Reasons Why I Love My Parents (an incomplete list)

So, Family Weekend begins, which means lots of parents descending upon their children's space, and many of said children thus revamping their space to hide elements of which their parents will disapprove. I forget sometimes that not everyone is as open with their parents as i am, that not everyone can be. Not that everyone necessarily should share everything with their parents, but i am so glad that i don't feel i need to hide anything from my parents.

They know that i'm queer, that i slash anything that moves, that i read&write often kinky fanfic pr0n, and none of this bothers them. They tell me about gay stuff. (I know this bothers some people, because they don't like the idea that their lives revolve around Teh Gay, but i really like Teh Gay, so it makes me happy.) They encourage me to do what makes me happy and to form my own decisions and opinions about things even when i disagree with them. They think i should be free to do as i please so long as i'm not hurting anyone, and their prime concern in terms of my life is that i'm happy. They know that i love them even though i don't miss them when i'm at school and i can't wait to move out of their house permanently.

So yeah, a big thank you to the parental units.
