Ever since I was a little kid I wanted to have a teddy. I don't know why though. I guess its because I always wanted to hug something every night while I sleep.

My parents wouldn't allow me to have one though. They think its gay to have one.

Is it really gay to have one? I don't know and I don't really care.

A few years ago I bought one but they took it and gave it to my sister. WTF!... that was my money and what the hell do they care. I just want something to hug other then a pillow.

of course it's not gay to have a teddybear... I bet loads of guys on this site still have one
I've never had a teddybear (or any kind of toys/plushies) So i hugged onto my pillow or something like that when i was younger.
You can always buy one and pretend it's a gift if you must and then just never show it to your family. Maybe?

If your parents are determined that a teddy isn't for boys, maybe you can search for something which you can hug, but they won't think is 'girly'.

A soft toy which represents something from a 'boy's' film maybe? Something which represents a character which your parents won't think is suitable for your sister.

It's only human to want to hug something and you have the right to choose, but until you can leave home maybe my suggestion would be an acceptable compromise for all of you?

Good luck

Marvin, your parents are COMPLETELY wrong on this one- parents are not always right.

It is ok for boys to have teddies, ABSOLUTELY!
I understand your need or want for a teddy, i have it too.

Jesse is right, LOADS of guys here have teddies, i'm sure a few will jump in and tell you themselves. It is even ok for grown men to have teddies. (and thanks Jesse- Plushie is a new word to my vocabulary- never heard of that before).

I have a teddy! i have a few, my favourite teddy is one that i had from when i was small called Rupert (Rupert the bear). All my teddies are from when i was younger, but i welcome new ones too.

I think teddies are great to have, no matter what age or gender, my boyfriend has lots of teddies *envies* I have 2, and one of them is from him. They are good for emotional support and comfort, definitely helps imo, always nice to have hugs.

You should get one if you want and keep it hidden from your parents, maybe keep teddy in your school bag? if small it's enough. I sometimes take teddy into university in my bag.

No, it's not gay to want a teddy bear. When I was a little kid my dad would always buy me stuffed animals. I probably had a whole shelf full of them. Everybody wants something soft and fuzzy to hug and squeeze. Buy another teddy and hide it from your parents. Remember to treat yourself well my friend.

Thank you Lewis. I always enjoy seeing these pictures.

What is the hairy leg thing down underneath? It looks like a dog's leg?
