Boys talking on headphones while playing their favourite video game is not uncommon. One 12-year-old, on the other hand, is sweeping the internet for a more serious cause: educating his peers about homophobia. People are fascinated by the boy’s ability to debunk stereotypes and challenge preconceptions while firing rounds in a Call of Duty: Warzone play.
Kid expresses the idea of LGBTQ+ community
The little youngster is heard criticising his friends for not supporting gay people and condemning their ideas on the LGBTQ+ community in a video shot from behind. He continues on, attempting to teach them that if someone identifies as LGBTQ, it does not mean they are gay. He continues on, attempting to explain to them that identifying as LGBTQ does not always imply that they are gay, and that the acronym LGBTQ stands for “more than simply gay.”
Video goes viral in Tiktok
Watch the Video here:
TikToker @bummblebee__ recently published the video on the app, but it gained traction after it was shared on Twitter.
“So you’re saying that if you’re trans, you’re still basically a guy?” “It’s their decision, what’s the problem with that?” he asks, before adding, “It’s their decision, what’s the problem with that?”
“Would you stop being friends with someone if they were gay?” the boy is heard asking, while informing his friends that his sister, who was filming the video, is homosexual.
Sister seemed overwhelmed after seeing her brother’s defending gesture
The girl who filmed the incident told Daily Dot that she was really pleased of her brother after overhearing him defend LGBTQ persons to his pals. “It was really good knowing that he listens,” they said, adding that they interact with him on a regular basis regarding LGBTQ rights and the Black Lives Matter movement.
Positive comments on the video:
The viral video has racked up millions of views on TikTok and has since travelled to other platforms, with the youngster receiving praise for standing up for his sister and other LGBTQ+ people.
“The children will automatically know and comprehend. The only perplexity arises when you teach them to despise those who aren’t the default.”
“Please watch these two-minutes if you need a reminder that the kids are fine…” One mentioned
Another man tweeted, “This boy is our future, and it brings joy to my heart. (I could do without the gun video game, but for now, I’ll take the win.) 🥰”
A proud father commented, “This is something that my son does as well. I frequently hear him trying to reason with people about vaccines, masks, colour, and, yes, ignorance about how people self-identify while he’s gaming. I’m delighted we were able to instil in our son the ability to express himself.”
