Torn between expressing myself as a bisexual woman and staying in the closet to my parents… Ugh…
I keep feeling like maybe I should come out to my parents, which is weird because I’ve always felt like that was a thing I’d get to if/when I actually started dating a lady.
I dunno, I know for a fact that they’re pro-L&G, but even people who are supportive of gay and lesbian people can get weird about bisexuality and its existence. Especially with my current and all previous SOs bein of the male persuasion, coming out now might strike them as me just doing shit for attention.
I totally understand what you mean. Bisexuals are frequently marginalized and mocked and generally erased by society. I think a lot of it has to do with a lack of education. People are always uncomfortable and sometimes hostile towards things they don’t understand.
Coming out is hard. I’m still only “out” to about 60% of my friends and family. It has really helped me to follow bi-positive blogs like this one: bisexual-community.tumblr.com. The support and education I’ve found online has really helped me become more bold and brave and confident in myself.
Standing up for yourself can be really hard, but it feels really good to be authentic! I hope that someday soon you will feel safe enough and confident enough to come out all the way! And always remember that you are not alone. There are tons of us out there and we will always be here to support and validate you!
