queer: Denial FAIL!
Update to this entry, it appears to be a hoax, please see the footnote.
I’m concerned that my son has a secret girlfriend?
My 17 year old son has been very secretive with me lately, recently he has started to refuse to go to church with the family and tonight when I was going through his room I found a magazine with naked men in it. He obviously has a girlfriend that he is hiding from me that brought that magazine into my home and I am afraid they are having intercourse and I am greatly concerned that he is going to get her pregnant.
What should I do about this?
Seeing it there made me laugh so hard I nearly swallowed my gum. I then dug around the net to find it and turns out, it’s still up on Yahoo! Answers*. The original question was updated to respond to those that were trying to say the only obvious thing here is that your son is gay. The denial runs deep.
It’s both so sad that one must laugh and just plain sad. The comments are typical internet fare that one should expect when bible meets queer, but coming away from it I hope that the kid will realize his crappy situation and find a way out of there. Still, I have to bless the wonders of the internet because every day this mother returns to lash out on this page, maybe that’s one more day the kid won’t wind up in reparative therapy.
People are funny… scary funny. 😯
* I feel a bit of a fool for not having even more scrutiny on this one. The FAIL Blog screenshot says “Your Open Question” meaning that the screenshot submitted to the blog was taken by the person that submitted the question. It’s a case of internet baiting, which I don’t truck with. I’ve changed the link to Google’s cached version of the page and I’ve created a PDF of the page and subsequent comments.
