More than 11,000 people were marching against gay marriage in Celaya, Guanajuato, Mexico on Sept. 10th. Queue our hero, a 12-year-old Mexican boy, who stood against the crowd as a solitary voice of reason against the tide of oppression.
Afterwards, the child said, "I have an uncle who is gay and I hate the hatred."
Same-sex marriage has been legalized in Mexico City and 9 of the nation's 31 states. There are challenges currently underway in the 22 other states.

His moment was reminiscent of the Tiananmen Square "Tank Man" in Beijing in 1989:
We won't stop saying it, because it's the truth no matter where you live:
Support Human Rights Campaign Here, or Freedom to Marry here.
A man working construction on Trump Tower Vancouver put a Mexican flag at the top of the building to highlight the work that Mexican immigrants do, even for people like Trump. Along with the picture, he added this explanation on the Facebook post (we've only quoted part of the post):
WHY DID I PUT A MEXICAN FLAG ON THE ROOF TOP OF TRUMP TOWER VANCOUVER, ??????
Because from the concrete pouring, finishing, drywall, taping, wood forming and general labour, Mexicans were there, building it,doing good work, the comments Trump has made about us, did not stop us from doing the high quality work we have always done, in our home country or when we migrate to the US/Canada,MR Trump, we did our best work, your tower here in Vancouver is premium quality, and we were a crucial part of it, not just Mexicans but immigrants as a whole, like your ancestors were, you are not native american, the insults you have said about us, have not changed our work ethics.
You'll remember Ethan Couch was convicted of four counts of intoxication manslaughter, but was not sentenced to any jail time. Instead, he was given 10 years' probation. Couch's defense team, which included psychologist Dr. G. Dick Miller, argued that the teen suffered from "affluenza," meaning his irresponsible behavior and lifestyle were a product of his affluent upbringing and "profoundly dysfunctional" parents.
Part of his parole mandates that he regularly checks in with his parole officer and that he not drink alcohol for 10 years. The latter is being investigated now thanks to a snapchat of Ethan playing beer pong at a house party in Texas.
Hope for the best and prepare for the worst.
That's what people along the path of Hurricane Patricia, the most powerful hurricane ever recorded, are doing as they await landfall near Puerto Vallarta on the Mexican coast.
The storm has intensified to 200 mph winds in just 30 hours, leaving many people to take drastic measures to prepare for the damage.
Astronaut Scott Kelly shared this extraordinary photo of Patricia from space. And it is BIG.
Even meteorologists are freaking out.
#Patricia's pressure dropped 100mb in 24 hours, making it the fastest-intensifying hurricane ever observed in the Western Hemisphere— Mike Bettes (@mikebettes) October 23, 2015
It appears we will soon have the first 200-mph operational hurricane intensity in my 17 years as a professional meteorologist. #Patricia— Nick Wiltgen (@WxNick) October 23, 2015
Stay safe, Mexico!
Sometimes size really does matter.
Enter 52-year-old Roberto Esquivel Cabrera, a Mexican man receiving a lot of attention for claiming to have a 19-inch flaccid penis—the largest in the world.
The man says that due to his "condition" he can't work and the ladies aren't to keen on getting anywhere near his gigantic tool.
Although no one has seen photographic evidence of the claim, Cabrera did share an X-ray of what appears to be a massive willy. Oh, did we mention it is also 10 inches in circumference?
According to Spanish media reports, translated by Huffington Post, Cabrera is being tested at a local hospital as doctors try to figure out what to do.
The man with the current largest peter in the world is Jonah Falcon, measuring in at a measly 13.5 inches.
