  • My hypothetical child’s sexuality isn’t dependent on my approval and honestly isn’t any of my business beyond educating safety and being an open space to discuss what they themselves are comfortable to ask or discuss. I feel that my job would also be to educate what is and isn’t a healthy relationship. If they find any person that matches energy, reciprocates efforts, and respects and genuinely love my child, shows they can be trusted by actions matching words… I would be so happy for them.

  • Yes! If it makes her happy. If I had kids, that's what I would want for them.

  • A lot more than I would be if she announced she was gay and wanted to marry a man.

  • What if your came out as a bank robber or a murderer, would you be supportive of her? Certainly not! I don't support sin or wrong doing.

    • You consider it a sin in all cases or there are exceptions like persons being genetically suffering problems which leads them to their same sex people?

    • @ThinkerShell Sorry, don't buy it.

    • Didn't got what you mean

  • I don’t have kids. But yeah, I would support my kid is whatever they chose for themselves in life.

  • I'd support her. This is really minimum on a scale of bad things in the world, not to say that this is a bad thing. It is akin to getting chocolate instead of triple chocolate, just something unexpected.

  • It is what it is. Nothing I can do about it. I'd want her to be happy, so I'd support her 100%.

  • It would never happen, for reasons too complicated to get into, but I'd just listen. A lot would depend of how old she is, honestly. If she is 30, then what business is it of mine? But if she's only like 17, I'm going to not be very happy. But ultimately, I can't control her life, so I would need to avoid doing anything to alienate her.

  • It's a bit of a scary thought. But it wouldn't change how I feel about her.

  • I would feel less bad about it if it's daughter and not son, but it still pretty crazy so I don't know.

  • I'd give her a hug, welcome her SO, and continue to unconditionally love them.

  • Of course, I'd support her.

  • If anything I would be more shocked if she came out as straight lol.

  • yes I would be supportive of her as long as she is happy, I'm there.

  • Of course I'd support her... she's my daughter, family.

  • Of course. As long as she's happy

  • Of course

  • It would not be the optimal choice but I
    would support her and try to see that she lived her best life.

  • Hypothetically would be the word to use here, but I know what you meant.

    I'm never having kids, but in a situation where I did have a daughter, it wouldn't bother me.

    • Cool, thanks.

  • Its their life.

  • I love my child. That wouldn’t change based on her sexuality.

  • I don’t have any kids but I would love her no matter what if I did and she wanted to do that!
