Man Comes Out to Family, Is Cursed, Beaten & Thrown Out--All on Video
Twenty-year-old Daniel was raised in a hyper religious household, so he had to know coming out to his ultra-conservative family would not go smoothly. But he probably didn't know it was going to go this badly. He was cursed, beaten, and thrown out.
And it's all recorded for you to watch.
User rythymknight posted a video on Reddit of the incident. You can scroll down and watch the whole ugly hurtful thing--but you might want to know what you're getting into.
Daniel's mother can be heard saying, "You have made a choice, independent of what you've told your daddy...You can deny it all you want to but I believe in the word of God. And God creates nobody that way, it is a path that you have chosen.
Daniel says he can't change his sexuality, citing scientific proof and basic biology, but she won't have it. "Since you have chosen that path, we will not support you any longer. You will need to move out and find wherever you can to live and do you want to. I will not let people believe I condone what you do." ('Cause it's all about you, mom, right?)
Then things get really hateful. An argument starts with a voice yelling at Daniel, "Let me tell you something you piece of shit!" Daniel is hit and shouts of "damned queer" are heard.
At that point rythymknight says he was forced to leave. "It's been a really traumatic experience for [my boyfriend], and I feel so terrible and angry that this happened," he said. "Fortunately, he's living with a friend for now. Seems like he can be there long-term until he's able to support himself."
