    Would you shun him or accept him?

    I would tell him that I loved him no matter his sexual orientation and that he would always have my support in life. I would tell him I am proud that he has the courage to be his true self no matter the social implications...


    .. Then i'd tell him to wipe that load off his face before he goes out in public.

    I would accept him. Not my place to tell someone who they can or can't love. If it's between two consenting adults they can make that decision. My only concern would be what he might face from people who wouldn't be tolerant of that lifestyle. But he has been raised to know that decisions have consequences so he would know it might not be easy out there.

    Depends how flamboyant he is.

    Annoying assholes are annoying assholes.

    Period.

    i'd accept him
    and then i'd try to drink myself to death at an accelerated pace


    though if your kid is gay and you've been paying attention then you likely had some idea he might like dudes
    so you should be prepared for it and all that

    There is no option. If you do anything but accept him for what he is, you're an asshole and should stab yourself in the eye.

    Honestly, as long as he's a good kid, I could care less who or what he wants in life.

    Maybe he could be my stylist. :c

    Not a big deal but I'd privately worry that he is going to live a more difficult life.
