Guess who came out to their mom today? No, not Maya Angelou. Me! Yay! I wanted to spend the night at a gal pal's house tonight and my mom said no since she didn't want me spending the night with girls. An hour or so later I asked her again and questioned, "Would you let me spend the night if I told you I were gay?" she said no again, not understanding the implied message, lol, so I also had to ask, "If it were the truth?" Then I had to explain to her for about five minutes why I think I'm gay, but to no avail; she doesn't believe me. She said several times, "I just don't think you are," and that was hella annoying. I hate it when people tell you how YOU are feeling when they're obviously not you! So my mom's pretty much in denial. She thinks maybe I should get "professional help." Psssht, I like guys and not girls, I don't need to spend money for someone else to tell me that. I'll just give her time; I think she'll come around eventually. She was raised in a time when things were a lot different and she just has to realize that things indeed have changed. There is a funny part to all of this, though! She told me, "I think you've been watching too much...(trying to think of "Queer Eye," I believe) "Trading Spaces." lol! Oh yeah, because "Trading Spaces" is ALL about gay people! haha I'm glad and proud of myself that I can joke about this because when I came out to my dad I was a mess! Yuck. Well, that's the end of my tale, arrivederci!
P.S. I still can't spend the night...rawr!
