 What influence do you think a parent/s have on their child's sexuality?

Why do you think it?

     Actually, for this I meant sexuality, but we can discuss gender as well :-)

    Quoting EireLass:

    For this question, you mean the child's gender? (thinking that because of all the recent posts...and the difference that keeps getting pointed out between sexuality and gender).

    Moms here on CM like to claim spanking your child turns them into sexual deviants.

    I regularly spanked both of mine so they'll grow up have a colorful and exciting time with their partners.

    Oh, ok. Well, my influence on my kids taught them to be very comfortable with their sexuality, and share that comfort with their partners.

    If they're doing even a half decent job, they should have ZERO influence over their child's sexuality.  

    If they're influencing it in any way, they're failing big time.  Other than working to repress their kid's sexuality, I can't imagine what other influence they coul have.

    I am not fully sure short of them condeming and causing the person distress over who they are. My parents had no influence on my sexuality.

    Why would a parent, who loves their child, and wants them to grow up healthy, well adjusted, 'normal', work to repress something that's totally normal and natural? It's going to happen whether the parent likes it or not, why wouldn't you do all you can to teach your child that it's a wonderful thing?

    Aside from warping a child through sexual abuse, pretty much none.

    I think the only influence parents can be is a person being open to who they feel they are vs a person not being comfortable b/c they were taught who they are is wrong/ugly so they hide/deny it.

    My first son is openly heterosexual. My second son is too young to express his sexuality so I can't assume anything. I don't believe I've contributed anything to their sexuality other than helping them to understand it. As far as their gender is concerned, I was only able to contribute the x chromosome so not even their gender was up to me.
    I'm way more concerned with both of them finding a person they love and who loves them back, the gender is unimportant to me.
