Kids React to Gay Marriage


(silence) ♪ (Betty Who, “Somebody Loves You”) ♪ – People are dancing in a Home Depot. – Ah, a flash mob? – It’s like an awesome flash mob. – ♪ …when you can’t be strong ♪ – This is like my cheer dance thing. – Is that his family? – Grandparents? – Why is that a boy right there? And why are they dancing? – I should be in that video. – ♪ …lay me down ♪ – His reaction.
He’s just like, “Oh my god!” – Wait… wait a second. – Okay, so there’s a guy
getting proposed to so… – ♪ Won’t you be good to me ♪ – He does have a nice suit,
I have to say that. – If somebody proposes to me,
that’s what I want to happen. – How do they get Home Depot
to approve this though? – Is he a business man? (giggles) – ♪ Somebody misses you when you’re away ♪
– That’s cool. – Okay, so they’re gay.
But it’s okay. – ♪ Ooh, somebody loves you ♪ – Does he love him? – Good friends. – (gasps) Is he going to propose? – (whispering) That’s so cute.
– (gasps) – (Spencer) Dustin, I love you
more than anything in this entire world. – A guy proposing to a guy?! – Are they gay? – (Spencer) Will you marry me?
– Marry who? You mean a boy marrying a boy? – That’s nice. (in video: cheering) – Congratulations! (in video: cheering
and applause continues) – This is crazy! (giggles) – How does a guy marry a guy?! – So they’re gay?
– (Finebros) Mm-hm. Oh. – That was so cute and it doesn’t matter
if they’re gay or anything. – That was just so cute! I c– I can’t even. Okay. ♪ (jubilant brassy music) ♪ – Is it another marriage proposal? – A girl marrying a girl? – Hi! (in video: woman laughs in disbelief) – Is that a girl? ♪ (The Lumineers, “Ho Hey”) ♪ – That’s a little dangerous,
standing on a bus. – What if she just fell off? – “A little over six years ago…” – “I met a girl…” – ♪ I’ve been living a lonely life ♪ – No crying. – “Who stole my heart…” – I feel like I know
what kind of topic this is. (in video: joyful laughter)
(laughs along) – It’s like the first thing you do,
try to pinch yourself. – ♪ I belong with you ♪ – (singing along) ♪ You belong with me
You’re my sweetheart ♪ – (singing along) ♪ I belong with you
You belong with me ♪ ♪ You’re my sweet– ♪ (giggles) I love this song. (in video: laughter and cheering) – (falsetto voice) Will you marry me? – How does a girl propose to a girl
and how does a guy propose to a guy? – Are they gay too? (in video: applause) – And there it comes. – (excited) Yay! – Now say, “Yes.” – (laughing) “Vote bot?” – Awww. – Guessing that’s a “yes”. (in video: cheering)
(shy giggle) – That was so adorable! – I love all these videos.
They’re just too cute. – Well, this is new! – That’s what I want to see a lot. Gay and lesbian people shouldn’t be hiding. – Wait, what was that about? ♪ (theme music) ♪ – (Finebros) What did both those videos
have happen in them? – Justin Bieber married a guy. – (Finebros) That wasn’t Justin Bieber!
– Oh. – Two marriage proposals, both with songs. – I was really in awe of them. – A boy and a boy together,
and a girl and a girl. – There was a guy proposing to a guy.
THAT’S JUST CRAZY! Then there was a girl proposing to a girl.
THAT’S JUST CRAZY! – (Finebros) How did
the videos make you feel? – Good. – They made me feel good. – It was really cool.
– Oh, I was so moved by that. – I’m sad. Gay is bad for you. – (Finebros) Why do you think that is bad?
– ‘Cause… I don’t know. – (Finebros) What do you think
people’s reactions were when they watched these videos?
– Um, it depends for certain people. – A lot of people were happy. – Really good, positive things.
– Yeah, I hope not negative things. – Some people must
have been like, “Rock on!” And some people were like, “Ew.” Some people are so anti-gay. – You don’t see that everyday.
It’s okay though. A boy can like a boy
or a girl can like a girl. – Most people would probably have
a reaction like, “It’s not natural!” It’s normal now. – (Finebros) A lot of people were upset
at these marriage proposals BECAUSE it was a man proposing to a man and a woman proposing to a woman. – I don’t get why anybody would be mad! – That’s just wrong. Anyone should be able to marry anyone. – You should feel happy
that they’re getting married. – People that do not like gay–
I mean, they are good. – That makes me mad. – You can’t tell
another person who to marry! What if you’re a girl
and your boyfriend proposes to you? That’s not different from a girl
proposing to a girl. – If you want to marry
the same sex that’s okay. It’s just like Macklemore said:
“I can’t change you, even if I tried.” – (Finebros laughs)
– ♪ Even if I wanted to ♪ ♪ My love, my love, my love ♪ – (Finebros) Do you know
what being gay means? – No. – A boy likes a boy
and a girl likes a girl. – (Finebros) It means that they
like someone of the same gender. – Does that mean they’re a gate?
– (Finebros) No, not a gate. – Or a Golden Gay Bridge? I just don’t know
where the name comes from. – (Finebros) The word actually comes
from the word that means happy. – If I got a box of microscopes,
would I be gay? – (Finebros) Well, because you’re happy?
– Yeah. – (Finebros) Why is it that some people
like the opposite gender while some people like the same gender? – Hmm. I don’t know. – I don’t know. – Well, it’s the same.
My best friend’s a boy, not a girl. – You’re hanging out with a guy
for the rest of your life. All you’re gonna know is guy things. If you go to a fancy restaurant,
