i’ll never forget an incident as an 8-year-old in barbados.
one of my father’s friends commented i was “soft“.
it really hurt my feelings and of course,
he blamed it on being raised by my grandmother and mother.
when i told him how it made me feel when we reconnected,
and how he never defended me at that moment,
he legit brushed it off but told me how hurt he was that i was gay.
the same father that said he didn’t want to call my phone because:
“I didn’t want the man you might be with to beat you up because another man was calling you.”
If only we could have fathers like Judge Mathis
he has a new show on e! called mathis family matters.
when you watch stuff like this with his son,
greg mathis jr…
Imagine if more black gay men had fathers like Judge Mathis. pic.twitter.com/AnCvmSSY6g

…is really encouraging tbh.
when you have a father that is supportive of your sexuality,
it’s imperative that you love and protect them as they do you.
It’s hard out here as many males expect their sons to be like them.
i’m sure my father would love if i was a sports star like him,
fuckin’ tons of vixens,
and probably juggling child support for my 3 bastard children.
kudos to judge mathis for being a supportive father to his gay son.
he could have been like jess hilarious,
who would be upset and disappointed if her son was gay.
she wants grandbabies and a beautiful daughter-in-law.

so it’s about…
it’s giving self-absorbed.
she does realize gays do adopt right?
I’m sure most straight parents would be disappointed.
that is the reality because it is a tough thing to comprehend.
it’s a new life change with a lot of questions.
they need to get TF over it.
it’s not about them; it’s about their kid’s life.
get educated and get supportive.
