Is this abuse?

My parents pretty much ignore me whenever I have a problem. They tell me to "walk it off". A psychologist once told me they needed to take me to the hospital and if they didn't, it could be reported for abuse. They said she didn't know what she was talking about. I told them that I was genderqueer. And my mom is still subtly giving me female roles. Every time I correct her she just scoffs and gets angry. She makes me lie to everyone about my gender so that THEY don't get embarrassed by MY gender. They believe rumors rather then their own kid and say I'm looking for attention. They do a lot more too. But at the same time, they take me on vacations (we went to Asia this summer) and we do a lot of fun stuff together. So I don't know if it's abuse or not.

It's Either Abuse-
Or naracism.
Either way, it's wrong and needs to stop.

@neefflove I'm not going to call 911. And if I tell a counselor or something then my parents will get REALLY pissed!

Well if it really is abuse then your school will look into it and get you the help you need. If your parents are pissed then your school or maybe child services will handle it, but if you communicate to your counselor and your parents that you just want to get your feelings out there and help them to understand then if your parents are responsible they will get See More▼

Sorry to butt in, but please don't call 911 unless you are in immediate danger. 911 is for emergencies. If you really feel like your parents are mistreating you then talk to a school counselor or teacher and they will get you the help you need @Me1234

Some cases of sexual assult you would not call 911 for, you would report them... that's the same for this. Unless they feel threatened then calling 911 would cause trouble. Now a help line or social services that is a diffrent story. Talking to a responsible adult who knows how to handle these situations and not young kids on the internet is what should be done.

I apologize, but sexual assault isn't something you need to call 911 for?
It's the same situation here- this is mental abuse, and it is serious. @neefflove

I wasn't saying that it is not a serious, but it is not an immediate threat to there life. That is what 911 is for. Talking to a responsible 3rd party adult would be the way to go.

... It's fine, but I have to object.
Your mental health DOES effect your physical, and this "neglect", so to speak, could cause at least one of the following:
-Depression
-Sickness
-Mental illness if something traumatic happens, this could cause something wrong. See More▼

But what can I do? If it's not abuse then I can't call Kids-Help-Phone. And if I say anything then they'll just get REALLY angry with me.

It's not abuse, at least from what you described here. A lot of parents can struggle with accepting a child who is genderqueer or something similar, but that doesn't mean that they love you any less or aren't thinking of your well being. They just don't know how to handle it.
