I have no idea what this comment is about, but I was a professional HIV educator for years. I got paid to talk to people about safer sex and risk evaluation. That wasn’t the purpose of my story above.

I had many talks with Brent about sex over the years, some of which were informed by my experience as an educator. I have plenty of writing available on the Internet that goes into great detail about safer sex practices.

This story had a complete different point. I didn’t write it to provide education about STIs, HIV, and pregnancy. I wrote it to talk about relationships between parents and children, and particularly LGBT parents who may worry, consciously or otherwise, about the wisdom of being frank with their children.
