From That Neat Blog. Parenting the way it should be.
My youngest son loves to ask questions. I sometimes forget he’s only 5 because his vocabulary is extremely immense. But there are some words he doesn’t know. Gay was one of them.
Last Friday night, we were watching some TV to wind down the school week for my boys and work week for me. During a commercial break, Peanut looked at me and asked, “Mom, am I gay?” I was a little taken aback. I asked him what he thought the word gay meant. He replied, “It means you’re not married, right?” I couldn’t help but giggle a little.
Before I give my reply, let me tell you a little bit about our family. My boys see homosexuality (in the sense of two men or two women being in love) as completely normal, as they should. It’s so normal to them that they don’t understand it’s different enough to be labeled as being “gay”. Love is love to them.
