Nine year old niece: what does gay mean?
Me: that men can love men and women can love women.
Niece: like men and women love each other?
Me: Yes, and now a man can marry a man or a woman can marry a woman or a man can marry a woman.
Niece: is it okay to be gay?
There we have the terrible difficulties or teaching our children about difference. It was intolerable, ladies and gentlemen. She’s scarred for life.
Or she doesn’t care at all because marriage is a long way off for her.
