I think his dad was talking about the makeup and being concerned with what you look like in character..

no what I mean is people like him that think all theater is like glee and that high school musical shit. just because OP said he was in a play and likes theater, it doesn't mean he likes glee.

84, Glee isn't the same as acting, and if you don't know that, it's time you reconsider dropping out of highschool, idiot.

I have a best friend that's an actor and he is not gay. actually I know a lot of people that are in theater and they are not gay

Isn't that what famous actors do? put on clothes and act? does that make them gay? No I dont think so.

I was in theatre during highschool, and there were 2 out of 40 guys who were gay. That means there were more people on the football team who were gay than actors. So chill out, and besides, who are you to decide if a job is gay or not?

I always thought it was strange that people praise actors in Hollywood, gay and straight alike, but kids are always picked on for acting in school and college plays. Where do you think guys like George Clooney, Hugh Jackman, Johnny Depp, Brad Pitt, and Jason Statham picked up acting? Yes all of those men are definitely homosexuals, automatically, because they dressed up and acted as someone else for a play or show of some sort. Obviously.

Let's just hope that you don't have to appear nude like Daniel Radcliffe. That would really alter his opinion on you.

very true. one of my friends brothers is a closet gay and his parents threaten to kill him if he admits or shows he is gay. it sucks. but people are people.

You don't even know what it was like back in ye old days. I used to have to walk 10 miles to school and back, uphill (each time of course), in the rain.. twice a day! And get off my grass! Kids these days...

Wait, what? How does not understanding acting make him oldschool? Acting's been around for centuries.

VitaLp, are you arguing for the mere sake of arguing? It's not a simple case of not understanding acting, although even a 5 year old should know all about it. It's a case of the dad equating acting and/or theatre performing with being gay. That's not a lack of understanding, that's wilful homophobic bullshit.

Reply

Oh man, I know I have to tread lightly here now. I'm not arguing for the sake of arguing; it shits me to no end when young people assume that when an older person doesn't understand something it's because they're 'oldschool' and it's not just a simple lack of understanding. And how is OP's dad homophobic? He's willing to accept it, he just doesn't get that it's an act.

Reply

VitaLp, homophobia isn't just hating gay people. It's a loose term and can also cover the sort of criminal ignorance on the dad's part. I'm just saying it takes more effort and self-derping to think of acting as feminine or gay than it does to realise that's not true at all. It's self-evident, it's got nothing to do with being "old-school" or just not have read up on the psychological journals on acting. BaconDave, I'm not even talking to you. Go away and stop looking for a reaction,

Ok, I see where the trouble is here - We're reading the FML in two different ways. I take it as the dad not understanding 'acting' and thinking the son is actually gay, but I'm guessing you see it as the father believing the son is gay *because* he's an actor, in which case I completely understand where you're coming from - I just don't see the FML that way. Agree to disagree?

Reply

Hahaha, yes you're right, we're reading it differently. Nothing to disagree on though, I agree with what you're saying from the way you read it. :)

Reply

C'mon, since you act like you know everything, please explain this to me. Also, please don't call me "son," you are only about four months older than me.

Reply

i read it the way vital read it. The father just doesn't understand that the kid's acting out a part and he's not really gay. But Kay also gave me another point of view. I have heard of older senior citizens thinking that drama class is feminine. You both made very good, valid points.

At least you know that he would accept you. A lot of parents would be pissed and try to convince them that they're not gay... cool dad if you ask me.
