When I came out at 14, my mom said it was just a phase. A few months later after suffering a sexual tragedy against myself from a male, my mom asked me if I was straight. She was already disappointed in what had happened this summer and disappointed in my sexuality so I lied and told her I was. To this day, I haven’t tried to come out again. 17, female, pan/demisexual
