Question from Anonymous
in your experience, what are some of the most common negative verbal responses from parents whose kids have just come out to them as bisexual? i'm planning on coming out to my mom soon, and i want to be as prepared as i can possibly be. (i say verbal bc i'm going to be out of the house and financially independent relatively soon, so she can't exactly kick me out of the house or anything.)
Question from Anonymous
I recently turned 18, and I came out to my immediate family at 16 about being bisexual. They're still struggling to accept that, and now I feel my orientation has changed more toward Asexual. I'm in counseling, not because of how my parents feel about my orientation but for depression and anxiety. I'm not sure how to tell them about this without them just waving it off as a "side affect" of my medication... any advice on how to present my sexuality in a way they'll understand?
Question from whodoesthatburn
Hi, I was wondering if you could give me some advice. I'm 16 years old and last year I came out to my mother and close friends as bisexual. Everyone accepted me and treats me the same except my mom. When we don't talk about lgbtq things its fine between us. But, as soon as I talk to her about it she acts as if she can't stand to be in the same room as me. A few weeks after I came out I found a organization that has lgbtq meetings with other youth in the area. But she won't let me go. Please help
I asked the group Bisexual Community about the banned tagging terms as I’ve not kept up with that nonsense. Can’t people trying to post porn just use a different term, like #cloudydays or #theskyisblue. Oh well, here is the replay that I received.
From the librarians who run the Tumblr “Bisexual Books”—“ACTUALLY, most of the tags they blocked were informational, not porn; i.e. “homosexual”, “bisexuality”, and “pansexual”. Those tags have ALMOST NO PORNOGRAPHY (unlike tags such as “gay”, “lesbian”, and “bisexual”) and ARE, IN FACT important for people to find and use. While some blocking is called for, many of those selected are nearly entirely free of pornography, and blocking some people, who can only access Tumblr from a mobile device, for whatever reason, off from important sources of news and community. So, before you AGAIN go preaching and preening, read the tags for yourself, and you will find that those that are not tagged generically, but have still been blocked, can and will be harmful.”
