Years ago, my son (about 13 years old) and I were watching Phil Donahue. He was performing gay marriages that day and it was the first time I saw 2 black men kiss!!! I was in one room and my son in the other, I insisted that he watch. Afterwards, we discussed it, talking about all the possible things that could come up in such a discussion. My main point was to assure him that there was nothing we could not talk about together, even though he was begging to end the conversation and carrying on as though he was getting sick at even thinking of such things. Anyway ... I'm wondering ... would you disown your child if they told you they were gay/lesbian? Is there anything that your child could do, that would make you disown them, and if so what?
