See what i'm saying now?
But it is
I guess there are still quite a few homophobic individuals out there who don't understand it, but sexual preference is sexual preference.
I didn't choose to start liking girls. You didn't choose to start liking girls. Homosexuals don't choose to start liking members of the same sex.
It really is that simple. The fact that children are coming to grips with it at an age where they would normally first begin having sexual feelings is
potently strong evidence to that point.
If a 13 year old boy can honestly say that he is attracted to other boys, and can express that to his parents, and they can accept that, then good for
that boy! Maybe he will actually have a shot at living a happy, well-rounded life. Some of the posters on this site, were they his parents, would
apparently rather have their child live in shame: repressed of what he feels is right and constantly second-guessing himself. I guess that's good
parenting to some of you... As long as they believe exactly what you believe everything is gravy, right?
To address your other point:
When I was 13 years old I was very much into girls. I was very much thinking about sex. So were all of my friends in school. So were you at that age,
unless you were developmentally challenged. If we are going to be completely honest with ourselves, instead of falling prey to social taboos, we all
start thinking about sex much earlier than we like to discuss. As soon as children realize that girls are different than boys, they start to become
We live and die to have sex. It is in our genes. Helping your children to understand that it is natural, rather than trying to repress it, is the best
thing you can do for your children. If you don't understand that, you are probably best off not reproducing.
