We Dare You to Watch This 9-Year-Old Vogueing Without Smiling

To every angry right-winger who thinks the gays are an insidious bunch of recruiters set to destroy the moral fabric of our youth, please note: sometimes all it takes for a kid to express his fabulous, potentially emerging gay self, is a Karaoke machine and a green screen. And to the aforementioned nut-jobs, if you can watch this video without catching a wave of positive energy emanating from the unfiltered, unapologetic self expression, then there really is something wrong with you. To everyone else, enjoy and happy pride month!

      I think this is wonderful. So proud of someone who could do this back in 1991. WHen I was 9 my father would have locked me in my room for the rest of my life if I had done that. This freedom for children to express themselves and avoid a life of hiding and lies is magnificent. And I am sure has saved countless lives from suicide.

      I am so torn.

      Video and dancing were done well. The kid has raw talent. I remember what it was like to be young and have a desire in the heart burning to be expressed.

      But when I see children making sexually suggestive moves I cringe. Do they really grow up that fast? I also think that kiddie beauty pageants are disgusting. Hell, I’m embarrassed when I see a teen acting adult in a high school production.

      I remember in the early 90’s how the neighbor girls (aged around 10) would be outside singing “Like A Virgin”. I would wonder if their immigrant parents knew what these kids were saying.

      If the law says that it’s a crime to have sex with minors then why are children pushed to act like adults before their time?

      @Scott: You must have a dirty mind because I have never seen or heard anything even remotely sexual about Madonna’s Vogue – the song or the video.

      I agree with you about the kiddie pageants, though. Disgusting.

      @Carlos: No, not a dancer. Check out his Vimeo page. He grew up to be a screen writer and is quite a hottie.

      @Scott: I don’t see any suggestive moves the boy is making. A Michael Jackson crotch-grabbing number would be a different thing. He doesn’t even to that ‘shirtless male dancer’ part of the Vogue video.

      @delurker:
      I am not “directionless”, and normally I avoid politics because its divisive and pointless, but here I had to come to his defense.

      1) Its GOProud

      2) “god, you people are vermin.” That’s mean. A little political diversity within the gay community is a good thing.

      3) Most (almost all) major political policy issues fall into one of three categories; social policy, economic policy, and foreign policy. Obviously gays who are socially right leaning are self-hurting, but there is no reason why that needs to effect an individuals view on economic or foreign policy. Most people, including myself, are pretty moderate, even right-leaning on these issues.

      4) I don’t actually know of any bigoted remarks made by members of the left (and by “left,” I mean politicians who are generally left of center on average.) Left-leaning politicians tend to be good about being supportive, though I’m sure that there are some anti-gay left-wingers out there because I cannot imagine that there isn’t at least one leftist who isn’t prejudice.

      5) Lets not forget why were on this page; an adorable kid by the name of Robert Jeffrery (who indeed grew up to be quite hot!) put this video of himself on vimeo – and for good reason it went viral. God, I love this site. PRIDE! PRIDE! PRIDE! PRIDE!
