caged saidThis is my first post. Has any one been disowned by family/parents for being out I only ask because I've finally come to terms with bieng gay but am too scared to come out because my parents have made it clear that they would be willing to do so and I want to know if this has ever happened
Your parents can disown you for any reason they want, even the way you part your hair. Who or what they make their heir is their legal right. If being gay is a reason they would disown you (and disinherit you as well I presume), then you have to decide if that's something you don't want to lose, and act accordingly.
Unfortunately, in this case they control the game. The only thing is to decide how important it is to you, and then the issue of what to do is made.
If they have little to offer you anyway, it's a small loss and so do what you like. I gather it won't be a devastating emotional loss on your part, if this is the way they think. Ya know, there usually comes a time when we get kicked out of the nest, pleasantly or unpleasantly, and we have to fly on our own.
If they're millionaires, there's a lot more at stake. And you'd be justified to act along more mercenary lines. So what describes your situation with them?
