On Being Gay (Child's View)

Shared by my nine year old recently:

"Mom, you know what would be good about being gay? You never have to go to the mall with your wife! And you can do manly stuff together like go dirt biking."

Other than stifle a guffaw, I wasn't sure how to react to that. There are just so many things to say, so many of them not appropriate for a nine year old level of understanding. So I just let it go. For now.

I'm not sure where the aversion to the mall came from. One thing's for sure, being gay does not give you a stay-out-of-the-mall card!!
