Personal current event that is also national
Yes this is a gay topic (hence the national part). The personal part is it is my cousin. He came out as gay recently. He has realized it for 6ish years. But he has kept a cover girlfriend the entire time due to his fear of the family. He came out to my brother who referred him to my mom who just told everyone because she is a bitch. But now 3/4 of the family are trying to disown him, tell him he is going to hell, or say he is just confused.
So just my personal PSA, don't raise your children in a family where being gay is unacceptable. My cousin has been living in turmoil for years. He has dragged a girl into this (his cover girlfriend) and now has two kids. He is scared of basically everyone in the family. He thinks half is going to beat him to a pulp and the other half is going to condemn him to hell to his face. He is scared to go home everynight because of what our grandmother is going to say to him (yes he lives with our grandmother, that is a different matter and is attempting to move out, that has been complicated by the cover girlfriend and children).
And don't give me the BS of it is unnatural or against your religion. Every religion says to love your children and your neighbor. Raising someone to think you are going to disown them basicaly for their sexual orientation is not right.
