For as long as many of us can remember there was one consistent rule for a girl's sleepover: No boys allowed. But does that rule change if your daughter's best friend is a gay man?
Gay teenager Mason Barclay thinks there should definitely be a rule change.
So he decided to text his BFF Houston's mom directly to make a case for himself.
He wrote, "Hey Mrs Shelton! This is Mason Brian Barclay, I am one of Houston’s new best friends. If she had people over on Friday, would I, a very homosexual male, be able to take part in the sleepover? I think the common meaning behind only allowing the same sex to share sleepovers is due to the typical interest in the opposite sex, when in this case, I do not like the opposite sex."
He did make a pretty solid case to us, and Mason even ended his request with a very polite, "Thank you for your time and consideration, have a great night. Amen."
But Houston's mom still had one concern...
She replied, "Hmm. Well, my husband is hot," she wrote. "Should I worry?"
Mason LOVED this reply as did the rest of us!
In the end, Mason's argument worked and he was invited to the sleepover.
