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?

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 :)
