This has to be one of the best dads ever! He built a gorgeous play kitchen for his son only to have nasty trolls tell him it will make the toddler “gay.”
Reddit user mr sixstringhook posted a great tutorial showing all the steps necessary to turn an old entertainment center into a beautiful, custom play kitchen for a child.
A few nasty people just had to tell the father that he was turning his son “gay” and even called a toddler a homophobic slur starting with F. Thankfully, Reddit moderators removed all of the abusive comments, but the father’s responses remain:
Well, going off of comments I have received both online, and in person regarding my wife and I’s decision to make our SON a kitchen play-set and several “daughter” comments and “but he is a boy,” let me be perfectly blunt.
Fuck you. Any time we go to our local science center, or to the children’s museum, he always wants to play in the kitchen play-set area. He always wants to watch us cook and likes being involved, so we thought this would be a good idea.
Furthermore, if my kid wanted a Barbie doll I would get it for him. If that is what he wants, then that is what he wants. Its his decision what he wants to play with. Not mine.
As far as my comment on if he wants to play with a barbie doll…again, let me stress this. HE IS 2. I have seen him get excited and play with a broom. Ya’ll need to chill. Kids are going to play with what they want, and if you try to prevent them from doing something as harmless as playing with the toy they want to play with, they are going to end up resenting you.
How do you feel about the way this father handled this?
