My parents don't let me wear anything that supports LGBT or gays. I'm bisexual, and I live in a highly religious christian family who practicly pulls up religion in almost every conversation they talk about. I really don't like it cause when I go to talk to them they bring up religion, I'm not very religious. Infact, I'm not religious at all. Anyways, back to fasion. Since my parents are homo.phobes they wount let me wear anything that supports my sexuality. I find a way to anyways. XD

My parents wont let me wear anything that supports the LGBT comunity even though I'm part of it. I'm bisexual and I want to show it off. Cause people are so judgmental. My parents wont let me cause they are religious christians and I'm not religious.

My parents will not let me wear anything that shows any sort of stomach. Additionally, I can't wear mini skirts without leggings or tights.

Well, most of the time I wear a lot of edgy black clothes, but I'll have weird days where I'll wear bright colors. My parents don't really care what I wear, suprisingly. They just won't let me look like a hoo.ker or satanist, basically. How about discussing clothing with your parents, asking why they don't like your clothing, but also explain why you like it and want to wear it?

I agree with your parents. I have my own strict modesty code, so my parents don't need  to restrict me anyway. I feel wierd wearing things that aren't modest.

Clover:
 
I can see why they wouldn't allow you to wear clothes that promotes your orientation. Nonetheless, I don't think that should dissuade you from being you. I can relate to what you're describing. I'm not "open" as perhaps you are. I get a feeling that your parents know you are bise.xual. Which if they know, because you are open about it, it just one step away from them accepting it sooner or later. Any ways, back to fashion. It's also great that you display who you are with what you wear. Because ultimately, that's what clothes are for.

My Dad hates me wearing anything that associates me with a group that he may find derogatory... Like I can't wear camo because of the army or neff because of skater kids, and sometimes they won't even let me wear tye-dye because it's too hippi-ish. I can't wear heels unless my parents approve them for the event and my Mom generally hates me wearing form-fitting dresses. It doesn't make any sense to me, and honestly, everything my parents tell me not to do makes me want to do it more. I get you, Mckay...it totally sucks.

That sucks! The worst thing a parent can do is not accept their kids for who they are. I'm glad you can find a way around it but what can they do to make you not wear it? Ground you? I mean, my parents say that I can't do something, but if I do it for long enough and it's not inappropriate, I eventually get my way. Idk if this is rude at all so I am absolutely sorry in advance, but I have several friends who are bi and I think it's really neat...it's like they've got this whole broader perspective on the world and they can see things in both boys and girls that I never will. Sorry your parents don't agree with who you are :/ I hope they'll change their minds

I just started a new school, and I have to say their dress code is too strict: no leggings without shorts or a skirt to cover your butt (even athletic leggings), no large jewelry, no bright-colored makeup, and your only allowed to have two facial piercings and they have to be small. It just keeps students from expressing themselves the way they want! Also, it makes it difficult for me to wear leggings to school because I have to wear a skirt or shorts over them and then take my shorts or skirt off for my aerobic dance class, and I'm not sure if I'd be breaking the rules by taking my skirt or shorts off for my aerobic dance class.
