Her Daughter’s Boyfriend Demanded She Make the House Perfect for His Party, but When He Insulted Her Bisexual Son, She Canceled the Whole Thing

A woman recently asked for some advice after her daughter told her she’d ruined her life by canceling a proposal party. Here’s what happened.

She was on the spectrum

A 25-year-old woman, Jaelinn, was on the autism spectrum. She required care, and her mother was still her legal guardian.

She had a boyfriend

Jaelinn had a boyfriend, James, also 25. He’d lived in their family home for a year, but although Jaelinn’s mother tolerated James, she didn’t really like him.

James was short-tempered

The woman said, “I don’t dislike James, but neither am I a fan. He’s okay most of the time, but sometimes he treats Jaelinn poorly. He’s short-tempered with her; he orders her around too much, and he often speaks to her in a condescending tone.”

He had some unpleasant views

James also had far-right views about pretty much everything. It made him hard to have a conversation with, and the woman couldn’t find much common ground with him.

He didn’t like her son

Although she could deal with most of the issues around James and Jaelinn, there was one problem she couldn’t get past: James’ dislike of her son, Devon.

He was bisexual

James didn’t like Devon for one reason: Devon was bisexual.

James planned to propose

James told the woman that he planned to propose to Jaelinn on Valentine’s Day.

He wanted his family there

To make the day even more special, he wanted his family to be there. Since Jaelinn’s family hadn’t met James’ parents, it seemed like a good idea to get everyone together at last.

It became very difficult

The woman started to organize the event, but James’ demands quickly became overbearing: “Be sure you don’t turn on the television while my parents are here. Don’t serve store-brand chips or soda for snacks. Don’t correct my parents’ grammar.”

Eventually, the woman told James that he was making her angry. She said he seemed to think she was an idiot who’d never had guests before.

The woman assumed James would listen, but she was wrong. “He laughed it off, saying he was just nervous and that he didn’t mean to offend. But he didn’t stop.”

Don’t “act gay”

Then James asked the woman to make sure Devon didn’t act “too gay” in front of his parents. It was the last straw.

She canceled the party

The woman was so enraged by James’ homophobia that she canceled the party on the spot.

Jaelinn found out

What made things even more complicated was that Jaelinn had found out about James’ intention to propose at the party, but now he’d decided not to propose at all.

She said her mother ruined her life

The woman said, “Jaelinn said it was all my fault and that I’d ruined her life.”

Even Devon didn’t agree

After all that, it turned out Devon wasn’t even that bothered and didn’t agree that the comment was worth canceling the party over.

Was she wrong?

Was the woman wrong to cancel the party after James’ nasty remark, or should she have ignored him and continued with her preparations?

The internet responded

One person said, “You did the right thing. Devon deserves to be supported and respected in his home and by his family.”

Another said, “Keep sticking up for Devon and don’t back down. You are doing the right thing.”
