“5 years ago, I was disowned via letter when I came out to my father,” writes Redditor RegBarc. The letter in question arrived a week after RegBarc gave his dad the news over the phone.
It is heart wrenching that’s for sure, I’m also glad that Reg could tell his father via Reddit and other blogs like Gawker, “Fuck You” as he should fuck off. I don’t know how any parent could ever disown their child and call themselves a Christian and then in the same breathe preach its gospel. People will interpret the bible which way they like to justify their actions. I do love the ending with a dad with an adopted son who came out to him at age 15 had a complete difference of opinion and gave some amazing advice.
Reg Barc stand up straight and put that chin up high, you should be proud of yourself to come out and be who you want to be, even if your father doesn’t accept it. Just as long as you do that’s all that matters in the end.
