Sexuality is not shameful... I'll just never tell my parents

I am a bisexual girl and I believe sexuality is such a small part of what makes a person a person. Being bi is amazing and is nothing to be sad or ashsmed of, but until I find a girl I am deeply in love with, I'll never confess my sexual orientation to my family. My parents (especially my mum) say they are open minded and accepting, and they are to a certain extent. But that doesn't stop my mum from using the f-a-g word even though she knows that I don't like it, and it doesn't stop my dad from making his offensive jokes. They think my twin sister is going though a phase since she told them she was gay and didn't identify as male or female and they are not as open minded as they make it out to be.

  • I'm in the same situation as you. No twin sister but basically the same as you. Bisexual and happy, but not out to my parents

  • Thanks anonymous for pouring out your heart here. Quite empathize with you in your plight. What I would add here is for you young lady to "close your legs". I have counselled ladies over the years in the course of my work and I have come to discover that majority of the ladies that do not "move on" whenever a relationship does not work out are those who had given in to sexual pressures, committed abortions or gotten infections from their partners. They keep sulking even a decade after the break up whereas their male counterparts had moved on, married and had kids. This later scenario usually adds to the lady's predicament. On the other hand, those who "closed their legs" have more secure and trustworthy marriages apart from "moving on" faster. Also lady, spice your spiritual life with God's word. Learn to read your scriptures (New Testament -you can google it and read on your mobile phones or tablets) and find out what LOVE means.

    1 Corinthians 13:4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. 8 Love never fails. .
