Dad’s Emotional Video Of Finally Accepting His Daughter As A Lesbian Is What Unconditional Love Feels Like
Taiwan is almost on the verge of becoming the first Asian country to legalize same-sex marriage. It would be a significant move, making Taiwan the second in the Asia Pacific region, after New Zealand in 2013. And while the country is swirling in a revolution, Home Is Love, a Taiwanese group that promotes marriage equality, came up with a heartwarming video of a dad, finally coming to terms with his oldest daughter being a lesbian.
It is easy for our generation to demand equal rights and more than that an understanding from our parents to look in the same liberating direction, we are looking at. However, the social conditioning they are brought up with, makes it a little difficult for them to tune into our perspective. But, many times, we underestimate the power of love when it comes to our parents. Given a chance, eventually, they can see through our unhappiness and drive away their logics and reasons, to accept us as who we are.
This video features a family, found through a facebook group, where a 65-year-old father talks about accepting his daughter as a lesbian.
In the start, the father of two daughters and a son, fights his doubt, something that every parent would go through, finding out their child’s sexuality. The father, initially expresses his shock and bewilderment, of how his daughter could have been a lesbian? He accepts that homosexuality is a concept so distant to them, that is is simply unfathomable for them to consider the situation in their own family.
At the same time, he understands that they being unhappy was one thing, but their daughter was unhappier than them.
In the quest of understanding his daughter and her position, he had questions and doubts, and a will to find an answer to them. He started researching and reading on the issue, regardless of the information he got hold of.
And now when his daughter and son are married, he is most worried about his eldest daughter.
His eldest daughter is in a very stable relationship with her partner and they also have a daughter now, and it makes him very happy.
He finally realizes that even though he has read a lot and attended so many classes while growing up, there is only one simple answer to everything, love and acceptance. And that is exactly what the world needs right now.
