How you are as an adult, happy, sad, dysfunctional, whatever it is, a lot of it always depends on how your parents raise you. And it can be way more difficult for a child, they are not cisgender or if they happen to be gay. So it's really important that kids have good parents, who will accept them for who they are. 

Case in point, this mom and her reaction to her son coming out of the closet. 

This is quite literally the best thing I have seen on the internet in a year, maybe more! Even Reddit thinks so. Some are even sharing their own personal stories. 

This is why moms are the absolute best. Obviously not, if they are homophobic but you get the point.
