Telling our parents something as personal as our sexual orientation is an incredibly complicated task for many. When Chad confessed to her mom that he was gay, he expected that she would at least understand him, but she didn’t. She kicked him out of their house.
Without anywhere to go, the boy went to the house of his grandfather and told him what happened. The grandpa’s response was simply epic:
I’m disappointed in you as a daughter. You’re correct that we have a “shame in the family”, but mistaken about what it is.
Kicking Chad out of your home simply because he told you he was gay is the real “abomination” here. A parent disowning her child is what goes “against nature”.
The only intelligent thing I heard you saying in all this was that “you didn’t raise your son to be gay”. Of course you didn’t. He was born this way and didn’t choose it any more than he being left-handed. You however, have made a choice of being hurtful, narrow-minded and backward. So, while we’re in the business of disowning our children, I think I’ll take this moment to say goodbye to you. I now have a fabulous (as the gay put it) grandson to raise, and I don’t have time for a heartless B-word of a daughter.
If you find your heart, give us a call.
