In the Middlesex documentary, Noah was very confident in what he believed and very outgoing. He seemed like a normal kid trying to live a normal life but in a different perspective. When the cameras were directed towards him and he was asked questions such as,” Are the children unkind to you?” Noah’s response signaled that children are aware of his feminine tendencies which looked like it made him uncomfortable, but at home Noah seemed comfortable to be himself around his family. From observing the video of Noah and his parents, it doesn’t seem that Noah obtained his feminine tendencies from something in his environment such as abuse and neglect. His family is very supportive of his choices and who he is. His dad mentioned that Noah has been…show more content…
For example, a male wanting to dress and act like a female but at the same time having a sexual relationship with a male. It is true that individuals do become homosexual or anything along those lines due to hate, anger, and violence but also because of natural causes like something happening in the womb during development or the child having a sibling that is the opposite sex than them and they pick up their type of behavior whether it is a boy or a girl. On the other hand, homosexuals are often made fun of by the heterosexuals.

Parents have to be very supportive of their child especially when society is not at all supportive. Parents have to live everyday worrying that no one will harm their child because of who they chose to become. Last but not least, parents have to face the ridicule from society and family members also when their child is homosexual. It is not something easy to live
