Would you treat your child differently if they were gay?

Some people degrade their children if they're gay and are ashamed of them. How do you feel about this? Would you turn your kids away if they were gay or would you still love them just the same? Sure some parents might feel like it's their fault and some might feel they had nothing to do with it, but why degrade them? They get it bad enough from peers, why do they need it from their own parents? If I had a child and he/she turned out to be gay, I'd still love them unconditionally. I wouldn't let that stop me. Alot of people are gay, doesn't mean they don't deserve love though.

I would never treat my child different based on something like that. You're right you should love them unconditionally. I would question any parent's love for any of their children if they were willing to discard one of them so easily.

I would love my child no matter what. It's kind of like askng what you would do if you had a child with a disability. You didn't choose it, they didn't choose it, it just is!

No, I wouldn't treat my child differently. I would love him unconditionally agape love. I would not condone it as far as them kissing, hugging or showing affection in front of me;

id disown my kids if they were gay. but that may change if i have kids. i am 16 so i dont really know how i would be, i might get emotionally attached and then i wouldnt want to. but right now i would disown them and put them up for adoption

No, not at all. I’d commend them for being strong enough to stand up for something they believe they are. I’d be proud I had created and child that was aware of who he/she was and strong enough to not let people walk over them.

no way, I love my kids and if they decided to become gay then I guess I would just have to deal with it.
