I would honestly be super excited if my daughter told me she were a lesbian. No teen pregnancies :lol:

But, getting into Heaven is about accepting Jesus as your Lord and Savior, not about "good works." That means being gay doesn't send you to hell, it's simply "sin" just like any other sin that we all do. Bad works don't send you to hell anymore then good works buys your way in. According to Christianity, it's all about Jesus.

we think my nephew is gay, to be honest i would be suprised if he brought a girl home , hes 10 and i have felt like this for a good few years, it honestly makes no difference to us, we live in a different world just to 10 years ago, being gay even in school ive noticed is a lot more accepted, which is great, each child is an individual . Each to there own ..

No issues at all. It's why we've been getting both "gender" type clothes for our little one, we want her to be comfortable with herself, whoever she is.



As for the woman that yelled at you.
Some people need to mind their own business.. holy jeebus. She would've gotten a piece of my mind.
Why are people so insecure with THEMSELVES that they feel the need to project it onto others D:

This is how I feel! ha. I told my parents that just the other day. my daughter acts much more like a boy than a girl. She even tells everyone she's a boy. I don't care. other people think it's weird, but whatever

I sometimes hope that I would have a gay child, simply because I talk to some of my "Christian" friends and they talk about how they would never allow their partner to come over for holidays or anything. I cannot imagine a child feeling that rejection.

I have no issues with it. DH well he wouldn't be too happy but made it clear he would be happy his child is themselves instead of pretending to be something their not. His only request (if our kids to end up gay) no make out session in front of him. My oldest DD dresses in boy clothes and she pretends to be the husband when playing house. My DS plays house and is the dad and always taking care of the "babies" they have. Either way my children are exploring and imagining which is all okay by me. DS even painted his toes bright orange one time but hasn't done it since then. My brother's get the nails done with me and even facials but they're straighter than straight. IMO it's not a big deal. Let kids be kids and I don't think any parent or other parent should judge/make a child feel ashamed because they choose to play with things that aren't intended for their sex.

Not really an option for how I would take it. I would not have issue with him being gay at all but I can't say I would be totally and completely fine with it because I would worry about the emotional struggles he'd have to endure.

I would love my child just the same. The only reason my heart would hurt is cause I know there are many people out there who would put her down and treat her wrong. I don't care whether my daughter grows up to like men or women, I will always be there for her and love her infinitely.

I wouldn't be upset or disappointed. I wouldn't be happy either. As long as my child is happy then I couldn't care less about their sexual orientation. My three year old loves Tinkerbell(I think its a crush and not because he's gay) and I let him wear Tinkerbell shirts and he has a Tinkerbell doll that he carries everywhere. I've gotten comments about why I am embracing my child to be gay. :roll:

I'm a Christian too...Only God can judge people and make that decision...We will never know another's fate. My Dad is gay and he goes to church....I look at it the same as I do eating seafood....those "abominations" are right next to eachother in the Bible.

I would be a bit bummed that I wouldnt have any biological grandchildren, but I wouldnt let it known and just hope he would be willing to adopt with his husband. :D
