No you can't make him be honest but you Can make your way out the door.
Rule of thumb if you don't feel secure in a relationship or are profoundly (really, profoundly?) disturbed, it's not the relationship for you.

That's horrible, beyond horrible. Sadly not at all whole unfamiliar.
I couldn't watch beyond a minute in. I could see in the father's stance it was all about sex and power. He was angry because she wasn't displaying the humiliating and high sexual pose he wanted her to assume. I didn't watch long enough to see the Mother but from the sound of it she's use to these beatings on her.
Best of luck to the daughter. It's going to take time and major therapy to get over an upbringing like this. I know. I'm 32 and I still have an aversion to being touched even by friends or my partner. I'm slowly getting better but it's a long road.
The father stole more than his daughter's dignity, he stole her future from her. Jackass. Prison is to good for him.

This isn't new information. For you lucky people that didn't grow up in a fundamentalist Christian home I'll explain. Yoga is seen as a competent of meditation. When you take deep breathes and clear your mind you go into a type of trance. This opens your psyche, or something, to invading demons who are just hanging around looking for a brain to invade and a soul to steal. So when you stretch and soothe your muscles in Yoga you are laying out the welcome mat for hijacking demons. Those buggers will take over your body and mind and drive you straight into hell.
I'm not even exaggerating. That is exactly what they believe.

"he [Santorum] even got an endorsement of sorts from conservative talk show host Glenn Beck, who told Santorum earlier this year that he could “kiss him in the mouth” for maintaining a principled stand".
Sounds like Glenn, at the very least, is interested in tasting the flavor.

The above recommendations are all good and worth considering. I personally urge you to drop the defeatist attitude.
The American Heritage Dictionary define this as:
Acceptance of or resignation to the prospect of defeat.
Your letter to Dan and the disclaimer on your blog were nice embodiments of defeatism.
My advice: Be excited about your writing and your ideas and other people will be excited as well. Not a single person will want to read your blog if you don't believe in it yourself.

Everyone missed the ball on this question. It comes down to how well did CUTS knew the transman? It is my impression that he didn't know him well at all. This wasn't a friend, this was an acquaintance at best. If that's the case the question itself was presumptuous. Would you really ask such a personal question of someone you barely knew?
The only reason CUTS asked the question is because the transman was trans. One thing CUTS needs to learn about stealth in the trans community and how trans people just want to be treated like anyone else. They are not there to answer the personal questions that revolve around them beings trans.
