Proof he's not just cute to me cuz he's my kid

Kiernan has been spending one day a week with his grammie lately, and today was that day. She had to go to the store so she put him in the stroller and took him over to the mall - a mall well known for it's weekday inhabitants of, well, old people.
Kman was starting to get drowsy so Grammie pre-empted any falling asleep by taking him out and having him walk along side of her holding her hand.
An old lady, who by Grammie's description must have been about 4 feet tall, stops and says
"You keep ahold of his hand now!"
Grammie "I will"
Old lady "Cuz you know... those gays..."
Grammie "oh....?"
Old lady looking back as she walked away "and he's a cute one!"

Oy vey!

Gah! So the rude comments don't stop after they are babies eh? Wow, if only I'd been there... I'm sure I would have said something equally inappropriate in return!

This story is vaguely familiar. I'm sure I've read it somewhere before....
