Today I was talking to my shock jock radio host uncle about being AB. For a while he seemed very against AB but as of today's conversation, while his views may not be changing completely, when I'm involved he seems to not want to say so many bad things, because I think he's starting to accept it as part of me (although he still thinks others are brainwashing me - I apologize if that seems contradictory, I'm not intending it to be, but it only proves that it's my feelings he doesn't want to hurt - the rest of the community may be a totally different matter in his view).
Anyway, again he has brought up whether I will allow him to discuss the topic on the radio. He says that one day I should be able to laugh at myself. I told him I can but only with accepting people, and I reminded him there are far more people who don't accept it than who do, and in past conversations he has acted as part of the majority that doesn't.
My uncle wants to make AB a topic to laugh at one week. I expressed obvious concern for my public image, but he has promised not to feature me on the show. This is the one time I'd pass on the opportunity to be a guest on the show!
He says that all he really wants to do is laugh at AB just like people laugh at being gay or fat or whatever. This is giving me hope that he won't totally bash us...but I told him I'd have to discuss it with you guys first. So...what do you guys think? Should I let him do it?
