To My Gay Son

Posted on Tue, Jun 28, 2011 at 4:11 PM

Ever since I caught you watching your Twilight DVD, I knew you were gay. I just want you to know that I'm ok with it. You don't have to hide it and over-compensate by acting like a tough white supremacist. I know you were badly hurt when the exchange student you fancied rejected you and went back home for the summer, but eventually you'll meet Mr. Right... so please leave Mr. Right-Wing and stop your act.

It's ok to be gay. Your dad and I love you just the same and we just want you to be happy. It's time for you to remove your mask and embrace your homosexuality. —Ihre Mutter
