My 11 year old son is really into nail polishes and lotion. My nair come up missing last week, and I questioned everyone in the house, no answer from anyone so I figured it fell in the trash. a few days later he had a pair of shorts on and noticed that he has no leg hair.
he is always worried about being called a "fag", and he and his brother are always fighting about the word "fag" and "Queer". he asked me one day how to tell if he is gay, and I tried to answer by explaining that either you want to be with a boy or girl, he said that he is attracted to both. I dont care if he is gay, but I would like to know how to help him thru it with peers. (and his brother)

Have you ever heard of PFLAG? It stands for Parents and Friends of Lesbians and Gays. It can be a wonderful resource for you. It might be a good idea to take his brother, too, so he understands that fag and queer are offensive words to gay people (and bisexual people) when used in a derogatory way.
Give him some time. He may be going through a phase, or he may be discovering a very big part of himself. Do some research, and be as supportive as you can be. Listen without judgment, and just be there. =)
