So I am going to try something new. Video seems to be the “in” thing. So I started a YouTube channel. My first video is about my 10-year-old coming out to us as bisexual.
If reading is still your preferred method I have not forgotten you.
My 10-year-old is Bisexual
My ten-year-old has come out to me as being bisexual. There’s nothing wrong with that. We have raised our children that love is love and we accept everyone no matter who they love.
A year ago he came to us and told me “mom, I think I’m bi”. All right well if you are that’s cool buddy. Then he came to me last week and said mom I’m bi. I’m like oh, are you? He’s like yeah and he started telling me all about this crush he has on this kid at school. His face just lit up and it warmed my mommy heart to see him light up telling me all about his crush.
Then he left the room. I’m gonna be honest. Like I said you know we’ve taught them love is love, I really don’t care who anybody loves. But then I thought to myself after he left the room isn’t he too young? he’s only 10. how can he know that he’s bi maybe I’ll wait a couple of years and see if he tells me if he’s still bi.
Then I felt so wrong. Here’s the thing if he came to me and told me all about a crush on say a girl named lily I’d been like right on baby and I wouldn’t have questioned it. We don’t question our children when they come to us and tell us they’re straight. I mean they don’t tell us they’re straight, but when they tell us about a crush on the opposite sex we don’t question them. We don’t go are they too young maybe we’ll wait a couple years, are they really sure. So I felt like shit that my first thought after he left the room was is he too young. I snapped myself out of that and my 10 year old’s bisexual. That’s okay and I accept that, I love him for who he is.
For anybody wondering why am I putting my son’s business on the internet. I used to blog full-time and my children are used to mommy putting everything on the internet. Since they each turned seven I don’t put anything on the internet without asking them,
I asked my ten-year-old the other day at dinner can mommy share this on the internet? He said yes, I said are you sure? He goes yes mom because people need to know that it’s okay and that they’ll be loved anyway.
I’m so proud of him
