she obviously felt that she couldn't talk to you about it, but couldn't you handle not knowing anymore. maybe if you were more open with her and supportive, she would have just come to talk to you in the first place. YDI.
My sister told my family she was bisexual a few weeks back. First thing my dad said was "That is hot."
Why? There's been no hurtful speech, no insults being slung, no slurs being uttered. What I've seen so far is fairly tame jokes, outpourings of respect for the daughter for coming out, and fairly gentle admonitions of the mother for not seeming to be someone the daughter could tell face-to-face. The simple fact that a comment thread includes discussions of sexuality and sexual orientation does NOT mean it needs to be closed. Edit: This was supposed to be in reply to the comment below about comments being closed 'any moment now'.
Maybe sitting down face to face was too hard. I hate doing that, it's so uncomfortable.
