pls mom don’t hate me
The content of this comic is heartbreaking but the art style is kinda hilarious. Could you please tell me what to feel?
Actually me too, I find this heartbreaking and hilarous at the same time this is so weird.
My grandma said something along the lines of this while we were watching the news one night, during a piece of a gay man mourning his deceased lover whose family refused to let the living man so much as visit the grave after the funeral. I nearly burst into tears because at the time, I was identifying as bisexual (now identify as pansexual). My mom asked me what was wrong, and that’s how I came out to her.
When we talked amongst ourselves about my coming out some time later, she commented that, while she was holding me while I cried, she could actually feel the tension drain from my body when I told her I was bisexual.
This is why it’s so, so important for non-LGBT, especially allies, to understand exactly what kind of an impact their words have on us. Never, ever make a comment assuming that everyone in the room is straight or cis.
