How to deal with a homophobic parent?

Home More advice Parents & Family

I have come to the conclusion that my dad is somewhat homophobic. He likes to question why people are gay or how do they know they like the same gender. When I came out to him and my momma as Bi my dad was playing 20Q with me asking all kinds of questions about it and wanting to know how I know and all of this stuff. My brother has a friend who is gay and he has made comments about him as well, such as, If he had married the woman he dated he wouldn't have thought about being gay.. He also says that gay's should get married. So what do you all think? Do you think he is homophobic by the way he acts and the things he says? Does it sound homophobic to you? If so, how does one deal with a homophobic parent? I don't know what to do. He will still from time to time try to question me. He doesn't get it and I just don't know what to do.. Any advice or suggestions is welcomed. Thanks.
