Buttigieg approached by nine year old for advice on coming out to the world

Pete Buttigieg, who was addressing a rally in Denver, Colorado, was approached by a nine year old boy who asked the former South Bend, Indiana mayor for advice on how to be ’strong’. The nine year old also asked the Democratic presidential candidate for advice on telling the world that he is gay.

All I have to say is how could someone possibly know their sexuality and things like that as a child? I don’t think the kid should be discouraged from being whatever he is but being pushed into a category at a young age just seems wrong. Sexuality shouldn’t be a concern for children.

This was so obviously staged by Buttigieg. These people will say anything and use anyone in their pursuit of power.

Don't do this to a child. No one can say so at 9 years old.

The only intelligent response to a child like this is, you are child, you don't need or want to grow up any faster than it is natural to. Don't let your parents, your teachers, or your friends try to force you to do anything other than being a kid, enjoying being young, playing games, and learning new ideas with other kids. Sex and sex related things are not important for you now and won't be for a good while. Don't waste your energy on those that try to manipulate you.

9 year olds aren't gay or straight. They aren't at the age where they understand sexuality. Totally unrelated, why does it seem most pedophiles are gay?

No, Mayor Pete. Little nine year old Johnny is already out, and his BFF already knows. I as parent, if my son at the age of nine years old came out as gay, the alarms and red flags in my head would go crazy, and I would be taking a lot of swift action. Step 1. In private, give him a big hug, and thank him for his honesty, then never say another word about it unless he brings it up. Step 2. After Johnny is in bed, have a good cry. Get it out so I can think straight the next day. Step 3. Talk to his teachers in confidence and ask if all or a significant number of Johnny's friends are claiming to be gay and if they are disappearing during recess. Ask if he is being bullied, and the nature of said bullying. Also, demand to know what is being taught with regards to sex and relationships. If this is coming from life at school, I would want to know immediately. Step 4. That BFF, I better know that family. If I don't know and trust that family, he is never going to be unsupervised with that family or his BFF ever again, and starting next school year they will not be in the same classes together (on the DL of course, I'm not going to make a big deal out of it). Step 5. No, little Johnny will never be left unsupervised with male relatives, or mentors or family friends of the male persuasion until I can no longer control him with gentle persuasion. Step 6. Limit access to social media whenever possible. Childhood romance is not normal and is not safe. I can understand a crush if you have a precocious child, but a nine year old boy fully claiming to be gay before puberty? Yeah, it's possible this may be spontaneous, but there is a another worrysome possibility that we are looking at either sexual assault or social pressure. Kids need to be protected from those sort of things, and I want to make sure I undertand what's going on. I can't fix a destiny, but if it is within my power to understand my son and prevent further damage, I most certainly will do so.

It's 2020. No one gives a shit about your sexual orientation. You're not brave for coming out, and not a coward if you don't parade it around. No one gives a shit.

Why does "the world" need to know? I still don't make announcements unless it's relevant. It rarely is.

9 years is a little early to be thinking about sex. What's in the water these days? Aside from birth control pills and fertilizers...
