ON TRYING TO COME OUT TO MY MOM, PART 2

  1. I did it!
  2. It went well!
  3. She reacted exactly as I expected.
  4. She was worried I hadn't mentioned it because I thought she'd react badly but that wasn't the case.
  5. She told me she wants me to be living how I want and if anyone doesn't agree, they're assholes.
  6. She also said that if I found someone I want to be with, that's a beautiful thing regardless of gender.
  7. "I didn't live in San Francisco in the 80s without experiencing some things, you know I was never going to be judgmental."
  8. "Whatever you do or however you live, I'm always going to love you so much."
  9. "Well, I would maybe draw the line at axe murdering."
  10. "But not necessarily. You'd probably have a good reason if you did that."
