I have it a lot easier than some people: my parents are pretty neutral when it comes to my sexuality. They were surprised when I came out to them, and there was the classic “you’re not asexual, you’re just not ready for sex/ haven’t met the right person/ too young to know yet (I was 14)”, but after I explained to them, they accepted it and carried on. Since then, though, they ask me about certain male classmates that are also the sons of family friends. They ask me what I think of them, if we’ve talked recently, that sort of thing. It just stings a little that they’re still only paying attention to my relationships with male peers. Is my discomfort justified? Should I bother to do anything about it?
