Homophobe refuses knee surgery for mom over fear the knee will be "gay"


For all the incredible advancements in medicine over the past few decades, it's sadly apparent that doctors have not yet found a cure for ignorance. Case in point: the Facebook post this person shared from his mom's timeline to reddit.  

In the screed, a friend of the poster's mother explains she has just refused knee replacement surgery on behalf of her ailing mother because the doctor wouldn't assure her the knee wouldn't be gay, lesbian or trans.
