Daddy's New Dress

Oct 2, 2012 | Posted by: Rick in Kansas | Full story: www.indianexpress.com

One of the most heart-rending articles I’ve ever read is posted online on the wonderful website, The Huffington Post. The writer, Nils Pickert, often wears women’s clothes in public and explains why: his five-year-old son loves wearing his big sister’s clothes. Pickert writes: “It is not OK for anybody to mess with my son about his outfit. Hence I wear dresses and skirts so that any person who has a problem with that and feels the necessity to express his or her resentments can mess with me.”

People with real courage and firm convictions are, unfortunately, the exception.. Most go through life trying desperately to join the herd and be "accepted"; no matter if it means shedding every last vestige of personal integrity.. they are the real failures of this world.

In some places in the U.S., a person can be arrested for crossdressing in public.

This kid is going to grow up to be very angry. His "father" didn't know any better? How about you dress a boy like a boy?

Why would the boy grow up angry? He is the one choosing to wear the clothes and his parents are supporting him!!!

Clothes don't make you a boy or a girl.......they just cover the body!!!!

Clothing selections won't change a transgendered child into one that is not.

I don't know if I agree with the Father's choice, but it's HIS to make, after firsthand involvement in his child's life and his understanding of his child's needs.

How does a child know that he is transgendered? I completely understand an adult making this choice. But, please remember that this is a child.