you’re just gonna be burping the whole time. – People that like the same gender are depicted as abnormal,
but they were born that way. – Born that way. – Just how they were born. – I wasn’t born that way. – (Finebros) Well, do you think
that people are born that way? – (Finebros) Some people say
that people choose to be gay and that it’s something
that can be corrected or fixed. – Yeah, it could be possible actually. But if you really like that person,
you should be with that person. – That kind of stuff makes me sick. You like what you like! – You can’t be all bossy to people. Like, “(bossily) You can’t do that!
You can’t do that! You need to do this.
No! No! No!” It’s okay for school and stuff like that–
vocabulary, spelling, and everything, but when it’s yourself
don’t let people tell you what to do. – (Finebros) What do you
think about gay marriage? – I don’t care. – I’m just new to the concept. – The first time I ever heard
about it I was like, “Okay, that’s kind of weird but… well, people should be together
if they like each other a lot. – If one person should
be able to do something, then everybody else should be able to do it. – That’s awesome. Some of our really good friends
are gay and lesbian. – You shouldn’t have to be
any different than regular marriage, even though in our society it is. – My friends talk about it all the time. They use the word “gay” as something else. You don’t just say,
“(cruelly) Hey, you’re gay. Ha. Ha.” That’s dumb. Why would you be that mean to someone? – (Finebros) So in the United States,
only 14 states are you allowed to get married if you are gay– only 14. – That is just insane. – Out of 50.
That’s outrageous. – (sternly) I need to talk to Mr. President. – You know what? I feel bad for the people that live in that state and like the same gender. Mmm, it’s not right. – It kinda takes away
from whole freedom thing. – Love’s a freedom
and they’re totally taking that away. – It used to be illegal for a black person
to marry a white person. I don’t get why all this stuff has to be illegal. – Slavery wasn’t abolished
until Abraham Lincoln. Then women weren’t even allowed to vote. We’ve progressed a lot,
and there was bumps in the road, but now we’re at another bump. – I think that you have
to find a boy and a girl. I mean, you can get married like that.
But gay? You can’t get married. – (Finebros) But do you know
why you don’t like it? – I don’t know. – Some people want to live in one state
and they want to get married. They just ought to move to the other state. But I’m afraid there’s tornadoes. I don’t want to go there,
but I have to because I want to marry someone I like!
And that’s not right. – (Finebros) Well, in some places
in the world you can even be put in jail if you’re gay.
– (put off) Wow! – (Finebros) And even worse,
in some places you even could be sentenced to death just because
you love the same gender. (frustrated scream) – I’m not going wherever that is. – You can’t just kill
someone for what they like. – I’m kind of ashamed
that I live in this world! Why can’t I live on that moon
that supposedly has jellyfish on it? – (Finebros) Why does it matter
so much to other people who you love and who you marry?
– Because gay is bad for you. – I don’t know.
For crazy, dumb, selfish stuff. – I’m not really sure what’s in their mind,
what they’re thinking. Well, I guess people
consider it “not normal”. – Maybe their religion doesn’t want that? – Nobody really has a reason to hate gays. It’s not like–
there’s no completely valid reason. – (Finebros) A lot of people
who are gay are afraid to admit it and afraid to come out. They’re worried about their family
rejecting them or losing their friends. Why does something
like that happen so often? – Because they know
people are mean about it and they don’t want to be bullied. – ‘Cause they’re scared
of what might happen. – Some people, I guess, would think
they’re trying to hit on them. That totally changes the perspective. The thought might cross your mind of, “Oh my god.
What if they have a crush on me?” It’s the same thing if a guy says
he has a crush on me. And you say, “Oh, well, you know,
I don’t really like you in that way but we can still be friends.” I mean, you don’t just have to
completely cast him out of your life. You can’t read minds,
you can’t tell if someone likes you or not so… yeah, just deal with it. Deal with it.
(everyone laughs) – (Finebros) So if someone was your friend and they turned out to be gay
would you still be their friend? – No. – I would still be their friend but I would just ask them a few questions. – Well, I would
have a different look on it, but I think I’d still be
friends with them. – If it’s your friend,
then it’s your friend. – I’d love them more
for being honest with me. – They don’t turn different.
They just turn out to love a boy. – My best friend is gay,
and so he came out last year. And I mean, seriously,
we’ve been best friends since third grade. – I would keep being your friend. Even if you think it’s weird,
it doesn’t really affect on how they act. If you don’t think about it,
they sound like a perfectly normal kid. – (Finebros) So now let’s go over
some of the reasons people say they are against gay marriage.
– (wearily) Oh god. – (Finebros) Some have said
they’re against it because they say it’s not natural, because a man and a woman,
