I’m starting to think that my resentment of having to tell people my sexuality is actually covering me just being scared to face whatever reaction comes. My family is all “cool” with the gays, but being cool with some vague info about people you aren’t super close to is different than your daughter or sister.
Although mostly daughter, I don’t think my siblings will be too bad. Or at least they will keep it to themselves. It’s mostly my parents I’m scared about. My mum has a history of saying loudly that she’s very accepting of things but talking about it in the most obviously uncomfortable with it way. And my dad will probably just be super quiet and visibly uncomfortable with me.
So, I mean, while I do resent the assumption of being straight; the real reason I haven’t talked about it yet is because I am scared.
