My dad ran into an old friend of his today, and they were catching up...
Friend: "So how's your daughter doing?"
Dad: "Great! She's in college now, and she's doing really well. We're really proud of her."
Friend: "What's she studying?"
Dad: "Political Science."
Friend: "And does she have a boyfriend?"
Dad: "Actually, she came out as gay several years ago."
Friend: "You know that's... UNNATURAL... right??"
Dad: "No, I don't think so, actually. My daughter's sexual orientation is a biological reality. It makes biological sense to me. You know what doesn't make biological sense? Her damned cat walks on a leash. A LEASH. Just trots along on a leash like a damned dog. It's the weirdest thing I've ever seen in my life. THAT is what's unnatural." Best dad ever
"If you can survive the abuse, you can survive the recovery."
