My 8th grade daughter told me about a new support group that was starting in her school. This group was presented by the school's counselor and it is for those that support, or are, LGBT. I am so proud of the school counselor and joyful for those that find support in this group. What gender you love doesn't matter to me. And it shouldn't matter to anyone. My husband and I have brought our children up with 'Love Is Love'. What truly does matter in a relationship: Kindness - Synonym: humanity, generosity, charity, sympathy, compassion, tenderness. No abuse - verbal/physical - Syonym: ill-use, maltreat, injure, harm, hurt. If you are in a relationship and they are kind to you and you are kind to them, that's wonderful. If you are in a relationship and the kindness is shared and there is also no abuse, that is sublime. I've been asked "what if your daughter told you she was gay?"
