Im 12 and I accidentally told my dad I was bisexual. So I have had crushes on boys before but I recently realized I had a crush on a girl and realized I was bisexual. So my little sister, brother, dad, and I were having a conversation and it went super off topic to where my dad told me “You better not be liking no girls.” And I replied “well I do like a girl.” And he said “Your face is turning red you’re lying.” At this point I was scared because I hadn’t meant to say it and my dads reaction made me really nervous. He then told me to go get my phone so he could delete my friends contacts and said I was no longer allowed to see my friends. Well I ran outside into the backyard and told my mom what had happened she hugged me but then I ran out the back gate and down the street. I started crying and ran around the block. About halfway around the block and stopped crying and started talking to myself. When I got back home I sat down with my parents and I told them I did not want to be ridiculed or belittled for my beliefs and they said that was fine and my dad apologized and said he was there to support me. This was fine until they started going off about respect and how if I wanted to be respected I should show everyone else respect. I was a little confused and angry about why they would bring this up NOW. But anyways I knew I had been known to be a little disrespectful from time to time so I but my tongue and just left.
I thought I’d put this out there to make myself feel better and it kind of worked so... yeah anyways that’s it.
