So, I have a mom, dad, two older sisters and a twin. I am asexual, demiromantic.(If you don’t know what that means, it’s when you are only romantically attracted to anyone after you develop a strong bond with them) My twin knows this and it doesn’t even vase them. My other family members though? My mother is catholic and is really grossed out by homosexuality, she doesn’t even want to see a same-sex couple. My dad is totally fine with other people being gay. Not sure about his kids though. My older sisters are completely fine with homosexuality and everything else. Both are active lgbt+ supporters. I think if I did come out, it’d be to them first. But both sisters don’t respect me. Both think that I’m too young to think right and that I’m making things up to be special. And even though I’m 16, they treat me like I’m 6. Should I come out to them now? Should I wait until I’m older so they can’t be like ‘you’re too young to know’? Or should I come out to them when/if I get a girlfriend, because there is a girl I know who I’m tempted to be in a relationship with. Even though we’re best friends right now.
And then there’s my other family members. My grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins. My dad’s sister’s family are really religious and homophobic. They refuse to admit people are gay so they can still be around them. I think most of my cousins would be okay with it. My mom’s sister’s family though…. I don’t know. My dad’s parents? Oh god. I want to say that they’d be okay with it but… I just… I hurts me to think that they’d be homophobic and not accept me. And my other grandparents just wouldn’t understand… Why does this have to be so hard? Should I even come out to them? What if I fall for some girl? Should I just be like ‘hey, wedding’s coming up, I like girls btw!’
