If I ever decide to have children, and they turn out to be gay...I would be extremely dissapointed and sad. Before anyone jumps on me, let me just say now I am not homophobic. It's just that I don't want them growing up being ridiculed and teased which is bound to happen (call me cynical).Growing up is hard enough already! I was bullied as a child, and I know how much it sucks.
Sometimes I think that people actually over-exaggerate the problems gay people have - a lot of people are saying they're worried about the bullying and stuff but I'm 20, been out for roughly 5 years, and I have NEVER been bullied, been insulted, persecuted or name-called because of my sexuality.
Maybe that makes me lucky, I don't know, I've mainly lived in Manchester and London which are big, inclusive, multi-cultural places , I guess things could be different out in the country and stuff. But honestly it hasn't made my life any harder.
I don't think you can say how you would react. For 3 years my mum wouldn't accept it and then she realised that I was still the same person and that it didn't fundamentally change who I was, so never say never.
I wouldn't mind at all. gay/les people are perfect normal to me...in fact...most gay guys are much more sensitive than straight guys!!
i would mind it, and i would worry more about them, because of the amount of discrimination gay/les ppl face at school and in the world in general.
gay people are always so much HOTTER than us straights...not fair
i wouldnt mind if my kids were to be gay.
i mean their youre kids?! surely u should love them no matter how they are. i mean parents love their kids with a disability. so why should sexuality be different. its a natural thing that has been around forever.
if my kids said they were gay, i really wouldn't have a problem with it, if thats what makes them happy, so be it. I have a male friend whos openly ni, at the moment he has a boyfriend, and a few female frind who are also bi. s I guess that the policy I take with my friends would apply to my children, afterall, if their your children your going to love them no matter what.
i wouldnt be too happy but Id get over it and love them all the same.
