Update to Post BelowHere's a quick update about my last post. I called my mom to vent about my step-mom telling my step-brother that she and my dad would not be attending the wedding. (Oh, my twin brother also mentioned to me that the only thing my step-mom told him was that she thought "this type of thing" was illegal in the state of Texas). So, my mom could tell I was worked up, and she offered to call my dad to try to talk things out a bit.
Note to self- letting mom talk to dad when they are divorced is usually not going to go over well, especially regarding something like this.
My mom called me a little while later to say that I should probably give my dad some space. When I asked why she went through the conversation. It went something like this:
Mom: Well, I was just talking to your son, and he is pretty upset right now.
Dad: Which one? Why is he upset?
Mom: Brady. Apparently [Your wife] told his step-brother that you guys would not be going to the wedding.
Dad: (Already angry--in a raised voice) Well then he shouldn't be gay.
Mom: What? Did you really just say that? This is not some choice he made. I can't believe you are making him go through all of this all over again.
Dad: (More raised voice) I know he can't change, but he certainly doesn't have to have weddings and parties to celebrate it.
Mom: Look here you little a--hole. He is your son and you are making his life so much more difficult than it has to be. And if you're going continue to be a f---ing a--hole with your b---- wife, then he's better off not speaking to you anyway, and I'll tell him that (hangs up phone).
Now, I'm not going to say that my mom is always calm and collected about stuff, but she isn't the type of person that goes around cussing people out. I'm sad that she got into the middle of this and got all upset about it. I'd rather deal with it and take the blows myself, but I had no idea it would get out of hand like that. I told my boyfriend that maybe it was good for my dad to hear some of my anger (even if it is through my mom) because I certainly won't ever let it out. I'm way too low-key for that, but now someone has to go clean up the mess.
