You just got owned by Ask Amy. (photo via Towleroad)

This week, a concerned parent wrote in to "Ask Amy," the Washington Post's syndicated advice column, asking what to do about her son being gay. She described her fears that people in her church group would find out and then "make fun of me for having a gay child." (People in church groups are jerks, apparently.) Even though this mother had tried to "reason" with her child to stop being gay, he was being petulant and wouldn't stop. She suspected it was because she forgot his birthday "for the past three years."
