Age for first kiss?

I really dont think there is some sort of age restriction for kissing. I had mine at 12 and my friend had his a year younger, yea he had his at 11 and he didn't turn into some weirdo. even though kissing at that age still sounds a bit strange. My opinion is that people should loosen up, its just lips touching lips. And what about disney princess books? almost everyone of them has a prince kissing the princess and parents let kids read them and those kids are fine. You should trust your son, if he is going to grow up and become a man he should be capable of making good decisions and not go have sex.  Anyways kids around that age usually find anything related to sex, hormone and puberty really disgusting and repulsive. So unless your son is not someone who you would think is mature and responsible enough to handle these kind of things you should just relax. 

More bois coming out :)


13-year-old comes out as bisexual in the most adorable, nerdy way

Coming out as a young teen to your parents can be an intimidating prospect. One 13-year-old boy found a clever and adorably nerdy way to come out to his as bisexual.
A man shared the story to Reddit with a post to r/lgbt titled, “So my 13 year old step son came out today. This is how he did it…”

He shared what his stepson’s letter translated to:
So decoded it reads (with his errors)
‘Before you read the next letter please don’t talk about the subject to me or anyone else within twelve hours of reading it. This has taken a lot of nerves to write what you are about to read.
‘Well to start with I am well you see I am bysexual and someone called Kyle asked me out and well I said yes so we have been going out now since Tuesday twenty eighth of June. I don’t know what to say but am feeling a little awkward right now.’
The man said he had some fun with “bysexual,” reporting that he called his “other half ‘buy-sexual’ for the pleasure she derives from shopping.”
A commenter had suggested that perhaps being “bysexual” is when you are bi for someone named Kyle.
The letter was not only effective, it was well received, the stepfather who posted it reported.
“He is so happy and, once we established Kyle wasn’t 40, so were we!” he said. “So happy wanted to share!”
We’re glad he did. It is always uplifting to hear a story of parents accepting their LGBTQ children, especially when it is as charming a tale as this one.

13 year old gay boy needs an answer

I'm a gay 13 year old, and theres this guy that I really like. I just met him 2 weeks ago, but from when I first met him, I had a major crush on him. He's sweet, funny, interesting, and super cute. I just love being around him, and when he smiles at me, I get butterflies in my stomach. In a good way. The thing is, I'm not sure if he's gay. We both like theater, and he always likes talking to me more than other people. We have a ton of jokes, and he smiles at me and he always fixes his hair in the cutest way. I'm not sure if he's flirting or if he's just a sweet guy. What should I do?

Possible answers:

I was pretty much in the same boat and there were no clues, except I had know n him all year and was in his class the previous year. I suggest not to act on anything as you really have no idea and he may take offense to it or whatever. So, I told my friend I was gay, and I figured if he was too, then he would tell me, and that he would act on that but nothing ever happened. 

I think you should try to hang out with him more, outside of school possibly, where you both can be alone together but otherwise and most importantly, get to know him better as a person, and a friend, regardless of what his sexuality might be, these things take time.

I think that you should take things slow, since you aren't sure what his reaction to this will be because you aren't sure if he is gay or not.

You can start out by becoming his friend. You have the common interest of theater, which is really great and something you can start with. From there you can get to know him even more and find out some of his other interests and what he likes and dislikes, and he can do the same about you. Then the two of you will be able to trust each other more and you will be able to tell him that you are gay. Maybe telling him will allow him to feel comfortable down the line with telling you that he is gay, IF he is. If he is straight, then the two of you will be able to stay friends at least, which is great.

So basically, hang out a bit outside of school and just get to know each other a bit more, and take things slowly. Build up a friendship and when you are both comfortable with each other, go from there.

LGBT in Middle Schools

U.S. middle schools are unsafe for many LGBT students, with climates that are even more hostile than those experienced by LGBT high school students. Biased and derogatory language, especially homophobic language, was very common and middle school students heard biased remarks not only from their peers, but from school personnel as well. Middle school students also faced harassment in school, both verbal and physical in nature, with sexual orientation and gender expression being the characteristics most commonly targeted. These experiences led many middle school students to miss classes and entire days of school because they felt unsafe, and students who experienced high levels of harassment or assault were at risk of increased absenteeism. Students who were frequently harassed reported lower grade point averages, suggesting that a negative school climate may hinder students’ ability to succeed academically. Unfortunately, incidents of harassment and assault often went unreported to school authorities and when staff were notified, few students said they effectively intervened. Not only did middle school students experience more hostile school environments than those in high school, they also had much less access to school-based resources and supports that can help to create safer and more affirming schools, such as Gay-Straight Alliances, supportive school personnel, and inclusive curricular resources.

