Ignorant Mom!!!So me and my mom were eating out. There is a gay couple in the next table. Very affectionate to each other. I hadn't even noticed them. My mother nudges me and nods in their direction. She tells me and i quote they didn't get enough beating when they were a child. Hence they're gay now. I was literally shocked. I know she and i have had many differences over the years. But i never assumed she'd be a homophobe cause she is also a health care worker and we learn people have no control over one's sexual orientation.
So i tell her that could be her grandchild in the future. There is every single possibility that her grandchild could be gay or bi and it has nothing to do with how the child is raised/disciplined. She ignores me and goes on with her nonsensical views/opinions.
However, there is a change i see lately. When we walk past a gay couple, she doesn't comment on them anymore. Or maybe she still does, just doesn't do it in front of me anymore.
Anyways people, my point being be true to yourself and live without fear.
