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.
