Ex-Straight by twixtnightandmorn Ex-Straight by twixtnightandmorn
*Disclaimer*

These are in no way bashing straight people, I just really resent the misguided belief among certain groups that love is a disease that can be "cured". Since an awful lot of news about kids committing suicide over being told that they need to be cured of being gay has been brought to my attention lately, this is what my twisted sense of humor came up with. As I have stated previously, I'm not saying any one way of life is better than any other; I think it's about time we all grew up, put our big people pants on and learned to live and let live.

I could blame you, dear, but then I'd have to pretend I'm not loving every minute of it... and that's just so not true. :heart: I love you. :heart:

This is a strong message to a lot of people out there with children who are gay and/or questioning their sexuality.

It's very sad that parents aren't accepting to their own child's sexuality and would rather shun them, keep them quiet or force them into being straight again. I think some parents (if not all) should be open-minded about this and at least accept the fact that your child may or may not produce grandchildren.

And frankly, I think it scares a lot of parents and it forces them to do irrational or horrible things to their gay/lesbian/questioning son or daughter. And the son or daughter are forced to go with it or escape it by A: Running away; B: Getting disowned; or C: Committing Suicide -- and I wouldn't recommend any of them. And some (if not most) has to do with what religion we all grew up in and I know that in the Mormon religion, your homosexual, your parents will disown you because it's against their beliefs for their child to have feelings of sexuality or romance with the same sex.

Anyway, basically, people are afraid that with the rise of homosexuality, there won't be any children left on earth for the next generation. Sorry for ranting so much.. XD -- I get very touchy and rather talkive on a subject like this. :XD:

Thank you, and I agree completely. I was about 16 or 17 when I told my birth mother I was bi-sexual, and the first thing she did was start praying and commanding the demon to get out of me. It was so bad that I never talked to her about it again until last week when I told her about my girlfriend, which she still can't accept, and has made very clear she doesn't approve at all. I'm twenty-six and living in a different city from her - I haven't lived with her since I was 3, but still, the fact that the woman who gave birth to me, who really hasn't made that many great choices in her life, would rather I'd be unhappy and pretending to be straight then happy like I am now with my wonderful girlfriend with whom I can actually be myself... it really sickens me, and I can't stand the thought of teenagers or anyone else going through that.

:( - That's horrible of your mother to think that there is a demon inside of you. Sad to say, if my mother was still alive, I'd be shunned too because she may have tolerated that life style, she didn't expect her own children to be that life-style too.

My dad and his side of the family are completely accepting of my way life, stating: "If you're happy, then we're happy that you're happy." -- And that was a big shock for me when I heard that from them; it just made me happier to know that I can bring my girlfriend around my dad's side and not be ashamed about it at all. It's just my mom's side I have to really watch out for.. *winces* Anyway, I came out to my dad when I was about 17-ish (can't quite remember when, but around my junior year).

And it's just horrible to think that your own MOTHER who birthed and raised you (sort of) thinks that you're possessed by a demon just because you chose that way of life is rather... well, horrible. *hugs* I hope that some day your mother will get over the fact that you are happy about your lifestyle and eventually accept the fact. But, for now, as I like to say: Let's wait it out until the end!

My mother didn't raise me, she left me when I was very young and my parents adopted me when I was a teenager. I've never met my birth father, but from what I gather he wouldn't approve either. My dad (the legal one who raised me) died last year, and he was agnostic like I am, so I don't think he would have minded, though I know he was anti-gay marriage. My mother that I live with is like your mother was though, she knows I'm bi but she doesn't deal with it, and I don't tell her about my life. It just makes things easier (being 26 and disabled so you have no choice to live at home when you want nothing more than to be on your own really stinks).

It sucks, but we have to suffer through it and I'm really glad that my dad's side is very tolerant of this sort of thing. I hope that your life gets better slowly, but surely! :hug:
