We were friends with a couple in Dallas. They had 2 sons about the ages of our 2 sons. Our older sons were heavily into sports, as was our younger son.
Their younger son was into playing dress up, and loved toy dishes, and dolls. He would have a “tea party” for his dolls.
The parents were good parents, and did what they could. They would beg our younger son to come and play with their son. The boys were about 4 or 5 at the time. Our son never wanted to go over there because all the kid wanted to play was dishes.
The parents did everything they could to try to make their son more masculine. They would buy him toy soldiers and baseballs, whatever they could think of to change his interests. Nothing ever worked.
They’re all grown now, and that guy is a flaming gay man.
This has been hard on the whole family.
From this one case that I knew well, I decided that this kid was born gay..
Interesting story, yes gays have been around forever and I can’t know the cause in all cases. Still, I don’t think it’s wise to just accept or encourage a kid to switch genders at a young age. Then again fighting against it may do harm as well.
