Mum kicks her son out for being gay. Awesome grandpa responds with this letter.

Have you ever been in the awkward situation of deeply disagreeing with someone else’s parenting style? Have you forced down a sip of coffee, clenched your jaw and bitten your tongue but ultimately stayed silent? Yep. Standard response.

But what if that fellow parent happened to be your own child, and the mother of your grandchild. That’s a whole different kettle of stinky family fish. You can’t NOT say something.

It’s also exactly what happened to this grandfather, when he witnessed his own daughter’s cruel reaction to her son coming out as gay.

And in response? He wrote her this letter.  The impassioned note begins, “Dear Christine” and goes on to lists the atrocious ways in which his daughter alienated her teenaged son, before ending with the completely kick-arse line: “I now have a fabulous (as the gay put it) grandson to raise.”

It’s official: we want to adopt this incredible grandfather as our own.

Nailed it.
