Okay today me and my mother started having one of our famed debates. We got on the subject of relashionships ,like friendly, with LGBT people. I am a lesbian and very much in the closest with my family. My mother ,trying to make a point in the debate, asked me if I was gay or straight. And I have had this thing were I try to be as truthful as I can with her ,but I am not ready to tell her so I told her I was staight. Which I am not. So now I kinda feel (for lack of better word) guilty about lying or somthing like that. I don't know what to do. I feel bad but I can't tell her. I am just in need of advice I guess.

Kyou's mutt: There are SO many people that have that same internal debate of if and what to say to parents. And it's even more difficult when you have a relationship with parents that's somewhat rocky to begin with. But know that how you're feeling is perfectly normal. But there's no reason for you to feel bad about this, everyone comes to a point of being ready to discuss orientation with parents in their own time. I'm in the same place with my own parents,but hang in there. You'll know when the time is right, and in the meantime don't feel bad because you're just not to where you need to be yet to feel ready, and that's perfectly ok.

Yeah, it doesn't help that she tries to get the name of the boy I like either. And when I say I don't like anyone she yells at me for lying and I get stuff taken away from me. I really hope she isn't figuring it out because then I will probably get kicked out of the house and I can't have that happen to me. I mean I can't even get a job or anything yet!! It's just really stressful...
