Okay. I am a lesbian. I realized it when I was 13 and never had any crushes on boys. I'm nearly 16 now, and my friends know and they are okay with it. I want to be able to tell my parents. I'm pretty sure my mom would be okay with it. I have mentioned my gay friends before, and she is perfectly nice and treats them like any of my other friends. I'm not so sure about my dad though. He seems to think that gay people are messed up. He doesn't mind if people are gay, and he certainly isn't homophobic or anything, but I don't think that he would believe me that I'm a lesbian, and I also think he would be very upset, and he wouldn't accept it. And I don't know what I should do. I need to be able to tell my parents, because I hate lying to them when I'm going out on a date with a girl...I just don't know how to tell them. They are divorced, and I live with my dad, but I am going to my mom's tomorrow, so if someone could give me some advice before I go, I would really appreciate it. Thanks.
