    I would support them in any way I could. I love my child unconditionally. I'd rather them come and tell me anything than keep it bottled up and worrying about it.

    I would tell them I loved them and was happy for them.

    I really don't care as to the sexual preference of my children, so it wouldn't be an issue.

    I'd smile and say "about time you said it aloud", and give him a big hug.

    Id also say that your still a teenager and my house rules still apply. Bedroom door always open when boyfriend around, give the safe sex lecture and tell him that if I don't like his boyfriend, it's not because I don't like you being gay, it's because I know you are worth more and can do better.

    Then I'd give him another big hug

    I honestly wouldn't care a bit, but I hope I already knew my child enough to know they were gay anyway. I wouldn't feel anything, just that they were my baby and the fact they would bring home the same sex wouldn't even be a blip on the radar. I would love them no matter who they love and would be supportive of any relationship they have, as long as that person treated them well.

    Default How would you feel...

    I would be fine with it especially since talking to DP (hypothetically) about having a child with gender identity issues. It's showed me DP would probably not take issue with it so I would not be worried for our child in that way.

    I guess some things would upset me. Not about them exactly but how life may end up more difficult for them than if they were straight... Like having babies, not being able to get married, people being absolute jerks, etc. i don't think anyone wants their children to find life difficult...

    But really, I'd be fine with it. It wouldn't really change anything.

    I hope my kids won't feel the need to discuss their sexual preferences/ get my approval.

    I think offering to throw a party would be completely inappropriate and a little creepy to be honest

    You know what, I actually don't know what I'd say or how i'd react, until it happens ...

    In my head I wouldn't care what his sexual orientation is and I will love him no matter what, but in my heart of hearts, sitting here thinking about the possibility, I'd probably be a bit sad, sad for what he'll be up against in society etc ...

    But I will still support him and love him unconditionally ...

    I'd definitely hope it'd happen like this, my niece has been bringing girls home for years, then recently 'came out' to the family, everyone was like 'errr... duh, we already knew that', lol... she was relieved.