they can have children. Is that a valid reason
to be against gay marriage? – No!
– Nope. – Adopt! – People are mean to each other sometimes. Maybe that’s just their opinion. – That’s no reason at all. Some people want to have kids.
Some people don’t want to have kids. So it doesn’t really affect on it. – If it’s happening
and it’s not a chemical, it is natural. (laughs) – (Finebros) Another major reason
that it’s very controversial is that every major religion
has something in their books that could be interpreted
as being against people who are gay. What are your thoughts about people
who are against it for religious beliefs? – I mean, I’m a Christian
and I don’t think it’s wrong. – It’s, like, the 21st century.
– Things have changed. – If they said that, like,
“God told me blah, blah, blah,” I’d be like, “(mumbling) Um, that’s nice.
I’m gonna leave you now.” – Religion shouldn’t be something
that determines who you’re friends with. – A lot of people have that logic. My religion says so, so I have to do it. When you’re saying that
someone’s gay and that’s wrong, you’re using your religion
against someone else. That would be so wrong. – (Finebros) Some states
don’t let you get married but they’ll give gay couples the same rights as someone who is married.
Is that enough? I feel like they should be able
to get married if they want to but it’s better than nothing. – It’s not good because it’s like,
“Oh, you can have every single right. You just can’t get married.”
That’s the one thing they want. – I sort of get what they’re saying about, “Oh. What are they complaining about?
They still have the same rights.” But they’re still deprived of one thing which is sort of a major milestone
in somebody’s life. – You could have your friend that’s not gay. He’ll be married. But then you’ll be with your partner,
but you won’t be married. It doesn’t make sense. – Before Martin Luther King stood up, it’s like white people
were like kings and queens! Then black people
were like tiny, little servants. They’re treating–
the people who get married like, “We’re the people who own a mansion.” And then the other people…
people in small cottages. If a person wants to do
something and they can’t, that means something
in your life is impossible, like you have a brick wall all around you. And you want to go to that tree,
and you can’t pass over that wall. Would you want to move out? Yeah. But you can’t.
It’s like you’re trapped. – (Finebros) And what would
you want to say to the people out there that believe
gay marriage shouldn’t be allowed? – Get a hobby. – Cry me a river,
build me a bridge, and get over it. – Just get a whole new idea
about it because it’s fine. There’s nothing wrong with it. – If only gay people
could marry, you’d be really sad. So why shouldn’t they be able to marry? – It’s not okay to hate gay people. You can feel that way. Don’t bring it into the law. – Think of God. He loves everybody
and he can’t hate anything. – You guys are basic and nobody likes you.
No, I’m kidding. If they’ve never been around gay people and they’re just doing what the Bible says
or what their parents say, you’re judging that person
without actually meeting them. – You need to realize
you’re just a little speck. No one cares what you think. – I wouldn’t exactly say,
“You suck. Get out of my life.,” but I’d say that
in the nicest words possible. – (Finebros) And what about people
who might be watching that are either in a bad situation
and they are openly gay or they’ve not come out
and are too afraid to come out? – All right. I think this is a quote. “Never think about
what someone says about you. Only think about what you think of yourself.” – If someone doesn’t accept you,
then they obviously aren’t your friends. – I’m totally supporting you guys.
You guys are awesome. – I’m your friend! – (Finebros laughs)
– Air hug! – There are people who are supportive
of your sexual orientation. It does get better. – You always hear,
“Your real self shines through.” Maybe eventually someday
the whole thing will be over and a nice gay couple can be together. Maybe someday people
won’t have to worry about it and you might feel like
you’ve done an actual good thing. – (Finebros) Do you think that
by the time you have grown up that gay marriage will be legal everywhere?
– Yes. – I hope.
– It should be. – No! No! No! – I’m not sure.
People are selfish. I think the world everywhere–
like all planets– just legalize it. – (Finebros) Why is equal rights,
as a concept for all people, something so important?
– Because human beings are human beings and they should all be treated the same. – So it’s fair for everyone
and people don’t get upset or sad. – Remember that time where there
were bathrooms for black people and bathrooms for white people? This is the same thing. No one has a greater power
than you except, you know, the bureaucracy and everything. (laughs) – It’s so funny how people who,
let’s say, are racist. And then you say to them,
“We should be different because my eyes are blue and your eyes are brown.” They’d probably be like,
“Oh what? No, that’s absurd!” It’s the same thing! I mean, unless you guys want to hear
me go on and on about this, I suggest you just cut it right now. – This is a really big situation
of what people think and what people are hating. Even though that’s not my problem,
I will still fight for it if I can. (silence)

