We open with Piper sitting in the front seat of her car with her eyes shut, looking frustrated.
PIPER:(sighs) I don't know if I should do this right now. I don't even want to do this...I don't. I'm just so fricking...
She turns to face the camera.
PIPER: No, you know what? I am. I'm going to talk about it cos I just don't want...OK, as you can see, I'm currently in my car and that's because I'm kind of like, living out of there at the moment, because I don't live at home anymore.
Caption: PIPE UP
PIPER: I just can't, like, I just...the hypocrisy in that house is, like, next level. It's out of this world. My dad attacked my boyfriend...which, like, it's been brewing for a while...and it just...yeah, happened. It feels like I...I've tried forever with them to take my relationship seriously and...they don't. And they won't. And they never will. And I just need to come to terms with that. They're just...they don't get it, they don't get that I'm in love with Tyler.
She looks surprised with herself.
PIPER: I said his name!
PIPER: Yes, there you go, Tyler, that's his name. That's my boyfriend's name. It's not a big deal, it's not hurting anyone. What does hurt is when you systematically do everything you can so two people can't be together. And, like, when that doesn't work, you just...
PIPER: ...you go for brute force.
She puts a hand over her face.
PIPER: Fricking Neanderthal.
She pauses to think.
PIPER: It's so...disrespectful. How am I mean to live with people who don't have any respect for me?
She is interrupted by a loud miaow, and looks towards the back seat of the car, where Clementine is in a cat travelling box.
PIPER:(giggling) Not you. You're fine, Clem. Clem loves me and I love Clem.
She looks back at the camera.
PIPER: It's actually a really big deal me bringing Clem. It made it really official. Last year, my mum and my dad split up...er...because my dad cheated on her. And...I would have been, like, well within my right to say, 'You know what? Like, you walked out on our family, I don't want you in my life anymore.' But I didn't. I didn't, because I respect my dad. And I respected his new relationship... And no, it's not my favourite thing in the world, but...he made that decision and...
PIPER: ...I respected that, you know? I can't remember what video it was in, ages ago...reading your comments...I think it was Jayden Ganner? I think? So they shared their coming out stories to their family in my comment section. And...that's huge, that's huge for a person to do. Thinking about, like, how my dad would have reacted to that.
PIPER: You know, if it doesn't fit into his 18 year plan for his daughter, then he doesn't want hear it, he *won't* hear it, and he *won't* deal with it. You guys are really lucky. That your parents were so supportive.
She looks sad.
PIPER: Yeah, that's it. Sorry, guys, this isn't like a...yeah. Don't be, like, alarmed if I'm not posting and stuff, I just don't know where I'm going to be.
PIPER: Alright, see you.
She switches off the camera.
