(Yahoo)   Good morning parents, I'm gay. I've wanted to tell you for a long time. I thought doing it this way would be a piece of cake. I hope you still love me. I mean, it's hard not to love someone who baked you a cake   (news.yahoo.com) divider line 163

Well, it was made by a lesbian. If a gay guy had made it, it would have been a tasteful, yet whimsical cake of fabulous design, with fondant and adorned with edible sparkly flowers.

If my son turned out to be gay, which I doubt, because he loves guns and RPS and roblox. But lets say he did. I would hope that he would come to me sooner rather than later so he didn't spend years hiding something and feeling upset and disappointed at himself.

Just how much does he like guns? That could be a tell-tale sign.

The mom's all crying because she's a woman and that's what they do, then the dad comes in and cries because not only does he get baked goods but he knows his daughter won't ever be getting knocked up before she can support herself.

Plus, the cake thing.

JerseyTim: That cake looks terrible.


Flavor is much more important to me, as I've had some terrific-looking but poor-tasting cake in my day. It's a layer cake (bonus frosting) and there's no fondant. It's no Cake Wreck, I guess is what I'm trying to say.

Nothing beats a cream pie... depending on whose oven they are baking it in.

Dear Lesbo Daughter-

We already knew your were a carpet-muncher, and the fact that you can't bake a proper cake proves it. Maybe you should stick to pie...

I hope, if any of my kids are gay, that coming out isn't even a thing.
Someone would tell them a story about coming out to their parents and my kid would be like, "What? Why weren't they involved enough in your life to know what was up with you?"

Maybe custom build a chopper, that would have been enough, wouldnt even need a note.

How the hell do people not know their kids are gay? Thats an epic level of denial or just plain ignoring whatever your kid talks about day to day. If they are ignoring their kids that much then why would the kids think their parents would care if they are gay?

The simplest way to ensure that is to tell him in a very forward manner that you will love him regardless of who he loves- whether its a girl or boy. My parents said that to me when I was around ten or so, and I had no problem coming out to them when I was 14.

My step-son is gay and last Thanksgiving he came back home from college with a few gay and lesbian friends in tow.

None of them had anywhere to go because each of their parents had rejected them so badly that they were not even welcome home for Thanksgiving.

I really prefer family gatherings and so was (internally) not excited about having a bunch of strangers for the holiday. But I was not about to turn them away. These were all really good kids and you can tell that it burned them down to their soul that they could not even visit their own parents. My wife talked to one privately about his family problems and his eyes were red and bloodshot afterwards. When he hugged my wife you know it was a surrogate hug for all of the ones that had been denied to him by whatever farked-in-the-head asshole of a mother he has.

There is a special place in hell reserved and waiting for the parents of these kids. They were good kids and deserve better.

That's really nice of them! But I wonder if they said that because they suspected you were gay before you knew yourself. I've had a couple of gay friends (a minority for sure, but still) who said their parents were totally unsurprised. I often think that we don't hide things from our parents nearly as well as we'd like to think we do.

They build a mental picture of their kid (sometimes with the help of religion or societal expectations) and only see things that agree with it. Then they get upset when they have to give up the comfortable lie. They also somehow think that the kid being gay somehow reflects badly on them as parents, when it is how they take it that reflects badly on them as parents.

That's just as cool, if not cooler of them. That would mean that they were paying enough attention to their kid to realize that he or she was clearly gay, be cool with it, and pre-emptively support their child. More coming outs should be this easy. I've seen a few turn into real catastrophes.

Really she baked a cake when coming out. She should have just made them a hair pie and then eaten it in front of her parents. Or maybe something a little more gay pridish like this

I used to play 'war' with my My Little Ponies and my Transformers as a kid. Sometimes my G.I. Joes would use my Ponies as battle-mounts. And just for fun, Strawberry Shortcake would parachute onto the battle field for extra plastic death.

My mother to this day says she had no idea.

Lots of parents dislike thinking about their kids' sexuality in any context. Plenty of LGBTQQA[...] folks start off dating opposite-sex partners and plenty of straight kids don't have boyfriends/girlfriends.

Hell my gal-pal just got engaged to her girlfriend at age 36. She was married to a man before, and dated all sorts of guys when we were roommates. She even loved hetero sex enough to complain to me when a new suitor was bad at it.

this.  but i imagine it's awkward to ask that question to your kids.  my parents asked me and i wasn't.  yep, awkward.

It's times like that when I love my mother so much. She had gay friends, morbidly obese friends, Asian and black friends and she always made sure that I knew everyone was totally equal. As a result I've never looked or though about a gay person as any different than I am and the gay friends I have make me better for being their friends. I would have missed out on some great friendships and whats worse is that I would have been raised with hate and all that anger that comes with it. No thanks!
