    i encourage it and would be more then happy if any of my boys turned out gay, so long as safe sex was practised.
    maybe thats just because of my own sexuality though
    Same.. I think it's a bigger problem with Asian families and African ones. My friend's gay and when he came out to his parents, they kicked him out and he lived with his grandparents (who were surprisingly liberal about it).

    I'm Asian myself and I wouldn't care at all if my child was gay. As long as he was happy, I'd be fine.

    I don't think I could become good friends with someone whose views I hate...

    Yeah, that's what I'm planning to do, thanks!
    I used to bully this guy who was the epitome of a stereotypical gay (we didn't know for sure if he was but turns out he was) in high school. Him being so camp was literally the reason we bullied him. All the insults, throwing pencils at the back of head in classes... And when we had to be more subtle bits of rubber... Tripping him up... It sucked man and in hindsight I hate that that was me as I'm so not like that anymore.

    Also in hindsight, looking at his pictures on facebook now I'd probably **** him if I was suitably inebriated to allow myself to have casual sex with someone :P

    Maturity from 14-18 to 20+ is pretty wild for most folks.

    Your culture is likely very different from your parents though. Not really raised in the same world tbh.

    I don't hate their views or anything tbh i'm kind of indifferent but i have two friends who are friends with each other and one is rather left and the other is rather right (she isn't 'racist' 'homophobic' before anyone says otherwise i wouldn't associate with her ) anyway we have to do this debate thing in form times and it is so awkward being in the middle of them argue over politics
    oh and one of them never shuts up about the American Election lol which gets a bit tiring

    My dad's been in the country for about 40 years but he's old school.

    My mum was born and raised in India to very conservative parents.

    It's sad that both of them view it as disgusting.

    Some of my friends believe that women shouldn't have equal rights to men (despite being women themselves) and that women should stick to the role of a housewife. They literally look at me with disgust when I say I'd like to develop a career while I have kids.

    Yeah but I mean the views that other peers at school and even your teacher's will have had - the politicians in the media. It's not a country vs country thing.

    The culture of working class men 40 years ago vs now is very different and so I have a very different view of the world from my dad and you from yours no doubt despite spending so much time in the same country.

    Granted most of our views are formed when we are very young so how long someone has been in a country after they've been raised in another doesn't really matter much :L

    That's another irrelevant point. You are calling those who follow Islam, terrorists.

    One of my friends thinks that if she had a child who came out as gay and started a physical relationship then she would disown them and refuse to support them.

    Her justification? She has full faith in her religion and that disowning them would make them realise their sin and make them come back so they can get to heaven.

    Her views sicken me tbh. She blindly follows a religion and apparently that matters more than your own child's happiness.
    Yeah it's just stuff like this that puts me off being friends with someone. The kind of stuff that just seems like common sense and not being an arse.
