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?

Give her a coming out party and support and encourage her to follow her heart.

that's what I don't understand. its your kid, they can't help what they feel and every child is curious. kwim? could you support your dd and her gf together to combat the gfs mothers nastyness?

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'd say "Okie dokie." I don't care about my child's orientation. I only want her to be happy.

I don't care who she grows up to love, as long as she's an honest, respectful, and loving person that's all that matters. 

but if I were you, I'd reach out to your daughter's gf, it takes a real mother to love their child through ANYTHING and it's unfortunate that she has to live with her mother's disapproval. I was in a relationship like that when I was in high school, and unfortunately I was the one with the mother that didn't approve. It broke my heart everyday when I came home to my own mother. My gf's mom loved me, she has always encouraged the best in me, we are still close to this day and I will always consider her a part of my family. Her love and acceptance saved me from a dark place when my own mother had nothing to say to me.

this again?

 whatever makes my babies happy... this isnt harming your DD or anyone else... so there is no reason for the other mother to make such a fuss!

Id love my child just the same.

Of course I would be sad because I *may* never get grandkids, but even that is still possible..
