Is This Animated Short About a Gay Teenage Romance a Game Changer?

This cute video has gone ultra-viral, and you can see why. It tries to make the feelings of a same-sex crush relatable for everyone. But will it do anything to actually change anyone’s hearts and minds, or will it simply reaffirm everyone’s preconceived biases? For LGBT supporters, this video is adorable but isn’t very substantive. For opponents of homosexuality, it will likely just seem like an over glorification of something they oppose.

But what do you think? Can a short film like this bring us together on a topic so controversial? Leave your comments below.
