My 15 year old son just said to me he was gay. I'm conflicted on throwing him out of the house or letting him stay. What should I do?
Support him to the fullest extent, while secretly tormenting the shit out of him online. wait 3 years until he's 18 drop bombshell on his ass by telling him that was you and then kick him out.
Look, he didn't choose to be gay and kicking him out is literally forfeiting your own responsibility as a parent. You're supposed to take care of your child, and love them, not kick them out because they don't live up to your expectations -- not at goddamn 15!
You didn't choose to be straight. He didn't choose to be gay. Do your damned job take care of your kid.
I would be very disappointed if my son would be gay. Which is why I'd make sure to have atleast more than one son to play it safe.
If he was gay, I wouldn't throw him out. He might become pedolunch where old faggots prey on him, that would be disgraceful to the family name. Do your best to raise him well. This gayness might even be a phase.
Even contemplating throwing him out for being gay, something completely out of his control, means you never really loved him you piece of trash. I've noticed people with shitty parents tend to be gay and bi more often. Karma sure is a faggot ;)
Once he's 18 kick him out so he can rid himself of his worthless parent.
Honestly if you care for your son at all let him stay until he's 18
What do you HONESTLY think will happen to a 16 year old living on the street? Nothing good, buddy
Also he'll develop (even more) emotional problems going his whole life thinking that you don't care for him
Just tell him no faggy shit in your house and have him ready to leave at 18 if that's what you really want.
Otherwise I'd say you're pretty heartless, man. It'll be one of those things you'll regret as an old man but it'd be too late to fix
>what is adoption
Youre in a tough spot. Im muslim, so I get the easy road and can abandon my child because he abandoned god. But if I werent religious Id probably wait till he was 18 and pretty much only support him as little as possible so that he has what he needs to survive.
If you kick him out or make a big deal he'll either become a male prostitute or go total fag mode for attention you just have to try and change him and tell him you want him out as soon as possible
>I don't like my son being gay so I'll kick him out at 15 and let him live as a gay prostitute in a homeless shelter
>lalala if I close my eyes it didn't happen
Has anyone told you you're a shit father? If you actually care about your son despite hating faggotry give him the tools to make something out of his life and push him to move out without being a big ol bitch about it. Sounds like you're the one with something up his ass.
>Sounds like you're the one with something up his ass.
Let him stay
Tell him you love him
And STOP BEING A HUGE SHITBAG OF A FATHER.
I'm the parent of an 18 yr old son, and while he's not gay (afaik), I'd love him just as much if he was, although I'd worry about him A LOT more (just based on what I know from having gay friends when I was younger).
He's your son, no matter WHAT, so you'd better love him, you're not getting any younger, pal. If you alienate him now, you'll regret it when you're both older, and that's no way to end life.
Is everyone in this thread just going to completely ignore the fact that "my son" doesn't exist? This was all a ruse to get replies.
Whatever, carry on arguing about my non-existent son.
Gay people should be respected in society just like anyone else. It's not like they're doing anything wrong, or doing anyone any harm.
I'm bi, and I don't expect everyone to support me being open to dating men, but I do expect people to be intelligent and civil when they speak to me, as should anyone else.
The fact that you're a bigot doesn't mean you have to be an asshole about it.
>my dad recently had a conversation with me where he told me that gay people should keep their relationships secret and not hold hands in public or anything
>seriously, fuck that, if I had a boyfriend I'd hold his hand all I want
You need to get over yourself. I support the LGBT community 100% but you need to realise that bigots exist and the world isn't a fairy tale. Morons and bigot will exist until the end of the human race. Be realistic and ignore them.
you don't have to like him being gay, you've got the right to your opinion
but how big of a deal is it for you?
I mean you would you rate it compared to stealing cars or dealing hard drugs?
anyway the kid is 15, there is a lot of pressure on kids to be gay; a lot outgrow it and for some it's just another way of breaking away from society
I know gays, don't like them much; but I know them
some are 100% gay, can't drink a glass of water without thinking it's cum
some make eyes at other dudes in bars, but are straight for all other purposes
if your son has an honest family he's more likely to become a normal guy, f you cast him out "being gay" is really all he'll have; and he'll stick to it
Why would you punish him for something that is biological. People don't get to choose what they are physically attracted too. I can't just change my sexual preference to fat people because I want too.
>this triggers the conservative, science student ,priest, social theorist and psychologist
I respect it is your decision. I guess you might be very upset right now. Anyway you will stop being upset. Think if you will regret in the future kicking out your son. You do not want to live with guilt over taking a rush decisition.
If I were you I would wait till he finishes high school.
Also note that even though he is what you expected, he can still make you proud by being a succesful person.
OP he's your son and you're the one to give him life. He's another human being that has come alive because of you and you should take responsibility for his actions as long as he grows up to be able to make them him self.
I personally would feel the same way, disappointment in my son but even more in my self. I'm the one who was suppose to put him on the right track and show him the way of life but I failed. I had 1 job to raise him but I failed my self.
Even if I were to make a mistake like this in raising him this way and allowing him to follow this direction, he strictly would feel extremely personal about this decision and this believe. He's probably very sensitive about it and wants his fathers support in this if anything from all.
I've spend so much time raising him (15 years!) so I won't let this be put to waste. I would be in his support since that's what he wants, it's not worth putting everything that went well to waste. He is my son and I care for him.
This is how I'd feel about it OP and I think would make sense to care for him either way. This is a life lesson for you and your son, how will you take on this big lesson of life. You have 1 job and that is to raise your son that you gave life to, will you continue to take on this challenge and not fail on your job or will you simply take the easy way out and give up?
>born this way hurr durr accept your faggot spawn for who he is inside desu
Read up on the connection between getting diddled as a kid and homosexuality in later life. I think the two of you need to have a talk, OP.
Your job as a parent is to raise your son in the best way you can. Whatever problems you run into, it is your responsibility to continue and raise your son in the right way. You as a parent is responsible for raising him correctly and making sure that he has a good path and direction of life. His gay decision of life is part of the challenge of raising a son. Your responsibility remains there, you shouldn't be the weak father and simply give up. That simply means you failed your job.
No, of course not. Everyone in this thread is just baiting. Just ignore them.
