Well, guys, something's been on my mind lately, and I figured maybe someone on here could give me some advice on it. I am bisexual and in the closet about it. I've known I've had an interest in men since the 7th grade, and I've gone through phases where I've thought I was gay, thought maybe I was straight and the interest in men was a curiosity or a phase, but I've been sure for about two years now that I am indeed bisexual. What I need advice on is telling my parents and friends. I've told my dad once before, but he called me a faggot and stopped talking to me for a while, until I eventually told him that I was just confused and had figured out I was straight, because I was afraid of being disowned. I'm pretty sure my mom would be okay with it, but not entirely, considering she's just as christian as my dad. And my friends would be okay with it, the majority of them anyways, but I don't care about those who would get weirded out by it. "Those who mind don't matter." My biggest problem is my dad, I love my dad, and I don't want to lose him just because of my sexuality. I mean, sure, we get into a lot of arguments about different things like the existence of god, politics, whatever, but he's still my dad, and I still love him. What can I do to get my dad to not disown me by letting him know that I'm bisexual?
