Ok, you win the award for single most blindly humorous comment ever. I'm serious, I've really got no other recourse to this than to laugh at you as though you were a five year old who ran up to a birthday clown with a condom and asked him to turn it into a doggy. Just shake your head, give a smile like you're in a mentos commercial and chuckle at the innocence of children. Firstly, I’d like for you to take a moment to consider who you hear referring to homosexuality as a “lifestyle”. I guarantee you that nine times out of ten the people using this term are going to be religious fundamentalists with a moral objection to homosexuals in general. The idea, I believe is to try to create an impression that homosexuals live their lives in some vastly different way from everyone else (aside from the gender of who they date), It’s a lot easier to demonize them this way. It seems that you have been caught up in the trap that they’ve set for you with this particular bit of rhetoric. Please don’t take offense at my saying so, but your assessment that homosexuals believe themselves to be part of some distinct separate culture, as though they live in another country, goes beyond absurd and ventures into the realm of shockingly hilarious! The scenario you paint is entirely unworkable, I’m afraid. I guarantee you that there are no homosexual parents that would get upset that their children are rejecting “their culture” be that a love of showtunes and fashion design, or having romantic relationships with members of the same gender (however far you intended to carry the meaning). The general “Those durn kids and the noise they call music!” sort of sense might be applicable, but the fact remains that homosexuals were raised in, and live in the same culture as every other heterosexual member of their community, and trust me, they’re very comfortable with the idea that some people are straight and have no eye for interior decorating. Ask any same-sex parents what they hope the sexuality of their children will be, and you’ll likely get a uniform response: “We just want our child to be whoever (s)he is, and be happy!” There may be some few exceptions out there, ones which I myself haven’t yet seen, but in general homosexuals tend to be quite savvy to how useless the idea of worrying about other people’s sexual orientations are, let alone trying to dictate them.
