Hi all, I recently posted in Sub Abuse forum about my daughter's new revelation that she "likes boys and girls" and now has a girlfriend. She DID have a boyfriend for about a year and a half up until a few months ago. I have consulted with one of my gay friends (from AA) and she posed any interesting point to me that I am still bothered by...she asked me if I thought there was something about husband's and my relationship that may have caused easy child to feel more comfortable/safe in a relationship with another girl rather than a boy. I don't know what to think of this. My marriage is very "old school" traditional. I stayed home and raised the kids, husband worked, coached football, etc. husband is a Homophob and easy child's "coming out" has caused alot of friction in the home life situation recently...not easy child's fault, just husband see's homosexuality as perverse, going against G-d, etc. He is really not handling this well at all and easy child is angry at dad for his attitudes. I talked with my hairdresser last week about all of this and he said that girls are more "sensual than sexual". My concern was overnight stays between easy child and her new friends. He said with boys it could turn into an orgy but with girls it probibly would not. Anyway....what do you all think about my relationship with husband contributing to easy child "coming out". I know this is probibly a bit contraversial even my hairdresser said that he believes it is not strickly genetic but goes both ways..."a sexual preference as well as genetic". Am wondering too, how many of your husbands are "homophobs" like mine. Has anyone else had a child '"ome out" and admit their new sexual preference to you"? I despise the judgementalness coming from my husband on easy child. He is taking it all too personally...as if easy child did this to him "knowing how he has felt about homosexuality her whole life". Also wanted to share some pics of my new grandbaby Joey with those of you who haven't seen him yet...http://www.flickr.com/photos/13271215@N05/ Thanks ahead of time for your thoughts...this is really difficult for our family right now since I am on "easy child's side" and husband is "out in the weeds" though he says I am. lovemysons...and my daughter too!
