Ask Amy: Pride flag creates confusion for parents
Dear Amy: My stepdaughter is 21. She came out as gay about a year ago.
We have been very supportive of her. We are very fond of her girlfriend.
For Christmas, the two of them bought my wife and me a pride flag to display on our front porch.
I have to be honest that while supportive I do not have any desire to fly the pride flag on my house.
My stepdaughter and her girlfriend do not live with us and I don't think they even have a flag at their own home.
Is there anything I can say or do to not sound like a terrible person that I don't want to fly this flag at my home?
My wife may also feel offended if I say something against this.
I’m really struggling with this.
Dear Ally: This presents an opportunity for you and your wife to learn the intent and symbolism behind this gift.
