Pete Buttigieg’s Shocking Sexual Advice To A Child Will Really Make You Angry

Pete Buttigieg was asked a very unusual question by an audience member at a campaign event in Colorado.

The question came from a child who chose to have Buttigieg help him announce his coming out as gay. The child was a 9-year-old boy! How can he even have a full understanding of what it means to be gay at that age?

The boy said, “Thank you for being so brave. Would you help me tell the world I’m gay too? I want to be brave like you.”

Buttigieg responded to the boy, “I don’t think you need a lot of advice from me on bravery, you seem pretty strong. To see you…it took me a long time to figure out how to tell even my best friend that I was gay, let alone go out there and tell the world. And to see you willing to come to terms with you who you are in a room full of a thousand people…thousands of people you’ve never met, that’s really something.”

Buttigieg continued, “Let me tell you a couple things that might be useful. The first thing is that it won’t always be easy, but that’s okay because you know who you are and that’s really important because when you know who you are you have a center of gravity that can hold you together when all kinds of chaos is happening around you. That’s the first thing I want you to know.”

“The second thing I want you to know is that you’ll never know who’s taking their lead from you, who’s watching you and deciding that they can be a little braver because you have been brave. When I was trying to figure out who I was, I was afraid that who I was might mean that I could never make a difference, and what wound up happening instead is that it’s a huge part of the difference that I get to make. I never saw that coming and you’ll never know whose life you might be affecting right now just by standing here, right now. There’s a lot of power in that.”

“And the last thing I want you to know even if I can’t promise it’ll always be easy, I can promise you that I’m going to be rooting for you.”

Under no circumstance should a grown man who is a stranger be talking to a prepubescent child about their sexual orientation. This is wrong on so many levels.
