I would like to ask how old you were when you first realized that you were attracted to the same sex? Five, ten, fifteen, twenty?
Who was the first person you told? Were they accepting? How would you have liked for the first person you told to react? What would have been the best thing for them to say to you?
I ask because my dd's friend is all but "coming out" to her. I want to encourage my dd to do and say the right thing. Her friend is thirteen. We do not live in a very accepting area of the country, though my husband and I to teach tolerance and love for everyone. I am concerned about dd's friend. She seems very upset. She has been consulting the Internet regarding her feelings, and is getting very conflicting answers. I just want to help my dd help her friend.
Yes, my dd says that she would still be this girl's friend if it does come out that she is gay, but dd will not be the one to "out" her. She understands that it is not her place.
