    Well actually I wouldn't mind. I'd prefer it if they were bi-sexual rather than gay but that's only because it would be nice to feel I have the chance to be a grandmother. Obviously I know that they could adopt but the child wouldn't be blood so I wouldn't feel 100% like a proper grandmother. But I'd get over it. These days I don't think sexuality can be so simple, that it can't be just plain black or white. I see sexuality like a spectrum, some people can fall in the middle and it's just certain circumstances that could change where you fit on the spectrum.

    So basically, I wouldn't mind if my child were gay at all. And there isn't any point trying to contradict me and tell me that I'm lying or something because I seriously know I wouldn't have a problem with it. Homosexuality isn't like a problem you just have to deal with, it's who you are and nothing can change that and I'm going to be accepting and supportive towards my child no matter who they are (unless they're like a druggey, murderer or rapist and I'd like to think that I don't raise my children to turn out like those type of people!).

    Not really. Nothng that other species dont already do in their own way.

    Should expect this sort of behaviour from a Cardiff fan tbh, they are known in football circles for being *****.
    Yep. Quite a bit actually.

    In anycase, why is it bad that something isn't "natural". Us being able to use computers and a series of networks to communicate isn't natural. Us living in brick houses with comfortable beds is not natural. Etc Etc.

    And rofl. Going to ignore me just cos I'm a Cardiff fan? lols.

    I really think that's completely untrue in my experience
    Well your experience isn't my experience. I can only call what I've seen.

    Of course, honesty on this forum isn't appreciated, is it?

    Who mentioned ignoring you? I think you need to learn how to read!.

    Some birds use sticks as tools, that is natural, and that is effectivly what we do.

    Our houses are just the equivalent to a birds nest.

    Oh come on.
    How about plane travel?
    Or exploring space?
    Or the internet (as I mentioned).
    Or driving?
    Or the millions of other things we do and use, that are not natural, but no one has a problem with.

    Would not mind if my child was gay. Not in the slightest. Yes they may have to face discrimination and prejudice at some point in their life by some people (a lot of whom seem to be on this forum) but it would only make them a stronger person in the long run.

    It is corny but as long as they are happy who cares

    As for being a grandmother, again who cares. Who is to say that if your child was straight they would want children?! It isn't your choice to be a grand mother you either are or you aren't and quite frankly I would be proud of my son/daughter if they adopted.

    Wow, talk about putting words in my mouth! What I wrote means that some gay parents are likely to be fine with their kids being gay?

    I've heard this before and can empathise, would never be so bold as to suggest that all gay parents would be fine with their kids being gay! :rolleyes:
    Yeah, no, I know you weren't saying that, I only said it because it follows from what you said even though I didn't think you would believe it. I said it so you could hopefully see how your choice of words changes the meaning. Now you're saying 'would be fine with' it makes more sense and changes the meaning. Also I would be perfectly fine with my child being gay from a personal point of view, I just think it'd make life easier for them to be straight.

    Honestly, I'd be a bit gutted because I'd probably be looking forward to grandchildren.

    I don't think I'd see my child any differently, however.

    The title was 'no one wants gay children', you replied 'except a gay parent'. Do you understand the word 'want'? It's not the same as 'would be okay with'. The latter is passive, the former is an actual desire.

    ..except a gay parent perhaps?
    Oops!

    I do indeed understand the word 'want', among others.. such as 'misinterpret', 'misquote', 'misguided', and 'misanthrope' :rolleyes:

    Yes I do think that. Your carpet munching days will be over in a few years, and then you will look back at this little phase with embarressment.

    If you wear skirts and high heels you are NOT a Lesbian and don't try to tell me otherwise
    Yes and the fact that she has long hair too, what a no no!:eek:

    ....Seriously WTF!
    Please tell me you are joking?!

    This is the standard test to test female homosexuality and is used by social scientists and academics all over the United States.







    Q. Do you look like the women in these pics -

    A. No, then you are an attention seeking/ confused young woman, who is following a fad and will likely get over their phase after a year or two.

    A. Yes, then you are a lesbian.

    The word 'perhaps' doesn't affect the meaning of the sentence, you're saying maybe the parent wants it, maybe they don't. It doesn't mean 'disregard what I said, I meant to say the parent might be okay with it'. Jesus. Also I was paraphrasing to try and make my point clearer for you. Seeing as it's clearly not sinking in I'll go through it a little slower.

    Thread title: "Deep down, no parent wants their kid to be gay"
    Your response "..except a gay parent perhaps? "

    Let's stop here. What this says, assuming we're going by the standard rules of English, is 'perhaps a gay parent would want their child to be gay and perhaps they wouldn't'. It doesn't mean 'a gay parent might express no homophobic/heterophobic preference'. You're providing gay parents as the (possible) exception to the rule that 'no parent wants gay children' which is exactly equivilent to saying 'some gay parents might want gay children, some won't.'

    Do you see what I'm saying now? I wouldn't be so pedantic if you weren't being so stubborn when you can see for yourself how you're blatantly wrong.

    How the **** can it be natural?

    The human race would die of it enough of the likes of you existed. Luckily your in the minority.

    No other animal is stupid enough to be homosexual.

    You are just confused in the head.
    Not everyone has to reproduce for a species to grow. And no worries, we have an overpopulation problem, so we won't die out.

    Hundreds of other species have been observed practicing homosexual behaviors. There's nothing special about humans.

    I think it may not be not wanting their children to be gay, more a wish to be grandparents.
