I am the mom to six sons...one of them coming out is not the worst thing I can imagine happening. Just curious how many people would think that such news was devestating if they got it.

i dont have children but i know i wouldnt be devistated if they 'came out' to me. if it makes them happy, family and friends should support them, they get enough crap from narrow minded people who think they are so different and are wrong. i have gay friends and family members so ive grown up with it and dont find an issue with it. as long as its between 2 consenting adults, no one should judge. some say it is unnatural...but there may be things in their life that we find wrong or unnatural..if people were a little more tolerant of others no matter what their sexuality, nationality, religion, looks, disabilities....then the world would be a better place.

Have a foster daughter, who at one point told me she was gay. Just one of those things really. She thought I might be upset about that. Not really upset about it per se, but worried about the quality of her life, because there is still a lot of prejudice. She is now happily married and has two children, with a third on the way. I would have been far more upset if she had deliberately hurt other people or done some vicious thing. Though I have never given birth, I would imagine that the link between a mother and her child would be so strong that it would be very dificult to abandon the child over their sexuality.
