Overheard...

... in psychiatry ward.

Medical student presenting a case for tutorial:

The patient's father could not accept his son's homosexuality, and took it as a blow to his own manhood.

  • Meatshell,

    Sorry, but I am not allowed to answer medical queries on this blog.

    Best to ask your family doctor.

    Thank you.

  • I think most parents do take it personally. Insult to dad's manhood, failure of parents to bring up the child properly, not instilling good christian values etc.

    My friend's bro committed suicide cos of the pressure fr his mum who kept telling him he was a disgrace in god's eyes and was going to go to hell.

    Sigh.

  • Er... Smiles, this post is not a statement, it's a bad pun.

  • homosexuality is not accepted in singapore, no matter what people say about trying their best to be open-minded.

    Just because someone is different from us does not mean that we can be rude to them or make fun of them.

    Parents should realise that sexual orientation is influenced by social factors like the circle of friends their child mixes with, and self-identity. they should also assure their child that no matter what happens, he is still loved.

    If parents cannot accept homosexuality in their children, they themselves should seek counselling, and not force their child to get counselled.

  • Smiles, do comment when you feel like; that's why I enabled the comments function.

    My concern was: did you get the joke? :)
