I've battled my sexuality for years. In the eighth grade I came out to my parents. I was going through a lot of stressful changes with school and everyone there accepting my sexuality. My mother and step dad found out the hard way, they walked in on me and my ex. My mother screamed and yelled, blaming my gf for everything. This has resulted in years of fights with my mother. My step mom and dad had the worst o it though. The depression set in from my mother not accepting who I was, and my friends went to my shool counselor worried about me. She had always suspected I was a lesbian, for some reason. I told her I was bisexual and she asked me permission to tell my dad and step mom, who I lived with. My step mom cried with me and my dad ignored me. They both have shared that they don't believe in bisexuality and they think ts just a phase. This is not a phase, it's who I am. I'm not sure how to make that clear.

It's really hard, especially when you think you're going to disappoint your family. My family may have thought it was only a phase, but one day they will learn and hopefully accept it. A friend of mine may not have been as lucky. She is going away to college this year, which is a year early for her and she wanted to come out to her parents before she left. They are really religious and they are now not letting her go away to college because she is gay. It really disappoints me how ignorant some people can be. Unfortunately that's life. Life also has a way of working itself out. And "toot", I'll smile for you whenever :)

I tried to convince myself I that I also went through a phase. Silly now that I think about it, although if it wasn't for that, I wouldn't have been so content about who I am now :) Having Catholic Asian parents doesn't make it any easier either.They don't know about me, but I think they just don't want to ask.Even if I have brought it up before.Obviously took it as a joke. You have a gorgeous smile I would love to see more of :)

Its tough, i know....been there done that. My family is very religious, for them i am like possessed by demons, but not all of them condemned me. Some of them feel sorry for me, some are just trying so hard to understand its logic, and some just accept me just because they love me. I just stay away from the people who don't like the way I AM and who I AM. Life is short, might as well just enjoy it. Take it easy, and be strong Good luck...
