I'm a single mother raising a son. My son is 17 years old and is planning a small week-long vacation to Las Vegas. He is bringing just his close gay male friends from high school on the trip. My son is also gay.
I trust him to be responsible and won't let things get wild during the vacation. It sounds like they will just sightsee the different themed hotels, take pictures of tourist attractions, and enjoy shows like magic and concerts. It is an opportunity for him to demonstrate a high level of responsibily without unwarranted imposition. Also, I'm just a call away if he needs any support, guidance, or advice.
Recently, the parents of one his invitees asked me to tell my son to uninvite their son. They don't want their son going on a trip with just gay people even if the gay people are the same age range and they are all the same gender. Their son is 15 years old. All the other people on the trip are 16 and 17 years old.
They are secretly working on making their son straight. They said the media is already making homosexuality look like a moral life choice. They don't want his gay friends convincing him more. They have this crazy idea their son will have sex with his friends, enjoy it, and may end up falling in love & marrying one of his gay school friends. They asked me to keep this secret because if their son found out he would most likely double down on his homosexual attractions to spite them. Once that happens they lose any chance of making their son straight. I don't want to meddle in how other parents raise their kids. Therefore, I promised I would keep the reason a secret.
Now, I'm having trouble finding a way to tell my son to uninvite this one friend without lying.
