Mother not ready to march in Pride parade with gay son

標題:面對兒子的同性戀身份:一位母親的掙扎與成長

In today's society, the increasing diversity of family structures and values presents both challenges and opportunities for growth for many families. Recently, a reader named "No Proud Mom" turned to renowned columnist Amy Dickinson for advice, and her story touched the hearts of many.

「沒有驕傲的媽媽」在信中提到,她的兒子傑克在五年前向她出櫃,這讓她感到悲傷,因為她曾希望兒子能過一種更傳統的生活。最近,傑克希望帶他的伴侶塞繆爾回家參加家庭活動,這讓她感到矛盾和不安。

艾米在回信中提醒「沒有驕傲的媽媽」,接受兒子的性取向並非將其視為一個問題,而是接受傑克就是他自己。艾米強調,傑克選擇帶男友回家見家人,這本身就是一種傳統的表現。她還提到,任何性活躍的成年人都可能感染性病,而對於同性戀社區中的暴力行為,最好的應對方式是成為改變的一部分,而不是恐懼。

此外,艾米建議「沒有驕傲的媽媽」多花時間與傑克和塞繆爾相處,並嘗試成為一個更支持的母親。她還推薦了PFLAG.org,這是一個為父母和家庭成員提供支持的全國性組織,幫助他們了解更多有關性的知識,解決恐懼並解答問題。

Another reader shared a religious problem he encountered at a family gathering. When he refused to bow his head when his brother-in-law began praying, it caused some tension in the family. Amy believes it is good manners to respect the faith practices of others, even if you don't agree or participate in their beliefs.

These stories and Amy's responses remind us that understanding, respect and communication are key when dealing with issues of family, faith and sexual orientation. Every family is unique, and learning to accept and embrace these differences can make family relationships stronger and more harmonious.
