My mom has been married to my step father for about two years but has known him for more than ten years.  He was a good friend of my real dad and that's how they met, so if it weren't for my dad they wouldn't even be together.  Just this fact alone frustrates me about their relationship, that my mom would go and get together with my dad's friend.  And to clarify, they're aren't friends anymore.  My step dad was nice to me as a kid, but I'm now 20 and he's nothing but rude, innapropriate, and disrespectful towards me.  He started being that way after him and my mom got married, like he was pretending to be someone he wasn't just to be with her.  My mom could do so much better and she's settling for such a terrible person.  When he talks to my mom, he acts like no one else can be involved in the conversation and shuts me down and changes the subject anytime I try to talk to the both of them.  He's a very posessive person, and gets visibly upset when I try to be involved in something with the both of them.  This makes me feel incredibly unwelcome in my own house.  When I want to do something with just my mom, he feels like he has to be involved and sometimes I get so frustrated I tell him to mind his own business.  He thinks everything is about him and never considers that the things he does have a negative effect on me.  He has also cyberbullied me and said very disrespectful things that I can't even repeat about my father and I online.  When I talked to my mom about it, she didn't see anything wrong with it and defended him.  I had to argue with her just to get her to see my side.  My mom gets mad at me if I talk to my step-father about concerns I have and theatens to take away my college money if I do so.  So the only thing I can do is talk to her about it, where she does nothing but defend him and act like he can do no wrong.  I just got home from my winter break and on my first day back home my step dad yelled at me for than an hour for no reason...I did nothing to make him act that way towards me.  He was saying I've made him mad ever since I was a kid and that I "better change the way I act".  He has no right to say those things to me and I told him that.  I repeatedly asked him to stop yelling because he was attacking me and saying rude things and making me upset, but he wouldn't stop.  I'm at the point where I can't handle this anymore because all my mom does is defend him and she's so blind to who he really is.  The only reason I haven't moved out is I don't have enough money to be living on my own yet, but I need to get out.  I'm so sick of being treated this way and I never want to see or talk to my step father again.  I want to think there's something I can do here, but I've pretty much lost hope...is there anything at all that I can do?
