So, Sohail‘s Mom gave her gay son a unicorn mirror (as Moms do) and when Mom wanted to make a replica of the mirror for his jealous sister, SoHail didn’t send her pics fast enough. Mom, who apparently is NOT a big fan of his social media presence, went to his Instagram anyway to find pics. Sohail wrote in a tweet,
“This is the result of me not getting back to her quick enough.”
“I was forced to use the only photos of the mirror I could find which were your gd smut photos because the carpenter needed references before he accepted our offer to recreate the mirror and guess what. HE ASKED IF PART OF HIS PAYMENT CAN BE THE MAN IN THE PHOTOS. THE GAYS ARE EVERYWHERE!!!”
To which Sohail replied,
“MAMA, OUR TALENTS DO NOT DISCRIMINATE PROFESSIONS! Tell the woodworker I said howdy.”
The woodworker accepted the job, but his mom appears to be staying in between the the two meeting. But Sohail told BuzzFeed News that his parents are very supportive.
“I’ve never taken their acceptance, warmth, love, and sass for granted, because I am well aware of many members of our greater queer community may struggle to navigate their personal expression of queerness on a platform their parents may have access to, let alone possibly not having direct access to those four things listed above.
Being a person of colour who was born into a set of ideologies that were in direct conflict with my personhood, it would be foolish to not allow my parents to ‘struggle’ with allowing their son to be who he is — because, they’re human, and allowing a human to process is part of the journey of meaning-making.
While it may have seemed counter at times, my parents have allowed me to process my queerness with me, and not at me. They’ve held my heart. They’ve made me contemplate representation.”
Yes, love is love. But, Mom, you’d better set those two up, this is fate!
Soooo my mom & dad are commissioning a recreation of the unicorn mirror they bought me from an estate sale because my sister is jealous she didn’t get one as well, & this is the result of me not getting back to her quick enough… pic.twitter.com/9AbFy8Sp8o
