We boring adults have been arguing over gay marriage for far too long now, haven't we? The Fine brothers sure seem to think so.
The two filmmakers—known for their amazing reaction videos—recently posed the whole matter to a bunch of kids, to see what they have to say about it. And (spoiler alert) it turns out they're totally cool with it.
In the clip, a group of kids (ranging from just 5, all the way up to 13) are plopped in front of a TV and shown two back-to-back marriage proposals. Now these aren't just any marriage proposals. They're both pretty epic and hard to watch without laughing/crying/falling in love/all of the above. There's a flash mob and a Home Depot dance party. There's a woman standing on top of a bus, while holding up a sign that declares her love. (While The Lumineers song plays—cue the water works.)
They just so happen to both be between same-sex couples.
And watching the kids watching each proposal--while slowly discovering "Ohhh, they're gay"—is equal parts adorable and eye-opening.
Most consider it no big deal. Some react like they've just solved a puzzle. (And then return to thinking it's no big deal.) One kid says "Oh, they're gay. That's OK."
As the disclaimer before the video puts it:
"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. It's important to discuss these topics openly in hopes of a better tomorrow through dialogue and conversation."
If our kids are any indicator, it looks like we're on track to one day consider gay marriage a total non-issue. After all, as one kid wisely noted: "If one person should be able to be able to do something then everybody else should be able to do it."
