Children these days are extremely aware of what is going on around them. With the advent of the Internet, it has been easier for them to learn about all kinds of situations and have basic knowledge about them.
A remarkable example of this has gone viral on Twitter. It shows a 12 year old boy playing the popular video game called “Call of Duty”. With his headphones on, he’s busy battling the enemy onscreen while giving his two cents on a very important issue. He calls out to homophobes who have discriminated against LGBTQ and makes them feel worse about who they are.
In addition, he also adds that the acronym does not only define homosexuals. “LGBTQ is more than just gay,” he said.
The video was shared on Twitter via a page titled “Fifty Shades of Whey”. It has garnered 3.5 million views on the microblogging site. Many Internet users appreciated his efforts. “This is my son’s generation. We have to save the world for them. They are better than us,” said one user. Others have also realized that it’s not just about talking while playing a video game.
