I was having a Skype conversation with one of my nieces yesterday. As a preface, let’s say she’s very young. Like seven young.

She started by making smalltalk, “Do you have a girlfriend?”

“No.” I responded. “Do you have a girlfriend?”

She laughed. “I’m too young.”

“Too young for what?” I asked.

She responded candidly, “I’m too young to be gay.”

Ah, the things kids will say. Afterwards she hid in embarrassment.
