Is it okay for a parent to control (or try to curve) their child’s gender/or maybe femininity or masculinity? A friend of mine has a very feminine young child (9) and she’s extremely homophobic. She doesn’t think she is, but she is. Her and her husband have tried to no avail to force him to play football, basketball and things he doesn’t want to do. I’m a friend of the family (Uncle Mike) to this child but they have stopped taking advice from friends and family. The husband is gung-ho and dead set in ensuring this lil boy will be straight. No one has said he’s gay. How can a 9 year old be that? He just doesn’t like things that society says he should like.
As an adult I struggled with bisexuality and right now I’m on the hetero side of things right now but I’m honest with all of my partners and light hearted about life. I think people are people, I guess that’s why I can’t be a dad yet lol. Anyway, I know that you guys will have fun with this one.
