Mother shields her adult son from seeing boobs on TV, reaches Peak Mam

*shakes head*

WE’VE ALL EXPERIENCED the crushing awkwardness of having to sit through a sex scene in a movie or TV show with your parents. But if our mams did this, we’d have to have a word.

Redditor DantesInfernape was watching TV with his mother when, horror of horrors, there was a nude scene. Instead of letting it lie and accepting the weirdness, she fetched a towel and shielded her son’s eyes from the filth on screen.

It’s a bit extreme, but it makes some sense, right? Except for this:

I am a 22-year-old gay man.

Oh, mother.

Of course, gleeful Reddit users almost immediately took the opportunity to Photoshop her over EVERYTHING.

Here she is shielding Kim Jong-un from The Interview:
