ESH. You knew what your mother's views were. To be surprised at her being unable to accept your homosexuality is disingenuous. Also, to kick her out after her first reaction to a very unique concept to her of her son being gay is less than understanding. 🙄


NTA. Toxic family, no obligation. She should have thought twice.
