Something has been bugging me since I first came out. I once told a relative of mine that I was gay. It was hard enough for me to tell them and then they go and say "I don't respect your decision." I wondered why. They said that they didn't respect it because I've never dated or had any relationship with a girl before.
How would I know for sure? I mean, do you have to go out with a girl or a guy to know if you're gay or do you just know? It's funny though how she said that to me and yet she doesn't say "I don't respect your decision." to our straight relatives.
I just wonder if anyone else has ever faced this predicament before.
