Got a feeling that was a bad joke. He was trolling craigslist right?

How terrible. But I'm not surprised. People have done far worse to their gay kids.

I'd be incredibly surprised if this is genuine.

It's 'surprising' that some think this may be real.

This is the least of things people have done to their gay kids. This is nothing, believe me.

Yes, but that doesn't make this true. It's a superfluous statement made on a website that frequently contains lies/scams/jokes. I call fake.

Google search:

craigslist "homosexual acts" "macbook pro"

The first link listed on the Google results matches and gives the following link, which is now pulled:

http://losangeles.craigslist.org/wst...071739987.html

This is my favorite fake craigslist ad:

I'd expect this to be from the south or bible belt. Not Culver City. He must hate when he has to drive through West Hollywood...

First off it states that he is going to be buying one of the new laptops that coming out. There is no longer a Macbook, it was replaced by a 11" MacAir.

Second this is got to be a joke or a very sick father. I think it's a fake because what he adds on the bottom telling us his life story, Most people would stay clear of this guy, unless they are homophobic and see this has a good thing. If I was the kid I'll put on the act of being straight for mommy and daddy, but do what I was doing more privately. (Not sure where I am going with that last line there.)

Yeah, I'd say it's a fake as well...

If I were the father and that ashamed of my gay son that I'd bribe him to become straight, I'm pretty sure I wouldn't be posting that fact online for the whole world to see...

If "abstaining" from being a homosexual gets you a Macbook Pro, I'd have faked a fondness for dressing in drag..

Actually, the bands he listed are not only close to metal, they are currently at the forefront of metal.

Culver City was where they used to film Dallas. Is this what became of Sue Ellen?
