Brenden Posted July 19, 2021 Share Posted July 19, 2021 I'm sure you have some family you would deem to be quite offensive and rude. Maybe even has some hate in their bones. How do you deal with a family member who is offensive and possibly racist? I try not to socialize with any family that is racist or has bad opinions or happens to be hateful in general. How do you deal with family like this? I have a gay cousin, and our aunt is against the idea of it, as she's really religious. My cousin came out to the family a few years ago, and she just scoffed at him for it, saying it was a "phase" that he "better get out of soon". She then went to her room for the night, no one said much to her when she left the morning after. Anyway, she still goes on about it, even after my cousin announced he was getting married to his boyfriend of 5 years. I was finally fed up with it, and told her to F off. And told her that this wasn't her life to dictate, and that she should worry about her own damn life and stop worrying about others. She shut up for a bit after that, but went to her room mumbling something. idk, maybe sometimes it's just best to ignore them, or just flat out tell them to shut up, because maybe they need exactly that sometimes.
