Homophobic Daughter Letter: Grandpa Slams Daughter For Disowning Her Gay Son, 'I'm Disappointed In You As A Daughter' [FULL LETTER] : Entertainment : Latin Times


Homophobic Daughter Letter: Grandpa Slams Daughter For Disowning Her Gay Son, 'I'm Disappointed In You As A Daughter


Dear Christine,

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 say 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 are 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 gays 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. - Dad.

Re: Homophobic Daughter Letter: Grandpa Slams Daughter For Disowning Her Gay Son

what would your follow up be

he left the door open for her to wise up but i wouldnt leave it at that
id offer her professional help to deal with her bigotry and hatred and to do family therapy with her
id also give he a time limit to get her act together before i pressed charges against her and fought for custody of my grandchild.

This is surprising. It is not often that I see older folks taking a vocal stance on equal rights for gays. I'm wondering if this will be a reality check for his daughter, or if she will allow her irrational hatred to permanently destroy her relationship with her kid. Hopefully there's a followup story. This reminds me of a commercial Expedia aired. This is a step towards the end for public approval of the anti-SSM stance. "You have to make a decision. Are you gonna have a daughter that you're going to maintain a wonderful relationship for the rest of your life, or are you going to lose that child."

Exactly. Expedia, with the help of their PR team, came to the conclusion that it would be good to endorse SSM. This goes to show most of society has accepted equal rights for gays, and rejected the opposition.

WOW DUDE!!!!

thats a ****ing awesome video!!!!!!!

and those are awesome parents that get reality!
that was actually very touching hearing him talk about his daughters spark


I have a daughter and she is 16, as far as i knw she is straight and i seriously doubt shed have trouble telling me otherwise since she knows how i feel about it. But the thing i dont get. And this is not a knock on the dad in the video because like he said her HAPPINESS is what clearly took over for him but his dreams is something i cant relate to. Many fathers have sadi the same thing as him and NOT changed, they were crushed their dreams were crushed.

well, i dont get that?

I have dreams about my daughter, i dream stays smart and educated, she is successful at things she likes and she has a happy life. Ive never dreamed about her husband and even if i did how could i possible be so selfish to judge HER lif based on MY dreams?

i just dont get that part, how ignorant and selfish does one have to be?

anyway, awesome video . . truly

i wish i could do more than like your post cause the video deserves it!

I understand the expectation of his daughter having a husband because he is older and that's the way things were. (Of course there's some exceptions.) I was blown away when I saw this commercial. I actually thought it was a movie trailer at first.

Yes, and these sorts of commercials along with public opinion, and instances like the OP will cause people with apprehensions to love their children no matter how they were born.

That's what gets me. I can empathize with most ideals, but this is one of the few I can't. Especially when that irrational hatred bleeds into someone's relationship with their family. You would think, at the very least, family would be an exception.

Re: Homophobic Daughter Letter: Grandpa Slams Daughter For Disowning Her Gay Son

When they speak of homosexuality being unnatural, how unnatural is it for a mother to do something so heinous to their kid? This is what i find duplicitous about comments on this forum like "having a hard time coping" if their kid was gay, and elsewhere pretending to be so accepting. Yeah, what victims these parents are :roll:

If you remove homophobia and selfish obsessions to have (biological) grandkids, it really should be way down the list of concerns. Unwanted pregnancy and health, school, and legal troubles come to mind as actual problems, yet these same parents will often tolerate unlimited ****ups by their kids in those areas.

Need more information to make a real decision.

How old was the "kid" that she kicked out? Obviously it would be wrong to kick a minor out of the house and onto the street.

Would she be considered such a terrible person if she had kicked the son out for other reasons? How about depression? Paranoia? Schizophrenia? I guess since there are treatments for those mental disorders, she would be heartless, so yeah, instead of kicking him out, she should of sought treatment for his sickness/disorder.

Why is disapproval of homosexuality "homophobic"? A phobia is a fear, often an unreasonable one. Just because someone disapproves of homosexuality or homosexual marriage does not in anyway indicate they are acting out of fear.

Why is it ok to call homosexuals "homo" when using the term homophobia but not any other time? Homophobia, the fear of a homo. I guess it could be a fear of humans also, since humans are homo-sapiens. I guess it could be the fear of homo neanderthalensis, but that would be truly unreasonable as they have been extinct for a longtime now. No, homo in general usage is normally the shortening of the term homosexual is probably the most neutral term to use. Gay didn't have any real association prior to it being co-opted and abused.
