Yeah, you are lucky your mom feels that way. I've had my problems with my family in the past as well - long, long story there - but at least we tried to discuss it without getting heated. I did tell them "nothing you say or do will make me love you any less," and both my mom and sister agreed with that.
My pleasure Brandi! =) I'm getting the same crap from my family. I came out as an atheist to them a couple of weeks ago, during a birthday get-together, and my mom said "well, one of us is going to be wrong, and I hope it's not you." Kind of arrogant, I think.
Still new at it though, even after a year, and still trying to figure out where I am. But it's a start.
Anyway, hope we can chat soon and hope you have a great weekend!!
