Here’s a link to one of those advice columns where someone writes in with a question and a wise all-knowing one answers. In this case it’s a woman who found out her husband was gay, divorced him, and now they share custody of their son. It’s all amicable but she’s worried that the kid will think he’s supposed to be gay.
I don’t want to be insensitive, but it is a real concern of mine. I will love my son no matter what, but I just don’t want his young mind to be confused.
Here’s more. Aside from the utter stupidity of this question, the reply is even worse. She talks about love and different kinds of relationships. It’s all nonsense. It’s a terrible answer.
All you need to know is this. Millions of gay kids like me grew up in heterosexual environments with heterosexual dads and we were not influenced by that in the least. We were born gay. Our straight dads didn’t make us straight. And it’s the same for straight kids. You can’t make them gay. It’s that simple.
