Being Pushed Away

I'm moving away for University next year. My mom doesn't want me to go. Yet they're pushing me away because they make me feel like it's not okay for me to be gay. I haven't told them, and am growing resentful.

  • You never know. You parents could be way more supporting than you thought they were. They also might not. You have to be smart about this one.

  • I'm a female. When I came out to my mom and told her I liked both boys and girls, she told me to "pick one" because bisexuals had a tendancy to engage in "risky s**." Then she proceeded to tell me how I had just dashed all of the carefully-calculated dreams she had for me, as if I have ever or will ever care about her plans for me. It was almost like she didn't understand I was a different person and not an extention or a reflection of herself. In the end, though, I needed to come out to my family. I was tired of sentances like, "WHEN you have a husband..." or "WHEN you have kids..." Those kinds of sayings seem very basic and natural to someone who is imposing their own ideas onto someone else and making assumptions based on nothing.
