My parents were the exact same way, oblivious as hell. My aunt introduced me to Janet at age 5 with Rhythm Nation and I would put that cd on and dance around the house all day…AT 5. I grew up a Britney stan and had her all over my walls. When I finally came out to them at 19, post high school, it was “huh how are you gay, you loved Britney!” And I’m like uh yeah, I wanted to be like her, not sleep with her. The stupidity of it all.
