I quite agree with you SciFiTeen. The poster clearly cannot understand that you do not choose your sexuality, youi are born with it. I find that the following puts an interesting (though tongue-in-cheek) perspective on it:
The Heterosexual Questionnaire
How do you know you are a heterosexual?
What do you think caused your heterosexuality?
When and how did you first decide you were a heterosexual?
Is it possible your heterosexuality is just a phase you may grow out of?
Is it possible your heterosexuality stems from a neurotic fear of others of the same sex?
If you've never slept with a person of the same sex, is it possible that all you need is a good gay lover?
To whom have you disclosed your heterosexual tendencies? How did they react?
Why do you heterosexuals feel compelled to seduce others into your life style?
Why do you insist on flaunting your heterosexuality? Can't you keep it behind closed doors?
Would you want your children to be heterosexual, knowing the problems they'd face?
A disproportionate majority of child molesters are heterosexuals. Do you consider it safe to expose your children to heterosexual teachers, doctors and other proffessionals?
With all the societal support marriage receives, the divorce rate is spiraling. Why are there so few stable relationships among heterosexuals?
Why do heterosexuals place so much emphasis on sex?
Considering the menace of overpopulation, how could the human race survive if everyone were heterosexual like you?
How can you become a whole person if you limit yourself to compulsive, exclusive heterosexuality, and fail to develop your natural, healthy homosexual potential?
There seem to be very few happy heterosexuals. Techniques have been developed which might enable you to change if you really want to. Have you considered trying aversion therapy?
I think it's time he had an evaluation done - having the emotional maturity of a 10 yo is a huge red flag to me. If he turns out to have psychological issues that would explain why your wife is overly protective of him (his history of living with her and her mother and the divorce does not in any way explain his behaviour) and, in turn, her over-protectiveness would explain why it hasn't been picked up on yet because it acted as a smoke screen.
What does his doctor say? What about his school in Europe? I'd be surprised if nobody had ever approached your wife or your MIL about this...View Thread
