The Fine Brothers’ “Kids React” series takes on something incredibly topical in its latest episode: Same-sex marriage.
The kids in the video, ranging from ages 5 to 13, were shown two different marriage proposal videos featuring homosexual couples. Just like that old cliche that kids don’t see color, they apparently don’t see sexual orientation, either.
Interestingly, the kids were genuinely shocked to find out that some people oppose same-sex marriage, and that it’s not a right guaranteed to all in the U.S.
“If one person should be able to do something, then everyone else should be able to do it,” said one boy who already seems to understand what rights are.
The video does include some dissenting opinion. About half of the children were a bit taken aback after finding out that the videos depicted gay couples, but most of them shrugged that it was no big deal in the end. One of the children was apparently disgusted, but admitted that he didn’t know why. Though he conceded that some people are born with an attraction to their same gender, he said that he wouldn’t be friends with someone who came out to him.
One wonders how well these children understand such complex issues, but it’s an interesting video nonetheless. Check out the Fine Brothers’ latest above!