100 thoughts on “Kids React to Gay Marriage

  1. Gay marriage is basically the same as normal marriage so all the people who say that it's wrong: Be quiet and get on with your life cos people have their own opinions. To gay + lesbian people who feel ashamed, don't be afraid to tell people how you feel.

  2. my dad thinks its gross and TBh who cares love is love you shouldn't care about them worry about yourself. it's not a crime it's just how they are born so gay people should be free! when connor FRANTA said he was gay I'm just like ok.. connor is still connor and nothing will change that ill always be a fan even if he's gay.

  3. It's honestly so heart warming that most of these kids understand already that gay is okay and one thing that especially touches me is the girl who said 'it's not my problem but I will fight for it' because it gives the support needed for all gay and lesbian people on a viral video which maybe, just maybe, has the potential to reach some of the more close minded people and help them rethink their stance on gay rights.

  4. When i was watching this and saw the proposals i started crying of happiness and these kids are amazing accepting because there are many people that don't and its great to see kids accept to

  5. Honestly this is a really important to me. I mean growing up you always hear the saying about if you don't learn history then you're doomed to repeat it, and that's what's happening a lot with gay rights to black rights. I know I always thought about how cruel it is to treat people differently becauSe of something small like color and that I was glad to not have to live through it except now I myself and one who is metaphorically the "slaves". I still to this day am not a free person in this "free" country and it is just total shit. I am just waiting for the day that it is just perfectly okay to be homosexual and then after that maybe stretch out to bisexuality. Even many gays themselves are against bisexuality when they still are being treated how they treat us bisexuals. I honestly have dreams of within my lifetime for it to be okay to be bisexual but I'm not quite so sure if once all of the homosexuals are becoming accepted if it'll have to go through this again for the bisexuals.

    PS, I totally cried during this.

  6. I have a friend that is a lesbian and all of my other friends bully her for being a lesbian! But I always stand up for her.

