We're honestly very inspired by the number of people who took it upon themselves to help stand up for these families.
Everyone knows the show What Would You Do? and how they test unsuspecting people reactions with moral dilemmas. This time around they pitted a homophobic waitress against a family being parented by a gay couple — in Texas, one of the most conservative red states there is.
The patron responses will surprise you. Go ahead and watch it above.
Wow! Half of the test subjects actually went out of their way to help, whereas most of the rest just kept silent. Only a few actually agreed with the waitress.
And it was so moving to see that gentleman hand her the note… the only word we have for it is inspirational!
Those are the kinds of reactions we need, and nobody should stay silent if something like this is happening. Hopefully with enough reactions like that we'll get to a point where no situations arise where a reaction is required!
Equality for all!
