    Would you encourage it???

    “Mommy, they are just like me.”

    My oldest son is six years old and in love for the first time. He is in love with Blaine from Glee.
    For those who don’t know Blaine is a boy…a gay boy, the boyfriend of one of the main characters, Kurt.
    This isn’t a ‘he thinks Blaine is really cool’ kind of love. It is a mooning at a picture of Blaine’s face for a half hour followed by a wistful “He’s so pretty” kind of love.
    He loves the episode where two boys kiss. My son will call people in from other parts of the house to make sure they don’t miss his ‘favorite part.’ He’s been known to rewind it and watch it over again…and force other to, as well, if he doesn’t think people have been paying enough attention.
    This infatuation doesn’t bother me or his father. We live in a very hip-liberal neighborhood, many of our friends are gay, and idea of having a gay son isn’t something that bothers either of us. Our son is going to be who he is, and it is our job to love him. End of story.
    He is also six. Six year olds get obsessed with all kinds of things. This might not mean anything at all. We always joke that he’s either gay, or we have the best blackmail material in the history of mankind when he’s a 16 year old straight boy. (Take that naked bath time pictures!)
    Then the other day we were traveling across the state listening to the Warblers album (of course), and in the middle of Candles, my son pipes up from the back seat.
    “Mommy, Kurt and Blaine are boyfriends.”
    “Yes, they are,” I affirm.
    “They don’t like kissing girls. They just kiss boys.”
    “That’s true.”
    “Mommy, they are just like me.”
    “That’s great, baby. You know I love you no matter what?”
    “I know…” I could hear him rolling his eyes at me.
    When we got home I recapped this conversation to his Dad, and we stood simply looking into each other’s eyes for a moment. Then we smiled.
    “So if at 16 he wants to make a big announcement at the dinner table, we can say ‘You told us when you were six. Pass the carrots’ and he’ll be disappointed we stole his big dramatic moment,” my husband says with a laugh and hugs me.
    Only time will tell if my son is gay, but if he is I am glad he’s mine. I am glad he has been born into our family. A family full of people who will love and accept him. People who will never want him to change. With parents who will look forward to dancing at his wedding.
    And I have to admit, Blaine would be a really cute son-in-law.

    I believe in EQUAL rights for all people.

    I write for the Huffington Post Gay Voices about raising my kids and our family and friends.

    My kids are often better teachers, and I am just trying to be a good student.

    Clear case of mommy and daddy always ignore me but if I act obsessed with this guy they lavish attention on me. The parents are stoked because they are hipsters and feel it makes them cool.

    I wouldn't really encourage any kid gay or straight to be into romance at such a young age. Let that sort of stuff happen for them when they are a bit older. Six year olds should be playing with toys, not crushing on people who star in shitty shows.

    I went to elementary school in the same small town I graduated high from. The kids I remember acting either overly butch or effeminate actually ended up being gay as adults. I've always thought that homosexuality was something that is either cultivated by social environments and/or a person is just born to be a homosexual.

    I'd take him down to Tijuana, and ditch him on Avenida de Revolucion.

    If he was your son, he'd stand a better chance socially being abandoned by Daddyindiego. :c

    I knew, but didn't know the word for it. I had one confusing moment in the fourth grade when I was "in love" (heh) with both a boy and a girl but later realized I was just in love with her hair. :jj:

    There's one scene on that show (I'll try to find it on youtube) but I still crack up at the way Jane Lynch (Sue Sylvester) just absolutely KILLS a dead-pan joke.

    There's a new boy in the school and he's got this wavy, longer, Justin-Bieber-type hair. Well, he's telling a story to the other students and one of the other students interrupts him and Sue Sylvester cuts the interrupter off and says "Sssh. Let her finish." :jj:
