Yes, I'm sure Jennifer would agree with this!
I was in too much of a hurry to write as much as I should have at first (even in three posts
But a lot of you will recall me posting in other threads that I used to consider myself "straight," discovered in-the-event
that I'm "bi," and that now I am happy to label myself "gay" because I'm in a committed gay relationship. I guess I'm the bisexual woman of which Verbivore speaks. It works for me!
I will add that for some time Jennifer feared that I was just having some sort of "experimental fling" with her. It took her a while to realize that I truly didn't miss, er, the male anatomy.
She also was afraid that I'd react very badly to people finding out about me (all our friends certainly already knew about her). She was pretty amazed that it didn't upset me in the least, that I was delighted to attend a Pride march with her, etc., etc. After that, she decided that she wanted to finally come out to her mother. She isn't nearly as supportive as my family, unfortunately, but was accepting and Jen felt good about telling her.
Another coming-out episode: The first person I took the initiative to tell was my little sister, then 17; I didn't want to risk her finding out second-hand. I was pretty sure that she'd be cool with it, but the reaction I got was: "That's GREAT! I'm SO relieved! I've been wondering if I'm
bi, and ...." Last thing I was expecting!
