After his daughter kicked out his grandson for telling her he was gay, a concerned grandfather let her know — in no uncertain terms  — that there was only one real “shame in the family.”

Dear Christine,

I’m disappointed in you as a father. 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 anymore 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 heartless B-word of a daughter.

I[f] you find your heart, give us a call.


Ooooh, someone got in trooooouublllllleeee. For being a homophobic biiiigggoooot. Meanwhile, how awesome is this grampa? Hopefully he and his fabulous (as the gays put it) Chad will get along just fine and maybe Christine can get her shit together and realize that blood is thicker than whatever Haterade she’s been sipping on.
