Lesbian: Why were you late?
Young girl: I spent the night with my boyfriend.
Lesbian: You have every right to do that.
Young girl: My father says he is married and will not let me be with him.
Lesbian: The UN charter gives you the right of association.
Young girl: My father grounded me for a month.
Lesbian: That is abuse. Has he ever hit you?
Young girl: He slapped me last week.
Young girl: I called him an arse hole.
Lesbian: He assaulted you. That is violence and a matter to take to police.
Young girl: Who will give me bus fare and school lunch money?
Lesbian: I will put you down on file as a survivor of domestic violence.
Young girl: Thank you.
Lesbian: Go to the police and I can have you put into care. You can live with me,
