One Tribe by SongBird97 One Tribe by SongBird97
So this boy I know recently admitted to being gay on his facebook page.

Look. At. The. Support.

This is what makes me proud to be a part of this generation. Let's make this a generation known for love, and cast off all the hate and discrimanation.

"Let's cast amnesia, forget about all that evil, evil
The evil, that they feed ya, feed ya, remember that we're one people"

Really? Why?!

I understand you'll most likely have a later response, especially if your Dad is still freaking out.

My lips are sealed.

Freedom of Speech is written into the American Constitution. I believe it's in the 4th Amendment? Basically it says you have the right to express your opinions in a respectful manner. It's a basic right for anyone living there. I live in America, but I'm not sure about you. For someone to demand that I keep that big a part of my personal quiet... Well I wouldn't allow it. Even if it was my Parent.

If you possibly can, talk to him. Get him to understand. It may seem difficult but it's worth the trouble. Things will be better in the end.

yay :3

yes, I DO live in the US. and it bugs me that my dad has that much control over my life >.> it gets to the point that I CAN'T talk to him without being intimidated at all. although he denies it, saying he cares about me and all, he IS acting like a homophobe

c:

This is why I enjoy my Best friends' Mom's approach to sexuality; You're still a kid, and your still figuring things out. You should have total support until you know exactly what you want.

My Mom isn't as supportive so I generally keep anything about it to my self.

My advice is to just be comfortable with yourself, your Dad can't hate you for that. You can love who you want and he should be ok with it, even if he doesn't necessarily support it. I'm not saying to get a girlfriend and be hugging and kissing on each other in front of him, but if you want to hold hands he should get the flip over it. Any hetrosexual (girl-boy) couple has that right, and you do too.
