Today, my mom texted me to let me know that my wife and I are no longer allowed to visit her house together, because she doesn’t want it to appear like she’s OK with queer relationships, but she’s OK if we visit one at a time because she still wants to see our son. FML
Punishing people for their beliefs won't have any constructive outcome. OP needs to accept her mother for the person she is even if she can't do the same, if she still wants her to be active in her and her child's life.
Time to tell your mom she's cut off. You don't need to deal with homophobia just because she is related to you, and it is entirely wrong to put your son in situations where you know he will be exposed to bigotry, especially against his own parents. Cut her out entirely.
she should not be behaving that way it's not nice to do something like that to anyone maybe she should not have the chance to see her grand children until she adjust her behavior to something more polite and understanding
Tell her none of you will be visiting anymore because you don't want to look like you're OK with bigoted homophobes, but you're OK with her becoming a decent person some day.
Mom is trying to make you choose between her and your significant other. Don’t let her do that. You get to choose your significant other, not your parents. Your mom is a fool.
