An Indiana mum has gone viral for her response to her daughter’s gay friend requesting to stay the night under her roof.
When Mason Brian Barclay politely and courteously asked permission to be included in an all-girl’s sleepover at his best friend, Houston’s house, he didn’t expect her mum’s reply.
It seems Twitter found it just as funny as Mason, along with the text conversation, quickly went viral:
Hey Mrs Shelton! This is Mason Brian Barclay, I am one of Houston’s best friends. If she had people over on Friday would I, a very homosexual male, be able to take part in the sleepover?
I think the common meaning behind only allowing the same sex to share sleepovers is due to the typical interest in the opposite sex, when in this case, I do not like the opposite sex.
Thank you for your time and consideration, have a great night. Amen.
Houston’s mum hilariously replied:
Hmmm. Well my husband is hot. Should I worry?
Twitter praised her witty rejoinder:
That took guts, and this mom acknowledged it *fabulously*! I wish you a fun night with your friends! Stay away from Houston's dad, now. ??

The sleepover is currently billed for Friday night, and UNILAD has reached out to Mason to find out whether he’ll be in attendance.
We’ll be asking exactly how hot is Houston’s dad too.
