BIRMINGHAM - Robert Hedley, 15, is just like any other gay teen his age. However, lately, he feels different.
"Oh..." he said. "It was horrible. I wanted to do things to other people. I felt wierd inside... I wanted to rip out my soul."
Hedley, who came out at 13, has a stable relationship with his boyfriend, Nick.
"I started to do things a little differently," he said. "I wanted to burn down abortion clinics, punch ethnic minorities in the face... urggh... these urges are just tearing me apart."
His mother, Eloise, had found several copies of the UKIP manifesto under his bed, along with swastikas and Tea Party logos.
In fact, at school he complained that Hitler was too liberal in his Religious Studies class.
"I was shocked," said Mr. Robinson. "I thought he'd take the stance against the man. But no, he said that 'Hitler' was a 'pussy' for not doing enough." After the lesson, Hedley was found crying by the bins.
"I don't care," said his mother. "My child can be any political view he wants. I will still love him in the same way."
However, his father, John, does not agree with his wife.
"NO. WAY," he said, firmly. "I ain't gonna pay for him to join the BNP or UKIP or whatever in a campaign. No gay son of mine will be a rightist."
