While the rest of the world is thankfully more accepting and loving of the LGBT+ community than they were in years past, “coming out” can still be a stressful step for many people — especially kids — who worry that their friends or family members may not accept them for who they are.
It’s no surprise, then, that in today’s digital age, many kids choose to come out to their parents via text message instead of face-to-face. And that’s exactly what one young woman did when she chose to let her dad know that she was gay. The father, who goes by SunofAbyss on Imgur, shared the screenshots of their conversation. It’s a wholesome conversation, but as you’ll see, he doesn’t completely accept his daughter for who she is.
The conversation starts with the revelation that the dad learned that his daughter had joined the “GSA.”
It soon became clear, though, that the dad and daughter’s understanding of what “GSA” stands for were two different organizations.
You see, while Dad had cookies on the brain…
… his daughter was trying to tell him something important about herself.
The young woman clarified what she was trying to communicate: she was a lesbian and had joined the GSA (Gay-Straight Alliance) for support.
Thankfully, she didn’t have to worry about how her dad would react. He didn’t even blink (or at least, that’s what his text messages would imply).
The sweet conversation took a turn, however, when the subject turned back to cookies.
The father made it clear that he disapproved of his daughter’s lifestyle choice… and her mother’s as well, for that matter.
Thankfully, it looks like this dispute will be settled just fine in this funny family.
