Transcript Another story has it that after mother was told, she spent three days in the bathtub, crying. Another mother ran away to visit her own college roommate whom she had not seen for 20 years. And yet another immediately called her psychiatrist only to be told that she too had such leanings. Few parents take the news philosophically, but one local lesbian had such luck with her mother that it has inspired many another to tell all. This brave lady had anguished over her revelation for months. She had gnashed her teeth and smoked too much. Finally she went home for the confrontation. It was now or never. She had five days at home and she used every one of them to work up to it. Finally her last day came. She sat at the kitchen table while her mother was fixing dinner. She couldn't form the words. She looked at the clock and promised herself that by the time the clock hit 6:30 pm she would have spoken it. The clock ticked and her mother talked. At 6:29 her mother said: "Which would you prefer, cauliflower or broccoli?" It was 6:30 and daughter said, "Mother, I'm a lesbian." Dinner was late that evening but mother and daughter had a closer relationship after that. I once knew a college professor who was gay but who wanted to remove this secret from her relationship with her mother. Her technique was to send her mother articles clipped from magazines and behavioral science journals. Anonymously. She figured that once her mother became familiar with the literature, she could then just discuss her own lifestyle with ease. Months went by, as did many unsigned messages. Finally she went home for a holiday only to find a very distraught mother. The elderly woman finally confided in her daughter that she had been receiving the most incredible obscene material in the mail, but that postal inspectors were now tracing them to their source. My friend stopped sending the enlightening literature. Jo (PBT welcomes vignettes about this subject. How did YOUR mother find out?)
