PostSubject: How to handle a family situation   Tue Feb 02, 2010 11:02 am

Just looking for yer advice.

My older sister and myself used to really really get on an we were really close for years but in the last while wev startd to move apart. Mostly because whenever its tv, radio or somene in the road that she thinks is gay or is a bit feminine she goes through the whole homophobic comments thing.

Im not out and i dont think i ever want to be but can any1 suggest any ways of handling this that wont show me up for being gay and hofully help her see gay people arent any diff then any1 else.

Its realy starting to effect me as out fo them all we used to be the closest. I dont lve at home anymor so when ever i see her it realy takes the niceness of gettin home as the last 4 tmes its happened. Part of me is also afraid she knows and is talkin this way coz she disproves.

What would you do?

Sounds awful. Though id reckon if shes always going on about the same thing there is something up. She could eb annoyed at ya for being gay. Not telling her. Dissapionted that you ahvent said it or just worried about ya and using the whole scare thing to try to encourage ya to live the life were expected ta.

Id try to focus on other things. Send a few texts off now and then about something ye both have in common. Flood the conversation with stuff about her so at the very least itl be a diffrent topic and ye can get started on mendin those bridges.

Who knows whats going on or whats coming for ye r the family but at the very least yal have the understandin that regardless of all that homophobic shite yer still family and she obviously loves ya
