    My parents aren't really people that associate themselves with gay, les, bi, etc people. They say they don't have a problem with it, but they'll talk about them from time to time. Two of my sisters has a gay friend and my parents are cool with him being gay, but they freak out over the thought that one of us (my siblings and I) could be. All of my siblings except for me has had numerous boyfriends and girlfriends, I've only had 3, and they only know about 2. I live with my dad and since I never talk about guys I like, I often get awkward talks with him asking me if I'm not attracted to guys -_- To me, I don't care if you're a boy or a girl, if I like you, I like you. My mom's boyfriend is a Christian and he has a strong dislike for gays. Like during the summer the Gay Pride Parade comes through where my mom lives, and I go every year, he (my mom's bf) was super mad that I chose to go to the parade only because they're gay. And I strongly believe he's homophobic, which sucks because I really like him. I consider my self a pansexual and I'm afraid of telling my family because of how they'll react. Sad

    To be fair, having a happy daughter might be more important to them than chores. Hopefully it ends up working out in the long run. Arms
