I may lose followers, even friends for this but here I go.
Let’s say you give birth to an awesome kid, he or she is amazing, funny, brilliant, talented and a precious gift to you. They have a few quirks but once you get to know them people realize they are lucky to know them. It is wrong to expect that they be allowed to grow up happy, healthy and loved?
Each and every day I teach acceptance.
Usually in the form of my son has autism; accept my kid for who he is. He was born this way.He is just him, a happy, flappy, humming, go up and touch you without asking, kind of person.
I expect you to treat him with kindness, and accept he doesn’t do it to harm you in any way shape or form.
Now let turn this into not autism.It doesn’t matter if your child has autism, bipolar disorder, ADHD, downs syndrome, Tourette’s, eczema, if they are gay, trans, bi or whatever else. You still want them to be loved and accepted.
I am sorry if this is hard for you to understand. I expect acceptance no matter who my kids love, no matter how strange they act and most importantly.
We all deserve happiness no matter the form it comes in, as long as it doesn’t hurt someone else.
None of my kids has said they are gay, or trans, however if they did I would love them just as much as I do now. Though if the one of my boys wanted to wear dresses he better at least ask me to go shopping with him hehe.
