A scathing letter in which a grandfather condemns his daughter’s decision to disown her gay son has been shared thousands of times online.
It was initially posted on the Facebook page of gay-friendly apparel brand FCKH8 – although it remains unverified.
FCKH8 says the letter is real, Gawker reports, and has contacted the family about the possibility of speaking speak publicly about their experience.
Read the astonishing letter below:
I’m disappointed in you as a daughter. 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 chase it any more than he being left-handed.
You however, have made a choice of being hurtful, narrow-minded and backward. So, while we are 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 gays put it) grandson to raise, and I don’t have time for heart-less B-word of a daughter.
If you find your heart, give us a call
