I highly doubt anybody will take the time to completely read, let alone respond, to this post (no one ever does) but whatever, I'll post it anyways.
Okay, so here's the story...
I'm 14 and I've been planning and preparing to tell my parents I'm lesbian for a while. I've recently started a relationship with a girl I've been good friends with since 6th grade, her name is Beth. We're really trying hard to make this relationship last because we like eachother very much and we really want to show the world that there is nothing wrong with two girls in a healthy, stable, loving relationship. I have decided to tell my parents about my sexuality soon so I don't have to hide my affection for Beth from them. Here's the problem; I'm not sure if I should tell my parents about Beth right off the bat or if I should wait until they have come to accept my sexuality. I want to tell them because I am sick of hiding things from them and Beth has been gently urging me to tell them, also, I know they do like Beth and if I told them about us it may help my parents accept that homosexuals are not all obnoxious, perverted, attention seeking, demons; like so many stereotypes suggest. But, I'm worried that if I tell them right away they may reject the idea because people tend to think that it is impossible to have a serious relationship at this age (I don't blame them, some of the "relationships" I hear about are just stupid), also, I'm worried they might blame Beth for my "problem". I love my parents and I really want to be completely honest with them but I don't want to throw too much in their faces at once.
I really need to get this figured out soon. Dragging this around with me is starting to affect my schoolwork and musical practices. I can't carry on lying to my parents. I have asked around on many other message boards and no one has ever answered me. Please help!!
