I’m From Sugar City, ID.

I love you, but…
You can be anything you want to be, but…
You’re my brother, but…
You have such potential, but…

…But if you’re gay, well that’s a different story.  Sick-o, pervert, Nancy-boy, one of Satan’s minions. Do you want that? Do you want everyone to HATE you? Do you want me to cut off your little penis and put a bow in your hair?  I love you, but…

…But if you’re gay you’ll end up being what, a hairdresser?  Oh, you want to be an actor.  Well, actors are nothing but a bunch of queers!  Do you want some homo raping you on his casting couch?  Look at those prancing queens up on that stage!  I’ll bet they all do sick things to each other. You can be anything you want to be, but…

…But if you’re gay I really don’t want you around my kids. They loved you so much, you know. What happened? Didn’t you have the cutest girlfriend in high school? Who did this to you? Well, I’m not going to allow you to brainwash my boys into believing you’re perfectly normal. You’re my brother, but…

…But if you’re gay you’ve done nothing but squander everything God has given you.  You have the most beautiful voice.  You meet people so well – like you’ve known them your whole life.  You’ve got so much more than most people – a well-respected family, money, opportunity.  You have such potential, but…

But NOTHING!  I love you simply for who you are – my parent, my little league coach, my neighbor, my brother, sister, my best friend.  It doesn’t matter how much money you have, how good looking or talented you may or may not be – I love you…unconditionally, but…

But…if you can’t love me in return, I will find others who will.  I will leave my town whether large or small, I will leave my state, I will even abandon my country if it means I will find love and acceptance for all of who I am.  And I will continue to love you from afar.

  1. Creative structure, and powerful message: Love us or leave us.

  2. Aw, I love this one. Too many people have had these conversations.

  3. As a fellow Idahoan, I can relate so well to this. I give you props for leaving them, but still loving them. That’s all you can really do.

  4. This is one of my favorites! Very well written and close to home!
