Quoting Smartass *TTC*:" What if your child is gay? We all say "I just want my child to be happy" But is that true? The more ... [snip!] ... be because he wore a Cinderella dress when he was 4. But let's say my son is gay. Fine by me. I honestly could not care less."
This thread is long and I havent read it... but what did she say to you?
My thoughts are weird... I hope this makes sense. But I HATE the term "coming out." I hate that people have to come out. I never sat down my parents, scared out of my mind, and said "Mom, Dad, Im straight" and hoped i wouldn't be kicked out. So WHY do glbt persons have to ddo it? I hope that I raise my child in such a way that if she IS lesbian (and I do believe it is genetic and runs in families and if it is true, its a good chance she could be at least bi due to our family) she comes to me and is all nonchalant like "Mom can I have some money to get Alyssa some flowers, I want to ask her out to the dance." And have it be. Not "Mom, I'm a lesbian" just, "I want to get this girl a gift" or "Wow that girl is BEAUTIFUL! Should I go ask for her number?" Ya know, I just want it to be as ordinary as can be.
But if she did have to have that big talk with me, I'd just say "I'll support you no matter what. But if anyone hurts you, boy OR girl, Ill beat their ass! Now, what do you want for dinner?" As I hug her. NOT make it a big deal.
I just hate that people even have to have that talk. My half sister was disowned for being a lesbian. When she found me on myspace she said "Im your sister Lisa, I hope you know about me.........(insert some stuff about her here and her being nervous about writing me)..... but I do have to say, I am lesbian and if you cant accept that then let's just not speak further." The first sentence I said was "Yes, I've always known about you. My parents never hid you from me and Jessica. That being said... you are my sister. Of course we accept you. I have always been pro GLBT rights, and I will accept anyone that you are with if they treat you well!" And from there I got to know my awesome sister and her wife
