A grandmother has gone viral after shutting down her son’s complaints about LGBT people.

Twitter user Minovsky explained that his “dad ranted about how LGBTQIA+ identities were getting too confusing to keep up with” – which sounds infuriating and extremely familiar.

After all, we’ve heard those grumbles from people in our lives.


“There are so many sexualities and genders these days,” they moan. “It’s so many letters!”

This, from the same people who remember the name and penalty record of every England player at the 1990 World Cup.

Thankfully, there are some heroes out there who are ready to take down these whining grouches – and one of them, it turns out, is related to Minovsky.

He explained to Twitter that “my 88-year-old grandma shut him down.”


She reportedly told her son: “The way things are now is better than when people had to hide away or killed themselves because nobody understood who they were.
