Comedian and radio talk show host Dave Rubin asks his grandmother to share a few words of wisdom on life, love, and the gays.

Many people have stereotyped older generations as being antigay simply because of the era in which they were born. However, Elaine — the grandmother of comedian and radio talk show host Dave Rubin — is proof that age has nothing to do with a person’s opinion on LGBT civil rights.

In the video below, Rubin asks his grandmother to share a few words of wisdom she has picked up during her lifetime. After she says the most important thing in life is “to be a kind person,” Rubin reminds her that he told her he was gay a few years ago. Elaine not only says she doesn’t care, but that she had completely forgotten about her grandson’s sexuality. “I guess I’ve known it, but I never think about it. It doesn’t matter to me.”

“Are you a good person? That’s all that counts,” she says before adding. “How many people aren’t gay and they’re stinkers? So what’s the difference?”

Clearly, anyone wishing to live a good life would be wise to take a few notes from Elaine.
