me11 saidWhat is all comes down to is time. You have known that you were gay for awhile. You finally reached the point where you were comfortable enough to come out. Perhaps for your parents it's more of a surprise and they need time to process all of this.
I really do not think it is a surprise for ANY parent unless they have been absent from the child's life or so preoccupied with their own whatever (like career) to be bothered to notice. Others prefer to live in denial rather than educating themselves and helping their child through a very tough process. Sad.
