I have a problem. All of my life I’ve thought of myself as straight, but now I’m starting to doubt myself. I still want a husband and to have babies, but I’m also thinking about girls too. I don’t want to say anything to my Mom because even though I know she wouldn’t care, I’m so unsure I don’t want to upset her if it’s not really necessary. I just don’t know what to do or who to talk to to find out what I’m really feeling.
Here’s the thing, Prankster – sexuality exits on a spectrum and we may feel anywhere from completely straight to completely gay. Sexuality is also something that doesn’t have to be labeled – you might be bisexual, homosexual or straight, but you can also fall somewhere in the middle. You like who you like.
So my advice is this: explore your feelings (SAFELY) and see where it takes you. Maybe you’ll end up married with a wife and babies. Maybe you’ll end up with a husband and babies. Maybe you won’t. You don’t have to decide right now.
I wish you luck, mah Prankster. It’s going to be an awesome journey for you!
Hi Aunt Becky,
I don’t really have a question I just need to get this out. My five year old told me tonight that a classmate has been grabbing my child’s butt while they wait in line at school. My child hasn’t told anyone but me because they aren’t allowed to speak while they are in line.
I feel sick for my child but also for the other child involved. What the hell is this poor kid exposed to that grabbing ass at school becomes okay? I need a drink but at this point I’ll settle for a (nice, clean) hug.
Dear Heartsick, first things first: HUGGGGGGGS!
Now, onto the depressing bit. You need to report what happened to the teacher and/or principal. Like you said, you don’t know what’s going on at home – maybe it’s nothing or maybe it’s something. Either way, this should be reported.
Child abuse is rarely faked, so it’s important to take any allegations of abuse seriously. If a child comes to you with claims of abuse, call 1-800-4AChild to report abuse or get help.
I wish you the best, Prankster. I’m so sorry.
Pranksters, it’s time for YOU to help! What advice do you want to leave for these posters?
Also: feel free to submit any questions so I can poorly answer them. The link is at the top of the screen!
