How is this for deny ignorance...
Only because noone has ever asked, and it has never came up, I have never had the need to actually say this so now is my chance but first I would like
to say Hey Ford, and welcome.
My son, 18, manly man, graduated high school, right into college, makes good grades but likes to 'smoke'. Only one run-in with the law and he
learned. He is literally TOO GOOD to be true. Totally independant, his own apt, his own car. I borrow from him!
My kid is awesome. My kid is gay. And let me assure you of something, although I am a huge redneck from NC, Im not ignorant. And I thank God for
As I am grown and I have done my job raising him, I may now sleep with whomever I chose. I happen to be married but if not.. hehe. Another topic...
Just as I am grown and whom I sleep with is none of his business, he too is grown and whom he sleeps with is none of my business.
Do I wish he wasnt gay? No. Do I cry sometimes when I accept I will never hold a grandchild... of course. THIS is the only thing that hurts about it.
And to a mama, it cuts deep when you have an only child.
But let me assure all of you of one thing (especially any gay kids out there that might wonder how their mama's feel now that 'they know'.
We, as Mama's, always knew. You are our babies. It isnt a choice. Its DNA'ed. NOONE would 'chose' to be gay... thats obsurd. My son would lie on a
table and give blood to any of you to save your life. (Clean blood, very ontop on dr visits and maintains a steady relationship). In Florida, gays are
all about safety. Us hetros are the tainted ones. He would feed you before himself and go hungry.
He will be teaching your children in school in less than a year. Yes, my gay son will be responsible for educating your child. If that scares you...
please seek a higher awareness to your surroundings. Or home-school, gays are taking over the educational system! Bout damn time someone did.
And lastly... be assured that if my God lined up 1 million babies on a set of steps and I could have chosen any one of those million, I would have
walked up to my Matthew and taken him into my arms. With this knowledge. And never regret it.
Safety is my only concern and as I have said, he isnt looking to die.
Thank you for reading.
