I think he is exaggerating the extent of it, but if you look hard enough you might find something in about half a sentence of what he said.

But lets not make this another thread about smith or F74 hey?

I'm just afraid that it'd change their opinion of me. Is it something that I need to do?

2 of my close male friends are gay and an old female friend of mine is also gay. Out of the three, only one come out to their parents, one of the guys.

When M came out to his folks they were not suprised. He is quite obvious in his "gay-ness" (for want of a better word) and they were just happy for him to be happy. They've supported him through a couple of breakups, some ups and downs and are really wonderful. He's very close with his mum and she is very proud of him and almost gloats about the fact that he's gay to anyone that will listen adorable

The other gay guy, J, has not, and probably never will come out to his parents. He is from a very strick greek orthodox family who shun same sex relationships majorly. They have expressed to him explicitly that they would not consider anyone in their family to be a part of the family if they were involved in a same sex relationship. They have told him how it is the greatest offence to the family name, how it would make their family name dirt and how such an embarrasment could never be forgiven I doubt that J will ever come out to his folks. His family is more important to him than his sexuality - in his words.

The girl, F, hasn't yet come out to her folks. She's been with her girlfriend for many many years, and they have a gorgeous, healthy relationship. Her family knows her girlfriend but she has not yet found the courage to tell them. I think they would know, but its kind of the unspoken thing. She's from a "good catholic family" so its almost a better left unsaid situation. She has said that she's not sure that she'll ever tell them, and made the point to me once that i don't share with my folks what happens in my bedroom, so why should she? Interesting point i reckon.

I don't know what i'm trying to achieve in telling you all this...maybe that no situation is the same. There's no right or wrong way to do things, or the right time. If you think you need to tell your folks, then i'm sure you'll know when the time is right. But don't get too weighed down with that aspect of who you are

Yes, I pity you but not because you're gay. It has something/a lot to do with the fact that you are one angry, jaded and twisted little blatherskite.

What the fuck are on about smith? There is no scientific consensus for how sexuality is formed.

And thanks everyone for the serious replies and stories. It helps. I'm still a long way off telling them, if ever. I think a good time to tell them would be if I was living abroad. That way they'd have some time to get used to the idea before I saw them face to face.

I told my parents about 5 years after I'd told my two sisters and I kinda wish I'd told them earlier as I don't think they really appreciated the rest of the family knowing and not them.

My dad took it really well, said he wasn't suprised and then got me a drink. Easy! My mum didn't take it so well...cried for a good hour and couldn't speak to me, then she started to come round and asked lot's of tough questions but still wasn't comprehending that I was gay. I think because I don't fit the stereotypes she had trouble accepting it, and as I've always had lot's of female friends she thought I was some kind of playboy.

Fast forward a few months and everything is cool. They've invited my boyfriend on family holidays, speak to him on the phone ect ect...it's exactly what I hoped for.

My advice is to not feel pressured into it. Be prepared for the questions and be as honest as possible and stay calm. It might rock the boat a bit, but everyone calms down in the end and you'll be able to be happy with your life and feel open like you never have before. Good luck matey!

If I was gay I dont think I would have any trouble at all in telling them (though I understand speaking hypothetically is a completley different thing). I dunno, my parents have always said from a very young age that I could tell them anything and they will support it.

Also there is a lot of gheys on ITM I am starting to notice

Come out come out wherever you are! You'll feel so much better for it and you'll probably find that those people who you most expected to reject you or even feel not so comfortable about your orientation, will actually be sad that you felt that way in the first place.

One of my bestmates also comes from a strict Greek Orhodox family. He is also very obvious with his gayness. He has never come out to his family, yet 32 and no girlfriend ever??!! Hello!!

His father pleaded with him a few years ago to just PLEASE get married and do whatever he likes on the side. Pretty sad. I think having to hide something like your sexuality from your family and people who love you.. is hiding such a massive part of who you are. They will never understand you. Having said that though, I feel my sexuality definitely doesn't define me as a person.

As a gay man, I like tits a lot. But only if they're milky.

Oh sorry, the conversation's moved on...

I'm still waiting for my Brother to come out to my parents. He's off to live in Calgary for a while in November. I think once he gets the distance between the olds he will be out and out.

So you thought it was going to cause problems and you did it at your brothers 21st. Thats a pretty shitty thing to do, quite selfish. Lucky you were wrong and all there was was a few tears, but still a dick move and selfish imho.

