I feel so grateful that I did not have, nor do I presently, have these experiences with my family. I am sorry for png and Tdogg that your own siblings treat you in this way. My family always embraced my partners with open arms, and I have no reason to think that next time will be the same. They have their struggles at times, for sure, with my being a lesbian, whether it is shattered dreams of marriage (although two out of three of my siblings are divorced), worry, shame- or a combination of all three. But, they treat me and mine with respect always, and their adore my daughter, their granddaughter. My siblings are just the best where my being lesbian is concerned, openly talking about it in their own families and communities, and advocating on my behalf. It is awesome!!!!!
