There are some posters, you being one, who's posts/comments I anticipate reading, sometimes I look & laugh at the screen, other times I sit there with a look of despair on my face lol, but I can always rely on you, amongst others to 'liven up' the place!

Of course.

They have for years now. My mom told me that she may not really understand, agree with my actions, or choices.

Though she'll accept me no matter what, and my whole family has been supportive of me being gay.

 

I'm 22 now, and I've been out since I was about 15-16ish.

Re: Would your parents accept you if you were gay?

I am much more tolerant of gay people than my parents and grandmom. I'd say my Mom and Grandmom would accept me but they would be a little disappointed. My dad wouldn't. AT ALL. (Homosexuality has been frowned upon in black communities for a long time. This subject is the greatest way to find a generation gap.)

 

Because of the way I was raised, I grew up thinking gay people were evil "sinners" who were going to hell and due to negative experiences with gay people (I had a gay stalker from 8th grade (2005) up until last year) I was kind of scared of them. Until I got to High School. A quarter of the girls were gay, my favorite teachers were gay (One even hung a gay pride flag in front of the class), even my closest friend by senior year was gay. It was then that I realized how wrong I was and how misguided my parents were. So yes, I would love my child equally, no matter what their sexual orientaion is.

 

Putting religion before my family is something I don't believe in. I stopped being a "religious person" a while ago (I'm apathetically agnostic but I just say I'm Catholic for school reasons).

Yes.

My Dad passed away, but he was cool like that.

And so is my Mom. She shows what every parent should -- unconditional love.

This is as good a place as any for me to chime in unsolicited.  TS, I like you.  We don't always agree (although we often do), and sometimes I wish you would elaborate more, but, I respect you, and would game with you any time.

 

*fistbump*

 

To answer the OP:  In a word - YES.

I assume so but my grandparents are a whole different story. If I had a child who was gay I would accept them for who they are and still be involved in their life.

 All this.

 

Sure you have to learn things from someone, but not always what they teach you is right.

Oh my god I'm TS LOL. When you said it in the games night thread I'm just like "What does that mean..." But now I get it. While we're on the subject, I pretty much have the same feelings towards you. Sometimes I just can't agree with your opinions but eh, it wouldn't be a commuinty if we agreed all the time
