Ugh... sorry for such clumsy wording! This isn't so much about gay parents but parenting kids in a world where it should be okay to be gay. Not even NFL related, but I want some input! My eldest child is suddenly putting me in so many situations that just feel "wrong."
Where we live sixth graders take ballroom dance. Not so much a dance class as a manners class. How to ask someone to dance, how to accept, how to introduce yourself and others, holding doors open, passing through doors that have been held open, etc. It also lets kids get used to wearing formal clothes, etc. And they go out after wards for ice cream which starts the boy/girl socializing while they are all dressed so nice!
The groups are divided evenly by gender so that the numbers match up perfectly. Every boy has a girl partner to practice with. Where is there room here for the (potentially) gay kid? Somehow the fact that every skill is being taught for a straight couple bothers me. Am I being overly sensitive?
