Australian Man Meets His Own Headless Dad on Grindr

Closets can be oppressive, stylish or incriminating. For Jacob, they are all of the above.

One day, he was innocently scrolling through Grindr looking for daddies. Be careful what you wish for, Jacob!

Suddenly, the picture of a walk-in passageway caught his eye. “I thought that looks sort of like my parents house,” Jacob tells The Kyle and Jackie O Show.

Oh, did we mention that the closet picture also featured a vaguely familiar torso?

“I clicked through the profile to see if it could be my dad,” recounts Jacob.

Tiptoeing through taboo territory, the young Aussie decided to sleuth the situation without accidentally soliciting pictures of the very organ that gave him life.

“I asked for a picture of his face,” Jacob continues. “When he sent it through it was my dad.”

Dadjà vu!

Now, the optimists out there are probably pondering a few points:

  • Now the father and son can bond over yet another thing they have in common.
  • This will be a funny story they can tell their gay grandkids!
  • Mercifully, no dong pics were exchanged.

Unfortunately, we’re about to sour your cheery disposition with a bracing dose of hypocrisy.

See, Jacob’s headless dad is also heartless.

“He was super against it when I was coming out – he hated me – he was super angry and didn’t want anything to do with me in his life.”

Let’s stretch the silver lining to its breaking point and consider the thought that maybe Jacob’s father regrets how he treated his son. Perhaps he became enlightened in his advanced years and embraced his own orientation?

Wrong again. It’s a bad day for optimists.

See, Jacob’s father is still married to his mother. There was no coming out or coming to terms… just coming via Grindr.

“I just don’t want this to hurt my mum,” concludes Jacob.

That’s a lot of daddy issues to unpack. We wish the best for Jacob and his fam, but we predict more capital-D drama to come. Stay tuned…
