  1. Nicely done video. I chuckled when this kid said that he’s been dealing with this his whole life, when most of didn’t come out to our parents until our 20s or 30s, or in my case, never. Brave little soul. Hope this means he has a good start in life.

  2. Good, brave kid. Nine and a half minutes ….

    He still seems quite sad at the end and nearly in tears but he fought back. I think I can guess why …..

    NOT ONCE did his father say, “I love you,” or “I still love you.”

    This boy needed to hear his father say he loves him but it was never offered.

  3. It’s too bad you don’t have some type of counter for the number of (total) views for your videos and pics.

  4. Hey Dad, it is your business, and it should mean a lot to you. We live in a dangerous world, and your lackadaisical attitude is, at best, somewhat uncommon, and at worst, irresponsible. And it’s an attitude that’s rarer still among teenage boys just starting to sow their sexual oats and coming to grips (LOL) with their manhood.

    As brave as your son is, he is a kid at risk. Sooner or later, odds are he will have to defend himself, physically, against one, or more likely, several of his classmates, and the odds are they will be bigger and stronger than he is. That’s the thing with bullies – they’re usually big.

    Coming out should never be sugar-coated by parents with understanding or approving platitudes – it calls for serious action, and education – that beautiful young man needs to know the stats about bashing and bullying. He needs to learn the finer points of situational awareness, and even when to shut up about it. And just in case the SHTF, as it almost certainly will, he needs the skills and fortitude to prevail, or at least survive.

    Get busy Dad. Enroll your boy in a martial arts school right now. Buy him a Bowflex so he can buff himself up. And teach him to shoot so when he’s old enough to lawfully possess and carry a concealed weapon, he’ll be ready. Hopefully, it’ll all be a big waste of time and money – but just in case, and if …….

    1. lol, he isn’t living in Russia. His dad gave the best response possible taking it like the most usual thing. Every kid can get bullied but parents shouldn’t worry their kids that much if there is no trouble.

  5. ❦I give the kid credit, you could well see his nervousness about informing his father of his sexuality followed by his surprised reaction at his father’s easy acceptance of it.
    I believed his father reacted as well as one should who cares about his son. He gave him a reassuring hug afterward plus explained some of the problems he might face including those who may react negatively to his sexuality. He also told him to keep him informed if he had any problems which could occur at the hands of some of his idiot peers.

    ~I agree with Horselip’s rationale to a certain degree but also think it would be lovely if any and all school bullies could be well⚡️tazed immediately following any bullying incidents much like Pavlov’s dogs, to learn the error of their evil ways and truly share the pain of their victims. Best would be if their fellow students could view them pissing themselves as they scream madly while thrashing on the floor!

  6. I was bothered when the dad said, “I don’t care”. I know he meant that he loves his son regardless of his orientation, but my overly-sensitive self heard it as “Your orientation is irrelevant.” Which, as we all know, isn’t true at all.

  7. The father was trying to be quite informative and he specifically referred to it not mattering to himself

  8. We all know what it was we would like to have heard. However, if we believe in the “platinum rule” we should be accepting of what it is that our parents, significant others, or friends could have offered us.

    This is a Dad, to me, who encompasses all of the acceptance, tolerance and good faith I wish I would have received even 6 short years ago when I came out during college. He may not have gone about it flawlessly, in a way you would have liked, or in a way we personally would all have benefited from… but he went about it in his way. A way his son knew (or so at least I hope) to be non-effrontery, judgmental, or bigoted. That is all any of us need. To be loved, understood and accepted by those who we love and those who love us.

    I give this father a 9.5/10 for his efforts towards his son and his son’s reality.

  9. When I told my father he said “I just want you to be happy” and that was that.

    Listening to this video I’ve little doubt that the father had a strong idea already. I do worry about the wisdom of posting this online though. I wonder if the father knew in advance that it was going to be posted.
