The Fallen Boy


GREEN

125 views

The gossip factor is thick at the family reunion. My cousins are swooning over Chaz and I'm dying to leave this god forsaken reunion. I can kill my aunt for asking me to come. Hence why she's avoiding me like I have some some disease. It's very clear that some of my family members do not agree with what they call, "That Lifestyle." My uncle pulls me aside and ask me if my get this, Choice Was Worth it. To which I reply, "Yes I'm sure I picked the right one, did you? Because you and your seemingly over weight wife have been having problems. Why don't you try a guy?" He doesn't flinch and I walk away where I overhear one of my cousins using the F word, I want to kill that little drug addict in the making but I don't and I head towards the liquor.

 

One of my aunts is standing there and hands me a cup of of something I never want to re experience. ""Hi Green," she says. I say hello and quickly try to walk away as this is the aunt that could milk a stone for gossip. "Wait a minute I want to talk to you," She says grabbing my arm.

 

"What about?" I ask when the cousin that uttered the immortal f word comes to the table and pushes me.

 

"What did you call my mother?" he asks. My cousin is really drunk and a bit unstable.

 

"I called her obese, fat, Overweight!" I yell. He swings at me and hits me across the face. Apparently he's too drunk to put power behind it and the punch just barely grases my cheek when I pull my head back. I'm already pissed and I'm not one to back down from a fight so I swing back connecting with his eye. Then I swing again getting the other eye. I watch him fall when his father comes at me from out of nowhere. At. this point It's a brawl. He hits me hard across the head and my vision blurs a bit, but I get my chance when he misses his next shot and I punch him in the gut then I get his face and he goes down taking me down with him. I hit him a couple of times and he gets me in the nose before I'm pulled away. Chaz is holding my cousin who apparently wanted some more of me.

 

My other uncle holds back the uncle that hit me. Then he says something that just curdles my blood. "You and your father are both f**king faggots," he says and I punch him square in the nose. I was told later on that I broke it. I don't exactly have a relationship with my father and I hate being compared to him.

 

Needless to say I rented a car that same evening and I left. Chaz watched me with a concerned eye. I'm sure he was wondering where I learned to fight.

Green,

 

All I can say is HUGS to you and for you.....It is like reading Kitty's blog too. The "N" word and the "F" word. I have heard them more times then I care to in my family. I did what you did. Scream and tell them utter those words again and say goodbye to me. Luckily, it never got to fisticuffs, but lots of silence (I didn't speak to one sister for a year, who kept telling me to get over being Gay. I told her did she plan on "getting over" being a woman? When I told her she could no longer change being whom she is (ok, ignore the sex change operation thing..you all know what I mean), then how can I get over the fact that genetically, I am a Gay man...(this from the sister who has tons of Gay friends, lives in NYC, has a Gay attorney etc.) Took us a while but she has gotten to be more accepting.....

 

I have reminded bigoted family members that I am Gay, deal or don't deal, but I don't have to put up with their bigotry and if they want me around, I will call them on it or leave....(It has slowly worked)

 

I give you a lot of credit and I am glad you had Chaz with you (at least he and you are sane).....I often bring friends to family events for moral support and I for one am glad you brought Chaz.

 

Just remember in the morning you will be Gay, happy and enlightened. Bigotry is ugly through and through. We can pray for them and hope they change their evil ways.....Now, one and all, scream, I am Gay and Proud and thank God Almighty!!

 

Hugs and then some sent your way Green and to Chaz too:)

Green,

 

Now you know that violence never solved anything and that you should turn the other cheek. Yeah right. High fives for kicking some serious ass. Way to go!!!!

 

I wonder...did they think you were an easy target because you are gay? It's amazing to me that some people still feel that way. Most of the gay guys I know are so buff they are the last guys I'd want to f**k around with....er....I mean get in a fight with.

 

Allow me to be patronizing and say I'm proud of you.

I'm glad you put them in their place, ok i don't know if namecalling was the best move (rearding the fat wife) but the Uncle started it and need a broken nose... I won't make the comments, but we all know what a lot of jack heads think when it comes to the weakness of gay guys...

 

So once again good for you, who cares if the first dork was drunk the Uncle yeah... :great:

 

Oh wow where did that come from?!? :blink:
