I'm bi and have definitely been so for about a year, maybe more. I'm 16 and a guy.
Recently I have truly come to grips and have actually enjoyed being bi. (not sex or anything, just thinking about my life and future, and checking out guys )
I have only told my best friend, who is also 16 and a guy, but straight. He was really sweet about the whole thing and he is a great friend.
I don't think I will have such success with my brother, who is 13, or with my mom. My father is Japanese, (I was born in Japan but have lived in the US my whole life) and my parents are separated. He lives in Japan, and I haven't seen him in a few years; and he doesn't speak english terrifically.
I have no idea what Japanese perspective on gay, lesbian and bi people is at all... and I have no real way of finding out, since I don't read Japanese very well.
As you can see, I have quite a problem. Right now, sitting tight and talking to my best friend works fine, I'm not bursting to tell my family. However, it is something I think about alot...
Any thoughts? Comments? Suggestions?
