Would a 9-year old even know about asking about his own “sexual orientation” and coming out as gay? Some people question if this could be a staged event.
“Would you help me telling the world that I’m gay, too? I want to be brave like you,” the question read.
Buttigieg recalled the difficulty of his own coming out story and applauded the boy for revealing his identity before thousands of strangers.
“I don’t think you need a lot of advice for me on bravery. You seem pretty strong to me. It took me a long time to tell even my best friend that I was gay, let alone to go out there and tell the world, and to see you willing to come to terms with who you are in a room full of a thousand people, thousands of people you’ve never met, that’s really something,” said Buttigieg.
I mean, I have thought in the past, he seems like a nice enough guy, if one were to meet him on the street or something but this, I’ve got to wonder about. Some of his policy stances too, are too extreme for me.