It is because male sexuality is so polarized at the social level that a one-or-other identification becomes necessary. It's a positive feedback loop in which the social pressure creates the division which in turn is enhanced by the social pressure.

It was a bit cowardly, but I did it and that is all that matters. As I have grown up/older, I had to come out many many times over and over again. Now, I just dont give a fuck. I dont even consider myself gay anymore, or str8 or bi, I have found myself with a girlfriend now at 30 years of age after seeing guys exclusively all through my 20s. It is only a big deal in ur own head, nobody who is worth caring about gives a fuck who you sleep with.
Coming out to those you care about will take a huge weight off your shoulders. Do it sooner rather than later

So you un-gayed yourself?

I's take a guess that it would have had more to do with the "being drunk" thing rather than the "brother's 21st" thing. Don't be so quick to judge, dude.

For the record,

1: I do like boobies just not that way... cbf'ed explaining it before... I actually like them so much thought the PussyCatDolls song was "Boobies" not "Groupies" for ages, and I actually like that song

2: As for Ian's 21st, wasn't my fault, one of my best mate's and my dad had been away from the party talking for like an hour. I came in and asked what's going on (I had been smashing it hard core as just got back from Europe) my mate just looked at me and said "Just tell him" so I did... It only took some attention away for like 30 minutes then everything was awesome!! SO Totally not intentional and didn't upset the party...

3: Trev, I am not a geek, I am a trashbag!

when i knew i was gay and had to eventually let the parents know ,i was at the crossroads. do i sit them both down and tell them and break their hearts as dad was always "macho" and mum always wanted grandkids. so thought it would be better to break it to dad first. not the response i was expecting but after i told him he bent me over had his way with me and said he had been gay for years and said i have the cutest butt hes ever seen . never been happier

I never said he chose his brothers 21st on purpose but people use the drunk excuse too much. There are more appropriate occasions. But hey no harm was done and being that someone else initiated the conversation it's more on them.

Actually 'being drunk' works as an excuse for most people so well so often because... well... most people are drunk so often.

Alcohol removes inhibitions. It's why people get laid, why people tell people they love them, why people king hit strangers and why gay people tell family members they're gay... in what may seem to another to be an 'inappropriate' situation.

I dunno, on some level I think that because I felt attracted to guys as a teenager, and because it was my deap dark dirty secret that I obsessed and obsessed about, I do wonder if I to some degree talked myself into my identifying as gay.

Then again it could just be that I love cock so much

Mate thats not gay your just a pussy.
I know of a liquid substance that comes in a bottle which will fix you right up

Im surprised nobody has mentioned the following, though i remember registering yonks ago i havent hit it up in like, forever.

Perhaps some people over there may be able to help you through this? (anyone here a member that frequents the forums may be able to tell you what goes on over there)

I think if i were gay i would still be a boobies (as in big juicy womens boobies) man. I just dont know how anyone can resist

Ive been around quite a few gays. One of my (kinda) bosses/friends eventually told both his parents. Either that or from memory i think it was one of those situations where they just realised it one day and mumbled it out and he agreed. Kinda avoiding the whole "talk"
From what i have been told the mother took it relatively easy but the dad took a while to get over it. In the end i think everyone was kinda happy and comfortable with it all.

The other one has told his mum, brothers but not his dad (this one is like 36 or something)
Dont think he every worked up the balls to tell his old man, or perhaps the right time just never came round (his parents broke up so it was relatively easy to keep hidden from one)

I think in the end you want to be happy, and for your parents to know that you are happy will make life easier. Even if they dont particularly like the idea, im sure they will come to terms with it one day and be glad that you are comfortable with who you are and how you are living your life.

BTW, ill happily turn gay for one man and one man alone. You all know who he is

Seriously though surely the OPs question is going to depend entirely on ther nature of the parents- if I'd been gay coming out to my mother would be no real drama, she's a fag hag from way back and would be cool with it- but my dad would disown me on the spot. I have a lesbian freind whose mother's reaction was to disown her daughter and claim that god must be punishing her for some awful sin, and I know other people whose parents have basically just said "yeah we know, about time you told us!"

horses for courses nettsu - it works for some people... I suppose it depends on what you want to get out of it.

as for the original question - I don't think you have to come out to anyone including your parents if you dont want to or aren't ready to. Coming out to yourself is probably the biggest thing for most people. Once that happens you will slowly tell your friends, workmates, strangers etc... slowly you will gain the confidence to tell your family.

The initial response may not be the best, but in the end they love you and will hopefully come to understand. Give them time to do that but dont compromise who you are to facilitate this.

good luck
