The following letter appeared yesterday on the Facebook page of FCKH8, a gay-friendly / activist apparel company, and quickly went viral.

In a very direct letter, this grandfather stands up to his daughter for disowning her own son for being gay and lets her know that the grandson has not failed as a man -- rather she has failed as a parent.

In a time when more and more young people are afraid to come out, not just because they are afraid of what their friends may think, but because of what their parents may think, it is nice to see that some people will still stand up for family and what they believe in, even when others will not. This grandfather should be proud of himself and proud of his grandson, while the mother should be ashamed of herself.
