I have a neighbor, we have been neighbors for over 25 years, great family and people, their kids grew up playing with mine. Just recently the mom asked me out to lunch to speak about one of her sons coming out as gay, he lives in another state. The conversation was her asking me how I deal with my gay daughter.
She has kept this from close friends, not wanting to deal with the gossip, she feels shame as a parent for having a gay son, thinking what others will say, never once taking into consideration her son's life.
Where is the shame in having a gay child, when that in itself does not interfere with who they trully are as a person? Instead of looking out for yourself why not be open and be receptive to your own flesh and blood?
Regardless of religious views on the matter, how can and openly gay daughter/son be any reflection on you?
All we can do as parents is give them a good foundation to build on, rest, up to them.
