In Mexico, a Teen tries to block Thousands of Anti-Gay Protesters

This is amazing to see.

This weekend in Mexico, thousands protested against same-sex marriage. In Celaya, Guanajuato, a 12-year-old boy walked out in the middle of the street to block the anti-gay protesters.

Here's more from Regeneracion:
"At first I thought the child was only playing," explains the author of photography, who later approached the child to ask his motives. "I have an uncle who is gay and I hate that I hate," was his answer.

Rodriguez added that the boy, who stood before a crowd of "little more than 11 thousand people", has approximately 12 years.

The image recalls, for its elements (an individual of unknown identity facing a much larger force him to defend a cause that considers fair), the famous photograph of "Tank Man" protests Tiananmen Square , China, in 1989.
The guts this kid has... Amazing

This shows no matter how young, hate should not exist.
