I found out recently from my son he is into other guys, I'm not judging or be homophobic...but don't we want the best for our children even if it is against our better judgment. Would you try to convert/help him see things differently or let it go? I love him either way and will always support him...I do believe that transgender and homosexuality is sometimes not a choice.

If you truly want to help your son, it would be best to be supportive of his sexuality. While it's getting easier, it's still hard to be gay. Most societies look down on you and you constantly made aware of the fact that there are people who not only don't like you because of your sexuality, but may want to hurt you because of it as well. What he needs most is to know he has loved one's who support him.

I have 2 boys too, but there only 5 and 9 yrs old right now. But if either one of my boys came to me and said that he was attracted to the same side. I would be fine with that and wouldn't try to change anything, cause for one: would you want someone to come in and try to change the way you are? And 2: If you don't care what he is as long as he is safe, then leave it alone.
