I might be a hypocrite

    Because I've considered myself to be out for almost 3 years but had never brought it up to my parents. I never went out of my way to hide it and in many ways made it blatantly obvious but I still never spoke the words. My Facebook says I'm gay and I accepted their friend requests, I told the rest of my family, my friends, their parents, I just kinda procrastinated bringing it up in convo. Anyways in light of recent events I told my parents last night. They had obviously already heard and they just thought it would be something I would want to bring up and they said they didn't care. We didn't talk about it much but it's official, I'm 100% out.

    It's good that you told them. I assume they probably knew, but now there are no "secrets", and they wont be surprized if someone mentions it some other way.

    Now you can focus on other things.

    Hey, it may not be a life-changing day.
    It may not be a relationship-changing day...

    But it IS pretty important. It shows that you're making an effort not to procrastinate based on expectations. You knew they knew. They knew you knew that THEY knew. But, like most kids, we push things under the rugs because "what if..."

    Those things carry over to other aspects of life..

    Just keep it rolling, do the somewhat uncomfortable or uncertain things without giving too much negative thought and you'll accomplish so much more.

    DrobUA I wouldn't say your a hypocrite. My mother knows I'm gay but It's not something that we discuss, if ever. She has accepted it and now we're just mother and son. Ignore the trolls who have nothing better than to post stupid gifs.

    dude, grow some balls. Your parents need something to pop when you come out to them.

    I think it's good that you told them. At the very least, it shows some respect for their being your parents, two people who (I hope) love you very much and want the best for you. I'm sure when/if you decide to have a child, you'd like the same courtesy.

    I know everyone has complicated relationships with their parents (myself included) but I'd be majorly hurt if my kid shared major info like this with everyone but me -- if for no other reason than to be able to be supportive in tough times.
