My Gay Mother
So here I am *trying* to have a conversation with this
woman I call mother, and all she can talk about is gay,
this and gay that. Well woopie for you mom. I don't care
that she's a lesbian now, and that she has a girlfriend.
WHATEVER. I don't care it makes her happy. But can't we at
least have one goddamn conversation about anything without
her talking about "dyke this or butch that"
MOTHER THE COMING OUT PARTY IS OVER ITS BEEN THREE YEARS!
Its not easy to not lose my temper with her, she cheated on
my dad, and treated him like cr*p their whole marriage
(25yrs) because she was gay and didn't know it yet. LIKE IT
WAS HIS FAULT OR SOMETHING! And now here I am subjected to
her rambling about this gay bar and how this woman came on
to her...I mean I think its great she is living her life
the way she wants, BUT I AM HER DAUGHTER, not her best
friend. I wouldn't care if it was men she was running
around with. I don't want to hear about it! I mean anybody
picture your parents having sexual feelings. Gross right? I
mean how would you feel if you asked your mom about the
hair salon you both used to go to and she says "I really
can't afford them anymore, I am going to this new place
downtown, where this cute lil dyke cuts my hair." Can't we
just have a normal conversation without you telling me how
gay you are. SH*T. Give me a break! I feel like telling
her, LISTEN WOMAN, YOU WERE MY MOTHER BEFORE YOU DECIDED
YOU WERE GAY! She may have always felt gay or whatever I
don't care. I want my mom to start acting like a mom. My
whole life has been pretty f*cking screwy because my
parents spent my childhood being my friend when what I
really needed was a good kick in the a$$ to get my life
together. A little late for that now.
OK...I am done venting now.
