Hate, just like any other human behavior, is something that we learn as we grow up. Babies do not come to this world knowing that black is different than white, that rich is different from poor, that Catholic is different from Muslim, and that gay is different from straight.

Mexican YouTubers Eva De Metal and Maire Wink joined forces to produce a video in which children school adults on same-sex marriage and adoption, and explain that “love is love” no matter what your sexual preference is.

In the clip, which Wink described as “the most beautiful video in the world,” kids are seen questioning the amount of hate the LGBT community receives on a daily basis.

“We are little, but it is easy for us to understand that when two women or two men kiss or hug each other, it means they love each other,” they say in the footage. “Why does it matter if they are men or women? Loving is OK. It does not matter who you love.”

They continue, “What we do not get is, why is it so hard for adults to understand?”

The pro-love production aims to raise awareness towards same-sex marriage and adoption, two of the most controversial subjects in Mexico at the moment.

“Timon and Pumbaa took care of Simba,” they explain. “I mean, they gave him insects for lunch, but in the end he became a great king, and even though he had two dads, he never lacked love.”

The Mexican society is still one of the least accepting societies in the world. Earlier this month, professional soccer players, Bianca Sierra and Stephany Mayor, received hateful and offensive messages for showing their love on social media.

“Lesbians f*ing disgust me, we would’ve burnt them already in my hood,” wrote Twitter user @Antiheroe.

Watch the video below and spread the message, “love is love.”
