    Okay, so what has muttskins been up to this time? icon_razz.gif

    Well, last Friday/Saturday (it was around midnight) I managed to come out to my sisters (14 and 15), who were at first a little shocked, but then took it well! icon_smile.gif

    Then on Saturday we had heated arguments about 'having' to come out to my parents. I kept telling them that I do not want to for the time being, because I don't want to end up without any financial and domestic support if it all goes terribly wrong. It is none of their business anyway when I tell them. icon_neutral.gif

    Sunday passed with nags that they were going to tell them when they get back home (parents went to London, back Monday morning), and I kept threathening them not to say a word. icon_evil.gif

    When I get back home from work on Monday, the sisters tell me that they told my Mum, who immediately phoned Dad! I was about to kill them on the spot! They can't keep a f***ing secret! They said that they accepted me, but I had no idea whether it was true or not. icon_eek.gif

    Later in the evening, just before going to bed, Dad called me over and told me he knew, and that he and Mum are supporting me 100% and are always there if I need anything! I'm so happy, but yet I'm never ever gonna talk to my sisters again. Had it gone the wrong way around, like many of you unfortunate ones, I could have ended up on the streets, with no place to go for all I know. icon_biggrin.gif

    Well, at least coming out to friends should now be easier. icon_razz.gif

    well your very luckly.

    At first when I told my family I was dis-owned and I didnt see them for almost 10 years. It wasnt until the death in the larger family, that we started to talk. Now it has been almost 20 years since I first came out to my family and they are accepting of me and my spouse.

    Good to hear that Mutts. And your sisters need to cop on. It was your decision, and only yours as to when they were told. They were way out of line. But I'm sure they love you, and care about you, so talk to them, OK icon_question.gif

    Sfinboston, Good to hear your family have accepted you after all that time icon_smile.gif

    Congrats, Muttskins! A little coming out drama never hurt anyone. The important take-away here is that your parents still love and support you. And your sisters were right. I'm sure this will be a major load off your shoulders and will give you the ability to come out to more people.

    Congratulations on it going so well muttskins! Glad your story had a happy ending, but really...never trust teenage girls to keep a secret...the only people worse at keeping secrets are gay men (telegram, telephone, tell a queen!)...(omg, that's older than I am)...icon_rolleyes.gif

    Yeah Muttskins! Glad to hear there was a happy ending.

    What I probably would do is have your parents talk to your sisters and let them know that what they did was wrong and why.
