Q: Hey, I was wondering if you ever sort of came out to your parents and what their response was if so. I understand you are probably older that me and no longer live near your parents but my mom found a text I sent a friend when I was younger about my asexuality and now brings it up occasionally to tell me how “disturbing” it is, just want some advice

I did come out to my parents.  I did it with an impersonal post on Facebook that they didn’t even notice at first…  They accepted it, but it’s not like I was telling something they hadn’t already figured out.  I never had a girlfriend in high school or college.  After college, there was a short lived, long-distance relationship, then no one.  I never talked about girls (or guys, for that matter).  Over the years, they just stopped asking when I was going to get a girlfriend, and basically just accepted that it wouldn’t happen.  So, when I came out, I was just putting a word on what they already knew.

For your particular situation, I don’t know if I would be the best to give advice.  These pages might help you:
