What do you see when you look at the photograph below? Two girls embracing each other in the open at the subway, right? Nelson Felippe, a Google Brasil employee, posted this photo on his Facebook on Wednesday and it quickly garnered attention from across the world.

He wrote:

Não sou preconceituoso, acho que cada um faz o que quer da sua vida. Mas acho um absurdo eu ser obrigado a presenciar…

Which means:

“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.”

What a clever way to promote safety on the go!
