As we celebrate Father's Day, it's interesting to compare three new films in which the father-son relationship is challenged by the revelation that either the father or his son is gay. Nothing strikes at the heart of machismo quite like finding out that the apple of your eye, the fruit of your loins, ain't quite the manly man you had always imagined. The bottom line, however, is crystal clear. It's all about unconditional love.

However, me and Bob went on to have 5 more beautiful and healthy children aged 4 to 14 years old. He never spends times with me or our children and things started to hit rock bottom when he became emotionally abusive. He would be gone all day and come home smelling like booze. I begged him to go to counseling and after 3 attempts I just gave up. He would belittle me constantly and even in front of friends and family. I got to the point where I loved him, but I hated him at the same time. He would help clean and look after the children.

I often joke that sex work is like being a nurse, a small business owner and a therapist all in one. I can take a pulse, administer first aid and talk someone down from a drug trip. But I also know when to call an ambulance, give the number to Hassle Free, or send something to my accountant, rather than dealing with it myself. Knowing the limit of your abilities is key in any profession. Sex work is no different.
Over the past few months my wife, HuffPost blogger Amelia , has been asked numerous times what I think about our 7-year-old son identifying as gay. This is not something I thought I'd be writing so soon OK, honestly, I never thought I would be writing a blog on an internationally known news website. When my wife and I were expecting our first child, we discussed what we would do if he or she were born with a disability or with a foot growing out of his or her head. Dealing with a child with a disability would be a life-changing event and something that we had to think about a lot.
