“So I’m demisexual (potentially ace…) and have been considering coming out to my parents. However, I’m not sure how to proceed because they are very conservative and religious. I’m worried my mom might assume that it means something completely different than what it does means without letting me explain. Yet, I can’t think of a better way to assure her that I’m not having sex with my boyfriend. Half of this problem arises from my mom distrusting me on the issue but never having a direct talk with me on it.
Any advice or insight would be appreciated. Thanks”
