I would dress up with him. Wearing the exact same costume or a similar one.

And it's not the bullying I'm concerned about. As has been mentioned, that's the way it goes, you either suck it up, or do w/e you wanna do. I just want to know why all the other parents gotta get involved in somebody else's business. Would any of the parents here, on this message board, not get pissed if I told them how to raise their kid?
Yeah I'm on the same page as you. If I saw another parent make a face that my child noticed and consequently felt self-conscious, them's fightin words.

Well he did go as Daphne from Scooby Doo, and had dressed up as Scooby himself the previous couple of years

The kids weren't the issue, it was the moms who were saying stuff
The woman claims her son is gay at age 5. This is beyond a costume, she's introducing and pushing the kid to make a choice he shouldn't even be considering for at least another decade, if ever at all.

I also agree with those asking where the father (or his influence) is. No matter what side you're on, the whole topic of sexual choices is completely inappropriate for a child this young. She's blatantly using her son to make some sick social statement.

Re: What would you do if this was your son?

I told some of my friends who are fathers themselves about this thread and we eventually got to the question of how would we react if our sons had told us that they were gay. Or how we would feel if we found out, point is what would we do ? Would we accept it, condone it ? It was a fun conversation.

My son wants to be Superman now, I flew him around the house with his Redskins blanket around his neck for his cape. While this is going on I thought about the thread because I have to think. Would this little boy want to be Daphne if he had a clear representation of a man at home ? Or was he born with a gene that guarantees that he'll like guys ?

I just rearead my post and I have to edit it a bit. It's not a lock that he's gonna end up gay, but if he did is it because he was born that way or because there wasn't a man at home.

She's not claiming her son is gay.

She's pretty clearly putting that on the table, despite the fact that him being anything at this point is utter nonsense. Hell, the first words of her blog are "my son is gay." Point is, why put your kid on the f'ing internet dressed up as a drag queen where it will live forever? So, it was his choice to put on the Daphne costume, all questions of proprietry aside, you've now made this something the little guy has to live with forever. Meaning, when he's in high school, kids will still be bringing this up. Imagine he plays sports in school, you don't think opposing fans are going to have giant banners with that pic in the stands? Gay or straight, that shit is going to get old. Completely irresponsible of this woman, in my opinion.

Re: What would you do if this was your son?

I don't agree with her decision to write anything about it in the first place. But she's not saying her son is gay...unless all you read is the headline

Agreed. She says "My son is gay. Or he's not. I don't care, he's still my son."

Especially a bad idea to post the photo of the kid.

Re: What would you do if this was your son?

there are two issues here the first she allowed her so nto dress as Daphne, IMO no big deal second issue she plasterd it all over the internet, IMO big deal, BleedBurgandy is totally correct on this part and SS.

Yes, I think my reading comprehension is to the point where I understood that. The point is, she's introducing the concept and it really doesn't have anything to do with the issue. Her typing the phrase "my son is gay" is a bad idea. If some random commenter wants to infer that, then that's just your typical internet trolling. If she wants to say, "my kid is 5 and wanted to dress up like Daphne, it's not a big deal, he's only 5," and there's no picture posted, I don't think you have near the outrage or attention that this has received. The whole thing comes off as if she's trying to use her kid for a little social activism. On it's face, that's disgusting.

To quote the article's beginning:
Quote:
MY SON IS GAY

Or hes not.
Bold, capitalized, underlined, clearly what she wanted to catch our attention, then a little disclaimer that maybe her billboarded point is not what she meant.

A mother who would post up those words in a public place (internet) for the whole world to see is clearly a questionable parent, so it wouldn't be a shock if this kid turns out mentally damaged and sexually confused.

Only if she's a Republican. Facts about Democrats get hidden until after they're in office. :cheeky-sm

OK, I'm starting a new thread.


Title: SMOOTSMACK IS GAY


First post:

"Or he's not.
<picture of you in pink polo shirt>
Discuss."





It's harmless, right? I never said you were.

Well, like I've said, if all you read is the headline then yeah you might think that all she's saying is her son is gay. But it's smart to never just read the headline. And, like I've said, I don't agree with her decision to even blog about this but I don't think this blog is going to lead him down a path of mental damage or sexual confusion

Now here's the question...

Is this due to abuse, teasing and getting exposed as gay...or is it because homosexuality is actually a mental disorder with inherent emotional issues?
