Yesterday, I informed my younger cousin that she is a lesbian. I don't know if I was the first person to tell her this or not, but she didn't take the news too well. In fact, when I told her this, she called me a "************" and punched me in the arm. It is really sad that some people are so homophobic. Is there anything that I can do to help her adjust to the news?

Hail Eris!

Woah there, you told her that she is a lesbian? Call me crazy here, but isn't it up to her to determine her own sexual identity?

Yeah, it is up to her to figure that out and even if she is, she needs to figure it out on her own.

Anyways how do you know this? No one can decided if she is a lesbian except her.

Excuse me? I agree with the other responses but I'm curious on how her hitting you makes her homophobic. She's also homophobic because she denies that she's a lesbian?

Have you researched this site and others to realize that sexual orientation is often NOT openly visible?

mnsouthpawjr,

It's unnecessary and bit of a waste of bandwidth to quote the original message you are replying to. If you want to address certain points it's fine to quote that point and use it to respond but anything else is just redundant.

Thanks.
