It's very difficult for people to come out of the closet, especially to their parents.  It's also difficult for some parents to deal with it.  There are people like that idiotic moron who wrote a letter disowning his gay son, and then there are people like Sally Field who can openly and lovingly talk about her son and his sexual orientation. She is not in any way ashamed. She loves her child unconditionally which, in my humble opinion, every parent should do without the slightest hesitation.

There was a picture floating around on Facebook over the weekend that got a lot of attention, and rightfully so. A father who wishes to remain anonymous, overheard his teenage son, Nate, on the phone with his boyfriend, Mike. They were trying to figure out a way for him to come out to his parents.

Well, instead of waiting for Nate to muster up the courage to tell him, his dad took matters into his own hands.  He wrote Nate a letter that read:

Nate, I overheard your phone conversation with Mike last night about your plans to come out to me. The only thing I need you to plan is to bring home OJ and bread after class. We are out, like you now. I've known you were gay since you were six. I've loved you since you were born. Dad.

P.S. Your mom and I think you and Mike make a cute couple.

As far as I'm concerned, this guy is a strong contender for Father of the year!  If you were in his position, would you have waited for Nate to come to you, or done something like he did?
