Why people have a perceptive attitude towards Gays?

You all know that I have a gay son and I am really proud of him. We (my 2 kids and I) went to the mall after PFC (Parents – Facilitators Conference), Since Ahia (my eldest son) wanted to buy his new shoes. The shoes he wanted is the so called “The hidden wedge” I was not shocked that he wanted it. So we are looking at shoe store all over the mall. Then he decided to check this shop ( I will not tell you unless you ask me *wink) for their hidden wedge shoes. Finally, after a loooong walk he decided that this is the one true shoes (like your one true love. I ask the sales assistant to look for his size and this is what she said.

Ma’am pambabae po yan

Then I answered back.

Yes, I know. My son is gay kasi.

Then she looked at me with a weird face, then asked of her companion to get the size that we wanted and after giving the shoes to us I realized they were looking at us  (maybe they are curious) and I saw that they are somewhat gossiping and laughing about something. I know they are talking about my son, so I didn’t interrupt them, then after my son decided that is the shoes he wanted I got up and pay for it. The two sales people can really not contain laughing and gossiping even I was in front of them. So I just ignore them. After paying the sales assistant said.

Thank you, ma’am, come again. (Mimicking a gay voice)

I wanted to go back and confront them, but I didn’t do it not because I am scared or what, but I wanted my son to know how proud I am of him being gay and I just explain that some people aren’t really open for gay kids like you and I finished my sentence with “Be strong”. I don’t know why people are making fun of gays, they are human and have feelings buti na lang my son didn’t realize na pinaguusapan na siya since he’s really busy about his shoes. Always remember that almost all gays are very successful in life never underestimate their capabilities.

  1. relate na relate, I am bi (and proud) and I keep getting ‘weird look’ from strangers whenever I am out with my partner. We don’t PDA or do lascivious acts. Parang ang ignorant lang. Ang blessed ng son mo for having you as his mom. I’m glad to hear na may mga parents na ‘open’ pagdating sa LGBT. <3 <3 <3

    1. True yan, I think my son is going for the girly dress gay kasi he’s into girly shoes and girly colors but as of now we don’t allow him pa to cross dress kasi his studying sa Catholic school but in time when pinili na niya mag cross dress will allow him. Ang weird nga eh. I really wanted equality for LGBT. Sana lang ganun din yung iba.

  2. You know what, this is something I’ll never understand also. I support LGBT, I have family members who are gays and lesbians. They don’t judge family members, but when you talk about other people na with them who are gay, grabe maka judge. I especially hate it when people tell my son he can’t have something pink because that’s for girls. Since when did God say that anything pink are for girls lang? And don’t get me started with Church and their issues with gays. Hay nako!

  3. I really hate and feel sick to my stomach whenever I read or hear about people’s disgusting judgmental attitude towards gay. I just hate the hypocrisy! I made an article about this explaining the Science behind. It’s just so sad that up until this modern age, people are still narrow minded.

  4. The sales clerks were so rude. They were real girls pero masama naman ang ugali. Gays are human beings too. They deserve to be respected. I have so many gay friends and I admire them for being so talented. The company should remind their sales clerks to treat their customers properly. If I were you, lumipat na lang ako ng store. Naiinis talaga ako sa nangyari sa’yo at ng son mo, Mommy! Ahahay!
