No he isn't too young to know weather he likes boys or girls, it's good to know that his parents are open minded and not to judge people,Last week my 11 year old son told me he is gay. I told him that that was OK and he has been brought up to accept people no matter what thier race sexual prefrence ect. He knows he is loved and his Father is also supportive of this.I also told him he was too young to be thinking about having sexual relations with anybody, boy or girl. I also let him know that everyone is not as accepting of differences in what most people would find normal. Now I am afraid for him. I'm afraid of how the world will treat him and I don't know what to do. As Iv'e said he has been raised to accept others and be open to peoples differences but it also makes me afraid that he will expect that from other people, and lets face it, that's not going to be the way things will be. He has already told one of his friends and I'm afraid when school starts back up there may be reprecussions for his openess. Any advice would be appreciated.
Don't be afraid of that when his school goes back,
If there real friends they won't care!
And there won't get repercussion for his openess and now days that's bullying and harsment! And won't be tolerated!
I'm gay myself, he has made me realize that maybe time to tell my friends and family I'm gay,
(ive know since I was 9 and now 20 and nobody knows,)
he should help me coming out! Lol very scared in telling my family as there homophobic advice for coming out would be great!
