Should gay/straight kids have different rules for PDA?

I have a friend who lets one daughter hold her boyfriend's hand and hug and kiss him hello/goodbye, but doesn't let the other daughter do the same. The only difference in them is that one of the twins is straight and the other is gay.

Is it okay for straight kids to publicly demonstrate their affection for their SO's but not for gay kids to do so? Or is this mom just very misguided?

The rules should be the same for everyone.  Discrimination is never ok in my book.

They should be treated the same.Your friend is very wrong here and I would seriously have a hard time keeping my mouth shut about it.

That's wrong of her to do. She is ostrasizing her DD, what's good for one should be good for the other.

My question is what about regular friends? Let's say my DD is a lesbian but my DS is straight. DS wants sleepover with his guy friends and I agree. But what about my DD? I would know my DS wouldn't be having sex at his sleepover but I wouldn't know about my DD because she's interested in girls. What's fair in this scenario?

I don't think kids should be doing pda either gay or straight. It's awful enough to see grown people making out.

Nope, for me, the rules are the same. Its about what is happening, not what genitals you have.
