I am staying with my parents for two weeks before my summer school starts, and although my mom is accepting, she is terrified of me telling my dad. I am not. I don't feel that immediate urge to tell him, but I really am not afraid of it. She got really upset when I was talking about this Lesbian movie (Bound -I recommend it) in the house because I was "too loud" and that dad might hear.
So even though she is accepting, I really feel like I am having to lie to keep her happy. I dunno. I feel like she feels like my situation is threatening to her.
She has also put her foot down against me going to the Pride parade, even though he will be out of town when it happens.
She is worried that skinheads will be there and that I will get knifed.
I don't think I am going to get to go, even though I really want to.
Has anyone else ever heard of violence at these events because I don't think it's anywhere near as bad a problem as she thinks it is.
