Kids have always said the darndest things, but also some of the most profound. An essay written by a fourth grader has gone viral after his teacher posted it on Reddit.
The Reddit user, only identified by the username rafa3l2, posted a photo of the essay after reading the fourth grader’s argument. “I am not sharing this because of how the perfect the sentences are, but because of how clear his thought process is on this specific issue."
The student made his argument plenty clear and simple, which is a refreshing take on such an inundated social issue.
“Why gay people should be able to get married is you can’t stop two adult’s from getting married because there grown and it doesn’t matter if it creeps you out just get over it [SIC]” the student wrote.
According to the Reddit user, the class was told to choose a topic and write an argument for or against an issue. The student received a C, according to the teacher, but only because of the grammar and spelling errors.
The letter reads:
Why gay people should be able to get married is you can’t stop two adult’s from getting married because there grown and it doesn’t matter if it creeps you out just get over it. And you should be happy for them because it’s a big momment in their life. When I went to my grandparents wedding it was the happies momment.
As you can see gay people should have the right to get married and you shouldn’t judge other peoples lives because if you was gay you wouldn’t want people talking about you [sic].
“When it comes to gay marriage, a lot of people's logic could use a little work,” one Reddit user wrote.
