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…
