    Things like my name won't be carried on, and I also want grandchildren (not adopted ones), also I'm a pub-goer and would like to take my son down to the pub for his first pint - not an apple-tini, but most of all I would just feel awkward around them I think. Also if he was the stereotypical, flouncy, gay-innuendo person, I would disown him.

    I have nothing against gay people, but to be completely honest I don't want my children to be gay.
    Fair enough, except about the disowning part of course. :yes:

    Not really, I really really dislike the stereotypical gay people, I wouldn't disown him as such but I would find it difficult to spend quality time with him.

    your future son or daughter said.." mum, dad i'm gay"!????

    followingon from the 'do u wana have kids thread' i was wondering what would happen if your children openly said to you they were gay.. in my case, atm if i told my mum this, i'd be slapped multiple times, then stabbed, then sent to the african equivalent of azkaban..(sorry if there are any gay ppl on tsr thats how my family works) but if it were me i'd probably be like ok its your life, you have fun the way you want to but make sure he dont have aids..and dont have sex in my house..
    To be honest, I'd have a problem if my gay son turned around and decided to tell me he's straight. After all the adjustment, then excitement, it would be a bit of a let down :/

    hmmmmmmmm good question.

    Its not as if i have a problem with people being gay - and have friends who are gay but if i had a son and he told me he was gay i wouldnt be angry as such but it would be something id have to deal with - the point im trying to make is that it would be an issue to me - but if someones gay they are gay so ........... its just something youd have to get used to i spose

    Aww, I'd be proud of them.. but provided I'm gay myself, I don't think they would have to "come out" to me. A child is a person of its own, so I don't think there'd be anything my child could say/do that would make me hate them/disown them. Haha, your question gave me a general fuzzy feeling

    I would be fine with it, family friend of ours is gay and from when me and my brother were younger we always as a family visited him (and his partner) and we learnt there is nothing wrong with it. My parents knew this man when he hadn't come out as gay yet, and they knew what a struggle it was telling his parents, they still won't speak to him. My mum has always reminded me and my brother that it doesn't matter if we were gay... we aren't I feel that she passed on the attitude now, as we aren't homophobic

    As soon as I read the thread, I remember the Christian/Syed/Amira thing in Eastenders.
