Not sure if posted

Basically, a lesbian couple and their children are harassed by a waitress at a restaurant in Texas, and some people really don't like it. Unknown to these good-hearted folks, the gay couple and the waitress are actually actors.

There are some bad eggs in here, but it's all balanced out by the people with their heads on straight.

I like this show, except it makes me feel terrible because I don't think I'd do the right thing in most of those situations.

I cringed immediately at "You're gay and you have kids?".

I was surprised at the guy with the goatee and baseball hat who stood up for the couple first, and the guy with the earrings, reminds me not to make judgements

Now, isn't it a shame?

And cause each other pain...

Good for those two men. Well done.

You should always make judgements about other people, else nobody would ever stand up to injustices because they choose to not notice them. Making judgements does not always mean that they are always negative. Always be keen and aware of who's around you.

That's so gay.

Nice to see people reacting in a nice way. Although I'm not that fond of the concept of the show.

That letter was so touching. I'll be honest, I thought he would be last person to do anything.

Guess I shouldn't judge people quickly.

When I read the thread title, I pictured

Anyways, that was a great video. I honestly would not have said anything at all. I'm a bitch like that but I have been getting better at speaking up lately.

Is the show itself called What Would You Do? I watched it in Math class before, where a black woman was harassed by a store employee saying that she looked she would steal something (based on race, of course.) Then there was something about a pedophile taking a kid away and seeing if nearby parents would say anything.

EDIT: Holy shit, some of those facts are insane. 29 out of 50 states legalized refusal of service based on homosexuality? And only 9 do not allow discrimination and gays when fostering or adopting a child? What the hell is wrong with those people?

I've never seen the show before, but I felt the same way the first time I saw the clip in the OP.

my faith in humanity is slightly restored. I'm from a place where being gay/bi/etc. is on the same level as being straight (as it should be). I can't even conceive of this happening in real life. I would most definitely defend someone who was being harassed in that manner.

So I just learnt that gays can be refused service in Texas. I'm disgusted.

I'm trying to think of what would happen if that first guy punched her out.


I hate it when people say this, but if that was me, I probably would have.

Of course, I did not know the waitress was an actor too, but still.

I know, it's horrific. I can't believe that politicians of America dare talk about the 'injustices' being committed thousands of miles away when they can't even sort out their own moral issues.

That was truly one of the best things I've ever seen in my life. I've never been moved by anything in TV or film as much as that moved me. Bravo to that guy x10000.

Also, that guy at 5:50 is a huge dick. **** that guy.

Man I've gotta watch more of these.

Now that letter surely must have been scripted or something. Otherwise, he might just be like THE nicest guy ever. It doesn't make sense. HOW CAN PEOPLE BE THAT EXCELLENT TO EACH OTHER?
Really, after that letter, they should have just exposed the bluff right away. I'd feel slightly guilty to get someone so emotionally involved in something that's not even, well, real. (Without them knowing about it, I'm fine with movies!)

Oh? Imposing jurisdiction on the well-being of children because you think a mom and dad are ideal? Strange, I grew up with a mom and dad till about the age of six when they had a violent divorce and got remarried to other people (still mom-and-pop families). of those two separate families, they had more children and then those families divorced and the spouses from those marriages left to form even more "IDEAL" mom-and-pop families. All the offspring, me included, in these strange parental antics have lived in "ideal" families where it didn't matter if the mom and pop were mentally or emotionally mature for marriage or parenthood, all that mattered was that one parent had a penis and the other had a vagina. That is what is truly righteous. Kids be dammed if their folks share the same genitalia! Dammed my ass... In my lifetime, from my experience I see that having a traditional family is very likely to result in failure, distrust, and unwarranted anger. All that matters is if the parents love and care for the children. Nothing else. Period. End of discussion. Fuck your ideals.

This is true. It's like parents who are super Christian often having children who are atheist, or people with racist parents harbouring religious beliefs. I assume it's either a mix of trying to be a teenager who disagrees with everyone (which is a good thing, to a degree) and the fact that when people are bombarded with bullshit they generally become bored of it and look for more appropriate viewpoints.

Of course. Because as South Park demonstrated, people who are attracted to the same sex are attracted to every member of their sex, regardless of age.

Of course, I mean it's a well-known fact that if you turn your back on a gay man, you're going to get raped. Simple as that.

Little things like that are amazing. A few weeks ago I found a post-it note stuck to a bus-stop. I can't remember it word for word, but it read something along the lines of:

Hello, you don't know me, and I don't know you, but I want you to know that you're a wonderful person. I know you've made some mistakes in your life, mistakes that you aren't proud of, and mistakes you've lost sleep over, but I want you to know that they're nothing to be ashamed of. You'll learn from them, you'll grow with them and thanks to them you'll become a better person. You have no idea how many people you make happy, and you have no idea how much you mean to somebody.

You'll never be as beautiful as you are now.


'twas rather touching, despite the fact it was a completely anonymous note.

Sadly, I can't say for sure if i'd do the same thing. I know in my mind I think I could, but if it really came down to it, i'd stare at my food and try to leave as quickly as possible.

If I was there, I would go too far in the opposite way. I'd flip out on the waitress, and possibly punch her in the face.
