  • Kids are weird little beings. I wouldn't start worrying about him being gay for a long time. There isn't a lot you can do about it if he is.
    Just let him be true to himself.

  • He is 7! Let him have fun, there is nothing wrong with a boy experimenting with these things, just let him know that mascara is for women not for little boys... And if he does turn out gay, there really is nothing that you can do, he is your son, and you should love him unconditionally! They say that people who are gay are born that way, I don't know if I agree with that statement or not though...

  • He's a kid, some boys are sensitive the same way that some girls are 'tough'...it doesn't mean that he's going to be gay, not that you'd stop loving him if he was right? Just let him embrace the real him, if you yell at him for wanting to try new things he's going to only do things to try to please everyone else and he's gonna live a terrible life! Let him be who he is, he may grow out of it but if he does come to you and tell you he's gay in 10+ years just accept him for who he is, he's your son NO MATTER WHAT!

  • he could just be experimenting.i dnt see anything wrong if he wanted 2 be gay, but if u do and u want to try and stteer hiim away, get him into some sports and have him play with boys and girls.i think hes too young for you to ask if hes gay.but i think he might just be curious basically a phase.

  • It could be curiosity because he sees you use it. He could be gay. Who knows? If he is gay, he is the same child you love now. Don't worry and keep loving him and being the best mom you can.
