The much praised letter, from FCKH8.com via Facebook.A letter written from a dad to his gay son Nate is going viral on the Internet because of its simple, hopeful message of love. The letter was posted on the Facebook page of FCKH8.com, an organization aimed at empowering youth through its snarky, gay-positive T-shirts, videos and activist campaigns. Fans often send in photos of inspiring items, from cakes topped with “I’m gay!” to jack o’lanterns carved with “FCKH8.”

“We get a lot of crazy stuff, so I almost didn’t look at it,” FCKH8.com founder Luke Montgomery told Yahoo! Shine about the letter, which was emailed to them by Nate, a Michigan high-school student. But when he did read it, he said, “I cried.”

Here is the letter: “I overheard your phone conversation with Mike last night about your plans to come out to me,” it reads. “The only thing I need you to plan is to bring home OJ and bread after class. We are out, like you now. I’ve known you were gay since you were six, I’ve loved you since you were born. - Dad P.S. Your mom and I think you and Mike make a cute couple.”

People do change. He appears to be acting more grown up and taking responsibly. Let's give him a fair chance.

WasteWater, personally I could care less whether you like me or not. That won't affect me one way or another. it's clear you still want to fight with me, and it's very easy to beat someone down when they're not fighting back. I've never run from a fight in my life, even when it was a smart thing to do. If it's a fight you want, I'll go toe to toe with you. But what I'd really like is, to just try and get along. You don't have to like me or even converse with me for that matter. I'm just wanting to try and make up, a little, for all the hard times I've given people. Some deserved it but most didn't. So I'll not try and persuade you again, for I'm not one to beg for anything. The balls in your court, I'll follow your lead.
Nice post bro. It takes a real man to fess up and take responsibility for things. This shows real character.

I had planned on it :) I'm all for giving him the benefit of the doubt!

So far, great. We're taking a short break, code for a "disco nap" and going to continue the celebration later. Thanks for mentioning it.

Hey Curt, hope you made your hubby's birthday, a day to remember. Hope your whole day went well. I gotta say, looks like things have done a 180 for me since I was last on here. It flat out amazes me that WasteWater has come around and is willing to give me a chance. Really didn't see that coming. I have to say that you and UVE sorta helped me get my head on straight. Not only did you two see a little different side of me several months ago, and have been friendly to me ever since, even though I was still going on with my abuse toward others, I have seen you two get mad at others and go off on them like I do. It sort of made me see how others view my colorful post. I know it happens from time to time to the best of us. So I just want to thank you two, and for your inspirational comments. Just hope I can, somehow, show others that people can change. I may not always, or not even for the most part, see eye to eye with you all, but I'll conduct myself in a totally non abusive manner.
Thank you. Your true heart showed through months ago. There are some whack posters who only come on here to make 3rd grade taunts. I found out a year ago that they are useless and I have NO problem flinging it back onto them with both hands. They are unreachable, so why try to coax them into the human race?

Obviously, it was apparent from the first that you are not like those and have a heart and a brain.

From what I have read about Topix, it was set up as a way of communicating for people from all over the world, who would not have a way to chat in day to day life.

You are not the first conservative I have gotten to know and won't be the last I hope. I am a little wary to mention it, but I have even gotten friendly with "Luv Sarah Palin" and she and I often chat privately on occasion.

Good day to you and have a great week. Your graciousness is highly moving.

No one is mad any longer at someone who can speak reasonably, even though you may disagree with others.

Sweetness, he says he is trying to be more moderate and is also trying to understand the whole gay thing. I'm believing it, can't you?

Can you give him the benefit of the doubt and let it play out a bit?

You most certainly DO, and it's been suggested quite a few times that you get some. Your constant foul and obscene anti-gay diatribes prove it.

Your county mental health society can direct you to good, solid, FACT-BASED secular counselling.

Get some.

Hey we had fun pitching insults but this is really better isn't it? Abusing people doesn't build any bridges does it.

I have never condoned or agreed with anything NoQ has ever posted before the last two weeks. He was at least one anti-gay person who kept one username, and I at least knew where he stood. I say give him a chance, because, we have seen so much worse out of him. Seriously, if he is sincere, do we want to destroy that? If is is not sincere, we lost nothing.

I don't know what t make of this extreme makeover, and I don't have time tonight to read back far enough, but I hope you find that other posters respond to you in the same vein that you are now posting to them.

I hope you continue to post this way - is't so much more interesting, even when we don't all agree on everything.

There are many posters that I vehemently disagree with on just about everything, but we don't insult each other, either, and I love it when it works that way.

Have a good evening.

You're right, it doesn't.
To be perfectly honest with you, I made up this stupid handle after being abused so much as my real person. I actually am much nicer than WasteWater. WasteWater doesn't take shit off anybody and is very hard edged. Many people hate WasteWater but he came into existence due to abusive behaviors of others. WasteWater is also an alter ego and represents a person I once was dealing with school yard bullies.

Hope this helps you to understand more things.
