A father stands up for his son after a mother accuses him of 'making' her son gay. The man's son was out to his friends and had kissed one of them during a game of truth and dare. The video of the kiss was posted online and made its way to the mother who then accused the man's son of 'making' her son gay.

The father defended his son and offered to provide a space for the friend, who is bi, at his house. The mother then accused the man of threatening to kidnap her son and 'make him fully gay'.

The man is now questioning if he handled the situation correctly and asks if he is the A-hole for defending his son and his son's friend. Read on to find out what happened.

Father defends son's friend's sexuality and faces backlash 😡

A father on Reddit is facing criticism after defending his son's friend's sexuality. The friend, who is bi, shared a video of him and the father's son making out during a game of truth or dare. After the video was shared among parents, the friend's mother contacted the father to express her belief that the father's son had 'made him gay'.

When the father refused to 'fix' the friend, the mother accused him of verbal abuse and threatened to take legal action. Despite receiving backlash from other parents, the father stood up for the friend's sexuality and offered him a place to stay.

The friend, who had not been home since the video started circulating, is now staying with the father and his son. The father's actions have sparked a conversation about acceptance and support for the LGBTQ+ community.

How can we better support our loved ones who identify as LGBTQ+? Share your thoughts about the situation in the comments below.
