When my little brother came out his BF was scared that his parents would find out from my parents. So scared he broke up with my brother! My brother was devastated, accepted by his family when he came out, but rejected by his boyfriend. About a week after the breakup my brother calls his ex BF's house on the land line as his ex wouldn't answer his cell. His mom answered and he asked to speak to the boy. The mom told him to get his ass over to their house and explain to their son that they didn't know he was gay until they broke up. He was depressed so they snooped to make sure he wasn't in trouble or on drugs. They found their messages on his computer and figured it out. The parents didn't care if their son was gay, they were conservatives but couldn't stand the homophobes affiliated with their politics.
My brother went over and explained the situation to his ex, and they lived happily ever after (7 years now).
This is a true story from one of my best friends who was once a homophobe, no longer because he realized two of his best friends were gay.
Everyone deserves to love who they choose, how they choose, and enjoy happiness.
