Being in the closet while in a relationship with someone can be damaging. Straighten that out before hand.
I have the nothing against homosexuality, but I recently heard about a married man coming out and leaving his wife and kids for someone.
That's a bit messed up. Imagine how those kids must feel.
@LT PUNK ROCKET, that happened to someone I know, but it was her mom that came out.
They turned out fine, although her younger sister could use a little humbling. She thinks she knows EVERYTHING.
@LT PUNK ROCKET, right on. No issue with homosexuality but don't let your insecurities make you selfish.
@LT PUNK ROCKET, I'm hoping this is a far less frequent occurrence these days, as homosexuality becomes more normalized (for lack of a better word). I think the issue in years past has been people who grow up in very strict, "traditional" families who disapprove of that kind of lifestyle, and so someone will repress that part of themselves, and like any other toxic behavior, they'll excuse it and dismiss it, and set little requirements for when they'll finally be ok with themselves. "Maybe I just need a boyfriend/girlfriend" "just get married" "just have kids", and they think that each of these milestones will cement their status as a heterosexual, but it's never really enough. I'm not saying it's ok, and I'm not saying we shouldn't feel sorrow for the families who are torn apart in many of these cases, but we have to understand that, in some instances, these are people who grew up fearing for their lives and their safety if they didn't hide who they were from the world.
@Berntley, Furthermore, can we at least acknowledge that this sort of thing is absolutely no different from how many, many heterosexual relationships/marriages end? Ultimately, you're leaving your significant other for someone else, because you don't love them anymore. Just because the slighted party decides to be more devastated because their spouse turned out to be gay, even though it should, on some level, be a little more understandable, since it's really the person coming to terms with who they really are, rather than just deciding to quit trying at their current relationship, because things got hard and other women were easier.
@LT PUNK ROCKET, I completely agree with your statement but I have to point out
I read "I have the nothing against homosexuality" in Starfire's voice.
@LT PUNK ROCKET, I know of a similar situation but there was no other person and the wife divorced the man and took her child. The kid is doing well enough but doesn't talk to the father at all.
But he didn't get trips
