@11 "love thy neighbor" it doesn't mean pick and choose which one gets love. It means love those around you no matter their a race gender or sexuality. Let God deal with them when they die because right now we're living in hell and need each other to not be spiteful.
Besides, maybe it's just my phone but every goddamn time I type gave it autocorrects to have. I have tried everything. I even just had to pause for a second when typing that last 'gave' and the one just now in order to hit the x for the autocorrect to not go through. Even if I type it correctly, it still changes it.
It's a sad day when you get a black eye for being a decent human being.
I hate this expression! It makes some people feel that they shouldn't even bother to try to do what's right because they don't get the acknowledgement they feel they deserve. Knowing you're doing what's right should be enough of a reward to yourself-- regardless of the outcome.
#69 because it's on FML.. a site made specifically for stories of things gone wrong. They aren't going to have happy endings and that saying is extremely pessimistic and does give a sense of uselessness to good deeds. However this is not a site I'd look to for positive results.
I agree with you 46, however the phrase only has that community meeting because we've given it. Coming out as gay is, for lack of a better phrasing, the most publicized. With that being said it is entirely possible for a person belonging to a family of a strict religious sect to come out as believing something different. In both cases the one "coming out of the closet" (which means you've been hiding your true self) faces scrutiny and being ostracized by their family. In this fml context it is fair to assume the friend was coming out as gay but untrue to assume the phrase has no other purpose.
#91 Exactly. I've had many atheist friends use "coming out of the closet" it's not just a gay thing and trust me some parents would easily give their friend the assumed "converter" a black eye. That being said I guess it's obvious OP's friend was gay in this context.
stop being so full of yourself 54. it can also be taken that the family got into a fight and op got in the middle to protect his friend. im not saying your idea isnt right, its a good possibility, but stating it at a fact when OBVIOUSLY many people are taking it differnt ways , so stop being so stuck up when there are more ways to interpret something, and they are just as plausable as your scenario.
I even have a fourth option for your narrow little mind to consider, #54. Maybe no one thought he was his friend's lover, and maybe he didn't even break up a fight. It's just as possible that his friends family is actually horrible enough to punch their son's friend for supporting him in his sexuality. Those kind of people sadly do exist. All in all, all we know is that OP's friend's family has at least one asshole in it.
#54, It is physically IMPOSSIBLE to be certain about something that has to be interpreted. Why? Because its an INTERPRETATION. That means that your idea of what happened might not be the same as someone else's, and unless you were there, understood the situation from everyone's point of view, or knew the exact circumstances (WITHOUT assuming,) then don't come yelling at the rest of the FML community about how we are wrong about our opinions and ideas. FYL, OP.
