I haven't spoken with my older brother in over six years. He's been in the Coast Guard for 24 years, and I have rarely seen him since he left home when I was 8, for boot camp.

He was always a Phillies fan, just not a big one like me.

A couple of minutes ago, he called me. (How he got my number I don't know, but maybe there's special priviledges when working for the government.)He said he just wanted to call and say "congrads" and that he's glad the Phillies won, and see ya.

I said, "Wait! Wait. Want to talk for a few minutes? I'm taking a break from work." He said, "No! I don't really want to talk to you and just wanted to call about the Phillies."

I don't get what the big deal is about me being gay. I'm not even worthy enough to talk to just because I love a guy? This is so crazy and that phone call was just sooooo insulting!

Anyway, I'm not going to let it ruin my day and my celebration. It makes me a bit sad, yes, but I've waited way too long to be this excited, and now my Phillies have done it! It's my day! Fuck him!

Rich

Rich,

That's right. Brother or no, don't let someone else's bigotry and narrowmindedness ruin your big day. If this is how he wants it, fine - his loss.

Meanwhile -

Yay Phillies!!!!!! smile
Yay Rich !!!!!!!!! smile


Much cheering,
Larry

Sounds like he might be a good one to list in the "Fuck You" thread. LOL

When I came out, my parents refused to speak to me for over 3 years. It really sucks. I'm sorry.

My humble advice... you can't push your way into his life. Just keep your door open.

GO PHILLIES!

Since I confronted my perp. brother in august, I haven't heard from him. (Good Riddens) I have a total of 7 siblings and only 2 of them talk to me. The rest think I am a "nut case". I guess they feel I should "just get over it".

The way I feel today, they, family that is, can all fuck off!

Family!!!!!What Family????????????

DAM; Why do I let them Piss me off like they do?

Rich,
Congrats on the Phillies.

I wonder if your brother wanted to reach out but needs to do it slowly. He did call with an initially positive message.

I understand if you don't agree, but just wanted to throw this out there.

Peace to you and your relations,
Nat(ureDrum)

Love them from a distance is all you can really do, my brother told me one day over the phone my wife was a n*g@r and my children were nasty, becouse they are half black.

Greenspan,

Sorry about what your brother said about your wife and kids.
I have a cousin who lives in North Carolina and my family back there has disown him becauses of whom he chose to love.
It's not fair but some people never overcome their ignorance.

Mike

Rich,

If you would read before you react(Which you seem to do alot of)you would see I was responding to greenspan and not you.
Also didn't know that I needed your permission to respond to posts.
I thought it was public domain once it was posted.

Bullys don't usually like the people who stand up to them.

Thank you very much.

Mike
