Every time we see people dogging Dwayne Wade out for how he loves and supports his gay son we think of situations like this.  At some point, if you live long enough, and you are unable to take care of yourself, you become your children's responsibility.  We're not saying we agree with this person, we're just saying treat others how you want to be treated, including your children.  

In a facebook post one man writes he took his father off life support after suffering years of homophobic abuse from his father despite his family's objections.  In the post he writes:

My entire family is mad I didn't keep my dad on life support, but I don't feel bad at all about it. From the time I was 8 to the time when his health began to fail, he abused me physically and emotionally for being gay. He kicked me out at 15 after I kept running away to escape his daily abuse. He had the opportunity to SUPPORT ME in LIFE and didn't. So when I was given the chance to keep him alive I didn't. I don't care who in the family don't like this, you all let him treat me horribly and turned the other way.

Whew chilay.
