Lesbian Athlete Rejected by Family

Quote:
When Emily Scheck stayed put in Buffalo to continue working toward her business degree as a student-athlete, her parents followed through on their promise, she said, right down to depositing her childhood belongings and birth certificate in her parked car and leaving with the license plates, since they were no longer paying the insurance.


Quote:
Timothy Scheck said the family has apologized for the harsh messages and said comments about disowning their daughter were meant to pressure her to return home. When the parents insisted on counseling, they did not mean conversion therapy, he told The Buffalo News .



Quote:
With her story gaining attention, the NCAA last week said Scheck could retain her eligibility and, under monitoring from the school, continue to accept donations for living and educational expenses.


Where's Glenn? I smell a conspiracy.

Not too shocking to me....I grew up in Western New York, a particularly weird little enclave of homophobia. The youngest of 6 kids, my siblings haven't talked to me in over 20 years since I came out to them at age 39, deliberately shunning me til I "change". NOT the brightest folks. Razz

Fortunately for Emily, she's living in a more enlightened time, when people will rally to her cause. What's also heartening is to see that Canisius, a religious institution (Jesuit), is supportive of her, too.

Well, thank you for your empathy. The simple truth is--family or not--one is better off without that negativity in one's life.

Yes, MAGAmorons abound up there. The best part of that is the fact that they must abide the ever-Democratic wave that is NY. Razz
