Any good father wouldn't want their child to deny themselves their true feelings. Bigoted or not, a good father would want their child to be happy.
The fathers who have issues with their son's homosexuality or their playing with a girl's toy do so because they think of it as an affront to their own masculinity. These are the people who, in error, think of gender as some rigid construct. Bad dads feel like failures and feel less masculine if their son is gay. Inversely, you are actually a failure as a parent if your child feels like they can't seek happiness, and be who they truly are, because of you.

how can my son not be straight
after all I've said and done for him"

It's the same idiots who cry about the "emasculation of society" and have their own antiquated ideas of what being a man is. Their own insecurities are part of the problem. The problem isn't the clouding binary, it's misogyny and bigotry. The binary is bull ****. You rarely hear mothers complain about their daughters being "tomboys." Why? Why isn't a young girl adopting historically masculine qualities met with such fervor? Why don't fathers see that as a sign of their failure? Because being "manly" is commendable and being womanly is an insult to their masculinity.
Hopefully, evolution will leave these people behind.
I have a 3-year old boy and a 1-year old girl. They play with each other's toys all the time. Do I care? Of course not. Why don't I care? Because I'm a good dad.
The only way I will feel like a failure is if my child feels like they are being kept from true happiness because of me.
Bravo bro, BRAVO.
I'm assuming Meth had enough of Luckys bigotry and locked him out....sad, wish he could have read this post.
