... I don't see a significant problem with that And anyway #2, coming from someone with homophobic parents, I can understand it is hard for the previous generation to let go of their homophobia. And even if they have no problem with homosexuality, they tend to not want their children to be gay. I mean, their children are going to get a lot of grief from people over it; they're not going to lead the normal lives their parents pictured. No matter their beliefs, it is difficult for them.

Well the fact that your son is gay is actually a really good thing! The fact that he's hooking up with the help, not so good... but it's just a phase, I'm sure he'll one day find a successful young man who doesn't clean pools for a living. And to the person who posted #5 you are a racist bastard and you don't deserve for people not to have broken your legs. Ohhh and last but def not least being gay is 1000% OK if you think otherwise go to a third world country where the Taliban rule and join them.
..Okay 1st I don't see how being gay is a "really good thing". It's just a relationship, i don't see how a gay relationship could be any better than a straight relationship. 2nd why would you assume that just because the son is in love with "the help" doesn't make "the help" a "successful young man." He has a job. They probably make good money. It's sad that you judge a life based on what they do for a living. 3rd the OP never stated he wasn't "1000%" okay with the relationship, but more how he found out.
What stereotype would he be thinking of #27? The about how gay men are at a higher risk for AIDS than straight men? Cause when there is statistical proof, it's not a "stereotype" it's a fact. Admittedly, it's mostly due to gay people from the '70s, but the point remains. Also, I wouldn't have a problem with you if you didn't use your homosexuality as a justification for your air of superiority and self-righteousness. Somehow, your sexual preferences make you a better person than everyone else? What about people who prefer reverse cowgirl position? Does that give them wisdom? Does a foot fetish give you a better sense of humor? People like you give gays just as bad a name as real-life Brunos. Why don't you get off your high horse and define yourself by more than your sexual orientation?
@11, how is being gay 'a really good thing'? I don't see how different it is from a straight relationship... I think you're one of those people who treat gay people like they're handicap. My good friend is gay & he absolutely hates it when people single him out like that... it's just a sexual orientation. @69 I agree with you... Since when is AIDS off limits to lesbians? That makes no sense.
@11: Alright, I'm gay, and I would disagree about it being a good thing. I would actually prefer to be straight, simply because I don't want all the homophobes out there attacking me and thinking I'm a freak (my parents included). That said, I do feel a bit glad about it. I feel like being gay works out quite well for me. I mean, I don't even want kids! Most gay partners don't have kids, whereas if you're straight, you'll find it difficult to find a partner who doesn't want kids. I'm also a lot more socially comfortable around guys than girls, and to be honest I think that you get a lot of crazy girls, and am glad I don't have to worry about dating them . But I'd STILL rather be straight, just because life would be easier. Homophobia phails
lots of gay people are more tolerant because we've had to put up with the shitty, ignorant people that life is constantly bombarding us with. we can more easily relate to other minorities. I do wish that people would leave being gay to just a sexual preference and just one aspect of a much more dynamic, complex person. this also entails getting rid of prejudice and letting us live our lives, even the so called "real life Brunos", which, in the way you said it, is as prejudice as saying "fag", or "faggot".
Oh my god, your comment is stupid in so many ways! What's wrong with hooking up with the 'help'? Stop thinking of your self as superior over other people. He's a pool boy. Maybe it's a part time job. But if it isn't who are you to judge what's considered as a successful job? Some people in the world are needed to clean pools. Otherwise then we would have no pool cleaners and all the pools will be dirty. And you think that #5 is racist? Look at yourself first!

This isn't an FML or a YDI. The poolboy and your son are just living their lives and, apparently, enjoying it. Good for them. Now leave them alone and live your life.
I was going to say pretty much exactly what you said #78 This FML doesn't seem to be relevant to gay bashing. Age and the un-professionalism of the pool boy in stealing beer on top of dating any part of the client's family seem to be the FML. Meeting his daughter's boyfriend through similar circumstances would probably have unsettled him just as much, especially, as the commenter above me pointed out, if the age differences are big enough to cause legal unrest (if the pool boy is an adult and the child-in-question is underage).
