I'm 19, live at home during the summer and work here and then go to college fall through spring. I came out this summer to friends and yesterday to my younger brother who took it pretty well actually. The only ones that don't know now are my parents. However it's pretty shitty actually...my parents make gay jokes all the time -- whether they're out in public and see a flamboyant gay person or we're at the dinner table and they say something or talk shit. I'm no flamboyant or obviously gay person...I look at act "straight" you could say. The thing is I know my parents will be unbelievably upset as they worked their ass off to help better my life and they will see this as me telling them to fuck off...even though its not like that. I was born in Germany and moved here when I was young...but they are still your typical "immigrant parents"...who don't understand modern America but will work their assess off to benefit their children. I think my Mom will just cry and be angry at me, but I think my Dad will tell me to get the fuck out of the house and may even cut me off...dont know if they will let me come back. So this is what kills me...not sure if it is worth telling them as I NEED them financially right now unless I want to go into huge debt and be homeless. My boyfriend is out to his parents and I've slept over there in the past but I dont think they'd be very keen on me LIVING there in his room...he just came out to them a few weeks ago... What does OT think I should do? Come out? Stay in? Move out? Off myself?
