What a lovely story to come home from work to!

BolloxReader: buckler: dragonchild: SIX???  What's there to know about a six-year-old's sexual orientation?  When I was six I was. . . well. . . six!  I was years away from my cooties phase, let alone being attracted to anyone.

When I was taking care of kids, I had one not much older who enjoyed hanging out with the girls much more than with boys, enjoyed playing hairdressing games, liked to try on jewelry and girls' hats and such, and who refused to play competitive games. He liked watching "girly" cartoons and shows. Visiting counselors would say they could easily see feather boas in his future. At some point, it becomes pretty evident. Not always, mind you, but it's fairly obvious.

He could also have been trans, which is different than being gay.


Thank you. A lot of people assume that gender identity and sexual identity go hand-in-hand, but they don't always. That's why you sometimes meet stereotypical masculine men who have never had an interest in women, and makeup-addicted drag queens who are sexually attracted to women. Hormones and brain chemistry can do all kinds of wonderful things with human gender and sexual identity. Not every man you meet with a lisp and a hip sway is gay. That's why not every gay couple has a "male" and a "female". Sometimes it's two people who got together because they both happen to be a lot alike and enjoy the same things.

Not 6, but I first met my girlfriend's nephew when he was 9.  On the drive back home, I asked her "does your brother realize his son is gay?" I mean, he was a very effeminate kid.  And loved to dance and show off his dance moves to the entire family.  My girlfriend thought I was crazy.  We met him again when he was about 14, and he came to NYC for a dance summer program at Julliard.  In my opinion, he was completely out by then.  And my girlfriend still refused to agree.  At 16 he came back to NYC to try out for Julliard, and stayed at our place since we lived near there.  First day he sat down on the couch next to us while we were watching TV, opened his laptop, and the background image was the naked torso of a big muscle dude with a huge unit.  So I turned to her and asked "Now do you believe me?"

Last I heard of him he was a successful choreographer living in Israel.  With his boyfriend.

This a touching story. But in the real world, not all gay people care if they have acceptance from parents.

Or anyone.

There are some good parents out there.  My cousin's kid has gender dysphoria.  The kid kept thinking she was a boy and kept asking her parents if she was going to get her boy parts when she got older.  She started talking like this when she was about 6.  They took her to the psych doctor, and the doctor said, "She has gender dysphoria.  The best thing you can do is let her dress like a boy if she wants and do boy things."  They do this. She is a good kid (unlike the "normal" ones) and is accepted by the entire family.

otherginger: Good:  Your dad assures you he accepts you as you are and loves you.
Bad:    Your dad tells you that you and your boyfriend make a "cute couple."

When I was a teen, the last thing I wanted to hear was my parents' opinion of my boyfriend's cuteness.


Hey, at least he doesn't give helpful tips like "remember, whichever one of you is the bottom should take an enema beforehand to clean yourself out, so the top doesn't pull out a plum."

Way to pigeonhole your kid at 6; you must be some kind of seer.

Nice letter, though. Props to Dad.

WhippingBoy: Mike Chewbacca: /One of my gay friends knew he was gay since he was in kindergarten. He still doesn't understand how his parents didn't figure it out when he asked for the album soundtrack to Xanadu when he was 8.

That was my favorite album when I was 11 and I'm pretty sure I don't have the ghey.


Eh, it was his joke.

 Well nearly every gay person silly, thats why they refer to it as "coming out".

Raider_dad: My daughter didn't come out to me , I asked her "So were you ever going to tell me your gay?" and she got a big "gosh I don't know" smile on her face. I just told her not to worry about what people think and to just follow her heart , because it will guide her in the right direction.


"Hey Sarah, my dad thinks I'm a lesbian!"

"Seriously?"

"Now i can can get mike alone in my room and my dad won't suspect a thing!"

It's tough to argue that people don't want acceptance from their parents. I think most people don't let it ruin their lives if they don't, but seriously, unless you have pieces of shiate for parents or you're a sociopath, having proud parents would be a good thing.

I probably knew at 6, though I don't know that I knew what I knew.  I explicitly remember hearing "For the Longest Time" and thinking the guy was singing to a guy and that this was kind of neat (early 80s).  And, no, I didn't play with Barbies - Legos and Transformers, mostly, when I wasn't on the computer or taking apart old electronics.  My parents never claimed to have known, but both are a little self-centered anyway, so they just may not have noticed anything.

/Mid-30s now, came out at 13, never had a girlfriend.

When I was six I was already playing kissing games with girls and about a year later I was sneaking my dad's nudie mags. I just knew I liked girls.

All kinds of awesome. My brother died of AIDS, and our parents never accepted his orientation.

/why yes, fundy Christian upbringing
//one time when we were driving he started to turn and I told him to go straight. "I tried," he said.

Cletus C.: Cagey B: I'll feel a lot better when this is the normal reaction parents have to this sort of thing, and it doesn't become news.

"Love Is ..." was an insipid illustration that appeared in "news"papers for decades. Some people just liked the stupidly positive message.

This one isn't stupid. It's kind of silly, full of love and cool. That never gets old.


Love is... Letting him flirt a bit. All kinds of nsfw

I actually asked my son if he was gay, he has tons of girlfriends but no "girlfriend".  I said, I'm cool with it but your conservative dad might need a talk by me before you come out, to ease the blow (yeah pun intended).  He said "No I just want to hang out, get hugs (he's short so face boobage is awesome)  and I hate talking about feelings. But can I tell Jon your ok with it?  He's afraid to tell his parents."   Broke my heart.  At 15 you should be able to tell your mum everything.
 
2013-03-15 06:24:23 PM
That's cool and all but what if Dad misunderstood what his son was talking about on the phone. Now he says he's known he was gay since he was 6 and the kid's just devastated now because he's really not?

Psylence: Ned Stark: So did the brat go buy orange juice or not?

JESUS man!  [content8.flixster.com image 360x231]


'Jesus' said backwards sounds like 'sausage'. I tried to explain that to a co-worker today and he kept saying "SUSS-ej". I thought he was fairly creative and had a sense of humor but apparently not.
 
2013-03-15 06:25:57 PM
I thought the Internet was like ten years past the era when people believed all the unattributed, anonymous tales that got passed around.

I mean, this would be a nice story... except that I'd really recommend the dad having a face-to-face talk with the kid, or better yet, letting the kid approach him on his own terms, no matter what the dad already knows.

No, they're not - at least, not all of them. Some realize what sexuality is earlier than that. Some just know that certain things make them excited or curious, without really knowing why. For some very unlucky kids (not me, thankfully), abuse can make them aware of sexuality from a frighteningly early. And for some kids, the brain and the body just act precociously and they develop sexually very early. Our body is a weird machine, man, and they don't make them all the same.
