FCKH8.com, a website that sells t-shirts advocating for gay rights, received this letter from a gay teenager named Chad. In the letter, Chad's grandfather disowns Chad's mother for rejecting her son and kicking him out of the house.
"Dear Christine: I’m disappointed in you as a daughter," Chad's unnamed grandfather writes. "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 letter-writer goes on to "disown" Christine for "being hurtful, narrow-minded and backward."
FCKH8.com posted the note to its Facebook page, writing that Chad would receive a free "Some Dudes Marry Dudes Get Over It" t-shirt.
"We were blown away by how this guy stands by his grandson and stands up against his own homophobic daughter. This is real l♥ve!" they wrote.
Here's the rest of the letter:
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
