Not to long ago, I told my wife that I believe I would have an easier time accepting my son as a gay man, as opposed to a Yankee fan. Her response was to tell me that the comment I has just made was really messed up, which left me no choice to explain.
If he's grows up to become a gay man, then that's who he was always meant to become. If he grows up to become a Yankee fan, then there was a choice made somewhere along the line, and I can't respect my son if he makes that choice.
She called me an idiot and then left the room.
