Woman tells gay son, ‘Pray to be straight’

“Pray to be straight.”

Von Erik took to Twitter to share his mom’s continued denial of his ‘real’ gender identity.

In his tweet, Von narrated that his mother was driving him to work when he asked her again on her thoughts about him being gay.

His mom replied, “Pray to be straight.”

Von added that his mom also told him that he’s “not normal.”

“The most painful thing happened to me… This year couldn’t get any worse,” he said.

Von noted that this was the second time he talked to his mom about his sexuality.

He said he already came out to his mom 15 years ago.

“I just wanted to know to her thoughts (now). Nothing’s changed pala after all these years,” he said.

“Hirap maging kauri natin. Constant struggle kahit sa sariling bahay,” he added.

Many netizens commented positively and gave Von comforting words.

Here’s what they wrote:

“Laban. The love around you is enough to carry on.👍”

“Ohmyyym. Paps, be strong ✊🙏”

“Beh, when i came out, sabi ng mom ko sana sinabi ko daw ng maaga para nagawan ng paraan. Inintindi ko na lang, and now, i feel na tanggap naman na nya. In their own time…. Hugs for us. 😘”

“She’s from a different generation, and it’s not that easy to change their mindset. But rest assured that it will get better. HUGS!”

“Awww. Sending hugss.”
