I have to say I wasn’t entirely comfortable when I saw this campaign.  Don’t get me wrong.  I have gay, lesbian and bisexual friends that I absolutely adore and respect but being a mother in RL, I often ask myself if I could comprehend the same if the same thing happened to my child.  It’s hard to say.  A mother’s love is, I have to say – complicated, which it really shouldn’t be, so after some thoughts I have decided to participate.

I would trade war, greed, jealousy, and hatred for LOVE, so I support STAND4LOVE.

Posing with my bestie, Debbie, for the first time. 🙂

    Nice post Ai, and well done for supporting this campaign! Also, thank you for your honesty – it’s so refreshing to read your thought process on this – and while many people wouldn’t admit to those doubts, I’m sure many parents do have all sorts of mixed feelings and expectations about their children’s future sexual orientation – but however mixed your feelings on the matter, I have no doubt you will continue to love your children just as deeply whoever they ultimately choose as their love partners…

      Hi Bea, thanks for your comments. You are absolutely right about the love from the parents and love to a partner….ultimately both types of loves are unconditional.
