I have been asked this question far too many times already,"Eugene, would you accept it,if one day your son come running to you and telling you that he is a gay?".............
There was this headline,gracing the front page in almost all of the Chinese press last Saturday, featuring a wedding of Thomas 29 and Apple 27 of which happened to be the same sex marriage said to be the first in this country.
Some of us may curse our tongues out, lashing at them for decaying the society, for eroding the moral values and sadly some of us may even reprimand the parents for allowing this wedding to take place.
On the other hand, some of us may put our hands up, heralding them as heroes for their courage to come out in the open and no longer need to love each other in the dark, unnerving the fear of social stigma.
As for me, I am neither against nor approve of such kind of union, i don't need to, for Thomas 29 and Apple 27 know what it best for them, simply because both of them are an ADULT who has the right to choose their own live and if I were to know them personally, I would also extend my sincere blessing to them.
In retrospect, after all that has been said about Thomas and Apple, I must say that I really respect the parents of this couple, accepting them unconditionally, going through those hard times with them,(you know the scorns, the unkind words and the finger pointing and the gossips from friends and particularly relatives), to this I must take my hat off for to parents of Thomas and Apple.
Back to my question at the beginning of this post,I would be happy at least my son could RUN to me telling me he is a gay, instead of telling others,secondly I would, as a father to teach them to guide them the best that I can and to submit them to the Good Lord and when they are ADULT, they are to choose their own lives..............................
P/S : Sometimes happiness does not entail who is wrong, who is right
