Coming out is never easy.
We live in a time where anything even slightly out of the ordinary is met with hard criticism. It’s difficult to express yourself when you’re surrounded by people with traditional mindsets. Anything that goes against the norm is pretty much unacceptable. However, it isn’t always the case as it depends on the exact circumstances.
Which is why we can’t generalize because people think differently. Just like this one particular dad who knew his son was dating a guy, but didn’t know how to let him know that it was okay. So, he reached out to Redditors and asked for advice.
Read what he had to say below:
Though in recent times, a considerable number of countries around the world have legalized same-sex marriages, it still remains a sensitive subject as its not fully accepted even within those countries. That is why when people discover their sexual orientations they keep it to themselves. Sometimes, a lot of kids don’t even tell their parents fearing they might disown them.
Anyway, after understanding this dad’s genuine concern, Redditors gave him some honest advice:
Way to go, Mom!
It isn’t easy to giving up a toxic lifestyle. Kudos to this awesome dad!
That will allow you to talk more openly.
As it turned out, the number of people who came to this dad’s rescue was more than expected!
In the end, with everyone’s help, this happened!
Not only did it work out perfectly between the dad and his son, the boyfriend also got a loving family and a place he could call home.
This is how happy Redditors were when the found out.
Is it just me or is someone cutting onions?
No, you are!
10/10 good parent.
Imagine having someone like this!
