(no subject)

I'm just waiting to see how people are going to find a way to get bent out of shape about this one...

I can't ever remember not knowing about homosexuality. For me, it was right in the same conversation as the birds and the bees: my parents always made it very clear that they were fine with it if my birds/bees experience was with another bird. (Ha! Ba doom tish.)

One of my earliest memories is me at about four years old when my mother pulled me aside in the living room and said, "Honey, I just want you to know that it's okay with me if you're a lesbian." Barely out of toddlerhood as I was, I'd blinked at her, wondering what on earth the big deal was, and asked if I could go outside to play.

Laughs. That is great.
If a little weird...

Apparently she'd just gotten back from a seminar or class or something on the subject. Mom has taken a seminar about every topic under the sun, I swear. So in any case, it was on her mind, and she wanted to make sure she was loving/supportive/accepting/part-of-my-life-no-matter-what kind of thing.

Despite turning out straight, I'm one of the most alphabet-soup-friendly people I know, so I'm glad for being brought up as if homosexuality were nothing weirder than heterosexuality!

Hee. That sounds wildly similar to my mom. I think at some point, around kindergarten, I made the mistake of saying I wanted to be a nurse (in retrospect, possibly the worst career idea I ever came up with, except maybe the ballerina princess veterinarian plan).

"YOU CAN BE A DOCTOR. GIRLS CAN. REALLY."

"... But I wanna be a nurse."

Wow - your ballerina-princess-veterinarian plan could tie in nicely with my doctor-who-flies-a-helicopter plan (age 3). We could be a team!

My brother wanted to be a state representative when he was little. We lived in the state capitol, and fieldtrips to the leg building were cheap. We told him that senators have more power, but they didn't have an electronic vote scoreboard and buttons on their desks, so he wasn't interested.
