  1. Funny thing is EDD never said which one he thought was the bottom. I wonder if all the angry responses directed towards EDD say something about the respondee's perceptions?

  2. I'm not much of a crier but this video totally touched me. Just beautiful.

  3. @Bart - Kindergarten is the easy part. It's middle school when you're not sure whether they're going to make it or not.

    But totally agree with everything else you said.

  5. Parents who love their children and delight in their lives. We not any different.

  6. They are not gay dads, they are bisexual dads. Their children came from a heterosexual interaction, not a homosexual one.

    Stop warping reality for the sake of gay PC.

  7. To the person complaining and about the nasty comments: let's face it, it's a really nice sweet moment and at the same time that guy is acting like a complete idiot, both of those sentiments can coexist. If he were a straight guy or a woman (straight or gay) I would still say they were acting a little ridiculous.

  10. E@t sh*t, Jason. If this were video of a heterosexual adoptive couple, would you have posted "They're not really grandparents because that's not their kid!" No, so STFU.

  11. @Jason - Where the hell did you get that information?

  12. Can't say that I'd be that excited over being a grandfather....I feel old enough as it is!

  17. I identify with the stoic dad's more low-key reaction, but appreciate the jumping, screaming dad's excitement. Hey, sometimes you just want or NEED somebody to jump up and down and scream "YAY!" and be your biggest cheerleader.

    It's hilarious how the more reserved dad acts like, "Oh lord, here we go again!" and gets out of the way even while smiling over his partner's more... effusive display. It's a good mix of personalities.

    I wonder if their child (the girl?) told his/her partner, "I'm just warning you, he's gonna FLIP!" :-)

  18. Gay marriage support just went from 53% to 49%...

  19. @Matt S and @Luca - right on.

    @RayrayJ - it was obvious who was being more vocal and flamboyant in the video. it's a commonly held stereotype that this type of behavior is linked to being a bottom but obviously that isn't always true. Recognizing a hurtful stereotype for what it is and responding negatively to it says nothing about the "respondee's perceptions" other than showing they have the courage to stand up to bigoted jerks.

    @Edd - that wasn't humor. that was stereotyping at its worst.

  20. Awesome news for this family! I can't wait! Our son is 22 and I know this day will come for us! Corey is still in college, so there is no girl in the picture, but day...

  21. Absolutely beautiful. The love that grandchild will enjoy is really gonna be something. Congrats to this wonderful family. I wish there were more of these videos around. I could watch a channel of this 24/7. I hope all their dreams come true. The man in the white shirt? His joy is contagious- everyone should know someone like that. Filterless joy. Hooray!
