I knew from six (or earlier) that I liked the opposite sex. I had no idea what to do about it, but it for damn sure gave me a different feeling to be around them. It wouldn't surprise me if that was apparent in my behavior. I'm sure that isn't true for everyone, but to me it's your incredulity that is surprising.

When my cousin's son was 3, his dad TOTALLY caught him flirting with the hot redheaded barista at Starbucks. David thought to himself, "Well, I guess he's straight." It wasn't "Hell yeah, he's straight!" either, but "okay, mental note." And another friend has known since his son was a baby that he was straight because of how he would flirt with the ladies. Children aren't asexual.

/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's cool.

I took a gay man out to the rifle range once. When we got back I was delighted that I'd convinced him that he, as a member of a historically oppressed minority, ought to be right there on the front lines of defending the 2nd amendment. Showed him my favorite tri-tip roast shack and then offered to show him how to clean the rifles back at my place.

Yeah, you can see where this is going. Boy I was a naive 23 year old guy. A few cigarettes and some break-free oilings in, he confesses that he's just had the biggest crush on me since we started talking...

So he was only interested in my guns because of my body :(


Gay men, as a demographic, do tend to be especially interested in cleaning other men's rifles. I'm sure he was also quite intrigued by the possibility of finding out the caliber of your concealed carry pistol.

Mid_mo_mad_man: Agent Smiths Laugh: Mid_mo_mad_man: Agent Smiths Laugh: 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.

I didn't notice girls to much later myself. I just think its odd to look at a 6 year old and think "yep he's gay".

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.

I don't care who or isn't gay. I just think that we shouldn't be thinking about six years olds sex orientations. Heck six year old kids shouldn't know what sex is.

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.

There was another kid who was gay but his childhood involved a lot of GI Joe action figures getting it on and a fascination for guns, the military, and wrestling. If I remember right, he got kicked out of the Army for purposely shooting his foot or leg. I knew his brother, who would be like "Goddammit, if the kid isn't posing his action figures all nasty, he's lighting them on fire."

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.


its because thats when the boy began engaging in anal sex with his father and that would be considered gay.

pivazena: Lumbar Puncture: Same thing happened to my friend but in person.  He told his mom and she said 'Ok, now pass the salad'.

I don't know how I'd feel in that situation.  If it took a massive amount of courage to tell my parents about my sexual orientation and they were all cool-dismissive, like "yeah we totes knew about it anyway," I feel... deflated?  Like this was a big huge deal to me and my parents don't care about hard even coming out was for me.  Of course, that'd be way preferential to a knock-down drag-out fight and them kicking me out of the house. I think I'd at least want a hug or something.  Not a "we feel sorry for you" hug, but a "we know that was hard for you to say" hug.

I've never really thought about that before.  Hmm.


You want a hug? What are you ga...oh, right.

There's no data like experimental data. Go come out to your parents as whatever orientation they think you aren't. Repeat every couple weeks until whatever reaction they do show fades to "OK, whatever". Then report back to us with your feelings on the matter.

You know, how many BFFs happen to be Nate and Mike? Now they're all suspect.

Thanks Dad.

They took him to the doctor to get some blood work done, and the results came back positive....for gay.

/ ok, I'll need to use that as an insult sometime.
// I agree though.  How would you know?

CSB time: I remember at about that age (maybe a little older than 6.  8 or 9, i think?), my parents were shopping in the bookstore and I wandered off to the magazine area and happened across a Playgirl magazine that ended up on one of the lower racks.  I was fascinated by the concept of a magazine that had naked people in it, and sat there looking through it.  It was totally devoid of any sexual arousal--I was a kid fer chrissakes.  I just knew nudity was taboo and I was enjoying the thrill of breaking the rules.

I can only imagine how awkward things would have become if my parents had seen that and said "oh, our little snowflake is gay.  Let's do everything we can to make him the best gay he can be", then started buying me gay clothes, encouraging me to listen to gay music, etc.  Would I have gone insane, or would it have turned me gay?

They could tell by the shoes he was wearing.


His mother bought him some culottes, she thought they were shorts. This made him gay.

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.

It's a nice little father-son story - but I really don't get a lot of warm fuzzies out of these stories any more - they are starting to feel mundane.
And that, when you think about it, is a very, very good sign.
