How many of your parents know that you post here?

Kang Lin's picture

Just a question. It may seem weird, but my Mother would take an absolute freak if she knew that I laid myself emotionally open on the 'net, especially about such a subject. If they do know, what's their reaction and if they don't but did, what would it be then? Just curious o.0

Lord...

My dad would kill me. Neither of my parents know I post here. They know I have a blog on Angelfire, but this would send them on the tailspin of a lifetime. Even my mom, who knows I'm bi.
I have to hide the window every time my dad walks in the room, it's almost funny. Like some secret spy operation! *fake mean CIA voice* Hands Up! We Know About Your Illegitimate Sexuality!or something. Haha.

Nope

I don't think they know I go on here.

I have some idea how they would react, although I don't live with them. My mum will probably go through shock then ask all these questions. My dad will probably freak out too because none of them know anything about me being gay. However I think my dad will react very differently like trying to 'cure' me.

The good thing is they don't know english. LoL!
(well, my mom knows a little bit)

The only people I'm afriad of finding out is my sister, who occasionally comes in to borrow my computer without consent. Of course and my friends, since they're starting to pick up the message that I'm "different" (and not reacting too nice about it). I'm also afriad my homestay will find out, since they come into my room without knocking and I'm always like "alt+f4" so quickly. It is obvious I've been hiding something.

I'm pseudo-anonymous

I'm pseudo anonymous, so I don't care too terribly - unless some of the people I know in real life were reading it all. I'd start feeling much more self-conscious about posting then, but by that time I'd probably have written quite a bit, so it probably wouldn't really matter.

My parents don't know that I post here. That would be awkward since I haven't told them anything yet, but I don't consider their uninformedness about my posting here such a big deal since I don't even live with them at the moment. What I'll do when I visit them is another matter.

(On a side note, I just discovered my webbrowser is highlighting words I mistype. Cool.)

eh kinda sorta

I know every so often when my dad comes in to talk to me he reads whatever it is that I've written or am reading or something like that, but I never told him I write stuff about my life online. He has no knowledge what so ever about his computer or computers in general, and wouldn't know something like this even exists anyway

Yeah, my mom knows kinda. Im out to her, and she knows i post on a gay themed journal site, but not the actual adress. My friends dont know the address either, I occasionally refer to it as my other journal that im keeping private, and they all respect that. I need a place where i can be totally honest and not worry about the people im writing about reading it.

I just don't tell them.

Thank god they don't know

If i were to get caught on oasis by my mom i think she would be fine with it and we would have a long talk about things. I've told her alittle before like a crush I had once but now she thinks I am straight so I hide my sexuality. I pretty much live a double life, and i hope they never cross sides. My dad would think I was a weirdo and might put me through counseling.

err .. my mom knows i run A big gay site

But she doesnt know which one, and she doesnt know her google-fu well enough to find out.

Which is comforting. I prefer keeping oasis somewhere i can speak my deepest thoughts, without retribution. Even more so than my blog, which I put a more public appearance up for.

The fact that I don't hesitate to speak publicly about drugs, sex and other utterly hedonistic acts here would probably freak her out. She might know that I am openly gay , but she doesnt know i spent the last 5 years dropping ecstacy and sticking questionable powders up my nose in night clubs.

no...

Nobody knows I post here or even about this site. If I were to tell my mom she wouldn't care. (she is bi herself and is completely accepting.) What I post here is my own business. I don't tell people everything about myself and I would like to keep it that way. I am not a very open person about my emotions and some of the things I write are personal.

No...but...

No, my parents dont know I post here, but i doubt they would waste their time throwing a fit if they found out. I have several online diaries and we have had many tiffs about how trusting I am on the net. I'm sure they would just give up.

Love is when you dont know why you like them but when they leave you're crying your heart out. I'm in love.

OverlappingElvis's picture

Nope.

My parents don't even know that I'm bi, let alone that I post on "this kind of site" :). Actually, it kills me sometimes that they don't/can't know - it isn't like they'd freak, or throw me out of the house... its just that they'd try to "understand" me, and figure out where they "went wrong". Like its something they did. OK, I think that's enough raging against the proverbial machine... peace out.

I'd get a long rant about how I'm completely without morals and wondering where they went wrong. I just delete the history and cookie files on my computer before I go to bed so they can't track it.

no way!

Well my parents would freak if they saw I went on here, at least my mum would (she cried when I came out), and none of my mates know I post on here (I do have a tendancy to post about them....).
Works for me at least. :D

All my family knows about Oasis.

Happyperson01's picture

Yes

Both of my parents know I go on Oasis Magazine. They do not mind, and they do not go on here themselves to see what I post. I talk to them about many of the posts I put on here, and if it is a question that they might be able to relate to them I ask them. Their reaction when I told them I went on this site was indifferent.

Personally, I don't care if my mom was to click onto oasismag.com on the address bar. I'd actually much rather have her reading what I write than asking me about it. If she has clicked onto this site already, she's doing a really good job hiding it.
I've told two of my three friends that I've just recently come out to that I come here to talk about whatever's on my mind, and they probably were still in too much shock to hear about what website I use as a journal.
I'd much rather have her read my absolute honest thoughts then have her listening to my um's and ah's when and if she ever brought up my sexuality.

Wow

This certainly brings back memories. And my mother would still take a freak at it. But now I'm happy and have a boyfriend. And she doesn't know about that either. Yay for life ^_^

i hope not, my mother would die of a heart attack, and my step dad would be to confused to do anything.
