I CAME OUT TO MY DAD!

I did it!! Holy balls I did it!!!
I'm out to my Dad and I'm still alive!

Actually, it went great. I'm really lucky to have the dad I do. :D
It took me forever to say it but I finally did. And then I felt a whole lot better. I had my sister K be there.
Seriously if it wasn't for you guys and my sister I probably wouldn't have told my dad last night.
I got on here after school and saw all the comments to my other journal where I was being a scared little bitch :) and total strangers who have been through what I'm going through tell me that I can do it made me actually feel like I could. And I did!

My dad basically said that he still loves me and that I'm still me to him. Me being gay doesn't change the way he feels about.
He just wants me to keep playing sports. (it was kinda weird, he emphasized that point a lot) Which I do want to keep playing sports but I don't want to hear people bs about me looking at them in the locker room.
He also asked me how I knew I was gay. I said idk i just DO its not something that I thought of over night, its been years. And he was like HOW do you KNOW. And then I asked him HOW he KNEW he was straight. And he said b/c the thought of 2 guys makes him want to puke. And I was like well there ya go!
He said some stuff about how people are probably going to give me a hard time at school and how school has changed since he's been in it. He also asked what my friends thought about it.
OH and like my Mom he said how I don't need to go announcing it.

Yup well now idk whats next for me? Spreading the rumor at school that I'm a big dyke? :D ha

Hmm...

Congratulations.

Not to be stereotypical, but gay girls tend to be more into sports, no?!

Umm... I fail sports.

Umm... I fail sports. Actually, I was a really good baton twirler until I got tired of the makeup and costumes and being the only dead-white serious girl in a sea of smiling tan blondes. I guess I'm just not good at sports where balls fly at my face.

Congratulations, music is life! That's great!

Umm...

I think there's a big difference from me saying a girl who comes out that's already into sports would likely still stay in sports, since that *is* the stereotype, rather than me saying that not all lesbians are into sports.

The point that intrigued me is why her dad would think counter to the stereotype.

Congratulations Music!!! I'm happy that your dad took it so amazingly well :)

Go hence, to have more talk of these sad things. Some shall be pardoned, some punished. Never was a story of more regret than this of Juliet and her fair Juliet.

Thanks guys! :) @ Jeff. He

Thanks guys! :)

@ Jeff. He wants me to keep playing sports because thats how we bond or whatever. Whats weird about that whole stereotype thing is that I'm actually good at softball except I'm pretty girly. Not that you can't be girly and do sports but whatever ya get the point.
I just don't want to hear people's bullshit about me looking at them in the locker room and that I hit on them or something (which never happens) My Dad is aware of stuff like that about 'gays in the locker' room because he was one of those preppy jocks that made fun of the "freaks" and I want to punch in the face when he was in highschool. Funny how that stuff works out... Maybe I'm my fathers karma? haha ok thats all
