    The idea of your child having ANY sex isn't gross?!

    I'm not a parent yet, but I wouldn't want to think of my little cousins having sex, so I can only imagine how I'd feel about my own children!

    Please remember people, homosexuals have children too!
    It would be MORE gross and more gay couples than straight couples don't have children. I think i'd be more concerned whether my kids were good people but I would definintely rather they were straight than gay.

    Wouldn't it just make more sense for you to concentrate on raising them to be good people who want children, since those seem to be your priorities?

    wouldn't you worry about alienating them and failing to enjoy their goodness and their children if you care about their sexuality?

    I genuinely wouldn't mind personally, but knowing other people's thoughts about homosexuality, I would be concerned for them having to deal with bullies and discrimination etc. Still, if I had a child who was gay, I wouldn't wish that they were straight, just like I don't wish I was straight rather than bisexual, even with the difficulties.

    No I would love them just as much, treat them exactly the same and support them however possible. If they're gay they're gay, i'd just rather they weren't but it's not a huge issue for me. Sorry if i'm offending anyone I just thought I might as well be honest.

    I hate the stupid "No i want my kids to be straight because i want grand kids" argument. Having children in order to one day have grand children = selfish and a stupid idea!

    Why do you need to have grand children to live your life through anyway there's lots of other things you can go and do!

    I agree with OP. Not because all parents are homophobic, but because it makes life a whole lot easier for the parents as well as the kid. The kid won't have to suffer abuse from peers, the parents won't have to have awkward conversations with the kid. Two hetero parents wouldn't really understand what the kid is going through so they would rather not have to face that scenario.

    Nothing to do with homophobia at all.

    i think it's all a matter of your natural instincts, for straight people it's easy to argue that it's always been like that and change scares them, parents should support their children no matter what but some are just more old fashioned than others and there's nothing wrong with that, but i really hate how people treat gays, bisexuals lesbians etc...

    i do agree with ur statement (even after what i just posted lol) if parents are mad bent on grandkids, thats wrong but i can sympathise if it's like their only child and they want them carry out the legacy, be grandparents blah blah blah kinda thing lol but then again thats where adoption, sperm donors and surrogate mothers come in, if they and their kid(s) want babies

    If you want kids, then your probably want gradnchildren too, right? Whilst not having grandchildren wouldn't be the end of the world - you're right in that there's loads of other ways to be happy - you would rather have grandchildren than not.

    Well, the 21st century has seen the proliferation of other ways to have children (and grand~) than simply putting a penis into a vagina..

    Would you want that more than the time-honoured way?

    I couldn't care less, to be honest.

    If I have children any other way than the biological one it wouldn't make me any less of a father, and anyone of that opinion knows where to stick it.

    Oh, you're conceding that point? Excellent
    I think I understand the confusion now – what I said means, in the first instance, that some gay parents will be fine with their kids being gay/bi-curious, the inference here is that they will ‘want’ them to be 'gay' e.g. explore their sexuality if the feeling takes them/be openly gay, if indeed they are that way inclined, rather than closet

    It’s also possible (if less probable) to imagine gay parents who think the world/their community would be better off if there were more homosexuals in it however, and by that virtue (a minority) might perhaps literally want (in the more affirmative sense) at least one of their kids to turn out gay.. or indeed in their own image, to include this particular characteristic, again improbable but still plausible

    Meh, I'd rather not get test tubes and other people involved. It obviously doesn't affect how good a parent someone is, but ideally, I'd rather not have any issues.

    I genuinely don't care what sexuality my kids have.
    I'm bisexual myself so if I'm honest it'd be kind of hypocritical of me to judge my child based on their sexuality.
    Whoever they love, it's up to them, I don't care if it's male or female.
