German dad Nils Pickert wears skirts to support his son who likes to wear dresses, international news sites and blogs reported on Tuesday, August 28, 2012.
According to reports, when Pickert‘s family moved to a more traditional village in southern Germany, his son expressed concerns that other kids at school would make fun of him for wearing dresses. As a father who is trying to raise his children with gender equality, Pickert decided to wear skirt to support his son.
“I didn’t want to talk my son into not wearing dresses and skirts. 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,” Pickert reportedly told the German feminist magazine EMMA.
Reports said that now, when other boys want to make fun of his son, the boy simply smiles and says: “You only don’t dare to wear skirts and dresses because your dads don’t dare to either.”
