When Family Don’t Like You ‘Cause You’re Gay

A gay guy who’s out with his family recently wrote my favorite advice maiden, Amy Dickinson, complaining his once open minded sisters have been brainwashed by the homophobic biggots
they married, and when politics and religion now come up, especially Obama’s pro-gay stance, all hell breaks loose. Gay Guy asked Amy how he can get his siblings to come around to his way of thinking.

Amy advised him to “do what makes you feel best about yourself and what makes you feel like the person and brother you want to be.”

Kinda vague and even contradictory, don’t ya think?

If I were Amy I would have given the guy one of two options:

Do not talk religion or politics with family when you know you’re talking to a brick wall. It’s fruitless.

OR, better yet:

Just tell them to go fuck themselves.

Of course with a benevolent smile on your face.

What do you think?