 It is clear that there is a need for action to create safer school environments for LGBT middle school students. As discussed above, findings from GLSEN’s 2007 National School Climate Survey highlight the important role that educators and institutional supports can play in remedying the situation. However, few middle school students reported that they had access to these institutional supports in school. GLSEN’s work is devoted to addressing the urgent need to create safer and more affirming schools for all students. To this end, we recommend the following measures for middle school administrators, educators, education policymakers and others concerned with school safety and students’ experiences in our nation’s middle schools:

 • Implement comprehensive anti-harassment policies that specifically enumerate sexual orientation, gender identity, and gender expression as protected categories, and with clear and effective systems for reporting and addressing incidents that students experience; 

• Support Gay-Straight Alliances and similar student-led clubs that address LGBT students’ issues and work to improve school climate; 

• Provide training for middle school staff to improve rates of intervention and increase the number of supportive staff available to students; and 

• Increase middle school students’ access to appropriate and accurate information regarding LGBT people, history, and events through inclusive curricula, library resources, and access to Internet resources through school computers.

Homophobic Bullying

Homophobic bullying is when people behave or speak in a way which makes someone feel bullied because of their actual or perceived sexuality. People may be a target of this type of bullying because of their appearance, behaviour, physical traits or because they have friends or family who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, or questioning or possibly just because they are seen as being different. 
"Telling everyone in the dining hall, class, individuals, family at community events/school events that I am gay (I am not gay), even going up to my parents telling them I am, and saying crude things, homophobic things, but I am not gay." 
Like all forms of bullying, homophobic bullying can be through name calling, spreading rumours, cyberbullying, physical or sexual and emotional abuse. Young people have described to us how they have been subjected to hate campaigns against them which can start off within the classroom and then moved onto social media. This has devastated those being bullied in this way and some have moved schools and had their lives disrupted because of the actions of the bullies.
Not only does this affect a young person’s self-esteem, emotional health and wellbeing but it also can have an effect on their attendance at school and their attainment. This type of bullying can also include threats to 'out' you to friends and family about your sexuality, even if you are not gay, lesbian or bisexual. 

Tips on dealing with LGBTQ bullying

If you're being bullied in this way you need to tell your parents and report it to a teacher. Keep a diary of the remarks or behaviour. If you feel unable to speak to your parents or a teacher, perhaps you can approach another adult you can trust to get some help. Hopefully if you have good friends, they can give you support to help get it stopped too.
If you feel able to, ignore the bullying so you are not giving the bully the reaction they are looking for. You can also be assertive and let them know that they are the ones that are looking stupid and ignorant. It is important to note, that if you feel they could get aggressive, then do not put yourself at risk as your safety is more important.
If this bullying spills over into threats or violence then it should be reported to the police as a hate crime. Many police forces have specialist units to deal with these incidents.
If you are being bullied online or via social media, take screenshots and keep them as evidence to show your parents, the school or the police.
Ask the school to do some work on LGBTQ bullying within your school if you feel able to, sometimes educating others can help enormously in making them realise their actions and consequences.
In many cases the people who are picking on you are projecting their prejudice on to others. They may also hear homophobic remarks being used by other people who hold outdated attitudes and think it is acceptable to act in this way when clearly it is not. This can often show their ignorance and closed minds.


There's nothing like the first love

There's nothing like the first love. You've never had these feelings before and you imagine that no one else has ever felt this way about anybody. Your boyfriend is the greatest thing ever and you want to be with him all the time. Your senses become alive as you fall in love for the first time. You're not even thinking of the possibility that you may break up because that has never happened to you before. First love is filled with the optimism that you will be together forever.


FCKH8 is a for-profit company that was founded in 2010, which sells t-shirts and accessories that features slogans endorsing the social activist causes of feminism, homophobia, and racism. The company has released several media marketing campaigns to accompany sales of their products, some of which have been the focus of criticism.FCKH8 has responded to this criticism by stating that their t-shirts could help spread awareness and spark conversations of the causes. 

