My teenage daughter has been in a relationship with another female for 4-5 months now. While I believe it may be a phase (she's had boyfriends in the past), I really have no issues if she is gay. However, her gf's mother is absolutely against it, and has made it known with very disparaging remarks. I love my dd unconditionally and will stand behind her no matter what. My dd's feelings are very hurt by the other mothers comments, and I've explained not all people will agree with her choice.

My question is...How would you react if your child told you they were gay?

Try to be there not only for your dd but for her girlfriend, since the other mom is abdicating her responsibility, or at least is very misguided.

I told her to tell her mom at least she doesn't have to worry about her getting I kid, I just dont think its a big enough deal to alienate your child.

 One of my best friends (he passed away about a week ago) was gay.His mom was SSOOO against it that she refused to talk to him once he "came out"....And when he got so sick (he was dying) she refused to come see him and say good bye. Not all parents will love and support no matter what.

 I will. I just want them to be happy.

Quoting Anonymous:

I figured most parents would support their children no matter what,
so I was VERY surprised by the mother's reaction. Shes totally pushed her child away, and made her feel like shit. I feel so bad for her.

I'm so sorry for your loss. That's terrible that his mother would do that, but you're right, I guess there are plenty of "conditional" parents out there. I pride myself on not being one of them.

I wouldn't care as long as my son is happy and safe. My stepbrother is gay and so is my best male friend and my best female friend is no issues for me. They are just people who love!

I would support her.

I can't say that I wouldn't worry though, she'd have a hard road ahead of her
