commented on Savage Love
If DUD's discussions with his son have not included discussions of sexual orientation and gender identity, and the kid's already 14, he is behind the curve. He's been hearing things on the streets and in the locker rooms for years - not the best place for real education. I must reiterate a previous comment recommending the Our Whole Lives program. This "sex ed and beyond" program is essential for helping young people understand sexuality and the importance of respect for others in relationships. AND it is done by trained adults who are not their parents. Combine it with some casual conversation at home, and things will open up.
