Good for him, but that won't stop the teasing. Unfortunately, it'll probably make it worse.

that was my first thought too. My second thought was anyone who lets their 5 year old tell them how they are going to dress is an idiot.

Kids are cruel, they're stupid, and they're often times, egged on by their own parents. It would serve the parents of this child well to make him aware of that. Tell him he can wear skirts and dresses at home, around his family, but when he's at school, he has to wear pants/shorts like the other boys.

FTA...'To this very day I'm thankful for that woman who stared at us on the street until she ran face-first into a street light. My son was roaring with laughter, and the next day he fished out a dress from the depth of his wardrobe. At first only for the weekend. Later also for nursery school.'

I loved that part.

It's what a good father does, according to Jim.
 
2012-08-30 03:29:43 PM
I believe in equality. Men should be able to wear dresses and skirts in all their ball-freedom glory, and women should be allowed to walk around topless.

And it should be OK to stare at either one.

There was this guy in the late 1800s who wore dresses as a kid.. I think his name was Franklin or something. He turned out to be a total loser.

Also blue is the new pink.

I totally believe this happened, thanks The Mail for keeping us infromed

But not nearly as much of an idiot as someone who would take that away from the article.

And, scottydoesntknow, it seems like the kid has come up with a good response to the teasing, at least, with his, "Hey, if you and your dad aren't man enough to wear a skirt..." bit
 
2012-08-30 04:46:49 PM
he likes skirts cause he wants to be with a woman that wears one. how gay
 
2012-08-30 04:47:13 PM
Good on both of em!

/Dresses are comfy and I love long skirts for dancing.
 
2012-08-30 04:48:23 PM
I can just see it now.

"Your momma wears combat boots!"

"No, that's my dad, and you probably shouldn't piss him off"
 
2012-08-30 04:49:48 PM
My boy wears pants and I'm ever so thankful for that.

/he does like to watch My Little Ponies...

Sure, sure, and a real man takes it doggy-style with no lube. :P

While wearing a dress, how many 5 y/o can the dad defeat to protect his son?
 
2012-08-30 04:52:54 PM
Or, you know, you could just dress your five-year-old in pants like the other kids so he doesn't get teased, because he's friggen five and you can make that decision.

Men were wearing skirts for hundreds of years before pants came along.
 
2012-08-30 04:53:37 PM
Yeah, it was probably the other way around. Junior spies dad donning the crotchless panties, bustier, leather mini skirt, fishnets and stilettos and decides he wants to be just like dear old dad. Later dad can teach him the dangers of barebacking with strangers in the park.

jaylectricity: freedom


celticwarriorkilts.com

There is a land where a mans balls may hang free and clear.

Conventions - Dragon*Con, Comic Con , etc. I let my boys swing with the wind while i'm rocking out with my geek out.

But seriously, good on the Dad for showing unwavering love for his kid. Even if this causes more teasing , the kid knows that he's always got his Dad to back him up. That's way more support than some transgendered adults get from their parents.

None, but at least he respects his son enough to try.

"'After all, you can't expect a child at pre-school age to have the same ability to assert themselves as an adult completely without role model. And so I became that role model.'"

Yeah, you were looking for any excuse you could to resume wearing skirts yourself. Nice try pretending that you're doing it for your kid.

So.. he's a young Brony?


/are we supposed to fist-bump or something.
//ponies with captions amuse me.
 
2012-08-30 04:56:54 PM
I hope that boy is not Catholic. Also, that red dress will cover the blood. Bad idea all around. White dress wont work either as that will just scream "i'm a virgin come rape me".

I would have gone with blue or green.
 
2012-08-30 04:57:43 PM
Does it really matter what your KID wears in public as long as the pedophiles don't get turned on?
 
2012-08-30 04:57:54 PM
The kid didn't buy himself those dresses, dig? Pops already said he wore skirts all the time before moving to that town. Good on him conning everyone into thinking he's doing it to help his kid.
 
2012-08-30 04:58:03 PM
Dad looks and sounds like he was wearing dresses long before that kid was concieved. Spent two years in Bavaria and had plenty of time to observe the strange sexual quirks of the everyday Herr and Damen.
 
2012-08-30 04:58:49 PM
And the bar for the 'hero' tag falls lower and lower and lower...

True. What does that have to do with that being a clever comeback?
 
2012-08-30 05:00:29 PM
The Hero tag is for the kids making fun of the little homo, right?
 
2012-08-30 05:00:30 PM
I hope for everyone's sake the kid is actually gay, otherwise he may not appreciate this much when he's in high school and college trying to get laid.

We're still pretty sure your gay even when you wear a utili-kilt......

But dont worry I support the lobby for making the world a safe and welcoming place for people who want to strip naked and smear themselves with poo and gasoline. Intolerance and open flame will not be tolerated in the new world of tolerance.
 
2012-08-30 05:01:17 PM
Hero tag? Try Dumbass tag.

A good father wouldn't let his five year old son dress like a girl at school or anywhere else.
 
2012-08-30 05:01:39 PM
Sigh, what a failure of a parent. Your not helping your making it worse. Do you fix a leaking sink by saying, it isn't the sink's fault but it should be the kitchen that needs to accept the water better.

Long skirts with elasticated waistbands suit me quite well anyway

Hides everything and has an arbitrarily large waist? If it didn't suite you, you should be worried.

Actually, I'm more curious why they're cruising around town barefoot.

I've met a few guys who wear kilts - and not just the plaid variety from Scotland, but also nondescript solid color varieties that don't look much different from a skirt. I've been told there's a company somewhere here in California that makes them, and I would assume their client base includes a fair amount of men.

In a number of places in this state, it wouldn't raise that many eyebrows to see a man wearing a skirt that didn't look like it was specifically made for a woman. Certain dresses, on the other hand, can look silly even on women.

I didn't mind my daughter picking out her clothes, but I did say no to things I didn't want her to wear. This gave her the ability to demonstrate independence, while at the same time saving me from having to guess what is fashionable for her age and gender. My only rules were they had to be acceptable to her school and no f*cking glitter. It only took one shirt with glitter to realize that all the clothes run in the same machine would also have glitter.

Our 5 year old picks out his own clothes.

Elasticated? Must be a Brit thing.
