Dad overhears gay son's plans to come out. Totally spoils his plans with this extremely heartwarming letter.
Dammit, this nosey, eavesdropping dad is making us tear up.
This is the preliminary "It's cool" note a dad wrote after he overheard his teenage son making plans to come out to him. See, unlike Senator Rob Portman, not all Dads need to have a sit-down with Dick Cheney before they can openly support their sons for who they are. Some of them just need to see their six-year-old kid act a little gay (it usually happens when your son starts DVR'ing "Desigining Women" reruns) and they think, "Whelp, gay son. What's for dinner?" Great job with the unconditional love Dad. Not so great with the respect for privacy. Maybe stop listening in on your son's phone calls to his boyfriend, weirdo.
