Dressing modest for child's first day of school
For whatever reason, the pic didn't post.  It truly is worth a thousand words.

Dad is supporting his son's, errr, daughter's first day of school.  How nice. 


Dad sports skirt to support cross-dressing son

Many fathers insist that their cross-dressing sons change clothes before stepping outside—especially if neighbors are starting to snicker. A German dad is quickly becoming an international hero for taking an entirely different approach.

When Nils Pickert moved his family from open-minded West Berlin to a more conservative small southern German town, locals rolled their eyes at his dress-wearing son. His 5-year-old boy became too embarrassed to put on his favorite frocks.

Pickert decided to teach his son a lesson in self-confidence and started wearing skirts around town himself.

“I didn’t want to talk my son into not wearing dresses and skirts,” Pickert told the German feminist magazine EMMA. “He didn’t make friends in doing that in Berlin already and after a lot of contemplation I had only one option left: To broaden my shoulders for my little buddy and dress in a skirt myself.”

A photo of the two dressed like twins (dad in a red skirt and son in a red sundress) appears in the German feminist magazine EMMA and is now spreading like wildfire across the Internet. People are applauding this father for teaching his son that you don’t have to conform to society’s gender expectations. Gawker called Pickert “Father of the Year.”

The cross-dressing pair has caught the attention of people around town. One neighbor stared so hard at the father and son that she walked right into a streetlight. “My son was roaring with laughter,” Pickert told EMMA.

The little guy hasn’t only learned to laugh at his critics. He’s also learned to speak up to them. When kids taunt and tease him, he says, ““You only don’t dare to wear skirts and dresses because your dads don’t dare to either.” “That’s how broad his own shoulders have become by now,” Pickert told EMMA.
When the blind lead the blind, all fall into the pit.

Nailed it.
Wow. This kid and his father are oppressive jerks. To be a woman, you cannot wear pants? Pants are not women's attire, so to cross-dress you have to wear a dress or skirt? How narrow-minded and old fashioned of them.

Poor kid. :(
This is what happens in society when a parent refuses to lead and put up boundaries for their child, they destroy themselves and Daddy is such a gutless wiener that he would rather be a "friend" (with friend's like that who needs enemies) than a responsible loving parent. He doesn't love that kid, letting him become an object of ridicule and destroying his masculinity and soul in the process. Disgusting.  >:(
