Grandad's Confusion

 

- There you are Lesley, I've got some bad news to

tell you about grandad.

- What's happened mum?

- Well, we had to put him  in a home.

- A nursing home?

- Yes, a nursing home, we thought that would be

best. He's been having some strange ideas lately.

- Yes I know.

- It all started last year when he said two men 

couldn't be married, and now it's gotten worse, 

he's been telling everyone that a woman can't 

have a penis, and that a man can't give birth. He's

been getting worse and worse, I just can't see how

he can function in a modern progressive society, so a 

nursing home's the best place for him. Dementia's

a terrible thing!

- I'm sure it is mum, but he's better of where he 

can be looked after.

- And what are your plans for this week Lesley?

- Well tomorrow I'm going to identify as a muslim

lesbian, and I don't know, maybe for the rest of the

week I'll just be a cis chinese male. What do you 

think?

- It's your choice Lesley.

- Sure is mum. Pity about grandad...
