When Your 7-Year-Old Son Announces, 'I'm Gay'
I hope I would have the courage to have this reaction. But I can’t truly say I would.
Truly inspiring piece. The world needs more Amelias.
As I said to Alex: it’s hella easier to talk to kids about this when they’re younger than when they’re older - they don’t have expectations already in place. And also: frankly, I think this might be easier for allies than for gay people raising their own kids. After all, we have less of our own bullshit to wade through in this regard. The hardest parenting stuff is always around the battles you’re still fighting with yourself. Ask me how I feel about my kids’ relationship to their bodies and their intellects. Holy shit.
At any rate: yes, nice piece.
