Is it ok to defraud your Father for a free education?

I am a young gay man in college. My father generously pays for my tuition and rent. The problem is that he does not know I am gay. He has made it very clear that if I were, he would not only withdraw all financial support but also cast himself entirely out of my life.

Totally disagree with Amy Bloom. A college education isn’t another version of child support, though it seems today that that’s the expectation. There are a thousand reasons a father wouldn’t pay for a kid’s college, and he has every right to put conditions on it.

This young man is also entitled to live his life as he chooses, just like Dad.

Put on your big boy pants, own your sexuality, and figure out another way to get through college.
