I wanted to ask you something as a mom of a 12 year old boy dancer who has to deal with stereotyping haters on Instagram. I shield him from a lot of it but he does see some online hate and in school he gets bullied at times. The thing i constantly see is people on his Instagram calling him gay (because he is a boy dancer) and saying it like it's a bad thing. So i guess my question is how do you explain to gavin, who i assume gets this aswel that some people are homophobic assholes?
I have always taught my kids to accept all people regardless of sexuality, race, etc. Gavin couldn’t care any less about those comments. I think because we have never told him being gay is a bad thing. Gavin is confident in who he is and that has always been one of his strengths. He doesn’t go to regular school so he doesn’t have to deal with person to person bullying. I teach my kids to be who they are and be the best version of that!
