My son is gay (via Nerdy Apple Bottom)

This is the first time I’ve ever “re-blogged” a post here in WordPress, but I had to share it. This is a wonderful story.

My son is gay Or he's not. I don't care. He is still my son. And he is 5. And I am his mother. And if you have a problem with anything mentioned above, I don't want to know you. I have gone back and forth on whether I wanted to post something more in-depth about my sweet boy and his choice of Halloween costume. Or more specifically, the reactions to it.

  1. hello Samuel Snoek-Brown , i review your blog , this a nice blog and useful. Great for me. best review for Uncategorized and content. i will plan to read and comment your site.

  2. I keep hearing about this blog post everywhere. Pretty sad people are so lame. This is a cool mom. Maybe if my parents let me be who I was when I was young, I wouldn’t have rebelled when I got older. But, like they say, opinions are like assholes and everybody has one.

    1. Hey, Mickey! Good to see you back online. Are you participating in NaNoWriMo this year? Drop me a line sometime.

      I know what you mean about the rebellion thing, though despite how disparate my views were (and are) from my parents’ views, my parents were always pretty supportive on the important stuff. I remember when I was in high school and rebelling, in whatever small ways I could, against the high school hair code (boys couldn’t grow their hair past their shirt collars–and I’m talking dress shirts, not t-shirts–nor past their earlobes or their eyebrows): I once rewrote the lyrics to Metallica’s “Sanitarium” as a protest song against the hair code, and even though my dad is a traditional Texas boy who didn’t approve of my desire for long hair or my choice in music, he supported my decisions strongly enough that he once suggested I send my protest lyrics to the city newspaper just to make my point clear. Go figure! I wish more parents were like that.
