Is it strange for a father to nickname his son "buns" especially if the son grew up to be gay? What do make of this??

  • Not really.. parents come up with weird nicknames.. when you say them once, they stick. My oldest's nickname is ShayBear.. My middle daughter's is Boo & my baby's nickname is Peanuts.

  • Not strange at all, what is strange is someone tying this up with being gay.....

  • I think a parent nicknames their children all kinds of silly things. I call my kid Boo...and not because he is a ghost.

  • Um nick names have NO effect of sexual preference

  • So you think because his father called him buns growing up he somehow sexualized that nickname and it turned him gay??

    Think about it - has ANY nickname ever turned someone into something they weren't already?

  • ..i was tick turd all my childhood. i call my hubby 'boobie' and i call my daughter, veda, a number of things. veda mayta. mater head. mavis. thomas. tomtom. even numb nuts numpty head. i don't think she'll grow up to be a tomato or a dead US president or any of these things. names are just names. furthermore, i risk being attacked here: but people don't grow up to be gay. we're gay or we aren't.

  • I don't think the nickname made him gay...just thought it was a strange thing for a father to call his son. I was more worried about sexual abuse within the family. Many gays claim to have been sexually abused growing up.
