Coming out gay dating
In the end, all we could do was let him know our love for him, exactly as he is. One afternoon, my wife called and said, “The school called, and they’re worried about Jimmy, and he needs to talk to us.”I couldn’t understand. He’s an A student, popular and respected by his teachers.
It was a 45-minute ride, and I was worried that something had happened to my son. When I got to the school, I went to the room where the guidance counselor and youth minister were waiting with Jimmy.
Equality takes courage, it worries me that too many people in this world lack the balls to stand up for what is right.
How do you react when your son or daughter tells you he’s gay? We collected three stories from parents whose teens have come out to them.
We started to notice that our once sweet, funny, engaged boy was becoming sullen and withdrawn. He was worried about us and how we would handle the “news”. Some people say that a mother knows when their child is gay.
And in all of this, that was our biggest concern: how cruel and insensitive others would be to him because of who he is.
Today, a skywriter wrote “Vote No” in the skies above Sydney to protest against gay people getting married. Anti-gay television ads are also starting to run in Australia in an attempt to “defeat the upcoming same-sex marriage proposal” which will be voted on in a few weeks.
Anti-gay campaigners blasted “the assault on morals” by same-sex marriage and begged people to “vote no” on it.
While these parents love and support their children, they do worry about how others will treat them and are hopeful that they will be accepted in the larger world.
My son, William, is a 23-year-old college graduate living and working in Toronto, Canada.
However, something he saw today really shook him emotionally, and he simply could not hold it in much longer.
