Does anyone else highly doubt a seven year old would be aware of their sexuality? Did you personally really understand sex, never mind same sex relations when you were in year 2/3?
Have his parents basically made him think he is gay?
Yeah, I'm with you on that OP. I don't believe someone so young could possibly know their sexuality.
My guess is this will cause problems later in life if he has to come out as straight.
Hell, I don't think a seven year old could make a reliable claim as to being heterosexual.
My daughter will be 7 in September, and she has never shown any interest "of that sort" in either boys or girls. She plays with both boys and girls and sees them as her friends (and the ones she dislikes, are not her friends) and that's literally it!
I know I certainly didn't start to "fancy boys" until I was coming up to about 10.

Seriously, who cares? You're probably right that a 7 year old doesn't know about their sexuality, I suspect it's something that nobody really knows until puberty, but why does it matter?
because in their attempt to be libral non-controlling parents who want their kid to decide they have done the exact opposite and planted an idea into their kids head.
