@51, Freedom of speech is not an excuse to be a dick. The OP's grandma has the right to say whatever she wants but the OP's right to live his life the way he wants to, without being accosted, far outweighs grandma's right to say whatever her bigoted mind comes up with. I feel bad for everyone in your life if you think bigotry is just an opinion... nobody deserves to be told they're despised because they love someone.

Freedom of speech only applies to the government punishing you. If you get disowned by your family for being homophobic, well, sucks to be you, but you shouldn't be a dick.


Ah, apologies if #51 was indeed being sarcastic. It's too often people pull the "freedom of speech" card when trying to defend being an asshole, so I have a spiel ready to shoot off whenever I see it. Sorry again!

or invite her and sit her right up the front, where she can't avoid seeing how much you and your husband - to - be love each other, and can't act out because she is where _everybody_ can see her.

When my grandparents were younger, they didn't even know there was such a thing as homosexuality. It's such a foreign concept for older generations, but that's still no excuse for your grandma to condone your happiness.

I wish people would realize it's really not a big issue and stop getting offended when someone says something negative towards them. Everyone has an opinion and you can't change it. Just change how you react.

Homophobe means you're afraid of homosexuals. I doubt she cowers in fear when a homosexual is around. Arachnophobia doesn't mean you hate spiders, it means you have a paralyzing fear of them.

Actually, #27, the definition of 'phobia' is an extreme fear OR hatred of whatever you have the phobia of. So yes, arachnophobia could mean that you really hate spiders, and yes, homophobia is an accurate term for someone who hates gay people.

She is entitled to her opinion though and there are some scientists who have discovered that there is something "wrong" with gay people. Most ppl here will probably down vote me but just speaking out the truth.

She clearly does not respect you or your soon to be husband and will probably bring a lot of negativity to what is supposed to be the best day of your life. Add booze to that is a recipe for disaster I would politely un invite her but good luck OP and congrats

I was thinking the same thing. I hope she doesn't get drunk and ruin the wedding/reception. Her not being there would probably be the best option and I can't imagine anyone blaming you if you didn't let her come.
