In november of last year when i came out to my parents as bisexual, they were upset(understatement), but claimed they always new id 'adapt' this 'lifestyle'. Over the course of the last 4-ish months they have repeatedly brought up the it up when it wasnt mentioned or needed to be, they bring me to church, make me give them my phone so they can 'check' it, always keep tabs on me when im not at home and have grounded me from staying over in friends houses when i go out. Fast forward to tonight, i accidently let it slip that i was seeing someone, a guy, they have taken my phone off me and have been reading through our text messages and talking to him as if they were me. im really upset and i need some help and/or advice on how to deal with this situation.
Well evanjames1 i think you should put passwords on your phone and computer make it as prvate as possible you can even dowload apps where you can put passwords on several apps so you choose what they see and dont good luck
Im really sorry but you can't really do anything about your parents... I'm bi but only hint it to my mom. She doesn't 'believe in bisexuals' just stay strong and try to just block it out. Don't talk to them about it. There's really nothing else that you can do. I'm here to talk if you need to
Hi, my name is Katie, and I'm 19 years old. When I was in middle school, I told my sister that I am attracted to girls and boys, but not to tell our parents. Naturally, she told my grandmother, who was helping my dad raise us, I then had to explain to my grandmother that I was bisexual. She would tell me things like "pick a side you're either gay or not gay", "You just want attention", "People who are bisexual are sluts, and I didn't raise you that way", ect. It made me feel more depressed then I was before, but this is only the start, one day I was trying to explain it to her, and I ended up saying "I do like both genders, but I prefer girls" so she told everyone that I was gay. For years I had to pretend that I wasn't bi, I would cry at night because I felt trapped and alone, but at my senior year I decided that I would tell my dad, so I did and he told me "I love Katie, and it doesn't matter if you are gay, bi, whatever. I will always love and support you, no matter what." My grandmother on the other hand, decided I was a "trouble child", telling me things like "the house key you have is for one of the locks, when you move out you wont be able to come back" and mocking me because I'm "fat" and the occasional "slut". I am now in an open polyamorous relationship, and I am so happy, I refuse to let anyone tell me that my sexuality is not valid, I am strong, and I refuse to be pushed around any longer.
