Mozarkamom was unable to start a new topic and has posted about her dd in one of the threads below. Here's her original post:

Saw your reply and you are so sensible. How do I start a new topic? My 16 year old daughter just told me she was gay. She gave lots of reasons that she "knows". I need someone to talk to about this. I'm not sure about the whole "coming out" She has taken stances before on different aspects of "who I am" and they have faded away. Almost like playing dress-up. I told her I love her and always will and what I want for her is to have a good heart, some happiness and peace in her life. I told her I have her back, I'm proud of who she is and her aspirations. I can't talk to her Dad. He is solidly anti "Queer". I would not have chosen this for her but if it's actual then it is. She has had a hard year in school this year and is a drama major. Actually she is facing some acedemic and personal responsibility issues that distress me at this time worse than her sexual orientation . She seems to be lost identity wise and I realize that is a normal developmental issue at this age. I'm lost! help.......

It does not matter WHAT your husband is opposed to, you need to pull up your bootstraps and do what is RIGHT.
