I came out as bisexual to my parents last summer ...

Hello. I came out as bisexual to my parents last summer and am still having trouble with it. My mom (who is very conservative) actually said: "I still love you as my daughter, but I don't accept this" when I recently asked her about it. She also keeps threatening to tell my sister and if she does I'll be in for some REAL abuse, because my sister's very homophobic and believes most stereotypes about GLBT people, no matter what I say to try and teach her. I asked my dad for help since he's pretty accepting of my sexuality, but he hasn't been too successful. Any ideas?

A broken child

Being he father of a son who is gay, Made me take the time to write this If you look at your child Just look at him or her as your child, And not something that you do not fully understand You will see that this child is your son or daughter You will see that nothing has changed in them What is changed is you the mother or father Not your child Remember this they are the same children, That you loved the day before they told you

I told my mom about my sexuality and I doubt ...

Dear AlterHeros, I have told my mom recently that I'm bi; about two weeks ago, and when I told her, she said I was too young to know what I am (I'm 15). I wasn't afraid of telling her because of her disowning me or anything, because she is A-okay with gays, but I was afraid that she wouldn't believe me. She said she didn't mean to judge me. We haven't talked about it since and I kind of wish we would because it would make me feel better knowing that she trusts my intuition. I don't know what to do. - Shannon
