Coming out as Gay

My son just came out of the closet. He just said to me, "I am gay".

I said, "Er... no you aren't".

He said, "Yes I am, I am gay".

He's 5 years old, I did say it might be a little soon for him to decide. But he is adamant. He says he is a boy, he likes boys, and although girls are okay, he doesn't really like them. So he is gay.

It's hard to argue that logic.

He is now running around, punching the air and in his deepest voice, chanting, "I am gay! I am gay! I am gay".

I found this charming bit of film of Otis Redding (singing with Carla Thomas).  It made me smile...
For the record, he started out as a well digger and by the time he died he was a producer with several companies with Otis Redding Enterprises bringing in over a million dollars a year.

Here's the original by Lowell Fulson.
