Gay community tries to defend video of young boy twerking with grown men cheering
Many are outraged that LGBT web news sites are defending a video of a young boy thought to be between the ages of 8 and 12 who is dancing provocatively in the streets of a gay parade based in Brazil. Several people, men in drag included, are gathered around the boy to cheer him on.
The video was posted to Youtube by “Ovenworthy,” an online publication, and is entitled, “This is the Future You Chose.” Since Thursday, the video has been viewed over 400,000 times and received 1,324 comments. The video has also been placed under an age restriction due to its content.
The young boy is wearing nothing but a pair of tight jean shorts as he grinds, twerks and gyrates to the song,“Sissy that Walk,” by cross-dresser RuPaul. He is surrounded by several men in drag who cheer on his overly-suggested dance moves in the streets of the Sao Paolo Pride Festival of Brazil.
Publications like “Gay Star News” find no fault in the video, saying that it seems like the boy was just “having a great time” and that those who are voicing concerns over his dancing are “homophobes.”
“In the 90’s there was a popular booty-shaking dance Lambada, not much different from twerking—all the kids were dancing! This kid is just having fun, and yes, in Brazil sexuality is a lot more part of the culture then any westerner can understand,” one commenter said in defense of the video.
“That kid didn’t just learn that from anywhere. He has obviously been exposed to inappropriate behavior and it is up to his guardians to look after him properly. The kid might not see it as s*xual, but that is not the point, and if you think this type of behavior and little boys in tight short shorts is ok then you have a serious problem,” another commented.
Matt Barber of BarbWire says the video is “extremely disgusting and troubling.”
“It is, however, where we are headed as a nation,” Barber adds. “The s*xual anarchist agenda steamrolls ahead and children are in the cross-hairs. The organized ‘LGBT’ lobby has long lusted for the abolition of all age of consent laws. While not all ‘gays’ are child abusers, pederasty has been a central aspect of the homos*xual lifestyle since the days of the Greek bathhouse.”
