Mom to two little scalliwags!
- Oct 25, 2006
My soon to be 12 year old son wants the rainbow Magic Band for our upcoming trip. He likes that it is bright colored and fun and doesn't know the significance of the rainbow. My question is this.....I think and have thought for a while now that he may be gay and hasn't quite figured it out yet or isn't yet willing to say. I want to be as supportive as possible and don't want to put him into any unnecessary, uncomfortable positions while he figures it out. If I get him the rainbow Magic Band, is it at all likely that someone will say something to him? It sounds preposterous to me that anyone would say something insensitive to a child, but I've been to WDW enough times to know that people can and will do just about anything. I'm just concerned that if I get it for him and someone says something stupid, it will make him uncomfortable and might cause him undue worry. I keep going back and forth on it. My gut says get it, explain the context, and prepare him so that if someone says something idiotic, he is ready to ignore it or tell them to mind their own business. I'm just trying to be the best mom possible so I can protect and support my kid. Any advice and positive thoughts are welcome! TIA!
