15 Ways Parents Reacted To Their Homosexual Child Coming Out Of The Closet!
For some people, it can be a hard thing to discover, while others don’t mind when they find out their child is gay.
1. “My youngest brother (he’s in his early twenties) came out in the summer and expected our conservative parents to freak out, dad was on the couch, eating some food and my brother came out right then and there.
Dad let out a slow growl, then roared out and dropped all the food on the floor and ran out of the house with his fists in the air.
He ran out of the house and towards the front of the property and back, hugged my brother, told him he didn’t care and that he loved him but gay or not it didn’t mean he was exempt from mowing the grass.”
2. “I am sad to say I reacted rather badly when my daughter came out as a lesbian — I tried to high-five her.
I realized this may not have been the best way to deal with her identity crisis only when she said “What the [hell]” and my wife face-palmed.”
3. “My brother is gay, and he came out when I was 7 (he’s ten years older). Initially it made my dad feel like he was a failure, like he didn’t raise a “proper” son. He was never mad at my brother though, mostly just confused. My mom’s brother is gay, so she understood and said she had always known.
She helped my dad come to terms with everything and my brother has a great relationship with my parents and his “friends” are always welcome at family gatherings. My brother asked me the other day if I remembered when he came out and what I’d thought at the time.
I told him I had never thought about it much. He never changed and it’s just a part of who he is, not the entirety of his identity to me.”
