I'm 16 years old and i think i am a lesbian. I've had boyfriends in the past but i've never been with a girl. The thing is that i think I'm in denial. I've kept trying to tell myself that I am not a lesbian. When i see a man i don't go "ohhh he's hot!" I go "Why do you think he's hot. you don't even know him." I don't get attracted to guys but i accept almost every date I'm asked on. I haven't told anybody. I have fantasies sometimes. I found out a few years ago that my uncle was gay and soon he had a boyfriend. My family was completely supportive of him, but i just can't imagine them supporting me at all.
The last time i came out to my parents about something (It was the fact that i wasn't a Christian like them) they laughed and said i was too young to even by thinking about a choice like that. They still tell people I am a Christian.
I guess that experience makes me think that they wouldn't support me. I don't know.
