Re: TIL...

Today I learned that my great-Aunt, who is the only surviving one of tons of siblings (including my grandpa) is not only a homophobe (which I already knew), but racist, a birther, and an idiot.

Just one of the gems out of her mouth today was that women should be seen and not heard, and they should be in the kitchen making the man's dinner. She had been watching some program and someone mentioned that "uppity 'n' Oprah" ... When I pointed out that my aunt is, technically speaking, also a woman, she told me to shut my "f" mouth, then went on a homophobic rant.

I'm glad that sort of attitude seems to be dying out as the bigots age and keel over, but damn. It's fucked up.
