Quote# 82865

My guess - my hope - is that the parents recognize this perversity as more destructive than shooting heroin, and out of love and concern say something like:

"Son/daughter, we love you, and we hate to see you choose this path. We've tried to help you overcome this problem, and will always be here to help some more. But we can not and will not permit this to go on while you live under our roof. We may not be able to prevent you from destroying your life, but we will not let you destroy the rest of this family in the process."

It's not a choice, and if you can't accept your children the way they are then you don't deserve to be a parent.

No matter how I look at it, people who grow up with parents like this have got to be some of the most unlucky people on the planet.

Its not like you can just say fuck you and move on and forget them. their your family, & not many people have the balls to respond in kind when its your own parents feeding you bullshit like this.

you know what tears up a fucking family? this bullshit. blame the kids for being gay all you want, but they were just being truthful. your the one who had to be a fucktard and completely and utterly reject them. THAT is what destroys a family.

"Son/daughter, we hate you because you've discovered something about yourself we cannot accept. We've tried and failed to force you to conform to our outdated standards of sexuality and we'll always be here to push more ex-gay therapy on you. But, you disgust us, get out. We may not be able to make you obey our idiotic whims but we can make you understand your parents are shitty, shitty assholes who deserve neither your love, respect, or honor.


7/30/2011 12:28:37 PM


You want more people to be pricks like yourself?

7/30/2011 12:31:52 PM


So the kid moves out, and remains gay. I'm not seeing where this is helping your cause any, O Foolish One.

Homosexuality isn't any more destructive than heterosexuality. The analogy with doing drugs makes no sense.

Of course, apparently fundie ideology is destructive if it tears families apart.

How is this CTSTDT?

7/30/2011 1:05:58 PM


The only thing that's going to destroy your kids life, is throwing them out at 16-17 for being gay.

How is being gay worse than using heroin?

7/30/2011 1:20:07 PM


A guy from my high-school class was thrown out by his bigot parents when he declared his homosexuality, they disinherited him and started to tyrannize and bully him. With the whole spectrum from emotional blackmail up to open threats.

He did the best possible revenge: He got a court order forbidding them any contact, studied engineering, has a good-paying job now, and has married a really good-looking hispanic (same-sex marriage AND interracial marriage ... oh the HORROR for his parents!). He is living a happy, fulfilled life, both with a lot of fun and responsibility.

The only persons that have destroyed their lifes are his parents, who still reproach themselves how ever such "deadly sin" could have entered their family. But thats their problem. My friend simply doesn't care about his bigot parents anymore. They have destroyed their lifes, and have not managed to destroy my friends life.

Thats the best revenge you can do to such crappy people: Ban them from your life completely, and choose to have a happy life instead.

I love you so much I'm kicking you out of the house entirely so I don't have to deal with you anymore.

Can't you feel the love?

7/30/2011 1:47:56 PM


Wow, what a condescending jackass. :/

7/30/2011 1:58:05 PM


Lear must have pissed himself laughing when you regaled him with this one, Fool. Truly, you have a knack for the nonsensical.

7/30/2011 2:02:16 PM


Homosexuality is only destructive to families because you maintain the prejudice against gay people. If you actually learn to accept your son for who he is, then you'll discover that absolutely nothing will change in your family.

So it's not homosexuality that destroys families, but the bigoted, hate filled reactions from fundamentalists. But you won't accept the fact that its your beliefs, not your son, that are destroying your family, so you just project it all onto him.

Christian love, doesn't it just make you sick?

7/30/2011 2:46:10 PM



It isn't. It's plain old FSTDT.

7/30/2011 3:01:39 PM


This shit boils my blood. What tears up the family is the fucking ignorant hatred and rejection from supposed parents. Yeah, no, you don't love your child one damn bit, you hate their very existence.

I'm queer and thank my lucky stars that my parents kept their thoughts to themselves, and would love to raise a gay or lesbian child with all the love and devotion a child deserves from their guardian.

We love you. Now fuck off.

7/30/2011 3:12:38 PM


Homosexuality is not a matter of choice! If you do not accept this then you are unlikely to be able to give your children unconditional love. So much for your parenting. You are a failure as a parent. You proabably should never have had children to start with. The child cannot but suffer severely, psychologically with cruel and idiotic parents such as Lears Fool. What a well chosen pseudonym!

Actually, it is NOT EVEN CLOSE to being as destructive as shooting heroin.

First, gay sex has no chance of getting someone pregnant (unless a gay man decides to have sex with a woman for some reason, but that's beside the point.)

Second, while gay men are more likely to spread STDs than heterosexuals, the difference is very small. And lesbians have even less of a chance than heterosexuals.

Finally, what happened to your "family values"? Despite religious differences, you should try to make it work. My grandmother raised all her kids Catholic, my uncle became a Protestant. My grandmother was disappointed at first, but she still loved him, and even went to the Protestant church to watch her grandson get baptised.

especially since he has a well paying job as you said, I bet once parents turn 70 they're beating on his door to let them move in so he can take care of them

So what you're saying is to kick your kids out of the house if they're gay. Good to see that Christian love I hear about so much.

I'm reminded of that joke:

Father: So what exactly do you gays do?
Gay son: You know all those things you wish Mom would do but doesn't?

7/30/2011 3:52:34 PM


How about loving and accepting them since they aren't hurting others. Also how is it more destructive than heroin?

7/30/2011 4:10:09 PM


My guess - my hope - is that the parents recognize this as nothing they can change, and out of love and concern say something like: "Gee, we're sorry we probably won't get grandchildren, but, hey, we love you anyway, so why don't you and your, uh, what do we call him/her? ... your 'friend'? ... come to dinner next Sunday?"
