This guy would probably agree with my father's objection over my brother having a My Buddy and Me doll. My father feared that if he had one of those, this would lead to him playing with other dolls, which of course would lead to him being gay. He tried to convince my mother to get rid of it. Fortunately, my mother didn't follow the same ridiculous thinking he did and let my brother keep it.

I was different from everyone.

I still cry pretty easily, my sports were karate and tennis not football and baseball.

I was a small framed guy, I was an easy target.



Damn, I think I might be gay.


I'm glad they cleared that up for me.

I love my lightsaber!
My hubby got it for me as a wedding gift. It makes noise and lights up But he's disappointed that his yoda lightsaber is shorter than my darth vader one
I wonder why I never hear this stereotype about girls?
I loved playing with boys toys when I was a kid. My barbies were good for nothing other than haircuts, and GI joe fights in the yard. Most of them wound up in flames until my parents wised up and sold them in a garage sale.
I liked playing with boys (and kissing them but thats different )
And I loved sports.
Nobody ever thought that I might be a lesbian, but if I was a boy and did girl things they would think I might be gay
Sounds kind of unfair to me

The best way to tell if your child is gay is when he or she tells you. And it's already too late when the child is born to change their sexual orientation. These people need to let go of the idea that they can change God's will. If you are gay that is his will.

I really think he just looked up to his big sister and wanted to play with her. He did like his GI Joe, though. And it's interesting to me that he liked playing with these girlie toys, knew he was gay from a young age, came out freely in the 70s and without any of the usual issues men have coming out, and was actually very masculine. So you can play with very boy things as a child and be gay and masculine, and you can play with girlie things and grow up to be gay and masculine. I was a tomboy. I preferred playing with cars and playing Star Trek with the boys over playing dolls with the girls. I grew up to be a straight girl who likes high heels and lipstick and prissy things. I guess my point in telling the story was to illustrate that you just don't always know what a child is going to be like when they grow up based on how they play, or what they play with, when they're little.

I just had to laugh when the article mentioned a lack of athletic ability is a sign of "the gay." One of my high school's toughest, most rough and tumble, footballs heroes came out of the closet after graduation.

OMG!!!! this is so funny that i can't not post it.

according to James Dobson:

"Girls can continue to grow in their identification with their mothers. On the other hand, a boy has an additional developmental task—to disidentify from his mother and identify with his father. At this point [beginning at about eighteen months], a little boy will not only begin to observe the difference, he must now decide, "Which one am I going to be?" In making this shift in identity, the little boy begins to take his father as a model of masculinity. At this early stage, generally before the age of three, Ralph Greenson observed, the boy decides that he would like to grow up like his father. 16 This is a choice. Implicit in that choice is the decision that he would not like to grow up to be like his mother. According to Robert Stoller, "The first order of business in being a man is, 'don't be a woman.'"17

Meanwhile, the boy's father has to do his part. He needs to mirror and affirm his son's maleness. He can play rough-and-tumble games with his son, in ways that are decidedly different from the games he would play with a little girl. He can help his son learn to throw and catch a ball. He can teach him to pound a square wooden peg into a square hole in a pegboard. He can even take his son with him into the shower, where the boy cannot help but notice that Dad has a penis, just like his, only bigger."

Holy crap....
It sounds like they are trying to sterilize children for any possible gay germ
my dad played ball with me. It doesnt mean I grew up to be a man
So all boys with single mothers are doomed to be gay?

"Which one am I going to be?"

oh God, that's too much.



My friend has parents that subscribe to all the Focus on the Family magazines and kids magazines and stuff. We have a good time poking fun at the magazines, especially the "Dear Abby" type section. I feel bad for her though; she's not like her parents but they're still her parents and she doesn't want to disappoint them. She's not lesbian as far as I can tell, but still.

At least you can laugh at it. What else you gonna' do but cry, right?

Folks who think you can rewire your sexuality are never going to listen to reason and will therefore always wholeheartedly believe in shite like this.

according to James Dobson:

"Girls can continue to grow in their identification with their mothers. But, they need to be monitored closely. If baby girls are nursed they should only suckle for nourishment. If they seemed too obsessed with the breast or become too excitable at the bare breast this could be an early warning sign of lesbianism. A rubber band around the leg can be helpful here. At times of over excitement a quick snap of the band is excellent aversion therapy for impure thoughts. Even at 18 months proper gender imprinting is possible."
