Being in the closet is hard enough for a repressed young lesbian, but during the Holidays, when you’re around not just your immediate family, but you’re extended family, it's a total fucking nightmare.

Being around family members, especially the ones who don’t know much about your life, can result in conversations that involve prying personal questions that for some reason, always seem to revolve around the fact that you’re uncharacteristically not boy crazy.

Here are 10 questions every closeted lesbian dreads during the holidays.
