Okay so everyone basically now knows I am gay (both sisters, brothers-in-law, friends, co-workers, etc.) I used to not admit it and hide from the questions, basically I wanted to wait until I was out of college. Anyway a couple of months ago my mom asked me (at restaurant when she was visiting me) if I was an item with my roommate yet (who has been my best friend for years and she knows he's gay.) Of course my mouth dropped in shock, I told her of course not, he has a boyfriend. So from there it was kind of dropped. Then when I was home, we went to dinner just my mother and I, on the way home after she brought the subject back up and asked if I was gay or not, "its okay and its a black and white issue, you either are or not I just want to know." which I replied that I was not having this conversation in the car nor was that an appropriate question. Well this past weekend I had people up at my family's lake house, so of course last night I talked to my mom about the entire weekend and how it went. Of course some of my friends that went along were gay which then brought up the entire gay topic. She goes "so are you moving on from girls then to just guys or what's going on? I just want to know so I don't keep putting my foot in my mouth about this topic." To which I laughed and couldn't answer without asking her what that had to do with anything... I can't figure out why but I can't just tell her that I am gay. She has made it relatively easy I guess but I find it awkward. Anyone else had their parent blatantly ask and you can't answer the question ?
