When I came out to my dad 20 years ago, he told me the idea of two men being intimate disgusted him.

Here's what happened next. #FathersDay 🧵 👇
By 18, our relationship was...strained. As a kid, I preferred Baby-Sitters Club books to basketball. I was (and still am) a sensitive person—a stray comment could swerve into screaming, sobbing, and the silent treatment.
My dad had a walk-it-off mentality when it came to my problems. Bullying? Insecurities? Suck it up and stop crying—sympathy is for the weak. (Typical Dad stuff.)

The rules I was raised with that I’m trying to pass on.
1. Humans are more important than Hardware.
2. Quality is better than Quantity.
3. Special things (especially people) cannot be mass produced.
4. Competence under stress cannot be created after emergencies occur.
5. You can’t do everything alone. It’s not bad to need help or ask for it.
6. Know how to shake a hand. Never do it sitting down, grip firmly and look them in the eye.
7. Learn how to cook.
8. Spend 30 min a day reading up on current events but know you aren’t an expert.
9. Request the late check.
10. Be a man of your word. Make a promise keep it.
11. Hold your heroes to a higher standard.
12. Return a borrowed car with a full tank of gas.
13. Whatever you do, do it with passion or don’t do it at all.

@GOP @GOPChairwoman @realDonaldTrump you guys all want a #greateconomy and to be the party of jobs then do the right thing. Why would you let extended unemployment benefits lapse? You know that causes a #housing crisis. You dont want to fund testing either? That causes cases to
surge. It causes citizens unable to work. It causes children unable to go to school. But you want to cut off #testing for #Covid_19 #CoronaVirusUpdate . You know all of your actions and inactions make things worse not #MAGA. If you wonder why poll numbers are in the tank its bc
people know what youre doing to them. It seems like you all have abandoned America. Youve abandoned #HealthcareHeroes. Youve abandoned our nations #children . Youve abandoned our #nursinghomes. Youve abandoned #mothers and #fathers. Youve abandoned looking out for #Americans. You

Happy Father's Day, it was a long one. 

Today was a wonderful day for Father's Day. It was also the longest day of the year thanks to the Summer Solstice.

#FathersDay
We had great weather here in the 1st District and I'm truly hoping all the dads enjoyed it. No matter how you became a father, you have a hard job, being a dad.

Keep doing what you do and enjoy every day. We are living in a very different way this year, so relax with the extra time you have.
