Dear Virginia, I am a single parent, with no partner on the scene, and I've had a very open relationship with my son, who is now 13. But I was taken aback when he recently confessed he thought he might be gay. I have no idea how to handle this, and I'm worried it might be something to do with the fact that we are so close. Do you have any advice on how best I should react to make him feel comfortable about the situation?
Yours sincerely, Martha

Philip Corbet was a world expert on dragonflies, which he studied first in England and later in tropical Africa, Canada and New Zealand. He was the author of books which have become entomological classics and are read throughout the English-speaking world. Few have done more to establish the present-day science of odonatology and the popularity of dragonflies as "birdwatcher's insects". To borrow the name of his favourite insect, in the dragonfly world Corbet was an Emperor.
