When I came out to my parents, I was almost disappointed at their lack of reaction, as selfish as that sounds. Now, after reading about so many bad reactions, I’m thankful they accepted me. I was googling pride flags, my mom asked why, and I said, “Well, I mean, I’m bi” and she went silent for a moment. The only thing my dad said was “OK, be careful.” 14, female, bi?/pan?
