I wouldn't disown him/her. That would be just ignorant. I would help him/her "get out from the closet" :D

no friends are family.I dont agree wouldnt agree with it but I would not disown them I would just ask they show respect around me and my family and not do anything around us that we would want to see or have our children see

Well you telling your friend not to be themself around you .. "not wanting to see it" how about if they told you not to be your self around them .. the best thing in the world is love how can you judge someone on who they love ?

No! If someone would do that, they were never a friend to begin with.

Of course not! It would actually make a safer friendship because then we would not be competing for the same people LOL No seriously, I would not have a problem with it at all.

anyone that is able to disown a friend just because of sexuality is not human by my books.

Absolutely not! A friend is exactly that: a friend. And a true friend would support them in their decision, and would (hopefully) appreciate where they're coming from, even if it does not match their own beliefs about it. They did not choose to be gay, they were born that way, and we just have to love them for who they are and not pass judgement on them. If anyone disowned a friend who they found out was gay, they really weren't that strong a friend to begin with.

If I disowned all of my gay friends, I'd probably be left alone, standing in a room by myself. Now what fun would that be! By the way, if you're looking for "buddies", add me! I'm gay-friendly!

I think I'd have the same problem! Yeah, I won't have gay friend or men friends. Hmm, that leaves 2 friends for me!

No...I would not do that..How I see it..That does not matter to me..As long as they are A really good friend to me...And why would I not be there friend,Just because I found that out? I am not that kind-of A person..I think everyone has there own option of what Religion,What clothes,If the wanna dye there hair,If they want to be Straight,Or like there own kind ,or whatever they believe in....It would not matter to me,Just as long as they were A really food friend to me...I don't think like that...Everyone has A right to believe in what she,or she wants.

No way, I'd make sure they knew how much I loved them and that I was happy they could come out and be true to themselves.
