Kaenneth: SpeedyBB: 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.

Well this reminds me of Latin American culture - mucho macho naturally - where you will see adults appraise a six-year old and remark "Ese nino es joto" ("That kid's a queer").

It is usually said, from what I've observed, with a mixture of disapproval and pity - most of all for the parents - but also with finality. Which I found interesting: it's there and no amount of football or beatings or hormone therapy or electroshock or Jeebus-screeching is going to change it.

Well, there is always the burlap sack and river solution...

Nothing like humble clothes, and a fresh baptism before sending them off to live in a monastery with all those catholic monks.

A vow of silence means no telling.

Well actually I did not mean to suggest any expression of violence. Effeminate men are pretty much despised in Latin culture but tolerated. Does that make sense? There is also an element of DADT, from what I've observed. It depends on the country as well. Chile considers itself very 'European' but they're homophobic bastids. Argentina is the country of men's men, macho-gaucho, but is also advancing quickly toward GLBT equality. Brazil's a bit of everything.

Also drag queens tend to be tough, to survive. They carry knives and fight with no regard for their personal safety. Sort of like a suicide bomber. Therefore most he-men will point and snicker but tend to keep their distance.

If you want to see a place where nobody gives a shiat go to Thailand. You'll stand out as a farang but your sexual orientation is regarded with puzzled amusement, if the subject happens to come up. 'What, him? He likes boys? Crazy foreigner."

tinfoil-hat maggie: duenor: Well... this thread is like one big coming out party

So was the sex good?
: )

Didn't do the deed, but I gotta say.... this gay man was one persistent guy who had the raunchiest, dirtiest thoughts ever. Basically suggested five different types of porn all rolled into one, with him being the star attraction.

I remember thinking, this is like my fantasy date.... except that I've got this dude with a big grin staring up at me. at one point he literally crawled across the floor to try to bury his face in my crotch. and because I didn't know how to react, I kept trying to redirect him back to the proper firearms cleaning procedures... which he had basically no interest in by that point...

he had this great line .. "your d*** won't know the difference" lol

Acharne: ImpatientlyUnsympathetic: I almost peed my pants laughing when my best friend's daughter said, "that's f***ing bull s***" about an over-tightened car seat strap.

I effing *heart* that shiat. Little sponges doing the 'From you dad, I learned it from you' behaviour to shocked parents. The only problem is you can't then go to the friend "See? I told you that you behaved like that sometimes, if you're kid is doing it, it lends evidence now doesn't it?"

That ends poorly.

"My dad worked in swears like some artists work in oils. But I couldn't tell my mom that I heard it from my old man."

rynthetyn: FuryOfFirestorm: I'm still surprised to find out that Cher admitted to having a hard time dealing with Chastity coming out as a lesbian, while her conservative father Sonny was completely cool with it. I mean, Cher of all people? This is a woman who dated a gay guy (David Geffin) and is worshiped by gay men and imitated by drag queens around the world, and she's couldn't deal with her daughter being a lesbian? Blew my mind.

Then Cher completely plotzed when Chastity transitioned to Chaz, while his stepfather Greg Allman (a redneck dude from the conservative south) was totally chill about it. Now my mind has collapsed into a black hole.

(To be fair to Cher, she eventually got over it and fully supports Chaz now)

Yeah, given how much Cher owes her career to gay men buying her music, that she had a hard time with it was surprising. Though, it's different when it's your kid rather than other people's kids, and I imagine that finding out that your daughter is actually your son is probably something that takes getting used to no matter how theoretically cool with the concept you may be.

Definitely shows you shouldn't put people in round holes when it come to their politics. And yes, making money off other people tends to make it easier.

Think of the closet bigots who talk about interracial relationships, then crap their pants when their child comes home with someone of a different race.

Have you tried wearing one of those Hannibal Lecter masks?

Where's the fail tag for dad? He raised a homersexual.

/fake, like my post.
2013-03-16 11:48:54 PM  
Yeah, that's about how I'd handle it too.

StranahansBarracuda: That can be defined as their problem.  You can't control what they say, but you can control how you react. Aka "They can only hurt you if you let them." This is a difficult one to master especially with parents (been there with my Mom.)

Probably the best psychiatrist you can read to understand this is Dr. William Glasser.

/Choice theory and reality therapy make so much sense to me, for some reason.
