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.
DeerNuts: Things didn't go quite as smoothly with my dad and stepmom, but they're ok now. They even send my batter half birthday cards.

mindaroth: Sometimes it's two people who got together because they both happen to be a lot alike and enjoy the same things.
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.
Ed Grubermann: DeerNuts: Things didn't go quite as smoothly with my dad and stepmom, but they're ok now. They even send my batter half birthday cards.So you're the ... nah, too easy.
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.
Acharne: My parents are lesbians.
flannelcat: farking stupid. fark all involved.
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.
DeerNuts: They even send my batter half birthday cards.
mikaloyd: Dont you hate it when fun stories are fake?
Godscrack: This a touching story. But in the real world, not all gay people care if they have acceptance from parents.Or anyone.
j__z: Kind of sad this is such a big deal. This is how parents are supposed to react./now go buy me some damn OJ
RobertBruce: Parenting done right! A rare awesome sight.
SultanofSchwing: What is all this gay dust doing in my office?!
angrymacface: When I was four I was oddly fascinated with male bodybuilding and the volleyball scene in Top Gun for reasons I could not understand at the time.

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.
Psylence: Ned Stark: So did the brat go buy orange juice or not?JESUS man! [content8.flixster.com image 360x231]
Mid_mo_mad_man: Why would any dad think his son is gay at six? Kids are asexual at that age
sleeps in trees: 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.
