I also agree with Mello38 and Tonii2010. Being a child can be hard enough when you reach a certain age. Who wants to be pushed or not listening too when it's time to talk about sexuality, if you are confused about yourself. I was also somewhat of a tomboy. I didn't want to be a girli girl because I didn't think it was much fun. It looked like the guys always had more fun and interesting things to do, so I wanted to be one of them. Still to this day I am a little tomboy, but I am NOT gay. I'm glad my parents were understanding and did not push me in either direction. They listened to me and allowed me to act like a boy. When I got in my teenage years I still didn't like boys (relationship wise). Then as a grown woman in my early 20's, I still didn't look at men like other women did. It took me until I was over 25 to get interested in men. And at NO time did I like women because I was not then and I still am NOT now, gay. I just wanted to be me. I did not want or need to be told I was gay or shipped off to a transgender type camp or group. I have nothing against any type of gay/transgendered person. But I do not agree with this type of transgendered camp for small children.

I understand completely where Mello is coming from. When I was younger I was a tom boy and I wanted to be a boy and tried my best to do so. I was even labeled as gay by my peers and teachers. It was not that I was gay because at that time I didnt even know what gay was. I just knew then that was how I wanted to be. I got older and things changed. I am probably the girlish girl that you could ever find. Just because a child dresses and acts a certain way does not mean that that is how they are. With situations and thing like this we have to be careful because if a child is that way then we do not want them to hide what they really are and if a child is not that way then we do not want to confuse them.

I'm in college and college definitely doesn't mean you're out of touch with idiots. They are still crawling all over campus, ready to attack at any minute!

The transgender camp story is touching - such a change from the whispered stories I heard growing up.
