When I came out to my parents, I was so nervous but it was super easy.I just told my mom that I liked girls, and she was like, "I know." I was 22.When we finally broke up, she said, "I knew I never should have dated a bi girl!" and I just thought, I've also been in a couple of situations where my girlfriend also had a boyfriend, and I just turned into some weird side dish.It's complicated because I may end up with a man or a woman at different parts in my life, and I'm not sure how that will translate through my parents' understanding of bisexuality.Other than that, I have received pretty positive responses to my sexuality.
Woman A: I had my first sexual experience when I was 8 with a girl, but I never really thought of it as "bad" or "gay" or even unusual.
Woman B: After my girlfriend and I hooked up for the first time, I told one of my good friends from high school, who identified as pansexual.
I kept it a secret from the rest of my friends for a while because I didn't really know where things were going to go.
When I was 14, I wrote my parents a letter describing my feelings and thoughts that I had about women.
They reacted super poorly — they were afraid and angry of the unknown.
I can distinctly remember fantasizing about what it would feel like to kiss her.
