In a note reprinted by the anti-homophobia group FCKH8.com, a father saves his nervous son the trouble of coming out—by casually leaving him a note explaining how he knows the score already:
I overheard your phone conversation with Mike last night about your plans to come out to me. The only thing I need you to plan is bring home OJ and bread after class.
We are out, like you now.
I’ve known you were gay since you were six—I’ve loved you since you were born
PS: Your mother and I think you and Mike make a cute couple
That dad better get the nicest Father’s Day present in all of time and space.
