This morning my 11 year old cousin told me she is a lesbian. I just told her “that’s ok. Just be you and everything is going to be ok”. She liked my answer, beamed and changed the topic. I didn’t ask more questions, she didn’t add a thing, so we just went on as if nothing had happened. She didn’t say that this was a secret, but just to be on the safe side I know this is not something I would share with our family. We are a more-Catholic-than-the-Pope family, and already she has problems with her mom who wants her to act like a lady and quit her tomboy ways. If this gets out I can see psychologists, general freaking out and dissappointment all around…plus its not really my story to tell. I am worryed about the future. I also wonder if she told me this so I would do something…like what? I have no idea. Is she going to go through puberty and change her mind? What do I do, say?
