While we were in the car coming home from Universal Studios with Linda and her son, my mom said something that left me furious. I was sweating and wanting so badly to correct her, but held my tongue.
Linda's son was in the backseat with Linda. I was doing the driving and my mom was seating next to me in the front seat.
My mom and Linda were talking about various friends they both have in common. One woman came up in the conversation, and here's what my mom said that made me cringe:
"I still can't believe Christina is a lesbian. This woman should not be where she is based on the lifestyle that she has chosen. She is in a position that she can play with and influence other peoples minds. It is just wrong."
The conversation went on, and just made my blood boil even more, I was sweating, and wanted to cry, but bit my tongue.
At the end of this diatribe my mom apologized, and said: "I'm sorry if I offended anyone, this is just how I feel."
All I could think about was "you did not just say that." Do you realize lesbian and gay are the same thing?!?! After what I've been through the past month you have the nerve to say this?!?! Only reason I didn't is because I wasn't going to come out to Linda and her son.
