*hugs* Oh, dear.
I'm so sorry, RedPepper, that your parents aren't being cool with this. What a bummer.
Maybe they'll come around. You're still you
, after all, and this revelation doesn't change who you are AT ALL. It just changes what they know about you. And they had to have some level of coolness in them to raise an awesome, wise, wonderful woman like you. So hang in there and maybe their inner cool will have a chance to surface.
Be strong, SisterWoman.
