Someone said :
Just wondering did anyone ever notice their parents changing a bit since telling them you were gay, over Christmas I felt my Mom didn't really talk to me that much, felt she was a bit distant to me, neither of my parents have said anything about me coming out to them since I told them two weeks ago
The same happened to me when I came out many years ago.
My mother has never said the word "gay" to me and probably not to anyone else.
But she always made a point of telling me she loved me.
It took my dad about 5 years to say "gay".
Our relationship is great now.
There's no reason for them to mention homosexuality really than there is for them to mention heterosexuality or sex to their straight children.
