Grandparents can be so awesome, right? Like they bake cookies, take you to the movies, make fun of your parents with you, and write epic takedown letters to bigoted moms who kick out their gay son.
This Grandpa was shocked when he heard that his daughter — his own flesh and blood — kicked out her son just because he identified as a gay man. Not only did he take in the son to live with him, he also wrote this epic letter:
Plain text, if needed:
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 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 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.
I’m not sure I can add anything to what Grandpa said, except that this dude is clearly Grandparent of the year.
