Who ever said that the older generation was intolerant?

A grandmother has gone viral on Twitter, after her epic comeback to her son who was displaying some homophobia was posted on Twitter.

The son in question was complaining about all of the different sexual identities, saying that it was “getting too confusing to keep up with.”

And that’s when the grandmother struck back, saying: “The way things are now is better than when people had to hide away or killed themselves because nobody understood who they were.

“Respect costs you nothing.”

Since being posted on Monday, the tweet has gotten over 55,000 retweets, and is close to getting 200,000 likes.

Sadly as is always the case in scenarios like this, people were swift to dismiss it as fake. This led to the poster, Minovsky issuing another tweet that read: “To the ‘I guess woke grandmas are a thing we’re making up now’ quote tweeters.

“I wouldn’t describe my grandma as ‘woke,’ but she’s got 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.”
