The man’s younger sister is a lesbian, which their family does not support or accept. When she came out, she grew distant from her family and only started talking to everyone again when they discovered her father was dying.

Relations among the family were rocky until they recently decided to have a big get-together at their parents’ house ahead of a planned barbeque.

They decided not to argue

The man’s father told the family that, at least until he had passed away, they should put all of their bickering and drama to one side. If any of them had a problem with any other, it could wait. This was something that everybody in the family agreed to, including the man’s sister, so everyone expected the barbeque to be a nice day.

The man’s parents told their daughter they wanted to meet her girlfriend, insisting she brought her to the occasion. Everyone in the family was excited to meet her.

“My sister’s girlfriend seemed like a nice girl, but she was very standoffish,” he said. “She kept to herself and didn’t speak much to my parents and me. For the most part, she was glued to my sister.”

The party was a little bit awkward

Due to the way that his sister’s girlfriend was acting, it caused moments of awkward silence throughout the day. Because of this, the man started talking to the couple about their relationship, asking how they had met and how long they had been together.

He joked with his sister’s girlfriend

He also joked around with her, telling her what he would do if she ever hurt his sister, which was done in complete jest.

His parents started acting weird

The man noticed that his parents acted stranger and stranger with each question he asked. He eventually asked his mother what was wrong, and she said that her daughter’s relationship was not right.

The man could tell that his sister and her girlfriend were uncomfortable, and his father was trying to calm his mother down. His sister spoke up and asked her parents why they invited them if they wouldn’t be okay seeing them together.

Their mother got upset

Her response caused their mother to get angry, as she felt her daughter was being disrespectful. After her outburst, his sister began crying and hyperventilating, at which point her girlfriend tried to calm her down.

Their mother told his sister that she needed to leave if she was acting like a child and being dramatic, as she was upsetting her father. Before his sister could reply, her girlfriend grabbed their belongings, and they returned to their car.

“They thought she was putting on a show in front of her girlfriend to make them look bad,” he said. “They proceeded to say that they’re allowed to be uncomfortable and feel differently than her.”

He defended his sister

The man explained to his parents that his sister loved who she loved. Nobody had to agree with it, but everyone should still love her. He has also tried to speak to his sister, but she felt he defended their parents far too much.

He told her their parents didn’t have to agree with her relationship. They should, but they don’t have to. In response, his sister called him a jerk for expecting her to pretend to be somebody else simply because their dad was dying.

He asked the internet for advice

One person said, “You all insisted on having this barbeque, saying there would be no drama and bickering, and wanted your sister to bring her girlfriend.”

Someone else said, “Did it ever occur to you that maybe your sister told her gf that your parents don’t like that she’s gay?”
