parents. But that's it, it will only look cool but not right. Dont build up hatred. Please dont. It's not worth it kiddo.
