Are any of your children at the age that they've asked questions about sexuality?
Or if they know you are in a relationship with a woman (or have been), have they asked about it? Or do they just seem to 'go with the flow'??

do you remember ever discussing sexuality with YOUR parents?

DD is still too young for me to have any talks with her. But, we are extremely close with my mom and her partner and also my brother who is gay, so she will grow up in a very accepting and nonjudgmental environment. Eventually, I'm sure we will have a talk, but that's pretty far off.

I remember my mom having a talk with me once when she was still married to my dad. She told me that she would support me no matter what and wouldn't judge.

that's a REALLY good point actually... I think my children will probably be the same way... Lauriel's kids will both have Mum & Dad active in their life when we're living together, but for my girls.. they'll barely ever see their fathers, so I guess the familial norm they'll know IS two Mum's.......

As for me... I have spoken to Gaby, but it was more of a brief 'men can love men, women can love women' type talk, and not specifically about *my* sexuality... She knows that me and Lauriel are in love, and that we're getting married and she's excited about it!

I have never spoken to my parents about my sexuality as such... We've never sat down and discussed the fact I'm in love with a woman, or feel sexually attracted to women.. they just accept it for what it is

Popping in because this popped up on a search for me...but uhh...why are there three banned people? I knew that last girl from another forum! Anywho...HI EMMA! My parents were always jerks about sexuality. They taught us just by show that it was gross for people to be in same sex relationships. They would "ew" at the images and things like that. With my kids, I talk about it like it's exactly the same. They don't notice the difference yet, they usually just ask me if people who are kissing are married. I plan to keep it as "normal" to them as possible because I don't want them raised to feel negatively about gays like we were.
