Forums - General Discussion - ‘You’ve made your choice’: Man shares dad’s brutal letter disowning him for being gay

"In your world, people choose what sex to be attracted to. In your world, it is natural for a father to block all connections with his son because of a supposed decision that won't harm anyone at all. In your world, any father would be ashamed if its offspring was gay."

No people are brought up to be attracted to the opposite sex, it's the normal way of life like being brought up to not cause crime. Of course a father would cut off their son, a son is a fathers pride and joy, you want them to grow up to have a normal life, get married and have kids. Imagine the fathers embarrassment now if his friends find out his son was gay.

No parent wants their offspring to turn out gay.


Are you seriously comparing homosexuality to crime?! You're a goddamned despicable human being. Crime is an act that involves the deprivation or hurtful acts towards others. Homosexuality is an act between two CONSENTING adults. You might not like it, but some do, and they're not hurting you in any way, so live with it.

Oh my god! The father's pride has been tarnished in front of his friends! Quick, we must justify it by cutting off all communication with his flesh and blood and cause years of psychological distress, in order to save the father's pride! Are you really using this an an excuse to justify disownment? Answer me honestly, now...

In a way, I hope you have a son that turns out to be gay. Of couse, I would feel a lot of sympathy towards a kid with such a closed-minded parent, but sometimes the only way to get these ignorants to open their mind is to have something like this happen to them.

And a single 3 letter word in that letter is to blame for all that hate and predjudice, the word being...

'GOD'

GOD and the bible is surely responsible for more hate, prejudice, intollerence and evil than anything else EVER in the history of mankind!

More people have died in the name of atheism than by the name of God. Numbers hardly lie.

The nazis and commies didn't kill in the name of atheism. They killed in the name of Germany (Their ideological vision of it) and in the name of communism.

Grow up and stop spreading misinformation.


Half truth. The Nazis HATED Communists. In fact, they were put into camps along with Jews, Gypsies, Homosexuals, Mentally handicapped, etc. Nazism follows a couple of small traits to communism, but it is far from communism. In fact, Hitler declared both Capitalism and Communism to be too open to corruption by the Jews, so he rejected both.

I wouldn't disown my kid if he was gay, but I certaintly wouldn't be proud of his lifestyle (choice).

People don't choose their sexuality.

This is still an arguable point. Biologically, the male is genetically made to be attracted to the female. So either its a choice, sexual confusion, or its an anomaly, given that the gay population is a vast, vast numerical minority.

Dont take anomaly as a insult, I meant it as a numerical comparison.  


Genetically, we're made to not contain physical defects

Genetically, we're made to have two distinct genders

So what happened? Nature happened, of course. Genetic anomalies are still quite common, especially in a culture of several billion (and more, considering the many thousands being born each day). Anomalies are not just associated with what you see on a person, physically.

Homosexuality became sinful in earlier times because of the widespread fear that it would one day become the majority of choice over heterosexuality. In my belief, that will never be the case. You're either programmed to like the same gender or you're not. If you don't like the same gender in that way, fine. Some do, however..

Words like this should be prohibited. I just spent five precious minutes struggling to pronounce this word and failed horribly. You like making people feel bad or something?

Sorry!  that wasn't my intention at all, I promise!

Keep an open mind. He stood up for his beliefs.He should be commended.

Your kind scares me.  "Oh, intolerance and ignorance is okay as long as he's doing it for the right reasons!"  

This is why I have an agenda against religion.

Gay sex will much more likely get you infested with AIDS than heterosexual sex. Spin that however you want, im not arguing about this anymore


You're promoting a logical fallacy there. The likelihood increases NOT by the sexuality, but by the sexual ACT that is chosen. Let me demonstrate:

Let's say that, all of a sudden, hetero men everywhere started to enjoy giving it to their women up the butt. That's still heterosexuality, right? One man and one woman. Then all of a sudden, the act of anal sex through these heterosexual acts pushes AIDS transmissions through heterosexual couples through the roof. Would that then give me the right to say that heterosexuality promotes AIDS? Of course not!

Of course, it's anal sex that increases the chance of AIDS transmission, NOT homosexuality. I know plenty of homosexual couples who never take it that far, so ironically, they're SAFER towards AIDS transmission than heterosexual couples who engage in any type of penetration.
