As a parent, I can tell you that you might not know what your mother is thinking! It might be that she has also had feeling for women, but was afraid to express them. Also, she might have had a woman before herself...but isn't about to tell you.
Silence doesn't mean she's judging you, necessarily anyway.
About the father thing - as a father, it is probably much easier to take it if your daughter tells you that she is bi, versus your son...yes, a double-standard.
I think alot of guys secretly wish that more women were bi.
Also, different life circumstances impact guys differently, too. I grew up with a step-mother, who always had difficulty getting along with my birth mother - and, visa-versa. Guess what, I'm so happy to see whenever women get along, even if they're making out with each other, that it doesn't bother me a bit. I'm glad to see the women getting along. This might seem silly. But, I am actually comforted being around two women who get along really well. This probably explains why I happen to enjoy having sex with more than one woman at a time, especially whenever the women are making out and getting along...okay, a bonus if they're both giving me good attention.
Also, if a gal says that she's bi, perhaps she could show this to her parents, in a certain manner. I think that some who like members of the same sex have a tendency to hide their affection in front of their parents or others. So, if I were told by my daughter that she was bi, I would expect to see similar behavior of her involving both male and female friends. If I didn't see this, then I would be left wondering if something was being hidden from me. Good luck. Yes, I have a shrink about my mommy issues!
I know it is unbearable right now. But you're going to have to wait. At least she hasnt threatened to kick you out of the house. That's a positive sign. Just give it time, and see where she ends up. She may decide to forget about what you've told her (yes, parents will sometimes do that). If she does, you need to let it go for now. If she's in denial, then it would be ill advised to try and break her from it right now. It means she's not ready to process it. She hasnt actually forgotten. She may decide you're going through a phase. Again, let it go for now. She's not ready to deal with it. She may have a hard time coming to acceptance. She may never come to full acceptance. It's one of those things about coming out that you have to deal with. Sometimes parents never fully embrace it. Sometimes they do. With time. You've had a while to process your feelings and what they meant. You didnt just wake up one day, figure out you liked other girls, and you were just fine. It took you some time. Give her that time.
Do you still live with her? If you do the best thing to do is just give her time, I think it is a little bit harsh for her to do that if you do live with her, but perents have add ways of doing things. Just give her time to think to see things, also it depends on how long she has not talked to you. It's not your foult, you were just being honest and telling her the truth, so it has nothing to do with you, it just has to do with your mom's feelingas and such, meaby you can get another family memeber to talk to her for you while she keeps this attitude, someone that can help you trough this and all.
well you can try contacting her but if she dosent want to talk to you then she wont its kinda sad if a mother has a closed veiw on there child which by lord law they should have uncondishional love for but give her time she might just be in a little shock from it if she dosent come around soon maybe explain to her that nothings diffrent youve been the same person the whole time she just didnt see it that if she loved you then she should still now cause you are no diffrent and only you may pick your true path in life
well i am a lesbian and have been for over a year and have not told my mom... she thinks i am bi but when she found out i was bi she was kinda weirded out by me i would let her see that just because you like girls too does not mean you are any different then you were before just diferent likings and i would also bring it up to your dad if he is around cuz guys understand what there is to like about a girl ;)
Be the best I can be at what I do in life. In time she will see that your create at what you do in life is more important than your sexual preference.
Many great people in history were homosexual, maybe even bisexual. And maybe in time you will choose which gender to be with. But make it honest, not selfish.
its not that shes a bad mom, she does love me, its just. i don't know, she hasn't really said anything to me since she got home about 4 hours ago, unless she was telling me to delete something of of facebook
Perhaps you could write down your reasons for you decisions and then present them to your Mom as a starting point for discussion?
well go and try asken her bout her day she may just be tired offer to help her cook dinner little things make a hudge diffrence
How is being born with a particular sexuality a decision she made? Why would anyone willingly make that decision?
It wont work at all :( and then some o the keys are brockn on this computr.
Give her some time. I'm sure she will talk to you soon(: Goodluck.
No mom can stand away from their kids. So just wait!
Spell check, pleeeeeeese Haloyeah...
