LGBT 问题

Need advice...

Hi :) I need some advice...
你 see, my step-dad is against being gay (he's kinda old so he was brought up with gay = bad policy), and it's annoying me.
Now, I'm straight (I think), but I happen to support gay rights and I tend to watch a read stuff about gay people (like, my favourite couple in the world is a fictional gay couple)
Now, I know I can't convince him to 爱情 it, but I want to try to get him to be 更多 open-minded about it, 或者 at least get him to stop making faces when I watch the T.V 显示 欢乐合唱团 或者 the musical RENT.
Please help me?

LGBT 答案

Cinders said:
你 can't change people's opinions (or at least, if 你 want to try, be in for the long haul, but I wouldn't recommend it with family), but 你 can change their reactions. If you're comfortable enough, I'd suggest sitting down with your step dad and explaining to him how it bothers 你 when he has that attitude towards something 你 enjoy. Tell him you're not trying to change his views, but that he doesn't have to watch the same shows that 你 do, and 你 would appreciate it if he didn't make any "faces" (if 你 will) when 你 do, 或者 tell him 你 do.

Even though you're family, and care about each other, 你 ARE two different people and are allowed to have differing viewpoints. Tell him that 你 respect his, and all that 你 ask is that he respect yours.

Thanks :) And yeah, I know I can't change his opinion :P It would've been a 迷失 cause from the start

lots of people of an older generation have the same feelings as your step-dad, just talk to him and tell him that the way he reacts to gay people is upsetting for you.

i think that 你 should tell him to respect your opinion and stop making a big deal about something like this EVERY time it comes up. He doesn't have to beleive in gay rights and stuff BUT he should still respect your opinion and stop making faces.

P.S. RENT is AWESEOME!!
P.P.S. KURT RULES!!!! (so does Blaine!)
