This thing just blew my mind when I found it to be true. My parents have hated gays since I can remember and I have been educated in the same spirit for my entire life. I have always been told by my father that gays are an abomination and that they don’t even deserve to be called human beings. It all got worse lately, since the legalization of the same-sex marriage in increasingly more states and countries. It was all that my father was talking about.
I have always thought that he was somewhat right. I never felt like it was natural for two men or two women to sleep with each other. I still don’t see how could this be according to the laws of nature. But on the other hand, I have never really had anything against gay people in the same manner as my father. But I could understand his behavior and opinions in that regard. I have never shared his views all the way thought. I always considered that what people chose for themselves in matters of happiness and love, should only be their concern. I didn’t see why would I care if anybody was gay or not, as long as it did not affect me in any way.
However, there are few people that I found to be that decisive in going against one class such as my father is towards gays. He even participated in some anti-gay rallies in our hometown.
Now the awkward part is that I have found out something about him that completely confused me. Now I do not know what to think anymore.
A couple of days ago I was hanging out with my friends at a nearby restaurant and a car stopped. I just happened to look that way when the door opened and I saw my father coming out from the car. The driver was a man and my dad bended and kissed him on the lips. It was a passionate kiss that could not have been mistaken for anything else other than what it was. I was perplexed and I remained in denial for a day or something. I kept telling myself that maybe I have seen it wrong. But today I have checked my father’s phone and he had a lot of messages from a certain Mark. Some of those messages were explicit to say the least.
I am still confused by the entire situation and I don’t know whether to tell him that I know everything and ask for the truth or just let it go and see what will eventually turn out. I fear that this could ruin my parents’ marriage and our family and I am really concerned about this aspect.
I do not see how could, a man who has been against gays his entire life, be a gay himself. And I still do not know why would he keep that appearance if the truth contradicts him. I mean, if he is gay, why is he married to my mom and why does he hide it?
