This is my baby cousin Max. He is about to turn five, and since Max has been able to talk he seemed to love princesses, dresses, and other feminine things. Every second of every day he asked for skirts and dolls, but his dad was always put off by the idea. He said it was a bad thing to encourage these behaviors. My aunt on the other hand saw no problem with this and just wanted her child to be happy. They’ve seen famous child psychologists, and other types of therapist to uncover what his problem was. Until one doctor said, “He likes wearing dresses, who cares.” Then recommended they not force anything on him that had to do with gender and let Max pick for himself.

This child loves being a boy! He likes to eat dirt and hit on the ladies, but at the same time just wants to dress like a girl. And this Christmas he got his wish. three dresses and a Batman costume. After opening gifts I asked if he liked girl clothes better then boys and he told me.
“I like Batman and Princes Belle, I don’t want to choose.”
I always knew he was a smart kid.

13 Do's and Don'ts When Your Child Comes Out

EVERYONE LOVES CAKE

DO: Bake them a gayke!

Congratulations! Your son or daughter just did a very brave thing by coming out. Celebrate with a rainbow colored “gayke.”

IT’S ABOUT THEM 

DON’T: Make it about you.

It’s a big deal that your child was courageous enough to reveal their sexuality. Focus on them, because it is their moment.

LOVE YOUR KID

image

DO: Love your child unconditionally

You’ve loved them since birth. Why would anything change now that you know they’re gay?

GUILT IS NOT A DESTINATION

image

DON’T: Give them a guilt trip

There isn’t anything wrong with your son or daughter. Don’t make them feel guilty about who they are.

STICK UP FOR THEM

image

DO: Defend them

Parents should be prepared to defend their children no matter what. Be ready to stick up for your LGTB son or daughter, because living openly can be tough sometimes.

IT’S THEIR HOME

image

DON’T: Kick them out of the house

It’s their home. Just because you struggle with their orientation doesn’t mean they stopped being your child. Do not kick them out of the house.

YOU STILL NEED ORANGE JUICE

DO: Treat them normally

Remember, being gay doesn’t exempt them from helping out at home. You still need orange juice, so send them to buy some.

THEY AREN’T BROKEN

image

DON’T: Try to fix them

They aren’t broken. This is who they are, so don’t try to change them.

SAFETY FIRST

image

DO: Talk to them about safety

As a parent, it is your responsibility to teach them to live safe and healthy lives. Some of the specifics may have changed, but the lessons still need to be taught.

ASSUMPTIONS ARE BAD

image

DON’T: Make assumptions

Now that you know about your child’s sexuality, don’t make assumptions based on stereotypes. They are still the same person, so unless they already loved Queen or Melissa Etheridge, don’t rush out and buy them gifts.

ALWAYS LISTEN

image

DO: Listen to your child

Your child will need to talk about their life. This includes their relationships. Be there to listen when they need it.

YOU’RE NOT MATCH.COM

image

DON’T: Fix them up

You are not a dating service. Don’t try fixing them up with any other LGBT person that you meet. 

GET ACTIVE

image

DO: Get active

LGBT issues are front and center. Stand with your child for their rights. Just like you would if they were straight.

I just really loved this when I saw it, so I decided to make a post.

I'm trying to explain sexualities to my mother.

We’re watching a show called “lady boys” about the transgender females in Thailand, and two British males with trans partners were saying that they didn’t see themselves as gay, so my mum retorted “but you must be” so I decided to give her a tumblr education on sexuality and she seemed to understand pan sexuality and asexuality to an extent, so I feel like I’ve educated her a little bit.

Ok, mum, you can’t decide who I’m gonna love. You can’t cry because she’s my girlfriend. I love her…why do you have to be so close-mind? uh..

I will marry her. Whatever you want or not.
