My almost 9y  old son was talking about gay.. So I asked him if he even knew what gay is/means.. he says yeah there is a Happy gay and a "bad gay".Im like what is a bad gay.. why bad? He then goes on and says because its wrong. He knows it means two men loving eachother. So I tell him that there is NOTHING wrong with being gay.. so he ask me: What would you do if Im gay? I tell him, that I still love him no matter what...

The conversation Im having with my son at bedtime:0

Many kids think the 'other' gay is a 'bad' gay. It's up to us to tell them differently... unfortunately, too many parents AGREE with it being a 'bad' gay. My kids will educate your kids on what homosexuality is if you say it's 'bad'. So it's up to you.. educate them, or have my kids do it. :D

 Hate to ask but this had been bugging me .. Does saying "I would STILL would Love you..." insinuate that there is something inherently wrong w/being gay ? Shouldn't the response be more like "I wouldn't do anything , being gay wouldn't change who YOU are so no difference anyhow..

 I think that parents use the word "still" as if to say "I would love you just the same." KWIM?

I didnt want to get into the whole details about being gay or not gay.. right or wrong tonight.. My son is 8y and it was his bedtime.. The infos that I gave him were enough for him to handle.

I told him what I believe and that was that..
