Scottish Mom Tells Court She Abused Her Son for Being Gay

A woman in Scotland has admitted in court that she sent homophobic text messages and shouted abuse at her own child because he is gay. 42-year-old Celia Duncan, from Aberdeen, had previously thrown her 16-year-old son Stuart O’Neill out of the family home. She will be sentenced next year. Duncan shouted abuse at her son when she saw him walking with his boyfriend and sent the texts when he would not speak to her. Stuart, who lives with his boyfriend, told the Daily Record “I feel really hurt by what my mum has done.” [Pink News UK]
