Not to be rude or something to your friend but if I where him I would keep it secret for now. When he is an Adult and he lives by himself he can come out of the closet but right now I would not do that.

Best advice. Not like a 13 year old boy needs to explore his sexuality.

That is so true when your 13 all you need to worry about is grades and how people think about you at school.

I disagree, at this stage one's sexual feeling are beginning to do all sorts of new things. While it might not be best to run round having sex with others, there is plenty of self discovery on personal feelings.

As Kasic said it really comes down to how their parents would react.

There is plenty of time to do it later. Right now you're 13, just entering puberty, and possibly the more important phases of schoolife that can make or break your future. You don't need to explore your sexuality, just think about it from time to time, and not stress so much over it.

I never said he should explore it. I was answering the question on whether he should tell his parents.

I'm not saying explore it necessarily in a physical sense as with somebody else, But as the person is entering into puberty at this point it is becoming a major part of who they are that will last the rest of their life.

That initially sounded like sarcasm, but you're right. I mean, at most you're half way through puberty. At most.

there are 2 sides to this phrase unfortunately: there is no need to explore the physical aspect immediately, but it's better that he starts with gaining knowledge on the matter immediately in order to better help when he needs to come to terms with himself.

in other words, "it's great to learn because knowledge is power."
