A gay man outraged Redditors when he kicked his brother to the street for insulting his husband. Seems no good deed goes unpunished! Here is the full story.
They’re a Happy Couple
OP is a 34-year-old man who is married to a 35-year-old man. They have been together for several years.
He Didn’t Want to Tell Them
But OP grew up in a very bigoted family, and he always feared what their reaction would be when they finally found out he was gay.
Grandpa to the Rescue!
When he was in his 20s, though, OP’s grandfather died and left him a big chunk of money. It was enough for a new start.
He Finally Came Out
So OP made a down payment on a house in another county and moved away.
Just before he left, he told his parents and brother that he was gay.
It Was Worse Than He Feared
As OP had feared, his family exploded. They said he was going to rot for eternity, and they completely disowned him.
He Left Them Behind
Since then, OP has had almost no contact with his family, and he’s happily moved on with his life and his loving husband.
Big Bro Wanted to Apologize
Recently, though, OP’s 38-year-old brother contacted him to apologize for the way he had treated him when he came out.
They Were on the Streets
But OP’s brother also wanted something. He had lost his job, and he was about to be homeless, along with his wife and 2 kids.
They Needed a Crash Pad
The brother asked OP if the family could stay with him for a few months until they got back on their feet.
He Wanted to Help
OP wanted no part of it, but his husband thought they should help out.
He didn’t want the kids to be homeless and thought that maybe the brother had really changed.
He Had Conditions
So OP agreed to give it a try on the condition that his brother could never mention politics and never disrespect OP’s husband.
He Had No Patience
It would be a zero-tolerance policy. If OP’s brother messed up even one time, his whole crew would be on the street.
They Were Grateful
OP’s brother quickly agreed to those terms, and he and his family moved in.
He Was in Tears
Everything was fine for the first few weeks, but then OP’s husband called in tears one day while OP was at work.
It Was a Blow-Up
OP’s husband had told the brother to clean up after his kids because they were making a mess all over the house.
The two men started arguing, and it got pretty ugly.
His True Colors Shined Through
The fight ended with OP’s brother saying he didn’t want a “f**” telling him what to do, using a vulgar term for a gay man.
He Booted Them
OP was furious and got in his brother’s face as soon as he got home.
OP told his sibling that he and his family had two days to move out.
He Turned It on Them
The brother claimed OP’s husband was lying and said OP was a terrible person for kicking young kids to the curb.
They Finally Left
The two men argued for a while longer, but it took OP threatening to call the police before his brother started packing.
On his way out the door, OP gave him the address of a homeless shelter.
They’re All Against Him
Now, OP’s brother is hounding him to let his family come back.
And some of OP’s cousins from other parts of the country have turned on him and say he’s awful for mistreating the kids.
He Can’t Risk It
OP does feel bad for his brother’s kids, but he can’t risk hurting his husband again.
Redditors overwhelmingly support OP and his stance against his brother. They think it’s really unfair to use the kids as a weapon, especially when the brother caused all the problems.
Some commenters warn OP that he should probably change his locks right away so that his brother doesn’t just show up inside some day.
