Cute kid upstages his gay dads at marriage equality rally

At an event supporting a same-sex marriage bill in Minnesota, two male parents find out kids don't behave when you try to do something serious
Two gay parents and their twin boys went to speak at a rally supporting a same-sex marriage bill in Minnesota, and the results were very cute.

Something true about parenting, regardless of sexual orientation, is that kids don’t behave at the times when you're trying to do something serious.

On Wednesday (27 February) partners Dr Paul Melchert and James Zimmerman found that out when they went to go speak in support of a bill reversing the state’s ban on same-sex marriage.

While Melchert wanted to say, as a pediatrician, there is no evidence children of same-sex parents are worse off than those of opposite-sex parents.

But his three-year-old son, Emmett, wanted to play with the microphone, wiggled, drove a toy car across his dad's head and kissed his face. Well, he acted like your average, happy toddler.
