Coming out can be extremely hard. This is a very moving video of how two twins came out to their father.

That was cute. That seems like two very good sons and one very good father. I'm glad I've seen it.

I'm not watching this, and if I were to, I wouldn't believe it to be true.

I don't trust reality television, publicity stunts, or celebrities.

When my nephew, who I love dearly, came out about being gay my sister took it well, but my brother in law literally cried and wouldn't talk to him for a few months. I felt horrible for my nephew. He's okay now and lives with his life partner who is an awesome guy, but it was difficult for him in the beginning because of his father. It upsets me because he avoids when our family gets together now. Some scars never completely heal.

If one of my children comes to me and tells me they are gay I will still love them with everything I am and welcome whoever they find worthy of love into my home and our family. I see nothing wrong with someone being gay as long as they find happiness and love. And they do, which is what life is all about anyway.

The dad in this video took it very well. I wonder if it was staged. Even so, I think heterosexual dad's don't take it as well as mothers do when their children come out. That's just my experience with friends and family, and only my opinion. I might be wrong.

The Fool: I'm not saying that it's wrong, or that it was fake per se, but that it's being used to boost their YouTube subscriptions and views. They are making money off of this...and all the power to them, but if I was there father I would've rather they told me in private, off-camera.. It's not the most considerable way of doing it.

Just saying...

Thanks for sharing! I really admire your attitude, and I hope your nephew and his father are able to find a healthy place.

About the fathers, yeah, it does seem like that doesn't it?

Personally, I don't think this was staged. It felt real to me. That long, awkward pause before the reveal.... that seemed real, and I don't think that would have happened otherwise. It was really sweet that they did so together; it seemed like they gave each other courage.

They still might have asked his permission before releasing the video; I don't think it was streamed.

kbub: They still might have asked his permission before releasing the video; I don't think it was streamed.

The Fool: I accounted for that, and made specific reference to the camera, rather than it being online. In other words, the very fact that they were recording him without his knowledge and had already planned on using it online to bolster their numbers, takes away from some of the sincerity, and consideration on the part of the father..

What if it wouldn't have went so well? It would be a sort of blackmail or to harm him.. Something to be hung over his head, and dragged around forever.. It would probably end up online anyways, as they would probably not be talking.. So in a way, the father had no "real" choice the matter..

I highly, highly doubt it. There are very, very few examples of incest between identical twins.

I saw the vid before and there were times where I saw them looking at each other funnily... but my imagination could've taken commando.

They are cute. Like a 7.5/10...

The video was powerful too...I wasn't just interested in their looks...for the record.
