I love Reza.  He is such a sensitive, caring guy.  I'm not gay, am a girl, but I do get how he feels about that issue.  My heart aches for him when he opens up about the pain and fear he has suffered when "coming out".   Don't ever let anyone tell you, Reza, that you are not a good person.  You are one of the best!

Your mother, a very wise and loving woman, knew your proclivities.  Its cute how many of you believe your family doesn't realize.  Her beliefs were confirmed by the fact you kept that magazine until it was raggedy because you know damn well she flipped through that magazine and realized it was just was you needed; an instruction manual.  


She just needed you to confirm her belief but even when we suspect, it can still rock our worlds for varying lengths of time.  Your mom recovered a lot quicker than I did when my brother came out to me though the whole family pretty much suspected he was gay.

@WillnSF I agree it's inexcusable, but I think it is understandable. I'm half-African American, and I've known and heard of Blacks who hate their own race. It happens in every and any group, particularly among those groups who are persecuted. The play/movie A Soldier's Story is about this very phenomenon. I think it's remarkable that Reza retreated from his discriminatory hostility so quickly, not because of the press, but because it seems clear it is contradictory to his basic perspective on his sexual orientation. He is definitely elitist, but that's usually just masking insecurities ... which, unfortunately, often accompanies having been persecuted. Again, not excusable ... But understandable and forgivable when someone honestly reflects on the origins of their hatred and attempts to resolve them, More power to you, Reza - as long as you own what you did which you seem to be doing. I know it's your schtick, but it would help you feel authentic if you stop being so critical of people in general who don't or can't live your extravagant lifestyle. Sometimes, people "recycle," Dude, because it is how they are making it right now.

unforgiveable.

 

it's not just persian gays who've have a difficult time. Mormons, Ugandans, Cherokee...you name it. It's not automatically easy just because one's not Persian. In any event, your actions are inexcusable.
