Mom: I didn’t hear you say anything about this special person in your life coming around this last week when you were sick. Did he not want to get sick, too?
Me: Still avoiding your questions! I’ll tell you when you’re ready.
Mom: Its not a guy is it?
Me: Do you actually…
Fuck. I’m sorry about the shit that’s going down with your mom. I want you to know that when my mom came out her mom had a similar attitude but it didn’t last. My grandma learned to love and accept her daughter for who she was. I hope the same happens for you.
In the meantime you have me and the other people you’ve met through tumblr and we love you. As I tell my own daughter, “Family is about love, not blood,”
