I've been married a long time now (to the same and only wife). I've been a parent a long time now to my brood of joyful not-so-little warriors of the cross. Parenting is something that takes common sense and the ability to listen to those who came before you. We live in a day of empty theorists and inexperienced pontificators in regards to these things.
Take this column from the Huffington Post by "Dave" (the guy who identified his son as gay at age 7 in the same publication) which gushes about how his now 9 year-old son has figured out his "type." Surprise, surprise it's dark-haired teenage boys. There are some unexamined things in this post which, in a foolish generation like ours, slip on through.
First of all, from the most accurate information we can cull, gay men make up less than 2% of the population of the U.S. This is why LGBT is so useful because it is more undefined and elastic. The best data suggests it's probably more around 1.5%. Think about that for a minute. Dave's son has about a 98.5% chance of being straight (or at least not a gay male) yet it's all been figured at age 7.
Next, dad knows his 9 year-old son's type. I don't even know my 13 year-old son's type! Dave then says this: "This has nothing to do with sex. My son is gay, but he is also 9, so he is not the "lustful cockmonster" (thank you for that turn of phrase, Chris Kluwe) that so many homophobes try to paint all gay people as." What kind of dad would even think about saying something like this in regards to their 9 year-old son on a public forum?
Homosexuals love to bring out the very tired projection/supressed homosexual comeback against anyone who disagrees with them. However, in this column someone says a lot of strangely gushy things about pretty boys with dark hair...it's Dave.
