Default Girl comes out to parents with help from a cake

Girl comes out (of the closet) to parents with help from a cake. Hey mom hey dad I'm gay! And also can't bake a cake worth a D*mn!






Girl comes out to parents with help from a cake | The Lookout - Yahoo! News


Quote:
Coming out to your parents isn't usually easy, but Tumblr user ellende-generes (real name: Laurel) did her best to make the conversation a piece of cake. Actually, make that a whole cake.


Fifteen-year-old Laurel posted a photo of a cake she made for her parents as a way of announcing that she is a lesbian. Loud and proud in bright green frosting, the cake reads, "I'm gay."

Accompanying the cake was a note:


good morning parents,

i'm gay. i've wanted to tell you for a long time. i thought doing it this way would be a piece of cake. i hope you still love me. i mean, it's hard not to love someone who baked you a cake.

all my friends know and still love me. your acceptance would be the icing on the cake.

i hope you, much like this cake, are not in tiers.

i hope we can look back on this and say "boy, this one really takes the cake."

it gets batter.

love, laurel (sorry for so many puns)

The coming-out cake did the job. Laurel posted an update saying, "My mom saw it and cried of happiness. We hugged and cried together. Then, we all ate the cake and talked. I am very luck to have such supporting parents and to have so much support from you guys. Thanks everyone! Have a gay day!"


Do you think that a 15 year old girl really knows what she is yet? And do you think this is a real story or just some more made up internet B.S.? Sorry but the more I'm online the more cynical I get.

Cynicism can and should be treated with cake. It was a lovely story.

Although her icing penmanship needs work, 8/10, would eat the cake.

It looks more like a tortilla.

The lettering isn't that good.
It looks more like she's announcing to her parents that she isn't Jewish.

I'm glad her parents were ok with it. What a cute story.
Yes by 15 I believe some people know what they are. If they are mature sexually in their mind at all they know who they like.

I knew I liked other boys as soon as I started growing hair in funny places and and my voice started oscillating between squeaking and going baritone. I also realized around that time that I wasn't quite as comfortable skinny dipping with my best friend at the pond anymore because I was a bit more conscious about the fact that his body was taking on a very appealing shape to me.

That all started around 13. By 14 I was well aware of who and what I was and by 15 I thought about what I wanted every 3 minutes just like any other guy. I am pretty sure if she went this far, she knows herself just as well.

I just wonder how many "gay" people are really bisexuals? Naturally now that I'm looking for it I can't find it but I remember reading something about "ship wives." Back in the old days many straight men would have homosexual relationships when they were out to sea for a long time with no women.
I am not saying that the girl will "grow out of it" but as she gets older perhaps she may find she likes boys more than she now thinks she does?

IP, my baby sis always knew she was gay.
Trouble is, the rest of the family didn't.
I had a clue when she told me as a young tot that she was going to marry Jill someday from Charlie's Angels.
As she grew into a teen, the boyfriend thing wasn't really there.
She dated some.. but it never led to anything.
Her prom date was her gay friend Paul lol
She eventually came out, and by then.. no one was really surprised.
Sure do miss her.

3 minutes? You were a little slow then. You wasted 2 minutes 30 seconds there.
