True or false: one is homophobic if s/he respects lgbt people but does not want his or her kids to have homosexual roles?
Do you think you can have that kind of mentality too?

No, but if your child does end up being a homosexual, you have to respect 'em as well
- AlexanderLv 51 month ago
No, you're not homophobic for not wanting your kids to be gay - as long as, like you said, s/he respects LGBT+ people.
However, in the event that his/her child does turn out gay, s/he still has to respect the kid :-)

homosexual roles?? What is that?
It is always the hardest when it is your child.

Being homosexual is not a role. I hoped my son would not be in part because I lived through the 80s and saw the discrimination my friends faced. That doesn't mean I don't accept him and love him any less than if he were straight.

In that case I would say there is homophobic tendencies.
Let me explain.
Lets say you say you have no problem with black people.
Its just that you dont want any in your family.
You see the two opinions conflict.

WTF is a 'homosexual role'?
- Bee V2Lv 61 month ago
Yes thats homophobic. Its implying that theres something wrong with gay people and thats why you dont want your kids to be gay. If you saw gay people as equal, and if you completley respected them, you wouldnt mind if your child was gay or not.

It's pure ignorance.

It may be because they're concerned about the negative effect homophobia might have on their children, like putting them at risk, being insulted, not doing well in their careers etc. If not, I can't think of a reason right now why that wouldn't be homophobic.

What does homosexual roles even mean?

That is not homophobia......Respect their preferences.
Update --- What is the age range you are talking about ?
No-one knows it for certain until they reach sexual maturity.
