Ah well my DD is strong-willed and I doubt she will be damaged if she decides on a male partner in the future, but I believe she will always be gay. I asked her recently if she has ever remotely had the interest of dating guys and she said nope "they are *******s" she said and I said not all of them are like that, some may be awkward and not know how to approach a girl, something like that. I don't have any sons to back me up

I agree, 16 is definitely too young (especially with a younger sibling) . BTW, some/many/? parents have house rules against even adult children, who are not married or in a committed relationship, having sex with others in their home. Just because a child turns 18 or 21 or whatever age it does not mean that their parent should allow things that are against their values to take place in the family home.

That is the best solution we all could come up with as long as there is a younger child in our house. I also advised my husband for he and I to talk with his DD for when the time comes about sex when she is a full fledged teenager! I told my DD my husband's concern for his DD (and me as well, yes in spite of my being okay with my daughter being gay) needed to be respected.
You can understand and accept that your child is homosexual, bisexual or heterosexual without allowing open sexually, of any type, in your home.
