My message to him is...LEAVE!! Just give them the finger and walk out. Nobody is forcing you to be there.
Get some balls bud. If you want people to respect you, you've got to respect yourself.
i think that this is easy for us to see from this side of coming out. I recall how hard it was for me to do anything, take any action that might actually help myself when I was in the closet.
I agree with you Rick, he is an adult, he has the power to walk away from this. I'm also willing to think that he is in an emotional state right now that prevents him from seeing his ability to do that. Families can create some unbelievable emotional blackmail.
