This woman’s excellent tweet about coming out proves that mothers are always right

When one woman came out, it confirmed all of our suspicions that mothers are always right…

In a huge plot twist, 20-year-old Jareliz Diaz from Connecticut took a four-year break to come out as gay, after denying to her mother that she was a lesbian.

It turned out that her mother knew her daughter was gay all along.

This is how it went down.

“It’s like I can’t think women are pretty”

Back in 2013, Diaz tweeted that her mother had asked if she was a lesbian because she had appreciated the female form.

She wrote: “My mom just asked me if I’m a lesbian -.- wtf noooo !!! It’s like I can’t think women are pretty.”

Four years later…

Much to the surprise of her followers, four years later, Diaz replied to her own tweet, explaining that her mother had been right all along.

She said, simply: “Update: I am a lesbian. She was right.”

Her take on sexual orientation?

“You love who you love, for what’s within,” said Diaz.

Now happily out – although she says she does not like to label herself too much – Diaz is pleased that her tweet was relatable.

She also said she hasn’t told her mother about the tweet going viral, but that she’d find it pretty funny.

But most importantly, is this the proof we needed that mothers are always right?

The outcome was more than positive

She has since had over 30,000 retweets and over 51,000 likes – as well as hundreds of responses…

One user wrote: “4 years for the punchline… that’s dedication right there.”

Another added: “Welp lol. Congrats on coming out. Hope you find happiness and acceptance wherever you are in the world.”

“This is relatable content,” another joked.
