I think I'm lesbian, but I'm sure. How can I tell if I am, and how do I tell my homophobic mother?
Honestly, there isn't one specific way to figure out if you lesbian, but an easy way to have a little idea if you are lesbian, is to first think of if you've ever been attracted to any women and whether you've ever been attracted to any boys. If you haven't ever been attracted to boys and have been attracted to girls then you might be lesbian. If you have been attracted to both you may be bisexual or Pansexual etc, and if you have only been attracted to boys you may just be straight. As for telling your homophobic mother, you don't have to tell her but if you want to I suggest doing it either in person or through a note. No matter what she says she will always love you. If she doesn't accept you there is always the option of telling your dad, grandparents, friends or If you need someone on this team. I suggest if you know she won't react well the it may be easier and better to tell her when you are moved out so she can't kick you out of the house. If you need anything else please feel free to message back.
