I live in Atlanta and where I am there are A LOT of gays, bisexuals, trannies, and lesbians. Ironically though my children have never really seen and any intimate interaction between a couple that would indicate they have a sexual interest in each other. To my kids the gays, and such are just friends hanging out like on Sesame Street, lol! Im sure it's because everyone is so nice and NON judgemental that my kids accept them just the way they way they are. I love that my kids are this way, so my husband and I embrace it. I know that not everyone feels the same.
If your child(ren) have had any experience with gay/bisexual couples, what was it like? How did you explain the situation?Answer Question

We have 3 lesbian couples in our homeschooling group. On the way to our first meeting I told the kids some of the children have 2 moms instead of a mom and dad. Honestly they understood that a lot easier than they did when a friend's parents divorced and explaining the concept of the neighbor girl having only a mom at home. My children were 8,4, and 1 when we started going to our group. I am sure someday they will have more questions but it's not like these families they have meet do PDA's.
