Mental and emotional abuse

When you've done all that? It is emotional and mental abuse. People who claim this as jokes are calling it jokes as a way to back peddle when someone has called them out on their behavior.

I'm sure some of you have seen this already, but just in case....

Nils Pickert's 5-year-old son likes wearing dresses. If anyone thinks that's odd they can take it up with Nils. He's the guy in the skirt.

The German dad has become a role model not only for his son, but for parents around the world, after a photograph of the pair holding hands in red skirts spread across the internet.
"Yes, I'm one of those dads, that tries to raise their children equal," he explained in an essay published alongside the photo in Emma, a German feminist magazine.

All I can say is that this guy is made of pure brillance. Well done :)

So, what do you all think about the article? Also, since it asked two questions in the last paragraph (which I bolded if you clicked on the cut), how do you protect a child from the cruelty of others and how can a child walk away without feeling defensive or ashamed? (I know we had a discussion similar to the first question two entries back when I did the poll, but it's good to discuss anyway)
