“My Son Is Gay. Or He’s Not. I Don’t Care.”
A woman’s five-year-old son wanted to dress up as Daphne from Scooby Doo for Halloween, so he did, and he looked adorable, as you can see at left. The problems, however, started when he got to preschool, where a cluster of “concerned” moms started acting like big old C words! So his mom took to her blog and wrote an awesome, heartbreaking defense — I recommend it all, although here’s a choice excerpt:
If you think that me allowing my son to be a female character for Halloween is somehow going to ‘make’ him gay then you are an idiot. Firstly, what a ridiculous concept. Secondly, if my son is gay, OK. I will love him no less. Thirdly, I am not worried that your son will grow up to be an actual ninja so back off.
I’m not sure what state of mind you’re in, but if it’s anything like mine, tears ahead!
