Is your child or children gay and if so how does this make you feel as a parent. Do you feel like you have went wrong somewhere in your child's life.

Don't feel like you did something wrong. I am a gay teenager, but I was raised just like any straight child. Your child was meant to be gay from day 1. The only way you could go wrong is if you don't accept them. Trust me, it will kill them. That's the situation I'm in, and I just want to scream and cry every day. Your child is just as normal as everyone else, so treat him as such. AndNO THERAPY! It'll make them want to kill themselves. Love them. Be the parents I never had.
Thanks for reading the ramblings of a homosexual 14 year old.

When and if you have children, they deserve your unconditional love.

That is just one of the many rewards from being blessed with children.

If you feel you are not prepared to handle the responsibilities then get a pet.

They didn't say their child is gay,they asked is your child gay and how that makes you feel.Being gay is not normal or like anyone else,just like other gay people and it is abnormal.

To David,
Honey, stay strong. you are only 14. don't listen to posts like the last one. you stay strong and be confident in who you are and what you want to be in life. being gay is not a choice, it is how you were born. be proud to be who you are and be a good person and you will be just fine in life. I am sorry you don't have support with your family, but you must rise above that and live your life for you and no one else. please know that if you love yourself and who you are you will succeed and find a better place to live. you will find people who love you for who you are and not what they think you should be. it breaks my heart that you don't have support like you should have, but one day you will. highschool is only one little blip in your life. life truly begins when you graduate so just concentrate on making good grades, getting a wonderful career and going somewhere that you will be happy and care free. i know you will do this and make a great life for yourself. please hang in there. sometimes to be strong and successful and happy you have to go through the hardtimes to get there. all the best to you.

Oh my goodness thank you so much! I may be being a bit weird about this, but you are the first person to give me hope and encouragement about being gay! The best my friend can say is"you're not going to hell". Don't worry I've always been top in my classes and I won't let you or myself down no matter what! Thank you!

I also wanted to mention, to all those who use the Bible to fight gays: I am a Christian. A Catholic. However, unlike many people, I understand that the Church isn't God. Many people believe that when the church leaders speak, that it is God speaking. The Church is a placethought of by God but used by man. When you leave power in the hands of man, it becomes abused and corrupted. I do not turn to the Chur ch on matters of my sexuality, but to God. This is where many people go wrong. When I first started "being gay" I fought it because of what my church said. I became a different person. I was more timid, snappy. When we stopped going to church for a few weeks, I turned to God. I tried to figure out why he would do this to me. I began to pray more. Then I realized the full truth. God created me this way for a reason. He wants me to show the world that we are just as normal as everybody else. We're all humans, with morals and virtues just like any straight man or woman. Now that I am accepting of myself, I am hapier. Even if I don't have as much support as I'd hoped for, I am much happier now that it's not a secret. I hope you understand this. Thank you.

None of my kids are gay, thank God. If any of them were, I would still love them as I do now. I do know someone who has a son that is openly gay. It doesn't seem to bother him in the least bit. He loves his son regardless.

I could say so many things in response to this to argue my point and prove I'm telling the truth, but your church has really messed up the way you understand love.

The Bible is a piece of literature, not a history textbook! My father, who attended a seminary for many years, kept reminding me of this every time I askedif a particular story was true. It is meantto be i nterpreted. The story of Sodom was a story of rape, which is wrong no matter what the gender. It doesn't talk about the love between a gay couple. Did you k now (you probably did, mr get real) that there are a couple hundred more bad things said about straight people than gay in the Bible? But any "get real" it doesn't matter what you think. I know I'm right because I'm actually gay, and people like you have no idea what I've been through .

Why do we have to live in a world where this question even needs to be asked? Shouldn't every parent just accept their child for who they are?! Why can't I live in a world where a gay 14 year old is just as safe and is just as protected and loved as a straight person?! Many a time I've wished I could just be normal before I accepted that I was. I may not be the norm, but I'm just as normal and natural as the rest of you. And I will fightto the death to defend that. I'm done being looked at like a freak, or being ignored because I'm gay. Please, just accept and love your child. Remind them from time to time, even if they're straight, that you'd love them even if they're gayand not to be discriminatory towards gay people.

All I can say is thank you so so so much! I don't even know you and yet you feel like a mother to me! If the world were full of such people as you... well, I cannot even imagine. I suppose there has to be bad in the world to bring out the good. So thank you.

it is hard growing up in irvine and being gay, when my mother asked me, all she sead was you know i dont like it and i think it is wrong but you are my son and i love you eather way. at that time i had not been out in the world and didnt know there was a lot like me, but now i am older i see in a small town like this there is a lot here but dont let people know, even married people i see out. but they grown up here and played the str8 life and i started that way also. growing up i didnt have gay friends and no place to go. i wish at times i could open up my place for a day and have a cook out and swim so every one could come and meet other gay people in irvine and make some friends and talk. hang in there david.
