Want to argue this?

Provide a link to a reputable news source that proves otherwise.

I'm patient.

I'll wait.

I am curious oh eloquent one. Lets hear your explanation of Gay to your child.waveysmiley

My daughter has known gay people since she was born, since her mother and I knew a bunch as friends.

So she knew from a very early age that love is between two people, regardless of sex. We never had to explain it to her.

I guess this is an opportunity to give some perspective from a point of view that I don't think I have ever seen when discussing the gay issue.

I grew up in the 40's and 50's with a gay Sister 4 years older than myself. In those years, there were no gay's, only queers and faggots. She was always the Tom Boy type, baseball, hunting and flannel shirts and jeans so it was not difficult to distinguish her inclinations from the norm.

When you speak of the love and joy between two people of the same sex, that was never apparent to me. What I dealt with was people who on the surface were friendly to her but behind her back were making the snide remarks and wondering if it ran in the family. As a young boy, her antics were an embarrassment to me.

After school, my queer Sister married a Faggot guy, how about that for something to deal with. They had a short 4 year marriage that was doomed from the start but did produce 2 beautiful daughters. After years of playing the field, she finally settled down and got married to another female which lasted 25 years until her death.

It took many years before I got to the point where I could discuss her lifestyle with her. I was able to tell her that I could accept her lifestyle but that I will never be able to understand it. As an adult i became much better at dealing with the situation and have been to parties with more queers and faggots than you can shake a stick at. You can also throw in a few plain old cross dressers and at least one transgender called Peggy. I have been propositioned and have been able to laughingly decline.

After all that do I have anything against gay's? Not at all. Do I understand it? Not at all. Am I glad my children are all straight you bet. As adults it is easy for us to assume what and how our children feel. Just because we want to be accepting of something does not necessarily mean our children do or will without consequences. Nobody explained it to me either. waveysmiley

In all honesty, can one human being say they REALLY "understand" another human being?

Acceptance is an awesome first step, one I wish more people would take.
