    PLEASE READ THIS REVIEW!!! URGENT MESSAGE FROM LEADER OF TAJ( Teens Against Judgement)

    Hullo, my name is Wesley Dickens, and I am a homosexual teenager.
    Hear me out.
    So many gay teens live their entire adolescence in fear, not wanting to, "Come Out," and only a handful of us actually understand the severity of doing so. Most are terrified that they will lose family or close friends due to stereotypes.
    And I'm not going to lie to you.
    You fears aren't as farfetched as you would hope. When I came out, I lost a few of the close loved ones I treasured, several of the bonds I held close to my heart shattered. Hearing my step-father and uncle, the ones who were supposed to protect me from bashing and hurt, call me a faggot...I was emotionally wrecked. I trusted my step-father more than my own biological father.
    But you aee, I realized something; If someone can't stand by you anymore simply because you like the same sex, then they were undeserving of me. I still love those that abandoned me, but if there opinion isn't going to affect me 20 years from now, then I shouldn't care what they think of me in the present.
    I am by no means urging you to open up about who you are if you're not ready. Take all the time you need. Just know that you WILL feel the burden lift once you do. Tis nothing better than realizing that you can be who YOU are. Not what everyone else wants you to be.
    Food for thought...

    Poorly-written, no character development, and extreme situations

    Poorly-written, no character development, and extreme situations which could not possibly occur in real life. Since this is not a science fiction or alternate universe story, it's hard to take seriously.

    Rushed job. JD

    Points off for changing names. (Nicholas to Nickolas back to Nicholas and Hank to Frank.) Overly-dramatic. Predictable. Needs an editor for grammar and spelling. Not terrible.
