Paranoia will destroy ya

9 11 2007

This makes me sick. These men can do what they want, that’s fine, I guess. That is not my problem with it. My problem is that now that Jake is 7 going on 8, I let him go into the men’s restroom alone. I don’t really “let” him. He refuses to go into the women’s restroom. I suppose I don’t really blame him. But, believe me, it drives me absolutely crazy watching him go in. I stand at the door listening for any strange noises and glare at any man who walks in. If Jake is in there for more then 45 seconds, I am panicking.  

Some call it paranoia, I prefer to call it hyper-awareness.

So, now what am I going to do? Not let him use public restrooms?  Well, not the ones with stalls.  Only the ones that are just one room, one toilet.  Like at Starbucks.  

And I need to put him in a bubble.  Then I can relax.

What makes you sick about it? That it’s two men, or that they screw in bathrooms.

That they do it in bathrooms where potentially my son could see them. I feel equally as strongly toward a hetersexual couple having sex in a bathroom, which is likely as well, but that is not what the article is about.
