Dad Who Wears Skirts in Solidarity With Dress-Wearing Son: Awesome or Over the Top?

by at . Comments

When it comes to supporting his son, German dad Nils Pickert goes the extra mile.

Even if that means wearing women's clothes (including nail polish) to help a 5-year-old feel good about going out in dresses and skirts, as he often does.

Why does the young boy even prefer dresses and skirts? It's not clear, but this is part of Pickert's point - standing in solidarity with him, no matter the fallout.

Check out this picture of the two making the Internet rounds:

Dad Who Wears Skirts

The image of dad in a long, red skirt walking alongside his son in a spaghetti-strap dress no doubt inspired a hundred sideways looks in Germany that day, but the feedback has largely been positive since the image went viral.

To Pickert, it's all about the show, don't tell attitude.

He says if his son's unorthodox dress choices are seen as "everybody's business," it's his "job to be the role model my son needs" and set an example not just for youth, but for parents, too. What do you think? Does he succeed?
