Q.: OK. So I have a girlfriend and she's black. We've been dating for 8 months and she wants to meet my parents but there's a problem. My parents aren't exactly "cool" with black people. I haven't told my girlfriend because I'm afraid of what that would do to the relationship. WwwWhat do I do?

POLL: W-w-w-What should he do?
4% (64) Don't mention it. Maybe they won't notice.
8% (131) Don't bring her home to meet the parents. Why subject her to that?
67% (994) Bring her home and proudly introduce your girlfriend to your parents. This is a *perfect* time for them to join the rest of us in the 21st century.
19% (283) Try this: "Mom, I'm gay. Just kidding. Say, there's someone I'd like you to meet..."
