the girl is 13 and thinks she knows everything about everything. she came over for a visit last night and we were watching tv. something about gays came on the tv. (i was in the kitchen so i don't know what it was.) she started going off about how gays should be banned and other stuff. again i wasstill out of the room.
now hubby had a sister who was gay (died in 2001) and i have an aunt who i just started talking to again. (i stopped talking to her after she kept butchering my hair every summer between the ages of 5 and 8)
how do i explain it has nothing to do with her the way other people want to live their lives?

Like everyone, "she'll live & learn". She is too old to learn compassion if she hasn't already been taught it. So she will have to go out into the big world with her swayed views & deal with the backlash eventually.
