I Wasn't Prepared for Their Response

My dad is a Bishop of the LDS church, and I had known for the longest time that I was Pansexual, because why just like someone for their gender, right? So anyway, I was done hiding, and I wanted my parents to know, and I was going to tell them that night at dinner.

"Are you GAY?"

I thought i got it figured out. I had a hetero-sexual relationship, maybe it will go away- those feelings of attraction to men.
But then it hit me.
I knew him before- we went together to the same school, but he was one year older than me.

The Mop Stick

Apparently being okay with your sexuality is not enough reason for others to be okay with you. I was in gradeschool and I played with girls and boys. I didn't care if I flick my hands when I throw balls or when I point my toes when I run.

Why does this sound like a rehearsed speech? 

Ultimately, there is no right or wrong way to come out. Some people can speak from the heart and it flows out making perfect sense. For me, I always need to gather my thoughts, put them in order, and practice saying them without stuttering the whole time.
