Well my parents would'nt mind WHAT race my partner was-so long as they weren't my current gf. They HATE her for some reason that I don't know about.

Note: I'm white. And gay.
My parents would rather I married a black male serial killer with ten eyes and devil horns than my current girlfriend.
Hmmm...trouble brewing.

Ok, here is the story. It's long. Hold tight.

Katy and I were happy friends. I'm already out, my parents are NOT happy, just generally stressed about it as I think most parents are, but we get along ok. Things are stable. Katy is just a 'good mate' and my parents like her. She comes for dinner, hangs out with my brother, etc etc.
Then after some time, there comes the whole sexual tension between us. Totally unacknowledged by either of us, might I add. Note: at this moment there IS NOTHING GOING ON between us. Totally platonic. Now, my mother and I had a quite close relationship, and she picked up on my vibes, like some scary mum radar, and confronts me, accusing Katy and I of sleeping together. This is totally untrue, I tell her so. Cue screaming argument.
Scene is now the next day at school. I say to Katy "omigod, guess what? My mum thinks WE'RE TOGETHER!! How weird is THAT??" Cue uncomfortable silence.
Soooo...later that day. Katy bumbs into mum in the parking lot. She says to mum, "by the way, I know what you think is going on between me and your daughter, I just want to reassure you, there's nothing happening." My mum is really pissed at me for telling Katy, but life goes on.
The next WEEK, like 5 DAYS later, Katy and I hook up after a ball. Now, mum thinks both I and Katy horrible horrible lesbian freaks, and also that Katy is a horrible horrible lesbian LIAR.
Try convincing my mother that there wasn't anything going on that afternoon, yet one week later we're very much involved.

Phew. Are you still awake?? That's the short verson.

My step-dad would have an absolute fit if I was dating anyone but a white girl.
My dad probably wouldn't be too happy if I didn't date a white girl, but he'd accept the fact and get over it as time passed.
My mom would support me no matter what color/race/etc the person was.

I have no idea what my family would think. I only live with my mum, so I think she would be ok with it. Maybe a little uncomfortable at first. My brother wouldn't care.

Since I live with Mum, I'm only close with her side of the family. My fav cousin (she's my age) wouldn't care either. I can't say about that other people. Ecspecially my grandparents. I think they would be shocked, or at least keep asking me "Why? What's so good about him?"

Hey, those of you who's parents would be less than impressed with you dating someone of a different race, I have a question:

Are you living in an area with a low level of multi-culturalism? For example, my parents wouldn't have an issue with me dating someone of a different race, but then where I live there are lots of different cultures living side by side. I think that if we live somewhere more "white" then they would be more offended by the concept. Comments?

Well Armihole isn't all that multi-cutlural but my parents lived in the NT (up north) where lots of indonesians come down to have babies etc etc etc, so they're pretty accepting but generally people in Armi and surrounding areas are racists.
A white girl in my year called one of my friends a "fucking Asian" and the joke making the rounds at the moment was made up by one of my friends:
Q. What do you call a bunch of aboriginals rolling down a hill?
A. An Abalanche
Q. What is it called when they run back up?
A. Black Magic
Witty. REAL witty.
Also there's this HUGE joke that a girl in my year is German. She isn't. Shes Australian but someone stuck Swastikas all over her locker last year...

ah no, i found that out the strange way. i used to date black guys occasionally, when i started dating one guy in particular and we were more serious than i usually get with guys, i mentioned to my mother that i was dating someone. she asked where he lived and when i mentioned the town- which has the reputation of being predominately black and poor. she asked in a scandalized tone if he was black and then got really pissed off. didnt stop me from dating him till we ended over a non race issue. a few months later i mention the relationship and my mom disgust to my dad. and he suprisingly didnt seem as bothered by the guy-perhaps because it was over. he made excuses for my mom saying that she was from the south and had grown up with these prejeudices. so no its not ok with my mom and my dad has a dont ask dont tell policy- same thing with my sexual orientation. weirddd. my friends are also strangely prejuediced having grown up in all white neighboorhoods and gone to private schools where there might be 5 black students out of 400. so i date black guys but i dont tell anyone.

my parents would say something if they found out i dated someone who was not my race. I'm a BBC..british Born chinese..and my rents do nick pick at things...like the odd comment..i hope he's not white etc....but then again..my mum would tease me if i got some male mates ringing up or coming over..but i think deep down, she'll object tho. Having said that, i do have cousins who are half white and half chinese...so i dont know. I have never dated a chinese guy tho...all white and one black guy....i still rememeber the stares we got when we went out :icon_roll.

where i come from, its very multicultural...lots of Asians, chinese etc...and being a students city from people coming all over Europe and the rest of the world, i consider myself lucky.

Well generally rural areas in Austrlaia are racist-mostly against aboriginals, it wouldn't be my PARENTS I'd be worried about, it'd be my peers if i was dating an aboriginal.

Neither my mum nor dad would care whether i went out with someone from a diffrerent race, of the same sex, if he/she depending on what i am when i'm older was older than me or younger than me, it wouldn't matter, as long as they weren't like 19 and i'm 12, my friend is engaged to her boyfriend of 6 months and she's 13, he's 19, they're planning to get married when rachel is 17, i think it's sweet. But i have only ever dated white guys, but have always fancied guys from other races especially blacks and indians, i love them and they are so kind (most of them) i'm firneds with a few indian people and they're really cool, but i'm brought up in a town where you see alot of chinese people and white people and hardly any indians or black people which is a shame because it would be nice to see a wider variety of people in my town. But there is a girl in my street who is off black dad and white mother, she said i called her a 'nigger' when i didn't even know what the bloody word meant! she also said that i wrote 'niggers live here' on her front door, which would be impossible seeing as i was in mallorca at the time and i wouldn't just fly bakc to write that on her doo then fly back to spain! she thinks my family is racist, but its her thats racist, she cals us white chocolate and says we match the snow and stuff like that, she's racist but she's too darn thick to realise it!

For my parents, it all depends on the character of the person and not her ethnicity.

ew...thatgs not sweet thats like criminal and a tad gross. i mean thats a fully matured guy having sex with a girl whos just in puberty that is disgusting. he must be quite the skeez not to be able to date his own age.
