.... and how would you react, if you learnt that your son or daughter is a homosexual???

would you freak out?? would you be able to take that in your stride??

you know its one thing to sit from a distance and watch the entire "gay rights" and its anti-thesis "anti homosesuality" factions fight it out, but things change dramatically once you are forced to run in those shoes.

for example would you be lookign forward to having a SON in law for your SON ... or a daughter in law for your daughter??

Come step inside my tears

    Honestly, I would give him my full support.
    As a mom I'd probably worry slightly about what's ahead for him, but I certainly would not want to become part of the problem.
    ... and the will to show I will always be better than before.

    i have two wee girls... i would be quite pleased actually as being a man myself, i know how shit we can be and i dont want them hurt or taken advantage of, etc, etc

    my only real disappointment would be if they had no kids... i wanna be a grampa :)

    I've got a pre-teen daughter and it would be her choice - I wouldn't mind at all as long as she is happy. Personally, I think that by the time she is an adult there won't be that much 'stigma' attached to being gay. Live and let live!

    Well said, I would worry and I would be slightly disappointed about the no grandkids things but technology these days, eh? :D

    But I can't imagine if I had kids that they could possibly do or say anything that would make me love them less and any parent who COULD desert or abandon their child for any reason doesn't deserve to be a parent.

    I have a ten year old daughter and it would not bother me at all if she were gay ..... what I will say is that the thought of my baby having sex bothers me more than worrying about which gender she's in bed (or whereever) with..........

    In regards to not being a grandparent Dunk there are many ways gay couples can have children so by time our girls are grown they could have babies if they really wanted to......

    very true :)

    i just dont want them to have sex is pretty much my stance :)

    i know they will, but i just hope its with some accountant weakling geeks so that if he does something nasty to my girls i can 'unleash some wrath' :o

    :D All dads are the same! :D When my daughter brought home a little 'love note' when she was six, my husband was already asking "who is he?" "is he in your class?", etc. I can only imagine what it will be when she brings 'friends' around as a teen!!

    Dunk I don't know about you but I've raised my daughter to take no shit from anyone ..... She is a beautiful well mannered child but the moment anyone crosses her the fiery character that matches her hair kicks in ..... I feel comfortable in knowing that she's been doing kick boxing for a few years also so if she keeps with that I'd laugh in the face of anyone who tried to hurt her when she's older ........

    Then of course they'd have to deal with me ....
    I agree with you I don't really like the idea of her having sex at all !! Her father blanks those issues out of his mind like it's something that will never happen ......

    We as parents can only teach our children a certain amount the world unfortunately has to teach them the rest !! I'm glad my child doesn't grow up in the context I did !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Doesn't seem like it! Does it bother you? Have you just found out that your child is homosexual?

    nope!! might be hard to get my head around the idea but whatever makes them happy... rather they were happy than stuck with a guy for the sake of it... and for social conventions and all.. fuck that, if anything i'd rather they rebelled against social conventions anyway...

    er... i am not becomming a parent anytime soon.

    i was just wondering how parents cope/would cope, if there was a case of homosexuality in their family.

    As Dunk mentioned, would you be trying to deal with this with your parents?

    EDIT: Post below answers this.

    No wouldn't bother me at all .......... as long as that person was good to my daughter I'd have no need for concern.

    I wouldn't have a problem with it, if that is what my son/daugther really wanted. No point in alienating him/her from me by being all judgemental. So I'd probably be in the "in stride" category.

    I really have nothing aginst homosexuals, and although it might be unusual to have a same-sex son-in-law, it wouldn't freak me out, nor cause me any pain in any way.

    So I'd say I wouldnt have a problem with it. Really truly.

    Peace

    It would take a little while to get used to but if I was disappointed there is no way I'd let my child know that. I know how it feels to have a parent go against you and it's not nice and I'd highly advise against it. As long as my kid is happy, well then it's me and MY prejudices that will have to change and I'll have to keep showing my kid how much I love them and how they make me proud all the time.

  • To be completely honest I would have a hard time dealing with it, but I certainly wouldn't be throwing any future children out of the house if it happens. I like the idea of giving a future daughter away to a guy that will look after her.
    The wind is blowing cold
    Have we lost our way tonight?
    Have we lost our hope to sorrow?

    Feels like were all alone
    Running further from what’s right
    And there are no more heroes to follow

    So what are we becoming?
    Where did we go wrong?

    I know a person working with homeless people in san francisco and he told me that a lot of them are young people sent out from their homes because theiir family discovered that they are homosexual... unbelievable...
