He totally blew me off. LIKE ALWAYS. Well I guess I would rather that than what he said when I came out as bi.

I am sorry.  It hurts when our families don't accept us.  Hang in there.

Is it possible that he brushed it off because he doesn't judge you on your sexuality? Maybe he just accepts you for who you are.

I'm very sorry. I can't relate personally but I have many LGBT friends and have seen how hard this stuff is for them. I hope that you and your dad are able to really talk about it sometime.

I am sorry.

 

He may come around to realise, and maybe accept, further down the road.

 

My mother kind of put up "it was a phase" blinders after I came out about my sexuality to her in my teens.  Blew my off like it wasn't a big deal (though I suspect she's generally a lot more validating of a person than your father, perhaps,) and seemed to forget about it while I went on my merry way.

 

I re-came out to her again little over a year ago.  Put a few things into context for her ("remember that one friend of mine?...")  She doesn't brush it off, doesn't presume I'm only into (opposite gender,) etc.

 

So I hope he comes around one day soon for you.

My mom said "Well, I suppose that is a phase that one goes through, that is common in women who have been disappointed by men". (I'm divorced.) We've never talked about it again. She still loves me, I just don't think she believes me. Maybe they just don't want to hear it?

Yeah a lot of times I think it's just. Easier for people to ignore/assume/brush off than to confront and change their preconceived notions (eg: the incorrect assuption that lesbian/bisexual/pansexual women are only that way because of being wronged by men, or not having met the right man, etc.)

And so under the rug it goes until it's kinda right in front of their face. When I came out as trans, mom asked about my sexuality again, so I re-came out to her, and pointed out two (obvious in hindsight) of my ex-girlfriends she had met frequently.

      i have hated my dad for as long as i can remember. i hate him for many reasons. he has been verbally abusive towards me for my entire life, in the past he has denied that i have any mental illnesses, but now he does believe in them. however, he thinks i am the reason i have mental illnesses. i feel that i can not speak freely when i am around him. i have begun to have violent thoughts whenever i think about him.

      I've never fully understood my own sexuality. It just seems so complex and confusing and I'd like it to be easy and simple.
      When I was in love with a girl, nothing else matched up. And nothing has since. No guy I've dated has ever made me feel a fraction of what she did. And I've had a few strong crushes on women since. But I've mostly dated men.
      some people who dislike me tell me that I'm making it up for attention, for guys to like me more, that I'm not bisexual at all. Is it possible that that could be true? Was my love a fluke?
      i just don't know. Sorry if this post sounds stupid: I know you can't tell me what my sexuality is. But I wanted to get my confusion out somewhere. 
      How do I figure myself out? Has anyone gone through anything like this?

      Has anyone seen this documentary on being of the LGBT community in the south especially Mississippi?

      http://www.sho.com/sho/reality-docs/titles/3403140/L-Word-Mississippi-Hate-The-Sin

      This show breaks my heart.. And also give these people a lot of applause for being able to stand up and speak for equality of LGBT members. These people have much courage in my opinion.

      I thought i should share it because not many people have spoken about it.

      Gonna leave the link to see the documentary in a post under this post. If i am not allow to post it then that is why i put it in another post if a mod needs to delete it.