Gay rights

FCKH8 has had several campaigns and products that center upon LGBT issues, such as a video aimed at Chick-fil-A's same-sex marriage controversy.In 2013 FCKH8 announced their intent to mail out 10,000 copies of the coloring book Misha & His Moms Go to the Olympics to Russian families in response to the then recently passed Russian gay propaganda law.The plan was met with concern from some social media users, who stated that possession of the books would put the families at risk of legal and physical harm.

Ferguson and anti-racism

In September 2014 FCKH8 released a video entitled Hey White People: A Kinda Awkward Note to America by #Ferguson Kids, which featured children from Ferguson wearing t-shirts created by the company while reading racism statistics and commenting upon stereotypes. The video ended with the mention that interested parties could purchase t-shirts from FCKH8 and that part of the proceeds would be donated to five anti-racism causes.The online magazine ColorLines heavily criticized the video, as they felt that FCKH8 was using racism as a marketing tool to sell t-shirts. FCKH8 responded to ColorLines by claiming that they were "creating controversy", criticizing their post as click bait, and requested an apology.
The video has also received some criticism over the compensation the children received in the video and one of the parents stated that her children received about $50 compensation apiece for their performances.

Drop F-Bombs for Feminism

In October 2014 FCKH8 released the video Potty-Mouthed Princes Drop F-Bombs for Feminism. The video consists of young teen boys aged six to thirteen talking about the gender inequality that is found in society. The children occasionally use profanity during the video while they speak in relation to statements and situations females face in society. Like the Ferguson video, the video features t-shirts sold by FCKH8 and the statement that $5 from the sale of each shirt will be donated to five related causes.
The video was heavily criticized by media outlets, many of which accused FCKH8 of capitalizing upon feminist values in order to sell t-shirts.The Washington Post remarked that they felt the video was "provoking solely for provocation’s sake" and that the company "has built a veritable empire by throwing the veil of social good over more capitalist ambitions." Due to the reaction to the video Potty-Mouthed Princes Vimeo and YouTube removed it from their sites, but later reinstated the video.

Criticism and reception

FCKH8 has received criticism for their marketing campaigns, with most respondents criticizing the videos as a way to sell t-shirts.Naysayers of the company such as the Christian Science Monitor have criticized the campaigns, with the Christian Science Monitor stating that the Potty-Mouthed Princes campaign "betrays a social media marketing perspective devoid of ethics. The video’s ethos is so steeped in a “Generation Like” mindset that having the video widely “liked” and “shared” is clearly what matters most—resulting in the company’s decision to push boys as young as age 13 into the roles of cultural provocateurs." FCKH8 has also received criticism from a parents of two children featured in the Hey White People video, as she felt her children's compensation was too low when considering the amount of money the company received from t-shirt sales.
The company's campaigns have also received some praise and defense, and a writer for Slate commented that Potty-Mouthed Princes's effectiveness stemmed from YouTube videos that featured children cursing, as it is "fun to watch boys shatter precious princes tropes and refreshing to see  kids straightforwardly announce the necessity of feminism at a time when grown men and women are still tip-toeing around the word." Some of the parents of children featured in the FCKH8 campaigns have also defended the works, stating that the videos helped raise awareness for sensitive topics.

FCKH8 response

FCKH8 has responded to the criticisms, stating that their videos are meant to raise awareness for various social causes and spark conversations.They also commented that they felt that the takedown of the Potty-Mouthed Princes video was censorship and that "This censorship gets to the exact point that the boys in the video are making ... that society finds it more offensive for a young teen gay boy to say f*** than they do the fact that 1 out 5 boys are sexually assaulted." They have also stated that they are unafraid of the backlash from their campaigns, as they feel that the social causes are more important concerns.
They responded to concerns of profiteering with the sale of their anti-racism shirts, claiming that they did not make enough from t-shirt sales to make large profits..

Du Er Ikke Alene (You Are Not Alone) The Happy Ending

Brendan Jordan

In October 2014 Brendan "went viral" after dancing moves from Applause in the background of a live broadcast on NewsChannel 8

The Buzz

The 9th October 2014, NewsChannel 8 was filming Brendan Jordan in the background of their live duplex about the opening of a mall. While being filmed, Brendan started to reproduce the dance moves of Applause from Lady Gaga.
The next day, Lady Gaga tweeted that she "liked him", while the drag community - including RuPaul and Pandora Boxx was actively sharing the video. The video was also widely diffused by medias like The Today Show, ABC News,The Daily Mail and POPSUGAR
During the last three months, the video has been viewed more than 3.5 millions times.

