Woman Breaks Up With Husband Who Kicked Out Their Gay Son & We STAN

The LGBTQ+ ally recounted the entire experience on Reddit!

For those of us lucky enough to have them as a supportive presence in our lives, accepting moms can often be the first true ally for many LGBTQ+ people. They know a lot more about us and our identities than we think, and they support us no matter what. Such was the case for one closeted queer kid who, after coming out to his homophobic father, was blessed enough to have his mom come to his rescue. 

In an extremely viral Reddit post by now-deleted user CountryMommaLynn, Lynn shares the emotional story of how her 15-year-old son came out as gay to her soon-to-be-ex-husband Mark, and how after Mark kicked him out of the house she owns and pays for, she broke things off with him immediately. 

"I gave that bastard a piece of my mind and told him that if he can't be a man and support his son then he can kiss my ass and find someone else to pay his bills," Lynn recalled in a screenshot of the Reddit post that was posted to Twitter by user @henrythefiend. (The viral tweet had over 365,000+ likes and nearly 91,000 retweets at the time of writing.)

As if the idea of a supportive AF mom kicking out her homophobe of a husband wasn't enough of an amazing story, Lynn provided a couple of updates that make us stan her harder than we already did. Firstly, she's really, really excited to meet her son's boyfriend (we love to see it!!!), and secondly, after her husband begged her to let him stay, she had the best, most epic response ever. 

"...he started crying like a baby begging me to let him stay and saying 'you'll never find another man like me' and I told him that is the whole point of me leaving him," Lynn recalled in a follow-up post. "So he finally left after hours crying like a bitch and now my son and I have lots of extra space!"

QUEEN BEHAVIOR!

Of course, we weren't the only ones stanning Lynn's instantly iconic allyship.

Dear Parents of LGBTQ+ kids...BE MORE LIKE LYNN.
