Fear our Children will talk to us

It happens every single day. Here in Canada, in the United States and around the world ...

I shut my mouth again. At that moment it felt as though my world had come crashing down around me. I was crushed. My mother, who I loved with all my heart, was telling me that she would no longer love me if I was gay. The woman I’d known my entire life would have nothing to do with me if I was gay. This was going so horribly wrong.

“No Mom”, I finally replied, “of course I’m not gay. I suppose what I meant to say was that I haven’t found the right girl yet, and probably won’t, for some time. So stop bugging me about getting a girlfriend. It’s annoying.”

“So you’re not gay, then. So you just haven’t found the right girl yet.”

“Yes Mom.” I said quietly. “And don’t go around spreading what we talked about like you usually do okay?”
