The prevalence of homosexual's on television, radio and magazines is all too common. It is hard to find one television show that doesn't have at least one homosexual actor in it and that's getting harder each year. This years Thanksgiving Day parade had men dancing in high heels while the Christmas parade highlighted overweight male dancers. While dancing men is not an issue, extremely feminine males are a source of great consternation.
Discussing this abnormal behavior with your children is something that can no longer be avoided. If you fail to talk to them about it, rest assured the media, their friends, the public school system or the democrat party will do it for you.
The first thing you need your kids to understand is that the brain is part of the body too and can receive an injury or have an illness like any other. Don't mention sex change operations or any kind of gender swapping surgery as most children won't understand yet. (That could lead to another discussion on the birds and bees) Explain to them how certain men choose to act like other men and certain women choose to act like other women. Explain how some of those same people choose to be attracted to members of the same sex and can result in another child having two mommies or daddies. These decisions feel natural but are the result of a mental illness much like autism, dementia or schizophrenia.
Be sure your child knows it's OK to feel empathy for these people and that it's OK to feel sorry for an abnormal kid with two mommies or two daddies. Do not encourage acceptance, tolerance or ask them to embrace the LGBT community. Homosexual's should, at most, be eligible for pity.
Tell them all this delicately and in words children can understand.
