The Long Process Of Coming Out
# 91 : Sunday 23-1-2005 @ 20:20
I've heard it said that it's easier for mothers to accept their son's gay sexuality much easier than a daughter's and vice versa for fathers and daughters. I doubt that there is much research to back this assertion up, though.

I Have to agree with you there Jupiterkid.
My dad has accepted it much better than my mum.

@Happyhead Do you normally spend your birthday with your family?
yeah its a tradition we always do and if i didnt go home it would be the first time it has ever happened that somewhere wasn't there from family - eek! Thanks for the link too!

@Dirha Did your family tell you your g/f wasn't welcome or are you thinking thats how they might react?
Yhey didn't say straight out she wasn't welcome - they said it is too soon and its easier on my friends because i told them first and not her! Thats still a sore issue

@jupiterKid - I'm not really from the "country" as in the rural sense. the "social group" my parents would be apart of think its bad if someone's kid doesnt go to college so if a kid is gay I don't know though really I'm just guessing because its so difficult to talk about the issue

i totally agree that dads accept it better when its their daughter, i think because mum's don't understand why you would like a girl?! Just my opinion.

Thanks everyone again though for the thoughts!

I'm 25, all the friends and work people know... just haven't gotten the courage to say it to the family. I'm sure they know, it's just how do you verbalise something that your terrified to say out loud to people who are supposed to love your unconditionally.
