I have an elderly and sick mother who lives with me in my home. Now I'm not out to her, but I think my sister but the bug in her ear that I may be "queer", and now, like never before, she lets the homophobic, "tootie fruiti" slurs slip. I once defended LGBT rights to her in a public confrontation, and that may have been my mistake because since that incident, she has looked at me differently.
Lately her condescending attitude towards me is getting to be too much. She has just a few months at most left to live, but her comments hurt beyond belief. I am torn between just ignoring them or comming clean to her then packing her off to a home for her remaining days. Any suggestions?
