    Good for them. I would've been mortified. It's not like he won the science fair or saved a bus full of kittens.

    I thought I'd get accolades after I saved a bus full of kittens, but instead I just got scratched.icon_sad.gif

    What's next? Gay debutant balls where we present our gay sons to society?

    The announcement didn't say if he was cut or uncut, hung, or top, bottom, or versatile so it really was kind of useless.

    The Streisand comment shows they do have a sense of humor about the whole thing and it isn't all about being brave, being true to yourself, finding your own path and all that sort of thing.

    I think it is cool. Not jaded enough to pick it apart. Cool parents and a cool kid.

    Love the idea of the debutant balls too haha

    It looks like a mortifying ad for the boy though

    True about it being something that shouldn't make news...

    But what an awesome example of supporting your child no matter who they are. At the moment, we need as many examples of this as we can get.

    That would embarrass the living hell out of me. Sounds like something my siblings would do to screw with each other. Not to mention it put a target on his back.

    How does a 12 year old even know about Barbra?
