Best Dad Ever Supports Dress-Wearing Son by Wearing Skirts of His Own
Nils Pickert’s 5-year-old son prefers dresses to pants. And while he may find himself the butt of jokes and bullying as he grows up in a small town in Germany, he will never be able to doubt his father’s love and support for him.
Praise be to the imperfect magic of Google Translate:
In my case it has to do with the fact that I talk to my son did not want to wear dresses and skirts. Because he has done so well in Berlin, no friends, I had only one option after careful consideration: the shoulders for my little guy to be taking root and myself to wear a skirt. Finally, I can not by a pre-school child expect the same assertiveness as an adult. Quite unprecedented. So now I’m the model.
And so we have had at that time in Berlin Kreuzberg tepid weather skirt and dress days. Long skirts with elastic stand me quite well, I think. Clothes are rather difficult. The Berlin have responded little or positive. Bevel shapes they know abound yes. In my small town in southern Germany that is something different.
Here I forgot sheer Umzugsstress to inform the teachers in the new daycare sure they like but make sure that my son will not be laughed at because of his fondness. A short time later, he has not dared to go with a skirt or dress to the childcare center. With wide eyes and asked me: “Dad, when you pull back on a skirt?”
The translation is obviously a bit buggy, but the gist is basically something along the lines of, “My son likes wearing dresses, even though he is sneered at in our small town. So to support my son and F with the haters, I’ve been wearing skirts too. Because that’s what a bombass, loving father should do. Oh, and we’re painting our nails now, to boot. If ya don’t know, now ya know.”
