    So, some of you may know about the guy who posted a response letter from his dad, on Reddit, after coming out to his parents. I believe it was posted on the RJ forums here. It's still pretty sad to think about that letter and that parents are still very cruel to their children about being gay.


    Anyway, I came across this article from The Huffington Post who, in response to the hateful letter, wrote a letter of his own if his son was gay and came out to him. It's pretty touching, and kinda funny at times. I thought it would be a good idea to share icon_biggrin.gif

    What an amazing father, and what a fortunate child.

    It reminds me of my own experience when I came out to my Dad. When I told him he said, "I know. I've wondered how long it was going to take you to figure it out." It didn't matter, and it didn't change our relationship.
