Should I come out to my parents?

0

I’m a 14 year old bisexual girl. I’m usually pretty open about my sexuality, except for my family. My whole family has issues with people who like the same gender and people who try to change their sexuality… They’re not very understanding and honestly they would probably disown me. I’m not afraid of being kicked out of the house (that’s what I wish would happen) I’m scared they’ll never let me out of my room or they’ll send me to a therapist to change me. My dad would hate me forever and my mother would be so ashamed. I really want to be honest with my family, but I’m thinking it would be best if I didn’t tell them. I don’t act different from my straight friends so they probably won’t notice. Is that okay? I mean once I go to college I probably won’t see them much after that.

Taking away the fact that you're 14, you and I can both see that there's a problem. Your parents don't accept you and seem to have made their minds up about being gay (according to what you've explained).Now taking back into consideration that you're 14, (depending on what the law on the legal age of sex is) you have the option to experiment. Find someone who is gay also. Perhaps you will like it and vice-versa. Before telling anyone anything, you should be 99.99% sure of something.If you believe that your parents will think and behave negatively about the situation, then feel free to not say anything to them. Instead, write what you want to say on an application like M-Office or notepad, read it through and then DELETE it. It helps many people cope with things that they want to tell people but shouldn't/can't.Once you're old enough (let's say 17) and sure that you're bisexual (& perhaps able to survive alone), then you can go ahead and tell your parents what you want.

my personal belief is that you need to be happy with yourself and talking to your parents will help you with that. Love is love and there isn't a book out there that say you are too young to fall in love. You know who you are attractive too and it is hard for someone who knows what they want but people are not accepting. if you need to talk im here i say love who you want to love and you cant be sad when someone doesn't accept you because in the long run it is their lost if they didnt want to be part of an amazing persons life
