Ask yourself this: Could anyone sway you to like guys in a sexual way or could they have swayed you in HS?
I'm not talking about people secure in their sexuality, I'm talking about people who are confused or unsure. 14 is the age many start coming into their sexuality. It is a very vulnerable and impressionable time for them. It is no coincidence that that is the time many are "recruited."

LW2 -- What exactly do you mean by physical relationships? Dating? Holding hands? Kissing? Arm around each other at the movies? Dancing? Sleepovers in a closed bedroom? How about sleepovers with a bunch of girls in the living room?

I have a feeling they're not comfortable with their daughter openly dating girls at this age.

Recruited? Are you for real?

LW1: "I am unsure if he has been having affairs all this time and has been blaming me to lessen his own guilt."

He has been. Time to go.

LW2: So open-minded about all this until the rubber might actually meet the road...

If you don't want her dating, period, in HS then make that clear. But don't say you could date a boy but not a girl. That will most certainly backfire on you.

I did - graduated in '86. But I was involved with the theater folks, which is were they tended to congregate. It was never a big deal.

L1: Often, I click on the links to the columns and just start reading without paying attention to whether it's Amy or Abby. The "Thelma and Louise" reference made me not have to check the thread title.

L2: If she hooks up with chicks, at least she won't get pregnant.

LW2: "I am OK with her having those friendships, but I am not comfortable with her pursuing same-sex physical relationships at her age."
So does that mean you're ok with hetero PHYSICAL relationships at her age?

I didn't meet any openly gay people until I was 19. My cousin came out when he was 23 or 24 and I was 21, and he's pretty flaming. Most of the gay people that I know today did not come out until early adulthood or later.

Unless they experiment with a donor and a turkey baster.

Yes. Gays aren't all sunshine and rainbows. There are many things about their subculture you might find... unsettling.

1. The seeds of mistrust have already been planted, the husband is a manipulative scumbag. Walk on.

2. Pull your head out of your butt and quit being a homophobe. So you're more concerned with the sex of the person your daughter chooses than the quality of that person? Shame on you.

3. 12-yr.-olds don't get tired, unless they don't want to do something.

Unfortunately, yes. But he does provide some value in that, if you ever feel bad about someone you care about, you can always say "Well, at least they're not Mutt."

The only type of people I could see that "swaying" in any manner are those who have attractions to people of both sexes. So, someone ends up identifying as gay rather than bisexual. Not really seeing a problem.
Or identifying as bisexual rather than gay.

I don't see a problem, either. I never experimented with girls, but I do think the teen/early college years are ripe with that. Just because she's into girls now doesn't necessarily mean she will be 5, 10 years down the road. But there's no harm in her figuring things out.

Some teens' sexual preference is SET. I know mine was. But others' preferences are more fluid, they don't know yet what they'll end up being/doing/wanting.

Baloney. No recruiting is done, none is necessary. More gays are being born. We're not gonna run out.

"The term has been the target of critical parody.
In 1998, The Onion addressed the term with a satire entitled "'98 Homosexual-Recruitment Drive Nearing Goal", saying "Spokespersons for the National Gay & Lesbian Recruitment Task Force announced Monday that more than 288,000 straights have been converted to homosexuality since Jan. 1, 1998, putting the group well on pace to reach its goal of 350,000 conversions by the end of the year." The Westboro Baptist Church and other groups, apparently believing it accurate, passed along the story as fact. The WBC cited the piece as evidence of a gay conspiracy."

So, edog -- do you belong to the Westboro Baptist Church? It would explain your recruitment comment.

But given that I have had to give my son multiple lectures on when it's appropriate to tease, chase, and kiss the girls, I'm pretty sure he's going to end up a straight male. Oh, I hope he decides that girls have cooties soon ...
I *wish* Lulu would decide boys have cooties.

She's been wearing two rings lately, one old and one she got for Christmas. Yesterday she came home from school with just the new one. She gave the other to a boy.

Nonsense. Why just this morning a group of butchies approached me and tried to lure me into joining their perveted lifestyle with warm glazed donuts and promises of abundant cunnilingis.
