In an ABC What Would You Do?
segment to be broadcast Friday, strangers step up to defend the
children of gay parents.
In the scenario staged by ABC
producers, child actors play the roles of the children of gay parents
and the bullies.
The bullies openly berate the two
children while their fathers step away to do a little shopping.
“Are you going to turn out gay, too?
Just like them,” the bullies taunt.
“Guys, stop,” a girl pleads.
“We'll stop when your parents stop
being gay,” the harasser responds.
In a preview clip of the upcoming
segment, a woman is seen stepping up to defend the children.
“You think you're cool? Your making
fun of them because their parents are gay. Seriously? In front of
the whole restaurant here,” she scolds the boys.
“So, you think it's cool that they
have two dads?”
“Who cares? It's two people that
love them. With all the little kids out in the world that don't have
parents, you're gonna make fun of them because two people love them?”
Another stranger has a more visceral
reaction. He pounces on the bullies screaming, “Get out!” (The
