My question is...How would you react if your child told you they were gay?
by Des10ed2bOctober 6, 2012 at 9:33 AM
i would just say, "okay, awesome. thanks for letting me know. are you just wanting to tell me or is there a girl friend i get to meet!?" i would be just as excited to meet a new girl friend as i would a new boy friend. i would also make sure that there was no bullying going on in school or anything. i have been a big gay rights supporter since high school, so it really wouldnt phase me too much.
by Baby_G_24October 6, 2012 at 9:48 AMI can't believe this is still an issue for people & I've never understood why who people choose to be bothers anybody else..? Sorry that your daughter & her gf have to deal with her mom being that way. That can't be easy. Hopefully she'll learn to accept it.

I have plenty of friends who thought they were gay but came to realize it is just society pushing a pagan non natural way of life.
"they will hate you because they first hated me". Mmmmm who said that? [/quot
Plenty of friends? I somehow highly doubt that. It's very unusual for someone to wake up one day and no longer be gay. Society doesn't push homosexuality, its quite the opposite.

oh my goodness she was sure of it so young! I have an 11 yr old son and I want to be prepared for if/when he tells me, I didn't realize they knew so young my cousin didn't come out to the family until she was 19. Thank you for your help.

my mother is gay. i've had girlfriends. and i'm a witch. do you want to start bashing pagans now? just so you know the christians have killed innocent people for thousands of yrs for a religion that includes aspects taken from paganism.

I would be perfectly fine with it. Her dad and I have actually discussed this and we both would love it if she were, that way we wouldn't have to deal with any bone head boys. LOL! I am bisexual myself.

I don't know lol. I'm sure I'd be shocked at first.
by LCG83October 6, 2012 at 12:46 PMI would be just as excited and nervous if he brought home a boy as I would if he brought home a girl. Lol.
October 6, 2012 at 1:03 PMas long as my kid is happy and treated right by who ever they want to be with then yes i would be happy and jumping for joy.and its people like you who shouldnt have kids if you cant accept them for who they are
Did I say anything is wrong with being gay. I dont care if you happy your kid is gay I will not be jumping for joy or throwing a party.
well it doesnt matter what YOU want it should only matter what THEY want and there is NOTHING wrong with being gay
No but I don't think it will hurt. I did have the pastor pray over them when they were born. And that was one of my prayers. To each they own but I dont want my kids to be gay.
Pray the gay away? Do you really think it works that way?
I would be disappointed and try to pray the gay away
