Grandpa Writes Harsh Letter to Daughter, Shames Her For Disowning His Gay Grandson

by at .  Updated at . Comments

An unnamed grandfather recently penned a letter to his daughter, criticizing her for the homophobia that apparently led her to disown his gay grandson.

The letter has since gone viral after FCKH8, the gay rights group that first obtained the note, shared it on Facebook and captioned it simply, "Go Grandpa!"

The group says they "were blown away by how this guy stands by his grandson and stands up against his own homophobic daughter. This is real love!"

The letter came in response to the "hurtful, narrow-minded and backwards" daughter, who had kicked her son out of the house after learning he was gay.

This isn't the first letter to make the online rounds after someone came out as gay, but is particularly moving coming from a grandpa raised in another era.

It certainly flies in the face of the stereotype that people from older generations are less likely to be tolerant and accepting of such family and friends.

He's not pleading with Christine to accept the boy, either. He's hurt by her actions, which he calls the real "abomination" and "shame" in the family.

While we're on the subject of disowning people, he adds, considering it done - at least until this mom finds her heart, in which case give us a call.

Some have, inevitably, questioned whether the letter is real. We'd welcome any insight you can provide on that, if you have any one way or the other.

But regardless, the message resonates. Don't you agree?

I really hope this letter is real. I find it most reassuring to think that I'm not alone in being so open minded for my generation. Gay and transgender people do not get to choose their orientation anymore than anyone else does. Why is accepting ones self only right when that "choice" is heterosexual?

Wow, such diction. Really? People are born with their sexual orientation, they don't get to choose. I doubt you stopped to think that some gay people might think your "choice" of partner is immoral too. What gives you the right to judge anyone?

I COMPLETELY DISAGREE! I WOULD NOT KICK MY CHILD OUT BUT EVERYONE IS ENTITLE TO THEIR VIEWS AND RELIGIOUS BELIEFS. MY IN-LAWS HAD A RULE ABOUT PREMARTIAL SEX AND THEY KICKED THEIR SON OUT. THEY HAD THAT RIGHT! I'VE SEEN FAMILIES BREAK UP OVER LOTS OF DUMB REASONS...SO WHY SHOULD THIS GET ANYMORE ATTENTION?

If the kid was under 18, im sorry. My opinion is for adult children. I would not stop loving my child. I hope the woman didn't lose love, but she does have the right to chose not to condone the act under her roof

What a wonderful man! I love that he has turned her own words against her to show how hurtful and wrong they are! Anyone who would turn against their own child because of their sexual preference is not human and knows nothing of love. I hope her Daddy's letter slaps some sense into her before it is too late.

A mother's love is suppose to be unconditional. She should look in the mirror and ask herself who made her judge.

I totally agree with this. I love how he was kind enough to censor his words.
However, I find it sad that in this day and age you will still find the people who try hard to stick relentlessly to their backward ideals. If arguing, cussing out and insulting other peoples opinions makes you feel better about your opinions, which you're probably trying to feel the most dominant as result with the mass amount of caps locks, than so be it. That just shows your true colors.
I for one, agree with this grandfather and I wish the grandson all the best. Battles are being fought over every day on equality. Some won and lost. This here, this letter, was definitely another victory.

these comments really make me sad. why does someone's sexual preference make them less of a person? why does someone's sexual preference make them a pervert, or an abomination? why is someone's sexual preference ANY OF YOUR BUSINESS? lastly, and most importantly, how does your child's sexual preference trump the love you have for that child? ...and you say that those of us who care about the person, not who the person loves, are the animals. seriously? ugh. you disgust me.
