I have recently found my16 year old son messages on the internet that he is trying to be gay.
we were shocked and devastated with this news and we cannot face this matter with him yet. I do remember 2 years ago he once cried:" I m fat and short and girls do not like me" of course it was heartbreaking for us but we could not help him except we tried to change his food and way of eating and tried to be more socialized. when I found out that his close friend is lesbian, I thought he is trying some other options to solve his loneliness emotionally. I need an advise about this matter, it would be great help, because we are almost lost. thank you

People don't "try to be gay" Gay is not a verb. Secondly, maybe he is gay. There is nothing wrong with that. Let your son explore his sexuality - it's his life, not yours. He will talk to you when he is ready IF you are tolerant and understanding. If he thinks you will be angry or upset at him, he won't. As parents, we need to be open to loving our children unconditionally.
