If a guy is calling his dick his "shit," then he has more problems than have been discussed here.

Say Nae to junk, say Yea to family jewels.

Clever of you to reference Gandhi's attitude toward Xians.

The germiest thing anywhere: the handle of a blue mailbox, which --like holy water -- is never cleaned.

In my experience... I'm old, first started the endless coming process in 1970... men in the closet mostly need to witness the happy lives of out gay men. Eventually, they can't stand not having a decent life for themselves. Let him see you -- even from a distance -- having a great life.

This is why I read Dan Savage and have read him for nearly 25 years, yes dear you're old.

Good information and frank talk. Hear, hear, bud, hear, hear.

And... Don't let the Xians rob you of your feeling for the Divine if you have that. A stupid version of Xianity is not the only approach to God. And some other religions have more varied attitudes. Don't let the terrorists win.

Like you, Me, my mother brought the subject up when I was a teenager.

I was 19, in college, not at home. It was 1970. I had left a copy of Jean Genet's A Thief's Journal on the living room coffee table -- not entirely by mistake. So I confirmed my gayness. Mom said I still love you but you are sick and you need help. In fact, this was a couple years before Gayness was no longer officially a sickness.

I said, "I'm not sick, and as long as you think that way, we're not going to talk about it."

I'm pretty sure she was slightly relieved, and we did not talk about it for quite a long time. As the culture moved toward acceptance, so did Mom. But no faster than that. Eventually she came to see that an out gay life had more integrity than ruining the life of an innocent straight woman who a closeted man might have made his wife.

Be as honest as you can SAFELY, live your own life, and let the parents come around when they can.

This might be a good place for this distinction:

Homosexual / Homoemotional

All humans are homoemotional; just some of us are homosexual.

That said, homosexuality is based in a deeper homoemotionality. It's about the heart and mind more than the genitals.

I have had sex with each of the two main sexes, but I, a man, have only ever fallen in love with another man.

So I'm gay.
