This is such a heartwarming story that involves the hesitation of a son and the love of a dad for his anxious son who wants to confess that he is gay. Though we are living in 2017 and despite the Supreme Court’s landmark’s decision to make gay marriage legal in all states in 2015, children find it difficult to reveal their sexual preference to their parents. This is because people have not accepted the decision of Supreme Court nationally. But this dad has handled his son in the most brilliant manner. When he overheard the conversation of his son with a friend named Mike, he decided to make the situation easy for his son.
Thus, he left a beautiful note where he showed his love and funny side too to make him feel like it’s not a big deal.
The note reads:
I overheard your phone conversation with Mike last night about your plans to come out to me. The only thing I need you to plan is to bring home OJ and bread after class. We are out, like you now.
I’ve known you were gay since you were six. I’ve loved you since you were born.
P.S. Your mom and I think that you and Mike make a cute couple.
The title of the original post says it all: “Every parent should be so cool; the world would be a better place.”
Truer words have never been spoken.
The note even included a subtle dad joke: “The only thing I need you to plan is to bring home OJ and bread after class. We are out, like you now.”
A class act all around.
