I'm not a spambot
Well, you can either accept your son is gay, or you can push him away from a partner whom you consider as being not all that bad because you're ashamed of their sexual preferences.
Guess which track will eventually cause your relationship with your own son to vaporise?

Sad.But, he will reap what he sows, then maybe he'll learn.

Is this the same Anonymous, because this looks like a pro gay rights one.

No One In Particular
When your son starts pushing you out of his life for punishing him this way, which can definitely happen, as sad as it is, don't be surprised. Instead, look back at this, read up on homosexuality and its ill effects on the average family lifestyle (hint: there are none), grow a little more enlightened and accepting, and try to encourage him instead of repressing his feelings...
...ah, who am I kidding, (s)he'll never read this, anyway. Wonder how long his/her son'll tolerate this.

This one is really weird, because it feels as if they half-realise how irrational they're being but they aren't strong-willed enough to overcome their knee-jerk revulsion towards homosexuality. I suppose you could call it doublethink.

Well at least you are being honest to total strangers.

I am heartened by the fact that you have to "whisper" this anonymously. I think it shows that you are ashamed of being ashamed of your son. We can only hope that (1) you will grow out of it, and (2) your son still speaks to you.

You've taken the first step: you're being honest with yourself.
Now be honest with your son and with the rest of the world, or you're going to lose your son. What will your shame be worth then?

That's just...sad on so many levels...

You're pathetic, any parent that would be ashamed of their child because they were gay, straight, bi, asexual or whatever else is pathetic.
I hope that you enjoy loosing your son.

You should be more ashamed of the fact you can't accept your son being gay. It shows your failure as a parent

Well, hopefully this is the first step towards you getting the fuck over your irrational bigotry and supporting your child. There's at least some self-awareness here. You still have a chance. Please, work on your issues so that you can continue to have a relationship with your kid. You're already part way there.

Your son may be secretly ashamed of you for being a bigot.
3/20/2017 5:26:40 AM
So in other words, you'll never be accepting of anyone your son brings home unless they're female. You need to grow up and realize that's just not going to happen.

The first step is admitting that you have a problem. Hopefully, you'll soon figure out that your son's preference doesn't lessen him in any way, & that you are the one with the issues, not him. But I doubt it. People like you are notoriously slow learners.

At least this person seems to know they're wrong.

I'm going to be an optimist here because I think that this does show some hope.
