"manif pour tous" : l'instrumentalisation des enfants, on en parle?

Today, in Paris, there were people protesting against a law project which would allow homosexuals to marry, and, as a consequence, to be able to adopt children in the future. As a journalist said in the media, gathering to protest against an improvement of a minority's rights is an odd concept... To me, it's totally insane, and that's why I wanted to go there to take photos of something that, as a lot of persons pointed out, will hopefully seem offensive and ridiculous in fifty years. I mean, it already does, but sadly not to everyone!

I chose to photograph children because when I showed up, one of the first things that came to my mind was 'how nonsensical is the fact the parents exploit their kids by bringing them to the protest?'.
