I wouldn’t mind, as long as they were happy :)

It really makes no difference to me as long as they are happy in themselves, whatever form that takes.

However, I'd be secretly devastated if they were trans. They'd be ostracised by our extended families. I've also known a few and they've all struggled with MH, acceptance and employment. I just don't want to see them struggle like that.

Gay people are born that way. It isnt someones “fault” or failure as a parent. That is very judgemental

If they were gay I would love them just the same. If they said they were transgender I would tell them it's not a thing and that just because you are a girl who likes wearing jeans , having short hair and no make up doesn't mean you are a boy in a girls body.

Please do some research before talking about transgender to your children.

Gay, I just want them to be happy, and on a selfish level I’d hope they could still find a way ( and want kids) much like I’d be a little sad if they were straight and didn’t want kids or couldn’t have them.
But for them I’d only care they’re happy.

Transgender? If they were happy I’d be fine but I wouldn’t agree they are a boy in a girls body.
Iv always encouraged my kids to wear and do what they want.
My daughter had pink hair at 6.
I just don’t agree that people are born in the wrong body I think they just like what they like. And that’s fine.

I would be concerned and worried about bullying and judgemental cunts damaging my child. I'd want to protect them from any negativity.

My goal as a parent is to raise healthy, happy, well balanced children who are community minded and contribute to society. So sexuality would be a non issue.

I think there's a good chance my daughter might prefer girls and I couldn't care less, I do worry about how other people will treat her and adversity she may face though.

ANSWER

I would prefer they weren’t but they’re my child so I’d always be there for them.

As long as they're happy and in a healthy and loving relationship, why would I care about their partners genitals? That's pretty weird.
I still want grandchildren though. So either they have babies some how, or they buy a very cute dog that I can dote on. Either way, someone will be wearing knitted booties.

Fine. Hopeful they could talk to me about it. My only fears would be if others bully or stigmatized them for it and my selfish fear would be what if I don't get grandbabies but there's different ways to become a parent these days too so I'm sure that would be ok

ANSWER

I just want my kids to be happy. If they’re happy, I’m happy.

ANSWER

I honestly couldn’t care less.
I just hope that one day if that time comes my child isn’t scared to be open about it with me, I would support them 100%.
