    I've Adapted

    When I began tyo suspect my son was gay - when he was using the internet for cybersex - I was nervous and apprehensive. I didn't know how I could cope. But I told my son that he didn't have to hide and that whatever he tried or didn't try, I would be there for him. Now, almost a...

    This Is How It Is

    My son (19) came out to me about 5 months ago.  It was hard but I saw it coming.  I kept asking him if he had anything he wanted to tell me for about two weeks before he came out.    It took alot of courage for him and I was glad he did it.  He still has...

    Came Out On Facebook!

    Yep, the first I knew was I was asleep on the couch and my 18 year old daughter woke me holding her laptop, saying: "have you seen this?". She was showing me my 14 year old son's latest Facebook status, it said: "haters gonna hate, but I'm gay". I was stunned, as he had hidden it...

    Can Anyone Survive "half-in" & "half-out?"

    My teenage son recently admitted he is gay - it was an accidental "outting" - but he wants to remain closeted to the rest of the world, even to part of the immediate family living in our home... Is this even possible? Is it healthy? How do I care for him without accidently...

    Anal for straight men is such a stigma. The mans P-spot is reached from the anus. Wanting to stimulate it does not make you gay. Being sexually attracted to men makes you gay
