Made me cry, too. And I'm jaded and hate everybody.
 
2013-03-15 05:15:34 PM
Wow.

/trying not to cry, because I'm at work
 
2013-03-15 05:16:38 PM

Ditto everyone else.

Actual. Tears.
 
2013-03-15 05:33:48 PM
Awesome story.
 
2013-03-15 05:36:25 PM
So did the brat go buy orange juice or not?
 
2013-03-15 05:36:42 PM
I'd like to buy that Dad a drink.
 
2013-03-15 05:37:42 PM
It's a nice little father-son story - but I really don't get a lot of warm fuzzies out of these stories any more - they are starting to feel mundane.
And that, when you think about it, is a very, very good sign.

Jesus Christ man, there's just some things you don't talk about in public.
 
2013-03-15 05:38:54 PM
all my parents do is tell me how disappointed they are in me

:'(

/ really

Dad didn't vote Republican apparently.

I am pleased to be able to say that my sexual orientation has no bearing upon my parents' disappointment in me.
 
2013-03-15 05:40:19 PM
"I've loved you forever, and I knew. Pick up some OJ and bread, will you?"

Brilliant. Go Dad.
 
2013-03-15 05:40:26 PM
I'll feel a lot better when this is the normal reaction parents have to this sort of thing, and it doesn't become news.
 
2013-03-15 05:40:35 PM
I farking hate that feeling when you're tearing up and then someone makes some super heartfelt joke so then you're laughing while you're crying and you're just a farking emotional wreck.

"We are out [of OJ and bread], like you now."
 
2013-03-15 05:40:55 PM
Ase a father of 3 I say he's won this years "Father of the Year" I can only hope to be so cool.
 
2013-03-15 05:41:15 PM
Hmmm...this is too obvious. I'm calling fake.
 
2013-03-15 05:41:16 PM
Kind of sad this is such a big deal. This is how parents are supposed to react.

/now go buy me some damn OJ

My allergies are acting up again.

SIX???  What's there to know about a six-year-old's sexual orientation?  When I was six I was. . . well. . . six!  I was years away from my cooties phase, let alone being attracted to anyone.
 
2013-03-15 05:42:25 PM
well if my dad was eavesdropping on my phone calls, I'd want him to admit it to me in person instead of cowardly leaving me a note.

/ good for him on the "being accepting" thing though.
// sad that being a reasonable person makes the news
 
2013-03-15 05:43:01 PM
Love it. You go, dad.
 
2013-03-15 05:43:10 PM
Fake in 3, 2, 1...
 
2013-03-15 05:43:15 PM
Uh, Dad?  Mike isn't gay

Bread and OJ are high in folic acid and magnesium.

They could tell by the shoes he was wearing.

Well, for what it's worth, I'm not. So somewhere on this ball of blue, someone thinks you are awesome.... and you will never know exactly who.

/creepy isn't it :)
 
2013-03-15 05:45:16 PM
I hope that isn't fake because, awwwwww.

Watch some old reruns of Who's the Boss and then get back to us
 
2013-03-15 05:45:31 PM
Same thing happened to my friend but in person.  He told his mom and she said 'Ok, now pass the salad'.
 
2013-03-15 05:45:32 PM
Thanks, Dad, for making up your mind about my sexuality years before I even started to entertain the issue for myself.

Also for listening in on a private conversation between me and my friend.

God, you're THE WORST
 
2013-03-15 05:45:35 PM
That's a good dad. It's an uplifting little anecdote, the kind that renews your hope in humanity.

This is a good example of the unconditional love that the unholy GOP and evangelical alliance stands against. They literally stand in opposition to love. For people who claim to follow the teachings of Jesus I find this terribly ironic tragic idiotic.

When I was taking care of kids, I had one not much older who enjoyed hanging out with the girls much more than with boys, enjoyed playing hairdressing games, liked to try on jewelry and girls' hats and such, and who refused to play competitive games. He liked watching "girly" cartoons and shows. Visiting counselors would say they could easily see feather boas in his future. At some point, it becomes pretty evident. Not always, mind you, but it's fairly obvious.

What the hell, dad??? I said come out with you, not come out to you!!!

When my sister was in grade 1, there was one boy who spent every recess and break styling the girls' hair, brushing and braiding and putting in ponytails. He wanted everything to be made beautiful and arranged nicely. If your 6 year old boy wants to be a hairstylist, collect unicorns, and is horrified by ripped clothes, dirt, and people shouting, that could be an indicator.
