From The Mouths
My niece, almost 4, about whom I've spoken before, had this conversation with my sister last weekend.
Alicia: When Uncle Joe comes, is he bringing his girlfriend?
Mama: No honey, remember I told you Uncle Joe is gay? He likes boys.
Alicia (brightly): Oh! Is he bringing his boyfriend then?
Mama: No sweetie. Uncle Joe doesn't have a boyfriend.
Alicia: Why not?
Mama: I don't know honey. You'll have to ask Uncle Joe.
Alicia (sadly): Is it...is it because he's fat?
