I got an email from my ex, Rory today. She’s apparently doing a paper on Irish and American women, specifically their coming out stories and a comparison of how the two cultures respond. She asked all of her non-straight friends to add in some info about how they came out to their family. I don’t think I can help her because I really haven’t done that. This makes me wonder if I should feel guilty. I don’t know why. After all, there’s no law saying you HAVE to come out to your family, but it makes me feel like I’m being cowardly. That doesn’t change the fact that I will probably not be telling them anything about my sex life any time soon.
