    Firstly I have no idea where this thread belongs so i put in in Society.

    Well anyway i was browsing Reddit and i came across something titled "Parenting, you're doing it fabulously right" Basically it was this picture http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-X4YzN45A1k...cture%2B10.png


    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?

    Of course he doesn't understand it, he probably learn't in one of his sex ed classes or something and says it to try and get more friends, its just a phase, guarantee

    Good for him I say, whether he knows it for sure yet or not. Having the confidence to say it is the important thing.

    He's barely out of his nappies, how is he supposed to know his true sexuality at that age? :lol:

    It'll be interesting, as instead of having to come out as gay he'd have to come out as straight

    It's very possible to know who you're sexually attracted to at the age of 7.
    I found girls attractive when I was 6.
    no you didnt.

    edit:
    so what you are saying is at the age of 6 you wanted to pork other 6 year olds? really? no. you werent sexually attracted.

    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.

    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?

    I didn't know what I liked at that age. Based on societal standards of beauty it was possible to determine who was 'attractive', but I wasn't sexually attracted to anybody at that time.

    Thinking someone is generally attractive isn't the same as sexual attraction.

    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.

    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.

    I remember I felt aroused by the female physique after seeing a lingerie ad that came up on the TV when I was 6.
