    my younger sister is coming out

    I’m a young adult and I came out just about the same age my sister is but I hate to admit I feel like I don’t want her to come out too. Is that bad? I mean I guess there’s a bit of pride I give myself for being “different” than the rest of my family. I love my sister but he sometimes a little spotlight is nice. I’ve told her to wait a little longer to make sure she knows how she really feels before she decides to tell our mom and dad.

    I guess this forum is supposed to be a place for honesty and so on, but jesus, that’s selfish of you

    Well yea I admit I feel guilty about it but at the same time I feel like I’m trying to protect her from all the baggage that comes with being a young women coming out. I’m torn with all of it 😥

    I definitely understand your concern regarding your sister. I had a friend in high school who came out. She got picked on quite a lot, and lost a lot of friends due to it. For some reason people seemed to think that hanging out with her was awkward. It’s really quite unfortunate.

    I’d say the best thing you can do is offer your advice. Whether or not she’s hetero or homosexual is out of your control, but you can at least talk to her about the social strife that comes with coming out of the closet – especially at young ages when it may be more difficult to avoid it.

    I actually came out to my mom last year which surprised me because the reaction she gave was the complete opposite to what I had in mind. I also have a little sister as well and if she defines herself differently when she gets older then it would be up to her to decide to tell or not, since she’s her own person. Personally, ask your sister who she wants to tell first and if she feels like it’s something she has to do.
