what are the benefits if I tell my mom that I am a lesbian. Well she hopefully will let me hang posters in my room that I can identify with. I can flirt with my female friends on the phone and not have her question why. If I come home with a hickey I don't have to lie about who I got it from and the best part, If I have a girlfriend then I can introduce her to my mom as my partner, not just a friend. The bad part is. I would creep my mom out. she would judge me for my sexual decisions. I wouldn't be allowed to have just friends sleep in my room. any girl I would bring to the house my mom would think I was dating. and the list goes on. so what do I do.? tell her and deal with the questions.. or hide myself and the things I enjoy.
