Does anyone else think this is awful?

I just want to say that this is basically just a rant about something bad that has happened to someone I know recently. If that doesn't tickle your fancy, don't bother to continue reading...

Chapter 1

How dare he! >=O

Okay, so here's the deal... My uncle is gay and I have known for years and it has never really bothered me, even when I was very young. He is married to a woman, but only because they are best friends and not because they love each other in 'that' kind of way. He had a boyfriend about 5 years ago, but I never know what happened to him since I haven't seen him since and he hasn't talked about him since then.

But anyway, getting to the point... I met my uncle, two of my aunts, grandparents and some family friends yesterday because my grandparents wanted us all to get together after we all couldn't see each other over the holidays. Now, everything seemed fine for about an hour, we were all talking and getting along, until one of the family 'friends' (the friend of my grandpa) told of his hate for gay people, and of course my uncle was present.

I don't know if he knew my uncle was gay or not, but I kinda guessed he probably did because he kept looking at him and sorta glaring. And of course my uncle was upset about it, but none of us really seemed to stand up to him about it, except me and my mother. We had an argument for about 20 minutes until he finally decided to leave. The atmosphere wasn't so happy after that and no one really spoke much and we all just decided to leave about 15 minutes after it had all happened.

I am not going to tell you exactly how the argument went because it did get pretty brutal verbally, but I can tell you that the 'friend' seemed to realise he was in the wrong after a while which is why he got more angry and eventually decided to just leave before his dignity was battered any more.

I have never liked anyone who hates someone else for no reason, people who hate others because they are black, gay, 'ugly', 'fat' or 'different' have always been looked down upon by me severely. Now, if my uncle had abused the 'friend' physically or something, I would understand, but my uncle had done nothing wrong.

Now anyhow, this has all basically just been a rant because I wanted to get it off my chest and I thought writing it down on some quiz site for others to read might help, lol.
Feel free to comment, but you don't have to if you don't feel like you have anything to say. Like the title says, I would like to know if anyone else thinks this is awful, but it is honestly very awful in my own opinion and that is all that really matters to me, so I don't care much whether you want to tell me how awful it is or not, lol.
