My mom is dating my girlfriends father
This is because of the way he raised me after my mom passed, and also because he was always open-minded about any issue I brought to him.
When my friends started having sex in middle school and I wanted to know if that was wrong, he told me there was no right answer, and taught me that it wasn't okay to shame my friends or call them slurs just because they were experimenting sexually earlier than I was.
When I came out as gay, my dad took the time to talk to several gay and bisexual women about the nuances of the issue, like whether or not I should be allowed to have girlfriends over, and how we could discuss safe sex and consent in terms of same-sex relationships.
My dad and I squeezed into our cramped, apartment-style bathroom with all the supplies.
I wore a short pair of shorts to save myself some embarrassment.
Although my dad shaved his face and his head–rather than his legs and armpits–he was skilled at using a razor, and he explained in detail how I could use it successfully.
At first glance, Medellin women do not perceive me as a foreigner due to the way I look.
So I do not have that instant “gringo effect” on them.
