Advice for Moms Advice for Moms

I just want to know your opinions on LGBT. I'm a supporter are you? Why are why not? Not against anyone's opinions. We all have our own opinions and just would like to hear from you all on why or why not you support

Quoting auntiemissa:

i do not think it is right for the marriage part because marriage is suppose to be between a man and a woman. i honestly dont care who you fall in love with tho. my question is this: and not to be rude but i always wondered this: usually when there are 2 women together,one always portrays the femine look and one portrays a more tomboy look. why is that? is this more of a gender identity crisis than love? are you wanting to be a man? why change your appearance? iam not trying to be rude or anything like that but was just curious. and at the wedding alot of times one female is dressed as the bride and the other as the groom even tho they are female. iam confused?!?!

What proof do you have that marriage is supposed to be only between a man and a woman?  Why can it not be between those of the same sex?  And you don't know squat about homosexuals if you think they all "change their appearance" LMAO.  My best friend is a married Lesbian, both her and her partner have bodies most super models would die for LMAO...One of the men I used to live with constantly had women throwing themselves at him because he was very well muscled, worked out...yeah is partner often dressed up but he was an entertainer as well.  You need to get better educated if you are going to discuss something you have very little knowledge about.

I'm not really all that familiar with transexuals, but I think the group in general is good. I support it because I really don't care. Live and let live is my usual response.

I'm definitely a supporter, and can't understand why anyone would spend any amount of time or energy to fight the LGBT community having normal human rights.

I like this and I feel the same way about my daughter who is gay. Gay is a part of who she is but not all of who she is. She will ALWAYS be my daughter.

Quoting CoeyG:

My daughter is bi.  I don't think of her as "my bisexual daughter" I think of her as "my daughter" period

Quoting etsmom:

My aunt didn't know until she went through his computer. He took pictures of each encounter and left it on there. There were also several porn films that he did too. She found out all of this in October. She confronted him and told him the marriage is over. He accidently broke her ankle and now she is mostly wheelchair bound because during the surgery while finishing the surgery one of the techs rips a 3" square patch of skin and put the cast over it. She has had a horrendous infection and had to have more surgery and some skin grafting. Their marriage is over, but she is in a financial situation that makes it so she can't divorce until next year. As for her spiraling, she has to continue living in the house that they share because of her financial situation. She has to see him  every day, he is openly gay to her (not an issue to me, just a psychologically destructive to her) brings his dates home and is very vocal about what he is doing. She doesn't eat. She drinks every day, she goes to work for city council and she can't tell anyone what is going on because she is also Steven Ministry and she would rather not have everyone know what she is going through. As for my feelings in it, I am sad that he is tormenting her and she is stating that she is ugly and fat. Sometimes she wants to take a bottle of pills and just go to sleep forever. She takes muscle relaxers with her wine.

I do realize that she is in charge of her own destiny, but I cannot help but have negative feelings towards the way that he is and what he has done to destroy her marriage. I am not saying that I dislike or would go out of my way to suppress the rights of others, I am saying I might feel a bit differently about gays right now if I wasn't so concerned about the effects of his actions. They were married for 8 years and she did not know that he had that kind of lifestyle before she married him. I don't care that he is gay, I am stating my opinion.


Quoting CoeyG:

It sounds as if your aunt knew about it, if so then why didn't she leave the marriage rather than "sprialing"?   She is reponsible for her fate, not your uncle.


He didn't do anything to destroy her, she alllowed herself to be destroyed by her own self.  No one on this earth is responsible for anyone else's happiness, if she was unhappy after finding what she found then it was up to her to figure out how to make herself happy, she chose to "spiral downard" He didn't do that to her.  They were married for eight years and she decided to snoop into his email account, had she not snooped she wouldn't have "spiraled downward" ecause she wouldn't have found anything.  Conversely had he gotten to know him better efore she married him she may have found all this out before the marriage and not married him at all.  She is responsible for the choices she has made in her life, not him.

This is pretty much my attitude. When my sister came "out" I was like "ok... And?"
