'Homophobic' bride slammed for forcing lesbian sister to bring groomsman as date on wedding
All hell broke loose on Reddit after an anonymous gay woman openly stated that her beloved sister declined an invitation to her girlfriend of two years on her wedding day. The incident got almost 11,000 plus reactions and now is going viral as the bride has been branded ‘homophobic’. What is considered much worse by the Reddit users is that this gay woman was asked by her sister to bring a groomsman as her date.
On Reddit, the anonymous gay woman sought help on the "Am I the A*****e?" topic. She stated, "I'm a lesbian, and I've been with my partner for about two years. My family, including my sister, is all fine with me being gay and supportive of my relationship.” While she stated that her family is supportive of her being a lesbian, what came next made the Reddit users angry. She added, “However, her fiance comes from a very regressive and religious family, and while he himself is fine, his extended family is very traditional and anti-gay. My sister gave me my invitation in person instead of mailing it and explained that I wasn’t getting a plus one because having a gay couple at the wedding would likely end up causing lots of drama with his side of the family.”
People were shocked to know that the lesbian woman was ok to be with a groomsman but then she got to know that all her cousins will be with their hetero partners. The woman also told the users that when she objected, her parents interfered, telling her that she was being "self-centered" and that her sister (bride) has the right to say so as it is her big day. To this, the woman stated on Reddit, "I feel like it's homophobia no matter what my sister and parents say.” The Reddit user's post also received many supportive suggestions to get rid of such a homophobic act.
This has also been receiving attention in the Twitter world where some are supporting this homophobic act while some are against it. One Twitter user tweeted saying, “If a groomsman was gay, would you make him walk with another guy? No.” Another tweet says, “Excepting her to walk with a groomsman and take pictures with him isn’t Homophobic, that normal for the wedding party. Banning her gf and saying the groomsman is her date, it at least a bit homophobic. The sister has every right to be upset.”
