So, growing up, my parent's taught my brother and I to be polite. And now, we are a couple of the most well mannered people I know. Which makes it hard when you are trying to tell people to stop being a jerkhole.
My parent's siblings didn't raise their children the same way. One of my cousins is the worst. And since my brother came out about 4 years ago. He is the biggest bully I have ever met. And my brother won't stand up to him. And because he is family, he seems that he was always around. They went into the Navy around the same time, at first they were on different bases but then my brother was transferred to Charleston. So, they are now on the same base.
My brother is fairly open about his lifestyle choice. But our cousin sometimes stops by my brother's clinic (he is a lab tech) just to taunt him. He has stayed there for 2 hours at a time just to make fun of him.
Anyways. My brother is gay. And my cousin is a homophobic jerk who is a higher pay status to my brother. Now he can't stand up to him, because technically he is my brother's superior.
He is just an insensitive person. Last night he posted "I don't why gay people hate chick-fil-a "Eat more Chicken" can easily translate to "eat more *". Just sayin lol"
And I finally had it. So, I said he wasn't funny. and he replied with something stupid. I personally feel like him is over compensating. But being the "nice" person that I am , I would feel bad for saying how I really feel about him. Mostly cause he is family. After he made that retort though I thought of a really good comeback but I had already deleted him. I just needed to vent because I don't want to be one of those people that screams at the world through their facebook. Especially if that person can't see it. Plus if I were to say what I really wanted to say, I would feel bad if something were to happen, because he has expressed thoughts of suicide.
I want so badly to be mean and stand up to this person that is related to me.. Does anyone else have family issues that they have to deal with? How do you deal with that person/people?
Thanks for letting me vent!
