80-Year-Old Iowan Grandmother Proud Of Her State, But Not The Way It’s Treating Her Married Gay Son

Jean Argus, an 80-year-old grandmother from Iowa (because those are the only descriptors grandmothers get), loves her gay son. And his gay husband. And gurl has a message for any lawmakers trying to fuck wit ’em. She took her inspiration, in a brilliant example of internet awesomeness, from Zach Wahls. “My son is not an issue. He is a person just like you,” she tells legislators. “She should not be an object of your scorn. … I am outraged by the way gay marriage is being used by some to further their own political ambitions.”
