Imagine your teenage son finally gathering the courage to come out to you, and your response is... less than ideal. One dad found himself in this exact situation when his 17-year-old son and his boyfriend approached him to share their relationship status. The father, already aware of his son's interest in men, thought he was being funny when he blurted out, 'Well, that's pretty f***ing gay.' However, his son and boyfriend didn't find the humor in the situation, and now the dad is left scrambling to fix the damage. 😬🏳️‍🌈

"Jokes like that are only acceptable AFTER you support them." 😬

"You made a mistake. I don't think that makes you an a**hole. You made a joke that flopped. Now you just have to apologize sincerely and give him an opportunity to have a conversation on the topic that leaves the jokes aside. You're doing your best. I say dumb things to my trans son on occasion, and I'm usually forgiven." 😅
