Dear Straight Talk: Now that gay marriage is legal again in California, our mom is marrying her fiance in August. They are planning a formal church wedding announced in the newspaper and we are moving into her fiance’s house. Our friends don’t know our mom is gay and we don’t think we can handle the humiliation and embarrassment!
Our mom says most people accept gay couples and we should feel lucky to move into a nicer house with our own bedrooms. We love our mom and her fiance is good to us, but we would rather stay where we are than have everybody tease and humiliate us. There’s a girl at school whose mom married her partner and kids tease her. We’ll be embarrassed to have friends over and sleepovers will be impossible. I’m heading to college in a year, but my sister is only 14 and has to live with this much longer. Please help! — Embarrassed daughter
