Dear Abby: Son upset that dad's started dating men
Philly.com ^ | May 19, 2009 | Jeanne Phillips and some unfortunate guy

Posted on 05/19/2009 12:58:22 PM PDT by South Hawthorne

DEAR ABBY: My father is 83. My mother has been dead for more than 30 years. Since then, Dad has been involved with many women.

But, since he turned 70, he has become involved with men, which he says he finds very rewarding and much less complicated.

Dad and I always had an open and honest relationship. We have a lot of homosexual family members and friends.

At the same time, I'm shocked that the fact that he is gay has been so difficult for me to accept.

Have you any suggestions on how I might better deal with this?

- Caring Son in Miami

DEAR CARING SON: Your father appears to be bisexual, which means he is attracted to both men and women.

Whereas he may not have wanted to admit to himself or to you years ago that he had feelings for people of the same sex, it is no longer shocking to be open about it. Times have changed. Today a person's sexual orientation is no longer considered something to be kept hidden.

One constructive way to "deal with it" would be to realize how fortunate you are to have the kind of relationship you have always had with your dad. Be supportive, don't judge and love him for the parent he has always been.

An 83 year old father is getting gay with other old men and he's telling his son about it.

I think I'm going to be sick.

I'm going to make all of you sick too.

Dear Caring Son

Did you ever wonder what really happened to that little hamster you had as a boy?

Isn’t it disgusting how she tows the liberal line and says this is normal behavior and the son should just accept it?

“....realize how fortunate you are to have the kind of relationship you have always had with your dad. Be supportive, don’t judge and love him for the parent he has always been.....”

Translated means:

“If you do not accept him you’re a BIGOT and unfit to be his son...BTW, if you’re a Christian you are EVIL....change your ways”!

Dear Abby, Dear Abby ...
My feet are too long
My hair’s falling out and my rights are all wrong
My friends they all tell me that I’ve no friends at all
Won’t you write me a letter, Won’t you give me a call
Signed Bewildered

Bewildered, Bewildered...

Chorus:
You have no complaint
You are what your are and you ain’t what you ain’t
So listen up Buster, and listen up good
Stop wishing for bad luck and knocking on wood

My aunt decided to go all dikey after raising 5 kids to adulthood in a very catholic household.

WTF?

Actually, it's a sign that you haven't been completely lobotomized.

Be supportive, don't judge and love him for the parent he has always been.

Nothing says, "I care," like, "whatever."

He's got a point there.

I am so stealing that line and heavily recycling it.
