Adorable

Latest story on I'm from Driftwood:

“You and Aba are gay,” my son said to me.

We were in the car, on the way to school.

“Yes, we are,” I said.

“I think I want to be gay.”

“Well, you’ve got plenty of time to figure that out,” I replied (he’s four). “And you know we’ll love you whether you’re gay or not.”

A pause.

“Okay.”

Thoughts:

  1. Adorable :-) I wonder if C and I will ever have a conversation like that.
  2. Just for reference--as discussed in the Prop 8 trial last week--children of gay parents wind up identifying as gay in the same percentages as children of hetero parents.
  3. I wish my parents would have said that.

Unfortunately, blogger munges my typepad name into an unreadable ID. I guess I'll have to start signing my comments.
