This woke grandma isn’t having any of her son’s homophobic B.S.

An 88-year-old grandmother was not having any of her son’s casual homophobia. The story, which was shared on Twitter by the woman’s grandchild, has quickly gone viral.

Twitter user @MinovskyArticle’s father was recently ranting and raving about how all the “LGBTQIA+ identities were getting too confusing to keep up with.”

That’s when grandma piped up to tell her son to please shut the hell up and join the rest of the family in the 21st century.

“The way things are now is better than when people had to hide away or killed themselves because nobody understood who they were,” she scolded. “Respect costs you nothing.”


The tweet has received nearly 200,000 likes and 55,000 retweets.

When people questioned how an 88-year-old woman could be so, well, enlightened, @MinovskyArticle explained that Grandma has a few “bi and trans grandkids, and has been open minded and willing to learn if it means her family is happy. That’s all any of us can really ask for.”

That’s when others chipped in to share stories of their “woke” grandparents, too:
