Telling My Parents Isnt Easy...

Im 15 and I started experimenting with girls when I was 13. Up until about 6 months ago I was pretty into guys, but I took a look at all the teen boys and all they are focused on is literally sex. So I gave up there, idk if its forever but I don't want to be with them. So, I was dating this girl for about a year and all our friends knew but our parents didn't. One day I come home from school to find out I'm not allowed to have any type of communication with her because I'm too young to "make that kind of decision." I couldn't believe that the one person I wanted to be with was being taken from me. So now, a year later, knowing my parents do not approve of me being with another girl, I'm a lesbian. I decided ill wait another year to tell them, but I'm still scared they will try to keep me from my current girlfriend, who is also somewhat of a closet lesbian. Every single one of my friends know I'm a lesbian, even my best friends parents know. How can I break the news to my folks without becoming an outsider?

Well, mabe you could get your friends to help tell your parents. Or you could just use your friends as an example, to show that they accept ou for who you are, and that they should accept it too. You could have your buds there with you telling about how you're great even if you're a lesbian. Hope this helps!

NO absoulutley not if you can't 100% sure your safe telling them then don't because some parents have been known too get violent if you have any questions on the subject msg me or post them i will gladly answer any question on this subject

It's not gonna be easy... Somehow I know how you feel. I could never tell my parents! They're just to traditional and old-fashioned to actually understand how I feel. I think my mum knows that I might be bi but she doesn't want to believe it. On the other hand my dad is in his own world (somewhere back in the 70's) he's a complete homophobe and still believes that only prisoners get tattoos xP <br />
but yeah if you think that they could handle it you should tell 'em :)
