Thanks bssage.

Unfortunately quite a few people out here in the real world are putting in their two cents, and most of it is really quite mean and silly. Its frustrating, because if it were Dita's boyfriend, I dont think anywhere as many people who be having an issue with it.

Sadly that is still the world we live in. Many people still get stuck on the gender in a relationship instead of looking at the relationship for what it is. It has become much better, I remember just 14 years ago when I came out as pansexual and how hard that was, hopefully it keeps getting better. Even if it does not though, Dita can take comfort in knowing it does not matter to the people who matter most to her... Which I am sure will always mean the world to her. So ignore those people, keep following your heart and your instincts. I think overall doing that has worked well for you, look at who your children are to prove that! Nobody else really has the place to judge, you know your family best ^^

It actually does have some relevance.

Pansexuality is ability to feel attraction for all sexes, including transsexuals.

yes, it's sad that people feel the need to judge and interject their own biases. Why not wish people well even if you don't like or understand their view of life. I don't see what being negative ever got anyone.

I always try to just treat people as people, isn't that all anybody wants. Nobody goes out of their way to comment on a person's heterosexuality, why should they about any other preference?

Take heart that for everyone who feels the need to comment, there are as many or more who support you and her.

I think you are doing the right thing, and out of everything I am just really frustrated at her parents!! I mean, I get that she is the age of an adult, but it's like they are just abandoning their own child?! That's terrible. And to put her in the situation of worrying about graduating highschool and all that, how shameful. It's like they're perfectly content with dropping out of her life completely for FIVE YEARS now that she is the bare minimum age at which they no longer must be responsible for her. Ugh! They really are a self-centered couple of people, aren't they. :/

Nothing to be scared of, I assure you.
