OKAY BUT SOMETHING ENORMOUS HAPPENED TONIGHT GUYS
ok basically i identify as, well, not straight. i don’t particularly like slapping labels on it so i normally identify under the umbrella term of ‘queer’ instead of whatever-sexual.
anyway, my mum’s liberal but in a “oh i don’t mind gay people as long as they’re not my kids” kind of way, which is not her fault, but rather the fault of her parents for sending her to a catholic school and BEING TAUGHT BY NUNS, but today when i was helping her make dinner, she turned to me and said
"you know, i wouldn’t mind if you had a girlfriend or a boyfriend, rebecca, as long as you were happy"
i nearly cried, i swear to god, this is so big, you can’t even comprehend how monumental this is, this is the woman who hoped fervently that all this talk of finding girls attractive was “just a phase”
so i said “thanks” in this really small happy voice and continued peeling carrots
