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.

I dragged my mother to see that movie when I was 9.  In my defense, I was a huge ELO fan at the time.

She forgave me eventually.

/ About 99 44/100% hetero.
// My kids all know that we'll love them unconditionally, no matter who they fall in love with.

That's a sweet story. It's hard not to feel empathy for people you'd expect to have more challenges in life than you face. Who doesn't like seeing an underdog "win"?

I had a similar moment with my daughter when she was 15. Her mother had thrown her out because the step-Dad is, well... an A-hole, and she said to me, "Don't you get it? I'm gay!" I told her "So? Clean your damn room. It's a mess. I love you."

Always been proud of her and now she's studying to be history teacher. Dusty in here....
 Another point. This kind of stuff shouldn't be so rare that it warrants an article about it.

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.


At age six I was masturbating to illustrated self-breast exam pamphlets.

My youngest at almost 4 years old was keeping us from leaving the pool one day.  His 6 year-old brother went to drag him to the car and little playa's reason was "Can't you see I'm talking to a lady here?"  And the lady in question was almost 8 years old.  All these years later, he still likes dark headed, brown eyed, olive skinned older girls.  They play him, run him, and he loves it.  The older one seems to be either more shy, or testing the waters.  He's just recently put up a picture of someone other than family on FB.  She's cute, but he doesn't want us to discuss anything about sex.  Ever.

Mid_mo_mad_man: Why would any dad think his son is gay at six? Kids are asexual at that age


This thread has already provided anecdotal evidence to refute your baseless claim, but I'll add mine.

By six I was already getting caught hiding lingerie catalogs with scantily clad women under the bed. Of course they were found. My parents just smiled at me and said, "It's because of the boobs isn't it?"
All I could do was admit that, yeah, I like boobs. They didn't scold me or anything, just told me to stop swiping mom's magazines.

By seven I had already looked up sex in an encyclopedia and knew what all the fuss was about, and why women gave me boners.

Suffice to say when my folks decided it was time for "the talk", they weren't terribly surprised that they weren't telling me anything I didn't already know.

Kind of, but not entirely.

I remember find my dad's Playboys when I was around the age and getting an erection from looking at the pictures. I had no idea what an erection was or why my weener was suddenly hard, but I certainly understood that I liked looking at naked ladies.

/ I also got an erection the first time I played doctor with a neighbor girl... which would have been around 8.

Or rather than they want people to think they are. Controlling sex as comprehensively as possible is one of the foundations of theocratic control.

When my sister was in grade 1, there was one boy who spent every recess and break styling the girls' hair, brushing and braiding and putting in ponytails. He wanted everything to be made beautiful and arranged nicely. If your 6 year old boy wants to be a hairstylist, collect unicorns, and is horrified by ripped clothes, dirt, and people shouting, that could be an indicator.

I thought stereotypes were bad?


Stereotyping = saving time

Not to be a douche, but I've heard it different from gay people...and it's just an honest question:

Nature or nature? Are you born gay, or do you become gay?

/I'm curious. From a scientific standpoint, not a "that thing/person/experience" must have made you gay.
 
2013-03-15 06:43:43 PM
I guess I went through the reverse situation of that.  Ten years ago my dad came out as gay, I just gave him a hug and told him it didn't matter to me.  He's much happier now.  Good for him.

When I was a kid talking on the phone to one of my friends and we suspected a parent might be listening in, we'd always try to say something shocking just to get them to admit to eavesdropping.

Just saying.

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.


Does anyone think it might be easier as a father to accept a gay daughter more so than a gay son?

This afternoon my Southern Baptist Grandmother was over for me to fix her computer. Every thing was going smoothly till she started talking to me about God.
She said "homosexuality is a sin" and I said "I have Gay Christian friends who go to church"--she said "well no one is without sin" and I said "so why persecute gays? She then went back to "My best friend growing up was Jim Nabors" I said "I know and you would think that you would get that he is a good person so gay people can be good people and get over it" She was mad when she left. OH well. I can fix the computer but I can't fix the delusion to control sexuality.

See, there are a lot of religiously influenced groups that would have people believe sexual orientation is a choice (and thus condemnable as sin), but weight of evidence (anecdotal or otherwise) seems to suggest a very different story of human sexual development.

Don't follow the propaganda, follow the evidence.

He didn't label a six year old for life.  He knew, and said nothing, until his son (now older) was ready to say something about it.

thisisyourbrainonFark: 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.

I didn't really understand this post, but this is still called for
