Gay Houseguests

My 19 yr. old niece wants to come stay at my house with her girlfriend. I told her that I would like them to sleep in separate rooms. I have an 11 yr. old and my husband doesn't even want her to stay at our house with her girlfriend. How would you handle this?

I think the question to ask is, would you allow them to sleep together in the same room if she were bringing a boyfriend? If so, then no, you shouldn't ask them to sleep in separate rooms.

Your husband? Well, he is just a bigot. Unless, of course he would say the same thing if she were bringing a boyfriend, that he doesn't want her staying in your house.

There is absolutely nothing wrong with your daughter being exposed to gay relationships. It is hardly going to damage her for life. She will be more damaged if she is raised in a bigoted household.

She is your niece so you should try to accept her the way she is. I would ask her to behave with decorum, as you would if she was bringing a boyfriend, out of respect for your young child. Two girls being friends is not going to raise eyebrows even if they do share a bedroom.

People are born with indeterminate gender as well as gay. Animals are too. They are all part of God's creation and we have no right to judge. Leave judgement to God and love your niece as God wants us to love each other.
