Daughter Comes Out To Dad While Chatting With Him And People Love His Reaction

For the first time, we know that some 1.3 million kids, or roughly 8% of all high school students in America, report being lesbian, gay, or bisexual. But coming out to your friends and family members, especially when you’re at a vulnerable age, is never easy.

Luckily, some parents are more than happy to accept their kids’ sexuality as long as they obey “don’t date a jerk.” This is precisely what one anonymous dad said when he found out his daughter is a lesbian after she joined GSA. “You joined Girl Scouts Of America?” asked the dad and initiated the chat only to find out it refers to the “Gender-Sexuality Alliance” organization.

Coming out as a child, teenager, or young adult is one of the most nerve-wracking things you go through in your life. The fear of rejection sometimes becomes stronger with the urge to tell your friends and family about your sexuality. As a result, many LGBTQ kids find themselves alone and struggling with mental health at a very young age.

The 2020 national survey on LGBTQ youth’s mental health surveyed over 40,000 LGBTQ youth ages 13-24 across the United States. The results showed that a staggering 68% of LGBTQ youth had symptoms of anxiety disorder in the past two weeks.

But there was a twist in the story

The survey also revealed the close link between LGBTQ identity and suicide, since 40% of LGBTQ respondents said they’d seriously considered attempting suicide in the past twelve months. Simultaneously, more than half of transgender and nonbinary youth have seriously considered suicide.

The findings revealed the scope of the public health crisis where suicide has been “consistently the second leading cause of death among young people, and continues to disproportionately impact LGBTQ youth.”

Showing support for LGBTQ youth is crucial and makes a huge impact on a person in a mental crisis. Please see The Trevor Lifeline for youth in need of immediate support, which can be life-saving.
