    I was helping my youngest daughter sort through her university offers and I noticed that she put her sexuality on the form as "Bisexual". Awesome that she can be so chilled about it to put it on the application. I am so proud of her.

    That's awesome!
    I'm also on my way to uni and still have to figure out how open I'm going to be... Your daughter is very lucky to be in such a comfortable environment :)

    Going to uni is a great opportunity to reinvent yourself. You will meet loads of new people and make loads of new friends. You can be a new you with them if that is what you want. I found it a great opportunity.

    I'm so touched to know you are so accepting of your daughter. It might seem like a small or "mandatory" thing, but a lot of parents fail to do so. I'm prooud of her too!

    Well as I'm bi myself she obviously doesn't have to worry about my attitude. I was pleased that she had found a word for herself that she was happy with. From my perspective I would have described her as pan since the gender of her romantic interests seems to be truly irrelevant to her. That said now she has indicated her preferred description, I will obviously use it!

    Applications to Uni ask for you sexuality now? Is that a British thing?

    On this side of the pond, you have to work it into your personal essay if you want them to know.

    It's part of the "diversity data" that they collect but isn't technically part of the application. They use it to monitor how many applications they get from ethnic minorities, LGBT, disabled and other minority applicants.
