A man named Nelson Felippe shared this photo, along with a few choice words about what’s going on in it.
Here’s the entire photo of a subway platform, with some people standing, a few walking, and two girls clearly embracing on the right.
The caption for the photo reads: “I’m not prejudiced. I think people should do whatever they want to with their lives. But I think it’s absurd that I should be forced to witness a scene like this.”
“What people do in private is their business only, but yes, what they do in public concerns me. And I refuse to see a scene like this and consider it normal.”
“They’re challenging social conventions, and that can be dangerous. What if some tragedy strikes, or worse, if someone dies, who’s to blame.”
“What would happen to a child who sees this scene every day? Kids will think it’s normal to wait for the subway on the yellow line. So, don’t act like that guy over there. Follow the example of the girls.”
The photo and Felippe’s message about transit safety (and tolerance) has officially gone viral.
