Is there some unofficial Internet contest to see who get the most elaborate fake letter past Prudence? And am I the last person to know this.

Also, we do not tolerate sexual activity in the house, regardless of sexual orientation, so there can't be a double standard with Robbie.

Good luck with that. We all know teenagers are more apt to listen to logic than their own biology when it comes down to it, so don't tell them about protection, or tell them when things are appropriate. Also, you wife probably hates you, since, well, no double standards, right?

I'm sure Robbie already knows about "no sex in the house" since you had the talk with him back when he was younger, and you thought he was straight.

Think on the upside.  There's no way his sexual partner will be getting pregnant.

Could it be that Rebekah knows that Robbie is gay, and Jason is his boyfriend and is helping her brother out by pretending to be interested in Jason?

Anyone who's ever had both a basement and teenagers should know that the most innocent walk down those steps could mean stumbling upon scenes of naked writhing.

The teenagers I have in my basement don't do any of that nonsense.  The chains and gags generally keep them quiet and restrained until I'm ready to go downstairs for playtime.

Oh yea, dad apparently forgot the number one rule of walking around the house when you have teenagers.  Make a lot of noise as you go so they can hear you coming.

This one struck a good balance. I would have gone over the top by having it develop into a 3-way.

I think so, few weeks ago I read in the local paper (that thing they sell that comes from a box that you put quarters in?) Newspaper thats it, anyhow one of the "Dear Prudence" was some mom who found "beads" after her son went off to college, she's horrified of the fact her son is gay blah blah.
I got a kick out of reading it, I honestly think some of it might be real, but reality is most of this crap has to be fake.

/on a funny note, mom was shiatting bricks at the fact her son was gay, she didn't even bother asking him - she just went off the handle about how she raised him blah blah, I guess he's a closet homo or something

The calls are coming from inside the house.

I remember eluding my stepfather who was old, slow, and noisy in a circular series of rooms so that he never saw nor heard me like a little ninja.  "huh...guess he's not here.  I guess I'll just yell at the clouds". Good times.
 
2014-01-05 12:33:33 PM
The story is gayer than the two boys. We'll only know if it's real if there's a follow up story from a real news source telling us who got stabbed when all was revealed.

Oh, and dad, if you want to deter your kids from having in the house, or anywhere else for that matter, have them watch you and your wife have sex. They will be in their 30s before that wears off.

This, AND Jason is banging the sister too.  Guaranteed.   Hell, he should just pop in to mom & dad's room with a hard-on and a smile and nail both of them.   Add some spice to their obviously passionless marriage.

is there any proof that any letter about a gay child that is published in a paper is anything but fake?

Is this a pitch for a reality TV show?  I really believe this is the common thought amongst "generation idiot".

I suspect even Prudence knows this and she's trolling everyone else by responding to the fakes.

And yeah, Rebekah (who the hell spells it that way?) knows and is covering for Tommie.  I mean, if this letter was real in the first place, that is.

Is it just getting to be a meme that these letter writers are fake? Seriously, you hang out on this site, you ought to know all the weird shiat that goes on everywhere. I wouldn't be even the slightest bit shocked at any of this happening for real. Seriously, "gay guy is shtupping a guy his sister knows and parents don't know what to do"? That's pretty mundane, all things considered.

Yes, if the sister knows what's really go on between her brother and her "boyfriend" and is just playing along with it, that's one thing.  If they're pulling the wool over her eyes, then you have a totally different issue to worry about.

The headline is inaccurate in that respect. TFA states that the daughter has a crush on the friend, but they are not in a relationship. The headline also makes it seem like it's the father's sister.

So the father's sister is having gay sex with a teenage boy who the daughter has a crush on?

This.

Seriously, what on Earth is even strange about this?

If it was: "my daughter has a crush on a guy in her class, but I've discovered he's infatuated with her older sister" it would be tame enough for "Dear Abby."

The only twists here are:

a.) dad walked in on them (it happens)
b.) the guy is gay (it happens)

I had that thought too. My troll-dar pinged after I read it. I got a feel of something really internalized while I was reading it and I wasn't sure if I was getting a false reading or not.

This. There are many sincerely confused individuals like the author or this letter.

Can nobody here read? It says the sister just has a crush on the guy. Female has crush on gay guy, who's fooling around with her brother. It's not all that weird or implausible.
