That's some smart thinking
Most people would say that you should just face your fears and let the whole world about your sexual orientation, but that’s not always the smartest idea if you’re financially dependent on someone who just doesn’t get it. Things may have turned out differently for this brother and sister, who are both homosexual, if they weren’t so lucky in love. They’ve devised a stunning plan to be able to spend quality time with their same-sex lovers right in the comfort of their religious parents’ house.
Teen years are hard for everyone. Your body is growing quickly, your experiencing physical changes unlike any other time in your life, and your hormones are making you feel things you don’t quite understand yet.
When those feelings attract you to the same sex, things can be even harder for you.
Feelings about different sexualities have changed since fifty years ago when homosexuality was deemed sinful and wrong. It just doesn’t matter as much anymore if you’re gay, bi, pan, or other.
Yet, it can still be quite a shock to some people to learn that their precious teen kids aren’t straight.
It can also be hard for a sibling to find out that the person they knew their entire lives was keeping such a secret, even when they’re gay themselves.
Reddit user envied explained, “When I first found out, I was a little startled. It was bad, and I guess I’m still coming to terms with it. It’s weird being gay and then being legitimately surprised that someone else is bi in your immediate family.
My brother came out to me a couple of weeks after I came out to him. He has been dating his girlfriend for.. idk maybe 9 years now. When we were younger though, I would open his drawers and find dildos sometimes. I gave him the benefit of the doubt and thought he used them for his girlfriend, but I guess I always kinda thought it was for him, too.
He must have been drunk when he told me.. because it was a weird text message to receive and it was like 4 in the morning. He told me it’s weird but he has always been curious. I just replied that it’s fine, that I think everyone is. But still, it’s a bit surprising. He’s only 2 years older than me. And sometimes I look at his phone and see the grindr app on there.. and not that I use grindr, but I’m afraid of ever going on it to see him use it. I wonder if his girlfriend knows.. I assume she does because of the dildo usage.
So yeah, I know it’s not too fair to be startled being gay myself, but still, it feels a little odd.
Then again, I know twins that are both gay. The idea of gay incest and stories I’ve read growing up have polluted my mind (though I would never partake and think it’s pretty gross).”
These siblings knew about each other’s orientation, and they wanted to help each other out…
