My teenage daughter has been in a relationship with another female for 4-5 months now. While I believe it may be a phase (she's had boyfriends in the past), I really have no issues if she is gay. However, her gf's mother is absolutely against it, and has made it known with very disparaging remarks. I love my dd unconditionally and will stand behind her no matter what. My dd's feelings are very hurt by the other mothers comments, and I've explained not all people will agree with her choice.
My question is...How would you react if your child told you they were gay?
To me you love who you love it doesn't bother me how ever my old asst manager is gay and her family is fine but her girlfriends mom says she made her gay and hates her and now disown her daughter till she gets her life back on track meaning dating men
One of my best friends (he passed away about a week ago) was gay.His mom was SSOOO against it that she refused to talk to him once he "came out"....And when he got so sick (he was dying) she refused to come see him and say good bye. Not all parents will love and support no matter what.
I will. I just want them to be happy.
Quoting Anonymous: I figured most parents would support their children no matter what, so I was VERY surprised by the mother's reaction. Shes totally pushed her child away, and made her feel like shit. I feel so bad for her.

I'm so sorry for your loss. That's terrible that his mother would do that, but you're right, I guess there are plenty of "conditional" parents out there. I pride myself on not being one of them.
