A Girl Accidentally Came Out To Her Family And Totally Burned Her Homophobic Grandma.
OKAY SO STOP YELLING.
As the pic goes viral, the 16-year-old who experienced this happy event, Katie, portrays the entire story:
the door was shut before i realized what i had said, and then i ran into the bathroom, where i sent that text.
while i was hiding in the bathroom, my cousin knocked on the door, “you can come out now” she said, followed by “well i guess you already did that, but”
anyway, we took refuge in her room
apparently, after i left the room my grandmother turned to my mom and said something to the extent of “how could you let your daughter become a queer”
my mother, aunt, and uncle all went off at her for that one, there was quite a bit of yelling
after a while, my mother came upstairs and told me that she supported me no matter what, and then we left without talking to my grandmother.
the next morning, she called to apologize for her actions. i have no idea how sincere this apology was because my mother was the one on the phone with her, but i am still invited to christmas.
What a start to the fall holiday season. We hope that yours is full of surprising truth bombs and open hearts in the acceptance part.