"Going viral"

 October 2014, Brendan is on the stage of The Queen Latifah Show where he met RuPaul.

In November 2014, he was a model for the American Apparel brand. He was chosen for the way he used his platform to raise awareness towards the LGBTQ communuty.
On 14 February 2016, Jordan came out as gender fluid at the "Human Rights Campaign's Time to Thrive conference.
PS: Brendan Jordan is a very famous YouTuber boy who has a big channel full of awesome videos of himself. Just YouTube Search: Brendan Jordan.

Brendan Jordan Comes Out as Transgender:

Brendan Jordan, a viral internet star who won over fans with his “Vogue” dancing in the background of a news broadcast, has come out as transgender.
The teen star gave a speech at HRC’s Time to Thrive conference this week while introducing trans model Andreja Pejic.
“Like most teenagers, I’m still figuring it out. I’m starting to identify as one, or as part, of the trans community. I can’t really label it, because, you know, some days, my more feminine side comes out — the ‘she,’” Brendan said (via NewNowNext). “Some other days I don’t feel like putting on my fabulous mask, and the ‘he’ comes out, and I’m totally OK with that. And I don’t know who I am, or where I will be going in the future, who I will be 10 years from now but I’m still a teenager. I just like the limitless feeling of it, and I’m perfectly fine with who I am now. I just identify with both genders, so I go by the pronouns he or she and it’s just what I’m happy with.”
Brendan later confirmed the news on his Twitter account and said he identifies with being gender fluid.
When his grandmother's car pulls into the driveway after school, Brendan Jordan hops out of the backseat in black knee-length shorts, a polo emblazoned with his school's logo, and low-top lace-up sneakers covered in glitter. Across the street, a young girl spots him and snaps a photo on her phone.

"Did you see that?" Brendan squeals, his hazel eyes widening. He says he could see the girl's fingers pinching outward to zoom.
"People are sometimes nervous to come up and ask for a picture," he later tells me. He prefers when fans approach him — he says they'll leave with better pictures of him that way.
Fame seems to come easily for Brendan, who about a year ago woke up an internet celebrity.
Here's how it went down: Brendan and his little sister Hailey convinced their mom Tracy to drive them to the grand opening of a massive mall erected near their home in Las Vegas, Nevada. When a crowd gathered behind a local live news broadcast, Brendan shimmied his way to the front and danced to Lady Gaga's pop anthem, "Applause."
Brendan begged his mom to take the family to the Downtown Summerlin mall that fall night, but the grand opening of a massive mall was the last place his mom, Tracy Jordan, wanted to be. It was a school night for Brendan and younger sister Hailey, and they would almost certainly end up sitting in rush hour traffic.
But in Summerlin, Nevada, a community in the Las Vegas valley where the Jordan family lives, a mall opening is kind of a big deal. Especially this mall, which, for six years sat unfinished, a nine-story steel frame looming over Sahara Avenue as a reminder of the disastrous economy. When it finally opened on Thursday, October 9, 2014, the city threw afour-day street festival to celebrate. Local news crews were on site to cover the event.
"It was going to be a big deal," Tracy told Tech Insider. "And my kids love to shop."
So they loaded into the family car and went, unaware that Brendan's life was about to change. That night would set into motion a chain of events that catapulted the 13-year-old into internet fame.
We spoke with Brendan and his parents, Tracy and Chris, at VidCon, a YouTube-sponored convention held in Anaheim, California, to learn what it's like to become an overnight celebrity.
It hardly surprised Tracy when her son — goofy, loud, and wildly unapologetic — positioned himself dead-center in front of the KLAS-TV Channel 8 crew outside the Downtown Summerlin. When the cameras rolled and the reporter described the opening-night scene at the mall,Brendan broke into dance.
You might have seen it.

