The purpose of this discussion is about explaining to children about LGBTQ+ acceptance with the aim of eradicating homophobia in the world.

Some parents explain to their children that some people are heterosexual while other people are LGBTQ+ and that being LGBTQ+ is a natural phenomenon. These parents tell to their children that “in life, some boys prefer girls, some girls prefer boys, some boys prefer boys, some girls prefer girls”. These children grow up accepting LGBTQ+ people as they are. Also, those who are LGBTQ+ are not afraid to tell their parents openly that they prefer boys or girls since a young age; they are free to decide for themselves as opposed to being forced to pretend that they are heterosexual for fear of social prejudices.

      Short and to the point. I wish all parents were open to discussing LGBTQ+ topics with their kids but unfortunately that isn’t always the case. If kids were taught that all love is good, there wouldn’t be so much hate and prejudice in the world. This article makes me wishful that this was always the case. However, my realistic side makes me a little sad to think of all the kids who are being taught that LGBTQ+ topics are things to be hated and feared. That’s sad for heterosexual children and deadly for LGBTQ+ kids who won’t have a safe place to express who they are and to know that how they feel is alright.

      Children are the ones who are going to be molding the future and deciding what direction their world will be going in.

      A beautiful write up. Unfortunately, a majority of the members of the LGBTQ+ community are afraid to come out because of their parents. They are scared to lose the support and love of their parents. I wish parents understand and educate their children from a very young age about sexual orientation. It will not only give confidence to LGBTQ+ kids to embrace their sexual orientation but also promote respect and acceptance for diverse sexual orientations.
