Reddit post reads: "My father told me that I made this bed myself by choosing my lifestyle, so I should grow up and learn to lay in it."The poster got scholarships to attend college and met her current wife.
They now have a daughter, 2, and have built a wonderful family life together. She said that things "turned out pretty okay, all things considered."The original poster thought she'd put her biological family in the past after having zero contact with them since she was forced to move out.
However, her mom managed to contact her to explain that they were having "financial issues" and needed somewhere to stay.User u/madetheirbed_aita says she "didn't respond" and hoped to ignore it, until she got a call a few days later.
On the other end of the call was the poster's father, who had left her dwelling on his hateful words for all these years.The poster wasn't inclined to offer any help, which only infuriated her dad even more, who felt she "should want to support" her parents."I replied saying that maybe if their support of me hadn't ended the moment I told them I was a lesbian, I'd be willing to help them, but unfortunately they made their bed themselves so they can lay in it too."After sharing the Reddit post on February 23, the woman updated it to share that she has sent links to her mom for reference, but she's blocked them from further contact."I sent my mom an email with a bunch of links to soup kitchens, food pantries, housing assistance, etc.
