It’s kind of funny really because I have always felt that my sexuality was unimportant and that it is society itself that makes it an issue. Nobody expects a straight person to state their sexual preferences do they! You never hear a kid turn round to his parents “Mum, Dad I need to tell you something…………I’m straight!”
And yet in some ways it IS important as your sexuality, though it doesn’t define you, is a part of who you are as a person. I do not see myself as a gay women, but as a woman who happens to be gay.
So why haven’t I said anything to my family?! I have only told my sister and that was via a text message because it seemed so damned hard to say it face to face!
Now one thing I can say about my familiy is they’re not a bunch of homophobes! They have always said it doesn’t bother them if they’re kid’s are gay or not, as long as they’re happy!
So what is it with me? I’ not ashamed of who I am…Maybe it’s because right now I’m not interested in a relationship and so maybe I feel it REALLY is unimportant!
Or maybe it’s because I just don’t know HOW to tell them. After all I am well over 30 and never said bo diddly about my sexuality. And when my father has said to people “well she isn’t gay” when people have wonder why I’m not married and I haven’t said to him “welllll that’s not actually true!” lol
Hmmmm…So why haven’t I said anything?! SHOULD I say something? Ye gods!!! lol
