    I have been at war with Verizon lately due to a software update they put on my Droid and I have had nothing but problems since then, I got a replacement phone and its still doing the same thing...anyway...

    I took the phone into the verizon store again! to show them what it was doing. This woman was helping me and I was showing her the problem, when my bf called and his pic popped up on the phone.

    She says "oh, i must have dialed someone, or someone is calling"

    My 10 yr old son says, "no thats just isaac, thats my dads boyfriend"!!!!

    I could have died, and then thought who the hell cares, haha.

    Out of the mouth of babes as they say...lmao!!!!

    Great story. But how DID she react? Maybe she thought your young son was using the term "boyfriend" the way kids do among themselves, with no gay meaning to it, Isaac just being your male friend? Some straights can be amazingly clueless. Case in point:

    My late partner & I were checking into an Omaha hotel on a trip, him at the desk signing in for us. We each had matching rings with stones in the 6 rainbow colors. The female clerk noticed his.

    "Oh, what a lovely birthstone ring!" she exclaimed. "You have six children, and each one born in a different month!"

    Coward that I am, I fled from the desk to keep from laughing out loud, leaving him there to fend for himself. A few minutes later I had composed myself and returned. Then she saw my own ring.

    "Oh, and you're a father, too!" she said. "And six children like your friend, you're both very lucky!" I almost choked trying hold it in.

    Nor did she seem to get a hint about us from the fact that we had a reservation for a single queen bed, for 2 adult males with different last names. Actually a pleasant & friendly woman, I don't intend to be mean to her, but as innocent & naive as they come.

    I've found my son and daughter have been great at catalyzing my continued coming out. Two years ago (when my daughter was eight) she yelled to her ten year old brother across of a room of a hundred or so other kids at summer camp: "It's so cool that Dad is gay."

    They seem to take the whole thing completely in their stride, which is great for me.

    It took me a while to figure out that, while I never knew anybody with divorced parents until I was in sixth grade, my kids are growing up with kids from all kinds of families. My best friend's gay uncle and his uncle's partner and adopted a son from Russia the same year my son was born. My son and theirs have grown up together.

    Also, my daughter's best friend's father is another guy who was married to a woman, started a family and then was, like me, inexorably drawn to come out.

    I expect that as they get a little older I will be a source of embarrassment for my kids, but maybe not for being gay. Maybe.

    she paused for a minute but kept on going with her conversation, I think women are much more accepting then men anyway, ya know? But I was just shocked my son threw it out there like that.

    My bf and I don't pretend to be anything than what we are. 2 men in a relationship. He sees us together holding hands and etc, the same as he does his mother and her husband.

    I think its good for a child to see examples of loving relationships no matter what it might entail.

    My bf and I try to sneak a kiss here and there but we usually get caught by my son and my son just giggles and laughs. We have been together since he was 4 so we have pretty much all become a family. He calls my bf his step dad, and my bf calls him his son.

    This is what scares the Krazy Kristians the most...and what will be their ultimate demise.

    I'm not a kids person, but this story is awesome and reminds me of the real power of the human spirit and human love.

    Future Verizon commercial, GO.

    If they ever fix that software problem you were having, anyway.

    I think I just felt one of those "life highs" from this. This kid is clearly too adorable for his own good.
