Both my parents never had the opportunity to study english, so they only speak portuguese, and since I’m very interested in languages they’re so proud to announce that to everyone. And now my uncle who speaks danish says both my danish and norwegian are really good, so my father now tells everyone smth like “mY DAUGHTER SPEAKS 5 LANGUAGES FLUENTLY SHE’S A MASTER” and though I don’t speak 5 languages at all I think that’s so beautiful because it’s like they’re helping me accomplish what they couldn’t and I’m so happy for that
I have a happy story regarding my parents. I came out to both of them in an email (a very long email with a lot of clickable links) about a year ago and since then my dad will send me articles and links about asexuality that he comes across online and thinks would interest me, and he'll be like "did you know about demisexuality or did you know about this other thing?" It's really cool that he's been so proactive and accepting of it.
