Mom Confessions Mom Confessions

Came out to my brother and this is what he said...... EDIT I told my dad

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

I told my brother I'm bisexual. Haven't told anyone else. Waited for his reply and.....

"I am proud of you for being true to yourself and I am so happy that you felt comfortable enough with me to tell me! "

I love my brother so much :) He is just freaking awesome


EDIT

I was talking to my brother and he said ""That reminds me. I would never tell anyone, even dad, but if you wanted to tell dad about your orientation I don't think you would regret it. He is very open minded. He considers himself agnostic and it would probably feel good to have the acceptance of at least one parent. :) "

I knew that was true, and took that to heart and told my dad tonight and asked him if it bothered him.... He told me hell no and said he was proud of me for being comfortable enough to tell him. :) Then he sent me links to two churches local to where I live that accept everyone with no discrimination. He said "Kid, I'd love you if you were trisexual. It doesn't matter at all. You are you, regardless of whom you love." His acceptance brought me to tears - but happy tears :)

Just wanted to share :D

I just came out and told him lol. We were talking on Facebook and discussing a religious argumen he'd gotten into with our mom and I said she'd probably disown me if she found out I'm bisexual. I asked him not to tell anyone else and he respected that I'm not ready to "come out of the closet". I don't plan to tell anyone else but my 3 very close friends.

I am in that boat now! I too think I will only tell those closest to me, such as my longterm BF and a few close friends... I am just trying to figure out a way to tell them. :/

Awesome he's so supportive. Wish I had been that lucky.

I "came out" to my brother and he told our entire HS. I "came out" to my parents and my mom didn't talk to me for over a year and my dad, well we won't get into that.


Just like when I told my mother I was Pagan last year... She hit me in the back of the head with a freaking hair brush and walked away.
No support the wieners.

At least my DH is supportive and understanding.

This may sound silly but how did you really know you were Bi? Like what kind of 'cemented' it for you??

Lol there's always one.

Thanks for acting like you know me and my situation :) I didn't know it was up to you to classify my sexual orientation. I know who and what I am. And I could care less if anyone hates me, I love myself and so does my girlfriend ;)

Thanks for your input

Quoting Anonymous:

As someone who actually IS bisexual I'm just going to put it out here that it takes a lifetime of experience, confusion, loves, exloves, and losses to classify yourself as a bisexual. Do you have any idea about BEING a bisexual? Bisexuals are more hated than gays! The straight community hates you for being gay (at all) and the gay community hates you because they think you're just giving them a bad name. It's extremely frustrating! 

In fact in high school and well into my early twenties I never told anyone I was a bisexual, I just told them I was gay.

I'm divorced from an abusive man. While I'm still attracted to men, I'm not comfortable being in a relationship with a man right now. I've always been bi-curious though and was with a female friend, things happened... lol. I've been with her several times and enjoy it more than being with men.

What makes you think you're bisexual? What experience have you had?

I'm so sorry you had to go through that :( That's why I've kept it to myself and especially haven't told my mom. That's great that your DH is supportive though :)

It doesn't sound silly.

I've always been attracted to both men and women, just didn't pursue it growing up because it wasn't "acceptable". Then I married my ex husband and didn't pursue it because I would never cheat on someone I was in a relationship with. We've been divorced for awhile and I decided to see if what I've always felt had anything to it. Turns out it did lol. I'm still attracted to men too, but I enjoy being with women more than men lol
