My siblings are trying to turn my father against my boyfriend. I realize this is the first time they've seen me with anyone, but how do I get them to stop saying things like,

"You should throw a bullet at him and tell him they move much faster after midnight." ? It's irritating that they think I should stay in the house. I'm 17, for heavens sake.

Hi Silver Pool, and welcome to Scarleteen.

Have you asked them not to say things like that? If so, how did that go?

If I understand you correctly, they're saying things like that to or in front of your father. How does he respond?

I'm not sure who the "they" are who think you should stay in the house. Your siblings, or your whole family, or...? Is it having an effect on you being able to leave the house, or is the problem simply their opinion?

The kyriarchy usually assumes that I am the kind of woman of whom it would approve. I have a peculiar kind of fun showing it just how much I am not.

I've asked them not to, but per the norm, I've been ignored.

He doesn't say anything, either agreeing with them or not. I feel like he should be there for me.

My family. It's not affecting my ability to leave, but the whispering when I do, and when I come back, is unnerving me.
