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?

 Oh I am well aware there is no changing people like you. Just pointing out what you are doing.

I dont care what ppl think about me. I think it's gross but to each there own they can do whatever they want with who ever they want. I don't want that lifestyle for my kids. You can't say anything that will change my feeling about that.

Quoting kngarber:

 Unnatural to whom?  The gay person or just uncomfortable for someone like you?  It is unnatural for them to be wit the opposite sex.  I am sure you do many things that are considered unnatural to others.  How would you feel if somone judged you ever step of the way?  FFS.

I don't have anything against gays but I think it's unnatural. I want my boys to have a wife and kids. Just like if they didn't go to college I would be disappointed. I think gays have a harder life. I want the best for my kids. Yes of course I would still love them buy would be disappointed. I would be just as disappointed if they get a girl knock up at a early age.

I would be just fine with it.  I dont care who my kids are or what they do for a living, etc., as long as they are HAPPY!

I personally believe it is wrong so I would be hurt by it. That being said, there is still nothing any child of mine could do that would make me stop loving them or being a part of their life.

No Christians have not killed thousands, men taking Gods name wrong and applying His word wrong did. And pagans are pagans and will burn for eternity. I know this, I was a witch before that the biggest pagan of all Catholic and my husband was a buddist until we woke up. So I will pray for you and for those who believe they are Christians but attack and harm others. Jesus sat with tax collectors and prostitutes.....sinners, He did not bash them, He loved them, He is a God of love, DO NOT blame the one true God for human mistakes or greed for power. Bottom line male female join in nature reproduce even certain fruit know this basic concept. Some animals kill their own for such acts yet humans are pathetic enough to actually believe being gay is natural.....pathetic

I only have boys... but I'd march in that parade with him, wearing a cute pink boa

I would love them on conditions.    The condition would be that they be HAPPY with the person that they chose.   I wouldn't hold it against them, I believe that a person is not defined by sexuality but by personality.

My Second time around & loving it!
