Today, I came out to my parents. I don't really fit any stereotype, I'm just an average guy who happens to be into guys. Ten minutes later, I overheard my mother say to my step-dad, "Should we redecorate his room pink?" FML

At least they're trying to support you, it can't be easy knowing how to act at first even though thy should be the exact same it'd be confusing for them at first.

When my older brother came out, it was a huge shock. No one hated him or treated him different but my parents didn't even know what to do, even though they didn't need to do anything. My mom tried to get him into knitting. SMH.

You should have a talk and explain to them that you're not suddenly a different person just because you like guys.

I really think it's sad how so many people don't understand that real people rarely fit into stereo-types.

Or you know... maybe they were just being supportive in their weird parent way. I wish there was "your life is average" button for this FML. I know a few friends and a friends of friends who were outed by their families once they came out (hello, Mississippi!) and for one friend, her house was turned into a neighborhood drama scene and her father even pulled out a gun and told her he'd rather see his daughter his daughter dead than be a "c***-licking-devil's-spawn" :O so glad she's moved away! Anyway, yeah, your life is pretty average... neither FYL or YDI really apply to you.

But bacon is so greasy!
He's gay, he would never go for something as heart-attack causing, artery clogging, fat giving as bacon

No matter how delicious

105 - Do you have a problem with us gays? We deserve love just as much as anyone else does. We can't help the way we're born. You ACTUALLY think we'd choose this if we could? Being ridiculed and shot down constantly just for being attracted to people of the same sex?

Ignorant asses like you sicken me.

Hey, it's not like OP had a choice. Saying "YDI for being gay" is like saying "YDI for being black," or "YDI for being a girl."

You see where I'm getting it? Being a homosexual is as normal as being a different race or a different gender.

Good thing? Speak for your self, Chick-fil-a has the best chicken and it sucks that people in the UK don't have.

No matter what the owners opinion is... it's one of those where you gotta say "fuck it, the chickens more important."

Well you're an ass.

You caught me. I'm actually a donkey in a man suit. I've been trying to hide it all these years, but I guess I have to come out of the stable now. Who's the ass now? Technically, still me.


Because they are ignorant asshats who think being gay is a sin, and have their heads too far up their own ass to realize love is love , and gender shouldn't get in the way of how you feel.

It's good you came out OP and it sounds like their accepting but not fully understanding that the stereotype doesn't really hold true. Plus what's wrong with liking pink and being straight? It's not a girly colour in the first place.

Hmmm stereotypes much, 24? I'm not religious and also don't like homosexuality. Ever thought people don't like it because it's disgusting and unnatural?

To account for some of them, people like me accidentally click ydi on mobile devices. They're so close together and respond to the slightest touch!

  ygdrassil  |  17

Some people see that there are so many fewer YDI than FYL and click it to feel like they're special. Idiotic, really. And some people like to be a jerk on the internet as long as they can and not too many people have done so yet.

  yupitssoph  |  18

Sometimes it happens accidentally, sometimes people are assholes, and sometimes if the ydi number is something like 999 I'll click ydi just to make it even. I always feel really bad when I do that so I always click fyl as well.

One of the reasons why prople said YDI could be because the situation isn't all that bad. He came out to his parents, and even though they were sterotyping him they still seemed to except and love him.

Yeah they should and when they're done they should redecorate your moms side of your parents room to look like a kitchen, and your dads side to look like a thing. It's only fair.
