Me: Are you interested in anyone at school?
She looks horrified….
Me: It’s OK if you are…I mean it’s natural..
Daughter: Are you REALLY having this conversation with me?
Me: All I’m trying to say is…you’re 16 soon….it’s to be expected that you might be taking more interest in the opposite sex or the same..
Daughter: What do you mean…the same?
Me: I mean…it’s OK to be whatever you are…straight or gay or inbetween…
Her mouth is a huge black hole…..
Me: I love you…no matter what…
Daughter: I’m not a lesbian mum
Me: It’s OK if you are..
Daughter: Mother, I am not a lesbian..
Me: I’m just saying.…
Daughter: Are you trying to push me into lesbianism mother…
Me: Of course not….
Daughter: I swear if you make me a rainbow coloured birthday cake for my 16th I will shoot you..
