I am probably the very worse at giving talks to my son. I am too blunt. I am just so frank about everything. I am shy as heck but anything I really want I just say it. Like when I see a person who is cute I want to tell them that they are cute. Our society is too oversexualized for that though. People will (and have) assume that I am coming on to them. I remember when I worked at the college that one of the girls I worked with actually told our boss that I hit on her because I told her I thought she was lovely in her dress. I was pissed. Just because I am bisexual doesn’t mean I want in your shorts dude. <—- I am pretty sure those were my words to her when I found out.
Anyways I am rambling like I do entirely too much. My point is that I was trying to make a post about National Coming Out Day and my son walked in and asked me what ‘coming out’ was. I tried to explain it to him but what he got out of it was that you couldnt be gay if you didnt ‘come out’ so he asked when the people we knew were gay came out. So I had to keep explaining and I think I may gotten too in depth about everything. I am not mom of the year but when I got through he told me he wanted to help with my post. He knows that I used to date girls. He loved my old girlfriend Holly. He thought her son Sam was the best and he still asks about them. He knows that one of my best and oldest friends is gay and he knows that my best friend is bisexual. He understands that you can love who you want. That is what I wanted to teach him so I think I came through.
So whether I am a dancing bridesmaid at your beautiful, unique gay wedding:
Or we haven’t met yet, I believe that you can love whoever and those are that meanies about it can kiss it. Go be an ally today. Be a friend. Spread love to everyone you know and let the haters hate.
