It is often a shock for parents to know that their son is homosexual... whether you are a mom or dad, you will really get shock... At first it is hard for you to understand... There are different cases of how the parents learn that their child is homosexual: some say it face to face, others learn it from their friends... For all however there are questions lingering in your mind... a.what did you do wrong? b.Will he find a job? c.Will others respect him? d.Will he be lonely in his old age if he got no family? e.Can he change?

I've got a good friend. She is a butch. I knew her since I was 5 years old. When she was young, she had long hair and as she grows older, she cuts her hair shorter and shorter. She became a butch when she was 16. It is obvious as she has very short hair and she binds her chest area. Her parents obviously noticed her change too. They were very angry initially. Her daddy was especially angry as he had treated her like a princess. It has been a few years and they are learning to accept her for who she is as she is adamant about changing. She has many girlfriends throughout the past few years and she even brought them home. Even though her parents are angry, all they can do is to accept her. As her good friend, I sincerely wish that one day she can change.

I will accept that person, I know that is very difficult to accept, but they are human and need to accept whoever they are. And have right also to live according to their own desire.

True, and they are also humans made by God... they never wanted what they felt... its just that it happens to them...