  7. I am so glad that most of the kids have honest opinions it really gives hope for our many next generations and hopfully lift this conflict this video brightened my day!!!!

    love this video!!!Β 

  8. when do those people realise that the love is the most thing in life it feeds your heart and effect your way in life to the better. i personally don't support gay marriage but if that what makes them happy let them do their thing.

  9. It doesn't matter whether you are gay, lesbian, bisexual, or straight. People have the choice to do and be whatever they want, and if some people can't except that, then forget them. Do as u wish, don't let haters get in your way. Be you.

  10. For someone who is closeted (hiding their sexuality) this video brings a tear to my eye that children so young understand that people need to be treated equally no matter who they love. πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ’•πŸŒˆπŸŒˆ

  11. Alan Turing the inventor of the computer. He shorted WW2 by three years. He was a genius and cracked a uncrackable nazi code.

    And he was gay…

  12. I love the kids' positive reactions. As a lesbian I'm glad these kids support same-sex marriage. These kids are awesome.

  13. I am literally in tears about this for two reasons
    1 I am openly gay myself and I hate it when people brig up death penaltys or jail for gays (I do live in England though)
    2 I love that even though some of the kids were new to the idea they still got behind it and it makes me realise that not all straight people are shrewd idiots. I need reminding sometimes because of the stuff I haves faced in the past

  14. I've seen this video many times, and it never gets old! It really does give me hope for a better tomorrow. πŸ™‚ Peace to all my fellow LGBT brothers, sisters and otherwise, and cheers to those of you who are straight allies. Live and let love. <3

  15. This was my favorite episode of Kids React. I love seeing young kids reactions to serious topics.

  16. Being gay and watching this video made me sp happy. To see the younger generatipns opinions on the and to see how much has changed since i was there age. Its amazing. Thank you fine bros

  17. I couldn't help but notice that all the older children were totally for gay marriage and seemed to find it natural. That could mean that the generation being raised today is thought that gay marriage and relationships in general is completely normal and accepted and I think that is just amazing!
    No one should have to be told who to like and not to like, that's not something you can control. I know tons and tons of gay people and they're just like any other person.Β 

    I guess my point is – gay marriage should allowed everywhere, like come on guys.. Shouldn't people be allowed to love who they want to? I think it's beautiful because it's love, and love is the same no matter what age, gender or preference. Let love be love and allow gay marriage!

  18. As deep as you think these kids are.. they are are still kids who mostly think from their own perspective. Β If you turned all the opposers of gay marriage back into children, they might just say the same things. Β It's the lack of judgement and experience that allows these kids to answer so easily. Β They may think differently many years from now.

  19. I totally love this video these kids know what there talking about I so support gay people

  20. I'm so happy ho have seen this video today, on the same day and just before I found out that gay marriages were legalised in all the American States. #LoveWins !!

  21. Let's applaud America for having Gay Marriage legal in all fifty states ruled by the supreme court. WAVE THE RAINBOW.

  22. "Only 14 states….."
    Not anymore. πŸ˜ŠπŸ‘©β€πŸ‘©β€πŸ‘¦πŸ‘©β€πŸ‘©β€πŸ‘§πŸ‘©β€πŸ‘©β€πŸ‘§β€πŸ‘¦πŸ‘©β€πŸ‘©β€πŸ‘¦β€πŸ‘¦πŸ‘©β€πŸ‘©β€πŸ‘§β€πŸ‘§πŸ‘¨β€πŸ‘¨β€πŸ‘¦πŸ‘¨β€πŸ‘¨β€πŸ‘§πŸ‘¨β€πŸ‘¨β€πŸ‘§β€πŸ‘¦πŸ‘¨β€πŸ‘¨β€πŸ‘¦β€πŸ‘¦πŸ‘¨β€πŸ‘¨β€πŸ‘§β€πŸ‘§πŸ‘¬πŸ‘­πŸ‘¨β€β€οΈβ€πŸ‘¨πŸ‘©β€β€οΈβ€πŸ‘©πŸ‘¨β€β€οΈβ€πŸ’‹β€πŸ‘¨πŸ‘©β€β€οΈβ€πŸ’‹β€πŸ‘©
