My daughter is almost 13 and has a friend who recently "came out" to her. I already had concerns about this friend, as she has become increasingly clingy and calls my daughter several times a day. I consider myself fairly open-minded, and have asked even my gay friends what they think of this. The landslide response has been that 12 years old is too young to be delving into any real sexuality, let alone an alternative one. My partner, who is straight, and was once very active in lesbian rights, thinks I'm being intolerant. Admittedly, the friend's announcement DOES factor into my concerns. Not because I'm bigoted, but because my daughter is SO pliable and concerned about others' feelings and not making them uncomfortable, that I'm afraid she will go along with whatever this girl wants, even if she' not okay with it. How do I quell this friendship and get my partner to see that my concerns are valid?

A lot of girls explore there sexuality at a young age..Even if your DD does do something with this friend..Does not mean anything really.. I think you should talk to your DD about it..
Personally I would rather my DD explore sex with another girl then with a boy..At least she can not get pregnant.JMO
