Don't hold back, tell me how you really feel. After all it is all about feelings, what is right for the child is irrelevant.
Do you have any gay children? If not, then what you think you would or wouldn't do in this case is just speculation and irrelevant. It is amazing how pious one can be when they themselves have not been tested.
But do please enlighten me as to what you would have done and if you can, do try not to make it sound like a leftist gay pamphlet on the subject.
This should be interesting.
Actually it has nothing to do with gay or straight in this case. It is simply a matter of a parent who is so much of a control freak as to deprive thier own child of the joy of parenthood. Your daughter would have been justified in moving away from you, birthing a beautiful child, and never even telling you about it. What really steames me is the self satisfied undertone you use when you tell your agonizing story. My prayers are with your daughter and the rest of your family whom I presume you have bullied as well.
