Know How I Know You're Gay?

You may be wondering about the title of this post. It comes from a movie - The 40 Year Old Virgin - and is a scene between two friends bantering about how each knows the other is gay. But that's irrelevant, frankly.

For some reason, there are in the family, two or three asshats that think it's highly amusing to tell us that the way Jaysen is going, he's going to "turn out gay". More's the point, they tell HIM. He might know a lot about a lot, but for f'ck sakes, he is nine years old. He understand that men and women can love each other, as can men love other men, and women love other women, but he doesn't understand the intricate details of it all.

The thing that pisses me off the most is the fact that despite being told, they carry on. It doesn't matter if we're just popping in for a little while, there for a day or even staying for a while, they carry on.

What they also fail to realise that if Jaysen announces to us one day that he has a boyfriend, then so be it; it'd be the same if Tam announced she had a girlfriend. It's up to them, and not something we're worried about. What "worries" us is the short-sightedness of certain family members being arseholes and telling Jaysen all sorts of things that he doesn't need to worry about for years to come.

For goodness sake, what is it about family. You can chose your friends, but you're stuck with your relatives...

*mutter*

Mmmmn, that is odd telling a nine year old he is gay. Does Jaysen just shrug it off or does he ask you why they say that?
Some people are just mad.

Luckily he's got a thick skin - after all, he deals with me being horrible daily ;) He just gets on with it.
