Its not that this little guy thinks he's gay that amazes me, but the nature of his mother. Worth a read.

It's nice to see some tolerance and acceptance modelled. He IS only 7 afterall.

I've been watching the TV show Glee and it's interesting to see the relationship between Phinn (the straight football jock) and Chris the "very gay" fashionable boy who has a secret love for Phinn. Phinn's quite unresponsive to Chris's "special attentions", but there's just not a trace of the homophobic violent name-calling that was required for a male identity when I was growing up.

A small helpful step for "the culture".

This little boy is so fortunate to have such great and loving parents.

Parents like these give me hope for the future!

Many people know that they are gay at a very young age, so I applaud this boy and it is good that some parents would unconditionally love and accept their children. Condescending views that children or even young adults can't know their own sexuality yet can be boundlessly abusive; my own homophobic mother said that when I was 21, years after I had come out to her.

Hi, my fraternal brothers.

Wow, an understanding & loving mother & dad. Loving their "Precious gift from God." Made in HIS, (God's) image & likeness.

Perhaps unfortunately, they are in the minority. How many parents throw them out like a piece of trash?

As for this young boy, I knew that I was gay at 6 years old.

I wish that young boy, an emotionally & mentally, full & happy life.

Heal well, my brothers, heal well.

"I will take that lost boys hand, and I will lead him from the depths of darkness, into the sunshine, forever into eternity." As he is me.
