my mom is totally cool with it, my dad doesn't know.

my sister was the first to know but I feel like she's sometimes disappointed, I was wrestling around with my buddy matt the other night(innocently, our friend tony was also there) and she asked me if I had ever considered dating a girl.


o.O just kind put me off. ehh....also, my mom seems afriad to openly say it anywere, though she ackknowledges it and stuff.


oh well, I suppose

Well we're parents (That would be me and the Wife) and we've always been open with our children on same sex relationships. Not pushy, just putting it down as a matter of fact option. So hopefully they'll have no worries when they find their sexuality.

I don't think I could have come out to my parents, but then I was never in a full time relationship that would have made it a necessity.

Your mom sounds kind of like mine sasha. My dad doesn't know either. I don't live with him and I only see him a couple times a year at most, I see no point in telling him if I don't see him enough for it to matter.

I actually told my mother the summer after I got out of Middle school. Dad will get told when I get an actual relationship with him, or when I get married since gay marriage is legal where I live.

Why does it seem that most fathers are less accepting of homosexuality compared to mothers?
I know this isn't always true, in fact I told my dad first that I was a lesbian and he thought it was fine, "So we're both into breasts then?" (yes, actual quote). My mother on the other hand, sort of looked away as if ignoring the gay would make it go away.

typically it's based on the upbringing, and I think it's just a coincidence, either that or some fathers don't see a gay son as a son, they see him as like... a girl, a disgrace, someone who won't carry on the family name.

likewise for lesbian daughters, fathers wont have grandchildren typically from them(there are exceptions for both men and women)

but...ehh, I think mothers are more accepting typically because they gave birth to you and usually mothers and their children are closer...USUALLY.

I would have to agree. Not long after I came out to my father he told me that he had allways hoped that I would have plenty of children to carry on the family name. He also wanted me to follow in his footsteps and join the army, its a family tradition. He said he was annoyed that those things would never happen and that I was somehow selfish in "choosing" to be gay and denying him those things.

After talking things through with him I can see why he feels the way he does. But I imagine its not something that could be fully understood unless you were in their shoes.

I don't want to carry on the genes, let alone the name. *shudder* Grin My mother just fails to understand that. She's all "OMG WHEN ARE YOU GONNA GET A GF AND SETTLE DOWN AND HAVE KIDS?!". I'm damn glad I have an older sis who's trying to expand her family. Tongue

My brothers are both spawning, so my parent's can't use that one on me. I can't hold on to it forever. Some day I'll just have to give in and spill the beans to them.

But what about adoption? Surrogates? Don't have to have the same DNA to carry on the family name.
Or are children just too annoying? I can understand that.  Grin

personally, I don't like children all that much, at least..not now, but I'm only 17 so that isn't really a core issue



on a less light note(is this convo even light, lol?) I can't find a steampunky long coat that can be used for my steampunk vampiric war-mage D:

my mom has this coat in the closet that looks like...peacock colors, but it's very large on the torso and puffs out and doesn't look good on my body...must find...affordable long coat ._. *piddles*

I don't know about other people but personally the thought of children does very little for me. I love to have my niece and nephew visit but I love being able to give them back to their parents at the end of the day.

I am gradually coming around to the idea of havng children after voluntarily making myslf infertile since I was 15. I think it comes from me finding the actual love of my life. Before, I thought life was about fun, sex, frivolity and not caring about the consequences. Now, it still has all those things, but I am also thinking "damn, I want to mother this guys children, settle down, bake cookies......". Thats either terrible, or fantastic......

Try explaining that to my mother. Grin

Likewise. I don't mind kids, but I'm happy being able to give them back to their parents when the day's over.

I plan to live vicariously though my siblings' children, and possibly whatever future partner's children. If I end up with a husband who wants to adopt, or has kids from another marriage, I'll find out then. I'm not totally against them, but I'm not desperate for them.

Children? Goddess, no!
I simply can not find it in me to like or appreciate children, and the mere idea of being a father gives me chills.
With abit of effort I can stand my cousings kids for short periods, but more than an hour with a youngling makes me highly uncomfortable. Add to thisthat I certainly wouldn´t want to pass on my crappy genes (bad eyes, worse kidneys) to anyone.

No, children should be treated like good wine; kept out of hand until properly matured.

I have to agree with Dr Montgomery. I detest children and my partner and I are quite content and fulfilled without them. Admittedly we both have siblings who are breeding on our behalf, but at least they respect the fact that my house is a child-free zone!

I love kids! in fact my younger sister(17 Sad Angry) is having her second kid soon. My neice is a smart, energetic 22 month old. She is a joy,even if she can be a pain. Though I do wish she would learn more words. Roll Eyes

As for my self, I'll adopt or get a donner in 10 years. I was born when my mom was 28, it didn't harm me, and its a reasonable age to adopt or spawn. I like kids enough that I want to foster them eventually. My only rule for the system would be no major homophobes, I have to protect the other kids to.

I say she did it on purpose. Oh and she lied to her first childs dad making him think she was the age of consent. The second childs dad has about as much sense as she does,thakfully he's only 8-9months older then her this time. Roll Eyes

I don´t understand kids today. Eris help me, I feel like I´m a 100 years old, and I´m a few years beyond 30.
And lying about herage like that - I don´t know more about US law than what I´ve picked up online,
but wouldn´t that put the guy behind bars for statutory rape?

If my family expanded like that, it would find itself disowned by me very quickly. No offense intended, just my point of view.

 I agree look she should of been disowned for that. At the very least my aunt violet would of smacked the crap out of her, and kicked her out for a bit like she did with her oldest daughter Nicky when she got pregnant. Nicky as nutty as she is, is smart enough to have just the one.
 My mom though that's her little baby she can get away with anything. She has had two relationships this one and the last where her "partner" moved in with in a couple of weeks.  They where sleeping in the same bed, and my mom knew they were having sex to. But me when I had my friend Trevor stay over one night a couple of years ago. She had him sleep in the other room even though,  she knew we were both gay and nothing would happen. Oh and I bet she would freak if my Friend Kelly slept in my room if she stayed over.

I don't understand kids today. Eris help me, I feel like I'm a 100 years old, and I'm a few years beyond 30.

Only if mom ever decided to file charges. Then she would have to file charges against my sisters Ex-gf to(no little sis isn't bi or gay she was using her to shirk her responsibilities as a mother Angry Angry). Her Ex-gf is 20 and she was 19 and my sister 15-16 when they were together. So my mom couldn't file charges unless she wanted me to tell the officers that my mom had allowed my sister to date a girl more then 3 years her senior.
