    well, at least if my daughter was a lesbian, I wouldn't have to worry about the billions of penises that could impregnate her...
    Abysmal post.

    Well if I ever have children, that be through that new method which recently was announced as possible where both dads could give their DNA to the baby, bog standard artificial insemination with surrogate or adoption (all are quite unlikely at this stage as I still hate children - but that could change) I will teach them about which jobs to not choose, even if you are starving and living on the street. Traffic Warden and Tax Collector spring to mind....

    I would be happy for them, but then be an awkward parent like Regina George's on Mean girls - offering condoms and lube whenever they are in the presence of another person they like. :mmm:
    What would a girl need condoms for? :beard: You only want boys? SEXIST!!! :fuhrer:

    Dildos? You don't want to spreading nothing around - and your daughter's girlfriend could pick something up. I'm not being sexist I'm pulling out all the stops :holmes:

    Even then if they didn't need them it could be an ironic/awkward joke.

    I really wouldn't care. Hopefully I'd raise my kids to understand that homosexuality is natural, and really not a big thing, to the point where they wouldn't even have to "come out" to me, they'd just grow up knowing they were gay and that's just as fine as being straight is.

    I'm not sure this works. It anyway doesn't for me. You'd surely be at least as far 'removed' from a daughter, even a straight daughter, as from a gay son. I mean, sexuality doesn't seem as importantly defining as gender. And if you could chat to a straight son about girl problems, why couldn't you do the same with a gay daughter?

    To be perfectly honest, and while sex is certainly one of my interests, it isn't one I'm at all keen to discuss with either parent. We have bonded, heterosexual parents and heterosexual son, but not over this. Heterosexual sex isn't explicitly a shared interest of ours and I'd actually be mortified if my parents started to broach relationship issues in a way that required reference to sexual mechanics. To the limited extent that we've had talks about my romantic life, they've been exclusively about issues such as trust and loyalty, getting over loss and so on, topics need make no reference to the gender of the other party.
    I never mentioned sex or 'sexual mechanics', only relationships. Regardless, I guess I'm hoping for a 'traditional' family and the normal social and personal experiences that entails.

    Absolutely nothing apart from loving and supporting them. It does not matter what gender your child is attracted to.

    In all honesty I'd probably do what someone I knows dad did when he found out, politely ignore it and never have it spoken of in the house again...

    Well, I'd tell them that I accept them for who they are, and that I'm proud that they felt they could share something so personal with me. I'd say that they have nothing to be ashamed of, and that there's nothing wrong with being gay. I'd tell them that they should be who they want to be(so long as they don't harm anyone in the process) and just be happy.
    I'd say the same thing if I found out my child was heterosexual.

    Why would you pray to help someone who is homosexual? Homosexual people don't need help, it's not an illness. There is nothing wrong with being homosexual.

    i would love them regardless, but try and show them that they are sinning and hope that they can suppress the urges.

    Tease them about people they fancy at school same as I would if they were straight, and hopefully I'll stay in contact with my friend I'm living with next year, he's gay so if my son(s) ever needed to talk to him about anything they didn't feel they could ask me I'd direct them his way. It wouldn't make the slightest difference to me. I'm not fussed about biological children/grandchildren so that wouldn't upset me either. And I know my parents wouldn't care so they'd have at least one set of supportive grandparents as well. I don't think I could ever marry a homophobe so their dad wouldn't care either.
