What do I do if my family doesn't necessarily support me?


Recommended Posts

I'm a 17 year old female and recently came out to my family (mother, father, and 2 brothers). My brothers and father dont really care but my mother does. She doesn't believe in Bisexuality she says "Its either one or the other you can't have both". I know she loves me but I also know she doesn't support me either.

Hey @Xplrgirl


A big welcome to our community,


I'm sorry your Mum doesn't accept your identity. Bi-erasure is so common and i'm sorry someone in your own family feels that way. Our research shows that most of us do not identify as straight and sexuality is far more of a spectrum than one or another. Could it be worth leading her to some articles https://www.ditchthelabel.org/i-am-a-bisexual-man/

We're here for you!
