Kids react to gay marriage proposals

A little video from Fine Brothers Productions, which owns a corner of the reaction space on YouTube, has been making the rounds online featuring reactions of 13 California kids between the ages of five and 13 to two different gay marriage proposals.

“The opinions of children about these issues can give incredibly valuable insight into where our society currently stands and where we are headed as people,” write Benny and Rafi Fine as an introduction to their video. “It’s important to discuss these topics openly in the hopes of a better tomorrow through dialogue and conversation.”

Most of the children are supportive, though you can definitely see traces of previous generations in some responses. The question and answer segment is brilliantly done, getting kids to express their views without shaming them. Ultimately, the video offers a very hopeful outlook for the future in this country — at least among kids growing up in California.
