A man who chose to become a stay-at-home dad was constantly ridiculed by his older brother for not conforming to traditional gender roles. After years of enduring the jokes, the man finally stood up to his brother in a witty and unexpected way.

When his brother made a homophobic joke at a family gathering, the man responded by revealing intimate details about his sex life with his wife. The brother was embarrassed and demanded an apology, but the man refused. Now the family is torn apart and the man is questioning whether or not he was in the wrong.

Read on to find out what Reddit users had to say about the family feud in this situation.

SAHD shocks toxic brother with naughty secret 🤫

This SAHD's toxic brother has been making jokes about him for the past 7 years, insinuating that he's less of a man because his wife is the breadwinner. But after a few drinks, the SAHD and his wife came up with a naughty solution to shut him up.

When the brother made another derogatory comment, the SAHD revealed that he is a 'bottom' and enjoys being intimate with his wife using a dildo and harness. Everyone was shocked, and the brother finally shut up. But now he's refusing to attend family dinner unless the SAHD apologizes.

Is the SAHD the a**hole here? Let's dive into the comments and see what people have to say about this family drama.
