My daughters best friend is gay, our whole family loves him, we think of him as part of our family, he and I are great friends as well. I am his adopted mom, he calls me Mumsykins. My husband is Daddyman.
I have a daughter 21, a son 17, and this adopted son who is 20.
One evening my two sons took me out to dinner at a very nice place in a big city here in Kansas. We had a wonderful time, joking having fun and just enjoying each other’s company. After dinner we decided to go to Wal-Mart of all places, in the middle of the night. For some drawing paper and just for the fun of it. Something to do before the long drive home.
T is a bit fem, and has a certain walk about him, my son B was dressed in one of T’s very long fur coats for fun, just being silly and it was chilly out. They both had been being silly the whole time we were there, having fun watching me blush from embarrassment of their antics. So, they were walking a ways behind me as we made our way to the check out line, when two drunken men commented on both T and my son.
Look at those two Fa@$…they kept talking and did not realize that the boys were with me…I lost it, I said those are my sons and one is gay the other is not and for that matter its none of you business what they are.
The two drunks kept making rude comments and I hate to say I made a few of my own about their possible lack of a family tree by way of incest. I was so angry that they felt they could just comment that way.
This is the first time I have truly felt rage at someone I did not personally know. I was so tempted to hit at least one of them, the fear of going to jail and embarrassing my boys is the only thing that stopped me.
I can not imagine how T must feel dealing with these kind of people everyday. He is such a wonderful, smart, beautiful person. I wish everyone could see him with our families eyes.
