Kids React to Gay Marriage in "Very Encouraging" New Viral Video—Watch Now!

It's been a big year for the gay rights movement, especially in terms of marriage equality. We've heard everyone and their mother discuss it—political pundits and talking heads, your neighbors and relatives, celebrities, etc.

Now we hear the opinion of the next generation.

Benny and Rafi Fine aka The Fine Bros. have finally tackled the topic in their Kids React series, asking kids between the ages of five and 13 (from California, it is worth noting) how they feel about gay proposals and marriage (H/T Gawker).

"This episode of Kids React will discuss the sensitive subject of same-sex marriage," The Fine Bros. explain in the video. "Which continues to be an issue not just in the United States, but around the world."

The Fine Bros. kicked off the conversation by showing the kids two proposal videos that have gone viral—a Utah man who proposed to his boyfriend with a flash mob at Home Depot, and a Seattle-based lesbian who popped the question on top of a bus

They continue, "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."

No matter where your personal beliefs fall, it's an interesting watch. Some confusion ("This is new!"), some questions ("How does a guy marry a guy?!! How does a girl propose to a girl?!") and one hilarious shout out to Justin Bieber.

"VERY encouraging...the unspoiled inner compass of young people pointing to compassion. So sweet :)" one YouTube commenter wrote.
