Great idea, though I note that Isaac is not accepting of his father, and hasn't spoken to him for 3 years. His father is devastated and has tried to connect with Issac over and over, only to be rejected and belittled by him.

Perhaps he should get his own life in order, Practice what you preach and reach out to you father and be accepting of him.

IT would show you've reached a level of maturity, and we the public, can take this type of initiative as having a level of credibility.

Its bizare that thesr kids want to support gender neutral initiatives and all sorts of acceptance, but from what we see wont accept their own family.

Issac no families are perfect, but you only have 1 and im sure they will support you.

Isaac if this is true, lead by example and accept everyone for who they are.

"though I note that Isaac is not accepting of his father"

For what reason? Hypothetically, if his father has done something unforgivable to him, thats a little bit different than the message Isaac is trying to get across.

Being accepting of everyone is a great initiative. If isaacs father is different then he should be accepted however if he has done something unforgivable then the dad needs to ostracized and then wiped.

"Unforgivable" Wow. He must be a bad, immoral, criminal thug.

Otherwise unconditional acceptance. That the moral of "inside out" isnt it

No it actually isn't, John. The premise is, don't discriminate just because someone is different. If Isaac has ostracised his father because of a specific incident, that is not discrimination.

Its really not that hard to work out the difference.

acceptance doesn't mean you have to maintain contact with someone.

After a very long day Ive been notified about these posts on hoops and I want it stopped or at least clarified. I am Isaac's Father. Brad.

Who ever is contributing to the fact that Isaac and I dont talk any longer Im grateful of your interest whoever you are because you obviously care and have known our family a long time and I am very thankful , very grateful.

For the record this reply is a once only reply. To Many of my close friends its clear Isaac and I dont talk evidently we avoid discussion about Isaac.To put this to an end I have loved all 3 of my kids Sam ,Claud and Isaac and contributed significantly along the way for all 3 of them . Enough said.

I wish Isaac the best in his life as do I all of my children. . HaHa Im not an axe murderer or a child beater as someone proposed , in fact I can share that Isaac was extremely loved as an infant and his big brother always wanted to SORT OUT THE bully's and I was somewhat defenseless as an adult , but his big brother Sam kept his eye on things when he could.
EG Inside Out campaign)

I applaud Isaac's INSIDE OUT CAMPAIGN and wish it the best. I too was a bully victim as Isaac will recall when I was young.

Once again thank you to whom ever is posting re Isaac but by all accounts I wish the best for him and hope certain things manifest for the better for ALL of us together in the future>

Absolutely the individual's prerogative as to whether or not they maintain contact though. Presumably they've made their decision based on something that's been said or done and not anything pertaining to race, sexuality, etc. Irrelevant to the Inside Out thing.

Not forgiving someone is like drinking poison and expecting the other person to die.

You are only doing yourself harm and most often to other person is not even aware of your feelings. Grudges have no positive attributes and no benefits in any area of our lives.

What grudge-holders don't always understand is how much strain on themselves holding a grudge causes. It takes a significant amount of mental and emotional energy to keep the steady stream of hostility and aggression (or passive-aggression) that supports a grudge. This kind of cognitive-emotional process is commonly seen in people who aren’t able to 'let go’ of, or resolve issues that present in relationships....What ends up generally happening is, the grudge-holders focus so intensely on negativity that it disables their ability to let go of the situation. This causes a vicious cycle: negativity causes more anger, and more anger causes more negativity.

Fuq...Nothing should be unforgivable.

Most ridiculous statement I've read here for a while... Plenty of things can be unforgivable... I won't list the first ones that come to mind in case someone misinterprets that as me suggesting that it happened with Isaac and his Dad...


Not forgiving someone is like drinking poison and expecting the other person to die.

Bollocks... I appreciate the thought behind the larger statement that followed this one (not including teh one that made assumptions about people holding grudges), and what you say is true, if that is in deed the case here, as there is a BIG difference between not forgiving someone for something and holding onto a grudge...

Someone does something so bad, they're written off... You don't have to hold onto anything, you don't have to actively think about them again, you can indeed move on without forgiving them...

Accepting relates to all parents. If a young couple decide to have a baby you need to support them no matter what! Am.i right?
