What would you do if your son liked wearing dresses? One dad in Germany decided to put on a skirt of his own in support his little dress-loving fellow.
When Nils Pikert's now 5-year-old son started wearing dresses, it turned a few heads but was generally not a big deal in their cosmopolitan hometown of Berlin. But when the family picked up and moved to the smaller South German village, all that changed, reports Gawker.
Even though he loved wearing dresses, Pickert's son was too shy to put one on in public for fear of being laughed at, especially by his pre-school classmates. "I didn't want to talk my son into not wearing dresses and skirts," Pickert told the German magazine EMMA (translated here by blogger Steegeschnoeber). "I had only one option left: To broaden my shoulders for my little buddy and dress in a skirt myself. 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."
And so Pickert put on a skirt and strolled around town with his son in tow. One lady apparently stared so hard she walked right into a pole, which they both found to be hilarious. A day later, the little Pickert was back at his dress-wearing ways, first for the weekend and then to school.

So ... would any of you evil homophobic right wing nuts encourage your son to wear a dress if he liked it?
Dude, I just ate breakfast.
So Dad is wearing a skirt because his son likes to dress up like a girl? Tree meet apple.
Oh and look, his son already is doing the limp wrist flit. Yooo hooo.
This story vigorously thrashed a couple of days ago here:
I think I am going to go outside now and shoot something or chainsaw down a tree or maybe change the oil in my truck.
Well, on the other hand, in the OT it was a sin for the son to discover his father’s skirt. Just saying. (Deuteronomy 22:30) - http://bible.cc/deuteronomy/22-30.htm
Dad, you’re doing it wrong. (then there’s something about falling acorns to consider)
I wish I was having mine at the sidewalk cafe in the picture.
Gee, I can’t figure out what this kid’s problem might be—aside from having a father who enables his every infantile quirk and foible.
Dad wants to wear a dress. You could pretty much stop the story there.
And 20 years from now when the kid has AIDS and syphilis of the ***hole the father will blame Bush.
Maybe he could borrow one of those vagina costumes from the Democrats and wear that.
One way or another, they are all in a league of their own.
So now dad has an excuse to crossdress in public. CPS should be contacted since dad most likely encouraged the kid’s behavior for dad’s own ends—leading to the suspicion that dad may have other problems—such as pedophilia.
Encourage the boy to wear kilts.
Exactly. Who bought the kid the dress in the first place? Who put it on the kid? I'll give you one guess.
As a parent, I prefer to serve as a role model for my children, rather than the reverse. I try to model behavior that my children can emulate - behavior that will not define their identities as freaks in the eyes of their peers. I try not to model behaviors that have no positive logical or social features. Apparently this liberal drone thinks his role is to celebrate anything his “little buddy” wants to do, rather than to guide his son as most would expect from the adult in an adult-child relationship.
Sometimes shame and embarassment are good things. Children need to be taught to accept the biological sex that nature has given them.
Parenting FAIL! BTW, why no shoes?
Wow. Maybe the dad could be a role model
in the ‘shoe-wearing’ department; but then,
what envelope would that push?
How much do you bet it is actually the other way around?
Indeed. A kilt is very much a man's garment, and Scottish culture has penetrated Germany, with highland games festivals and Scottish country dancing societies popping up around the country.
“... why no shoes?”
Because they couldn’t find the perfect pair of sassy pumps to match the outfit?!
Years ago Scotland festivals in the US were great, but then they became too big, too commercial, and too expensive.
When I went to one way back when, held on Saturday on a big elementary school playground, they had one insane guy with a really old style gun. Basically a log sliced lengthwise, with a groove cut through the middle, and held together with a few iron clamps. The front clamp had a 5’ long iron leg that was pounded a foot into the ground. It fired, I would guess, an inch-sized lead ball. His target was a bale of hay.
After loading it with a lot of black powder, everyone had to stand a LONG way off, in case the gun exploded, a real possibility.
It knocked him on his rear. I’m not sure if he hit the bale of hay, but he was still looking for the lead ball when I left.
Where is CPS???? Dad is the nutjob, letting his kid wear a dress???? If I told my dad I wanted to wear a dress, he would have either smacked me or put one of my moms on and put me outside to have everyone laugh at me.
Do these people understand the parent child relationship? I wanted to drive when I was ten, my dad wouldn’t let me, maybe the ACLU will take my case.
In my day, the beatings would be bad, that obviously is not the answer but dad now has an excuse to wear a dress and where is mom and why isn’t she suing for custody of their BOY.
No wonder God is long suffering.
And that barnyard animal you posted, has no need of a dress, how about a horse blanket.
Sounds like the kid is being trained.
Where is mom? or is this man the sole parent? Or did he buy this boy and have it grown with a surragate?
why no shoes?
Because the kid didnt WANT to wear shoes. And we cater to every whim.
I guess..this is totally staged.
Clearly excellent parenting.
You got that right..
Like father like son.
