Actually, Firerangel, on re-reading your post I think I was being a little over-defensive... something I've accused others of several times... such are the ways of karma.
Is just that I've gotten so accustomed to having fiya burned on me, or being called a faggot, simply for bringing this subject up. I think it should be talked about like any other issue.
Check this; if I am bringing up MY youth under MY guidance, then no way in hell could anyone "influence" them to be gay, seen? Just like no one could influence them to have an inferiority complex based on the color of their skin. If anyone could, I wouldn't be doing my job as a parent.
However, if when I have youths one of them DOES turn out to be gay or lesbian... I can't say I would like it, but I wouldn't disown them or nothing. Would still be my youth and I would still love him or her. Seen?
