Special Treatment? LOL
Hun - Lets talk...
My son, 18, manly man, graduated high school, right into college, makes good grades- 3.2 GPA. Admittedly - likes to 'smoke' AND terrible driving
record but otherwise - Aces. Only one run-in with the law and he learned. He is literally TOO GOOD to be true. Totally independent, his own apt, his
own car. I borrow from him!
His sexual orientation would NEVER be obvious - as most people cant even believe it when he or I tell them my son is gay. Convincing anyone of this is
extremely hard. So the good grades and scholarships didnt come from him flaming around or liking boys. Nor was he locked up the one time he was
because he is gay. NO ONE CAN TELL. So no - being gay has Zero bearing on my child's successes or failures. Too - if there were advantages he and I
both would be very aware of them. He would certainly take advantage of them - I assure you.
My kid is awesome. My kid is gay. And let me assure you of something, although I am a huge redneck from NC, Im not ignorant. And I thank God for
As I am grown and I have done my job raising him, I may now sleep with whomever I chose. I happen to be married but if not.. hehe. Another topic...
Just as I am grown and whom I sleep with is none of his business, he too is grown and whom he sleeps with is none of my business.
Do I wish he wasnt gay? No. Do I cry sometimes when I accept I will never hold a grandchild... of course. THIS is the only thing that hurts about it.
And to a mama, it cuts deep when you have an only child.
But let me assure all of you of one thing (especially any gay kids out there that might wonder how their mama's feel now that 'they know'.
We, as Mama's, always knew. You are our babies. It isnt a choice. Its DNA'ed. NOONE would 'chose' to be gay... thats obsurd. My son would lie on a
table and give blood to any of you to save your life. (Clean blood, very ontop on dr visits and maintains a steady relationship). In Florida, gays are
all about safety. Us hetros are the tainted ones. He would feed you before himself and go hungry.
He will be teaching your children in school in less than a year. Yes, my gay son will be responsible for educating your child. If that scares you...
please seek a higher awareness to your surroundings. Or home-school, gays are taking over the educational system! Bout damn time someone did.
And lastly... be assured that if my God lined up 1 million babies on a set of steps and I could have chosen any one of those million, I would have
walked up to my Matthew and taken him into my arms. With this knowledge. And never regret it.
Safety is my only concern - not advantages or disadvantage - as there are NONE. He has been gay for 20 yrs - out for 4 and to this very day - either
of us fail to see any advantages to being gay. First hand experience.
Thank you for reading. I dont post often but when I do - I have a lot to say. Apologies for being so verbose.
