    if the mom could do this the kid and dad are better off and they dont lose anything.

    of course the best case would be the daughter smartens up and they all work it out but since the problem is with the daughter they can only do so much.

    like i said i would do the same but i would probably have told her in person and left the door open just like him
    then id offer her professional help to deal with her bigotry and hatred and to do family therapy with her
    id also give her a time limit to get her act together before i pressed charges against her and fought for custody of my grandchild.

    How old was the "kid" that she kicked out? Obviously it would be wrong to kick a minor out of the house and onto the street.

    Would she be considered such a terrible person if she had kicked the son out for other reasons? How about depression? Paranoia? Schizophrenia? I guess since there are treatments for those mental disorders, she would be heartless, so yeah, instead of kicking him out, she should of sought treatment for his sickness/disorder.

    Why is disapproval of homosexuality "homophobic"? A phobia is a fear, often an unreasonable one. Just because someone disapproves of homosexuality or homosexual marriage does not in anyway indicate they are acting out of fear.

    Why is it ok to call homosexuals "homo" when using the term homophobia but not any other time? Homophobia, the fear of a homo. I guess it could be a fear of humans also, since humans are homo-sapiens. I guess it could be the fear of homo neanderthalensis, but that would be truly unreasonable as they have been extinct for a longtime now. No, homo in general usage is normally the shortening of the term homosexual is probably the most neutral term to use. Gay didn't have any real association prior to it being co-opted and abused.
    Let's go point by point to show why you don't need more info, you're just trying to give yourself cover.

    The grandpa stated he now has to "raise" his grandson, suggesting he is at the least under the age of 18.

    Homosexuality is not a sickness or disorder, so the comparison is idiotic. At worst, it's akin it being a geek (in terms of being a mix of nature and nurture creating ones personality and interests/likes) and at best it's akin to being left handed or ginger.

    Next, a phobia is an irration fear OR aversion to something. Kicking out and disowning your child based around their sexual preference is definitely something where a reasonable argument could be made that the individual has an irrational aversion to homosexuality. While I agree the term is over used, that general overuse doesn't excuse your misunderstanding of the meaning nor your attempt to counter specific incidents

    Homophobia is not more "the fear of HOMOS" than arachnophobia is "the fear of ARACHNOS"

    Phobias do not typically use the entire work to create the phobias designation. Homophobia is the irrational fear or aversion of homosexuality just like arachnophobia is the irrational fear or aversion of Arachnids.

    As to the shortening of it, let me give you a political parrelel. Conservative can be shortened to "con", and sometimes people do simply for shortening reason. But when certain people who have shown a disdain for conservatives use it in certain contexts, it appears to be used more for the purpose of disparagement, slurring, and negativity rather than simply to "shorten" the word conservative.

    That has been discussed and dissected in other threads. While my theory cannot be proved, your fellow homosexuals have not been able to definitively disprove it either. In the end, I understand that you and others want your condition to be considered normal, however, a political consensus cannot definitively prove normalcy.

    You are basically claiming that if a negative can't be proven that it's reasonable for you to claim the issue as if it's a fact. This speaks volumes regarding the honesty if any argument you out forth. There is clear consensus within the medical community regarding it being a mental disorder. The very fact that you describe a potential designation as a mental disorder as something hinging upon "political consensus" is both wildly ignorant of mental health work and incredibly enlightening with regards to your agenda and the insincerity in your words.

    What you do is no more factual, reasonable, or accurate than those who ignorantly and hatefully claim being religious is a mental disorder.

    you are free to have that opinion i simply dont see the 2nd wrong unless we assume a bunch, i just going by the story

    the one POSSIBLE wrong i see is i do agree with another post making a feud public is a wrong BUT, i dont consider this public yet simply because no names are given but if names are given anywhere and the dad did it i would agree that is a wrong, but i havent seen that yet

    Until the sexual revolution it was officially a mental disorder.

    You're not homosexual? Then why have you seemed to be taking it so personal and also spaming the board with repeated posts of pro-homosexual propaganda? With that much interests, I just assumed from that evidence that you had a personal stake in the subject, ie. you were yourself a homosexual.
