I have a question for the Homies: How do you, as an adult in your agency, tell your parents things they don’t want to hear?
For many reasons, including my religious and ethical beliefs, I feel I need to tell my parents that I am in a polyamorous relationship. I’ve previously come out to them as queer and trans, which feels different from this conversation.
Coming out feels like I’m sharing some information about myself so they can change their behavior; telling them that I’m dating more than one person feels like I’m selfishly telling them something they don’t want to hear, so that I can live more honestly. How do I do this? -Colleen
Queer or straight. Poly or mono. Whatever. We ALL have had to tell things our parents didn’t want to hear. How do YOU have tough talks with your parents?
