    "Mom, I know that you follow the blog, and that you are keeing up without chiming in as often as you used to. So you know that I did a scene today with one of the biggest names in the biz, and ALOT of people will see it, because HE is in it. I know that I've chosen a path that many parents would be ashamed of, but I want you to know that I am doing the best I can with the situations that have defined my adult life. No one wanted to pay me to be smart, but people will pay me to be pretty. If we're somewhere and someone calls me Devon, remember to just go with it."

    .....


    "I will NEVER be ashamed of you. I read everything you post, I am more than confident that you have created a safe space for yourself, and that you take as good a care of yourself as you can. I worry about your emotional and physical health, but I love you exactly as you are."


    .....


    do your parents love you until you don't understand how you deserve it? share the beauty. perhaps it will help in some way to encourage some of the guys here who don't have the luxury of that connection.

    xoxo

    Awe! That's really, really sweet.

    My mom is really cool too! This is a conversation about ten years ago I had with her.

    Me, "Mom I really just need to get laid."
    Mom, "Why don't you go to a sex addicts anonymous meeting? They're full of vulnerable people. I used to do that when I was your age."
    Me, "Mom, seriously?"
    Mom, "I trust you'll protect yourself. You gotta do what you gotta do."

    My mom was a bartender in a gay bar for like six years when I was younger. She's been around.

    My Mom - "If anyone has a problem with you for who you are, fuck them."

    oh it can even be grandmothers... one thanksgiving i brought my boyfriend from new zealand to dinner and all the other grandkids brought dates too. mind you, we come from a jewish family. well, my grandmother has too much wine and during the middle of the meal she turns to my female cousin and says, "lisa, i can understand being gay. you don't get to choose that... but you do get to choose if you date a catholic" in reference to her bringing an irish boy to the dinner. i couldn't stop choking on my food.

    My mom still thinks taking pictures of shirtless guys is porn, and routinely reminds me that I'm going to hell because I'm gay. But she prays for me, so it's all good. icon_rolleyes.gif

    At least she doesn't hate me, though. I can still talk to her about my life without being chastised. When she brings up religion, I just remind her that I've grown out of that and no longer believe, and she changes the subject.

    oh my god!! LOL LOL LOL

    i had a great grandmother who was too senile to tell i was gay. she wouldn't have understood the concept. so i just let her ask me about my "girlfriend." she asked me where "she" went to church, and i replied that "she" was methodist. to this my great grandmother immediately said, "but i thought you said she was a nice girl?!"

    HAHAHAHAHA

    I have the most amazing Mormon grandmother who loves me with all her heart, and even said to me not long ago, when will they accept you are born that way, and it's not a choice. This from my 94 yo Grandmother.

    My mom is an extraordinary woman. I'd be lost without her. I have everything of myself because of the great emotional support she has always been and she was the one who taught me to be the strong person I am today.

    Unfortunately, she does not know I am gay and being from an Iranian culture, my family finding out would be painful and too much heartache. All that sad stuff aside, sometimes I ask myself how am I worthy of having such an amazing mom - well family in general, but this is a mom topic, so yeah...
