AS A CHILD I WAS VERY CONFUSSED I DIDNT UNDERSTAND WHY I LOOKED AT MEN AND WOMEN IN THE SAME SEXUAL WAY I WAS EVEN MORE CONFUSED CAUSE I NEVER SAW ANY OF THAT IN MY FAMILY MY MOTHER WAS VERY JUDEMENTAL PERSON SHE UNDERSTOOD EVERYONE ELSE BUT NEVER HER CHILDREN. YOU COULD ONLY IMAGINE HOW HARD IT WAS FOR ME TO COME OUT SO ONE DAY I JUST CAME OUT AND TOLD HER I WAS BISEXUAL AND THAT I HAVE ALWAYS BEEN BUT NEVER UNDERSTOOD WHAT I WAS FEELING UNTILL NOW SHE GAVE ME A LOOK OF DISAPOINTMENT AND TOLD ME THAT SHE DIDNT AGREE WITH WHAT MY LIFE STYILE WOULD BE BUT THAT SHE LOVED REGARDLESS. I FELT RELEAVED BUT GUILTY CAUSE I FELT I HAD LET MY MOTHER DOWN BUT I CANT CHANGE WHO I AM AND I WONT EVEN IF I COULD.

I think it was the way my mother was raised she strongly belives a man and a women belong together as God has created she is discusted of female on female relationship. She belives a female cant give another female satisfaction and she doesnt like talking about it ether. As for her having grandchildren I gave her four and ny sister gave her two lol so I think it has to do more with her beleafe system especialiy now that she went back to church after decades.

Thank you #1

Many of us have "been there and done that" . We all look especially to our family to accept us. Your Mom has given you the one means of support that she can, her love. We all have to remember that they are individuals that have to feel comfortable in this world of uncertainty and sometimes confusion. If you can, get her to explain what or why it is that she doesn't agree with.<br />
<br />
Find out if it may be her upbringing? Or she fears for your safety? Or (and I know at least one Mom that feels this way) could it be that she's afraid that you won't give her grandkids? I know that may sound silly but you would be surprised at what people think about.<br />

Just remember to keep the lines of communication open. Never unconsciously make her feel that her feelings are unjust. And remember too, many parents think about what you will be when they grow up and any deviation from the master plan tends to unsettle them.
