One of the greatest fears I have about being a father is that I’ll accidentally raise the next Hitler. I’m sure Adolph’s parents thought they were doing alright until they realized they brought up a genocidal maniac hell-bent on destruction.
However regardless of the fact that you do wind up bringing up a child that sucks, it doesn’t mean you need to take it sitting down. What’s more, regardless of the fact that you’ve achieved grandparent status, you can still teach your kiddos a thing or two about a thing or two.
Like this grandfather who absolutely tore into his daughter for kicking her gay son out of the house.
The bad-ass letter reads:
I’m disappointed in you as a daughter. You’re correct that we have a “shame in the family”, but mistaken about what it is.
Kicking Chad out of your home simply because he told you he was gay is the real “abomination” here. A parent disowning her child is what goes “against nature”.
The only intelligent thing I heard you saying in all this was that “you didn’t raise your son to be gay”. Of course you didn’t. He was born this way and didn’t choose it any more than he being left-handed. You however have made a choice of being hurtful, narrow-minded, and backward. So, while we are in the business of disowning our children, I think I’ll take this moment to say goodbye to you. I now have a fabulous (as the gay put it) grandson to raise, and I don’t have time for [a] heartless B-word of a daughter.
I[f] you find your heart, give us a call.
Not only does Gramps have shade for days, he also hand-wrote the letter on graphing paper. He should’ve drawn her a map of how to remove her head from her butt using the symmetrical boxes. (h/t imgur)
