My Father: Well I think that it would cause alot of unhappiness in your lives. I assume we can now assume YOU are not gay?
Sounds like just a rationalization to me, albeit it could be bad wording. I mean, I definitely would support my kid if he/she was gay, but if I was living in a rather homophobic area, I can't honestly say that I wouldn't hope that the kid wasn't queer. In my area, I wouldn't have any worries, but in some places, I would be concerned about what the child would have to put up with. So, there is some truth to it.
Though, it's also possible that he has underlying feelings regarding homosexuality that he's simply covering up with a politically correct explanation in the presence of his children. I don't really know enough about your dad to judge.

My dad has always been somewhat homophobic but is growing more and more racist thanks to the BNP. Which has lead to some very heated arguments.
The stupidity of the reasons that humanity chooses to attack each other just baffles my mind. I recently finished up a unit on the civil rights movement in my American history class and I was blown away with the question, "why the hell did this even have to happen?" We fight over gender, we fight over the melanin concentration in our skin, we fight over sexual attractions, et al. It's ridiculous.
