Is there anything in the world better than a very wise and supportive and loving grandparent? Answer: maybe pizza, but probably not. As proof of this, I offer up an extremely moving letter that was posted on FUCKH8's Facebook page, in which a nameless grandfather berates his daughter for kicking her gay son out of the house.
Correctly asserting that that "the real 'abomination" is his daughter's terrible prejudice, the Grandpa Of The Year schools his daughter on a few facts: being gay not unnatural, whereas abandoning a child is unnatural (unless you are a panda); being gay is not a choice or the result of how you were raised; choosing to cling to your horrible and irrational hatred instead of being tolerant and supportive of your child makes you a heartless person.
Here's the full text of the letter, which FUCKH8 says was mailed to them:
I'm so disappointed in you as a daughter. 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 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 choose it any more than he [chose] 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 gay[s] put it) grandson to raise, and I don't have time for [a] heartless B-word of a daughter.
I[f] you find your heart, give us a call.
You tell her, sweet, sweet grandpa! It's really inspiring and heartwarming to see someone so supportive of his family and so sensible in the face of ignorance.