Jude and Connor

Last week, the progressive ABC Family drama The Fosters broke new ground, featuring the youngest gay kiss in TV history. Here, the teen who received the kiss dishes on the scene. 
In the pilot of The Fosters, 13-year-old Jude Jacob, played by Hayden Byerly, is welcomed into Stef Adams Foster and Lena Adams Foster’s home after being tossed around the broken foster care system. In Stef, Lena, and a household full of other siblings, Jacob has finally found a home where he can feel safe and a family whom he can depend on.
This past seasons has been closely tracking the relationship of Jude and schoolmate Connor (Gavin Macintosh), whose close friendship has been gradually blossoming into first love. On Monday’s episode, the two shared an on-air kiss after weeks of mixed messages and flirtations from Connor. The kiss between 7th-graders Jude and Connor is being hailed as a momentous occasion for LGBT youth: the youngest lip-lock between two gay characters to ever air on national television.
So, how did you and Gavin prepare for the big scene?
Over a long period of time. It took a while to get to the point where the writers were able to write it into the story just because Gavin and I weren’t really comfortable early on playing this role and doing such a serious thing with one another. It’s kind of interesting to kiss someone who you’re friends with who’s also the same sex when you’re interested in the opposite sex. They brought up the idea close to the end of Season One and that’s when they started talking to us more about it. And to prepare for it, Gavin and I started thinking about all the different people that would be watching this and the difference that it would make in the world. If that’s the motive of what you’re doing then you have a pretty good reason to do it. It was a long time of kind of coming to terms that we’d be kissing each other. 
When you two finally pull back from the kiss, there’s a look of confusion on both of your faces. What do you think was going through Jude and Connor’s heads?
I think the confusion on Jude’s face was because Connor was kissing Daria and now he had kissed Jude. He was confused as to whom Connor liked and I think that really played through Jude’s head. Like, “Wait a minute. He just kissed me but he’s been kissing Daria. How does that work?” And Connor was sort of confused in the same way. He’s like, “I like kissing Jude, but I’m told I should be kissing Daria.” The confusion was a little different for both of them, but in the end they’re both confused about who Connor was actually attracted to.
From the pinky holding in the movie theater to the actual kiss, it seems like Connor has been making the first move a lot of the time. How’s this affecting Jude and Connor’s friendship?
It’s interesting. It’s like when Jude said that Connor was the one that kissed him in the tent, yet Connor has been initiating the contact between the two of them. But at the same time he’s not expressing how he feels. So I think Jude is kind of confused about that—he doesn’t really know how to handle that, or what to do. He’s just sitting back and letting Connor figure out what he’s comfortable with and how he feels and Jude’s just waiting for him to know how he feels because Jude understands himself and knows what he likes.
How might Connor and Jude’s parents react to the news that they’ve kissed?
I think that Stef and Lena have been through some of these issues before and they’re both gay so they’ll be very understanding and loving, and they’re more open about whether Jude is gay or straight. And they’re a lot more accepting of how he feels than Connor’s dad. I think that it’s going to be interesting to see them maybe butt heads a little bit because I don’t think Connor’s dad will be very accepting—we’ve seen he’s been kind of homophobic. It’ll be very cool to see how he and the moms react to Judd and Connor eventually telling them this.

How do you think LGBT youth felt watching the scene?
I hope they felt happy. It was very important to portray a character that is going through a struggle that so many people go through. I want people to watch the show and see the struggle that Jude goes though and feel more comfortable about themselves; to feel like it doesn’t matter whether you are gay or straight or bisexual or transgender or whatever you are, that you are happy with who you are, and that you are accepting of yourself. My hope is that people watch the scene and they are happy to see something on television that represents them. They can see themselves on television and say, “I’m just like Jude, I go through these struggles, I’m so curious about my sexuality, I’ve been through the foster system.” And they’re happy they can see that in front of so many people and feel as though it’s okay, and it’s not a bad thing.
There have been a lot of positive reactions from fans about the kiss. But how do you deal with the negative people out there?
I kind of just ignore it. If people have their own personal opinions about different things, that’s fine. Religion is one of those things that’s a very tough topic. A lot of people have their religious beliefs and they think that the Bible or whatever they believe in is the right thing to follow. I think that if people want to believe that that’s OK, I just think that they shouldn’t try to make those who feel differently change their minds or feel bad about themselves.
What are you excited about most in regards to Jonnor?
The impact and the difference that they make. I think that’s so exciting. This is the youngest same-sex kiss on national television. I’m very honored to be a part of that and be someone that can help all these kids going through these struggles and hard times and make them feel better about themselves.

What is straight?  A line can be straight, or a street, but the human heart, oh, no, it's curved like a road through mountains.”  -- Tennessee Williams, “A Streetcar Named Desire”

The important thing is not the object of love, but the emotion itself.” -- Gore Vidal

It always seemed to me a bit pointless to disapprove of homosexuality. It’s like disapproving of rain.” -- Francis Maude
