Would you accept it? Try to change or "fix" them? Would you kick the out of the house? Would you worry about others in the community finding out?

I don't have any kids, I'm still a teen, just a question!

My son did tell me he was gay. I love him  no matter what. I will never turn my back on my kids. Some will though. I will not.

I think people are the way GOD made them, and you can't change that.  :)

I think ...

There is no extant evidence to support that contention.

Although I don't approve of the gay/lesbian lifestyle, no I would not disown my children. If it happens I would still embrace and love them always. They are still my babies and would never let their sexual orientation keep me from loving them or being in their lives.

I absolutely would not turn my back on him.   I love my son unconditionally.  I might worry about how other people would treat him, but I he knows he is loved in this house no matter what.

I love my children unconditionally...whether they lead a life I agree with or don't.  I will never turn my back on my children...I will always support them no matter what.  As a parent, I am always convicted to guide them, but I don't believe a parent can guide if they can't also support and love that child unconditionally.

Hello,
That is a great question.  No, I would not disown my child for being gay or lesbian.  I would love them for who they were.

I love my children unconditionally. Something like sexual orientation would not change that. They would still be loving, intelligent and wonderful human beings. They would be my babies no matter what.

No I would never disown one of my children.  I would probably feel some compassion for him because I know that being "gay" is a challenge for most people.

I don't believe being "gay" is a choice and I believe that everyone deserves to love and be loved.   :heart:
Have a great day!

People are who they are...if we would be open-minded and accepting of others, the world would be a nicer place.
