If you discovered your child was gay or bisexual, how would you react?
Some of you may have never thought about this, but now's the time.
If you're a strong Christian and you think it is just wrong and against
God's will to be gay, don't discriminate your child, don't make them feel
like a freak, even if you think that. It could only lead to drug use or running
away, or worse, suicide. Unless you're some sick inhumane parent,
you wouldn't want your child to think that you hated them or were disgusted
by their choices. I say it's their choice, be who you want to be, It's not effecting
you. More and more homosexual kids are getting made fun of by other kids
and feeling ashamed and wanting to end it all. Do you want that? Do you want
your child to feel like less of a person just because of someone their attracted
to? You can't help who you fall in love with. You can't, love is love no matter
what gender, that's what i believe. Just accept and love and care for them,
treat them like you would if they were the way you wanted them to be.
Don't make them go through it alone either. Stand by them, make sure to
tell them "Honey, I'm proud of you. No matter what you do, I'll always love you"
That's just my thoughts. I heard about all these kids killing themselves.
My boy, Brynnen, discovered he was gay in 6th grade, when he was in the boys
locker room he came after school and said "Mom, what do you think about gay
people?"i have a gay friend named Brian who was my friend in high school and he
was one of my best friends. We still get together sometimes. so i said "Well, I'm
not gay but i don't have a problem with gay people, why love?" and he told me
"Mom...today in the boys locker room i got a boner looking at one of the guys
undress...and i feel weird when I'm next to this boy in my class, Alex..like tingly
and all i want to do when i see him is kiss him and be with him...Mom, i think I'm gay"
I never thought about what would happen if my son turned gay. But right then,
I didn't mind. i told him "If you're gay, that's fine with me. You love who you want to"
I don't want to start a mom feud or anything. Everyone has their opinions.
Now, after my big ramble, moms, what's your opinion? what would you do if
you straight child turned gay, or how do you treat your gay child? :]
