I woke up this morning, started on breakfast for the kids and flicked on the television to catch up with what has been going on in the world.
Apparently the lead story is about a young boy in the US who went to a Halloween party dressed as Daphne from Scooby Doo.
QUICK. HOLD THE PRESS.......BOY WEARS DRESS.
I mean seriously is this news. It's 2010 and people are talking about a kid wearing a dress to a party.
Is he gay? Is it a transgender issue? Is it right? What age is cross dressing appropriate?
Why does anyone care is the question that I'm waiting for to be asked, but I've decided not to hold my breath in anticipation of it being aired anywhere.
Here's the thing. It's dress up. It means nothing.
It probably hasn't even got any bearing on the lads sexuality, but even if it did then I still fail to see the problem.
If a boy wants to wear a dress then I don't have an issue with it. Why would I?
Same with a girl wanting to wear tousers and sport a crewcut.
Funnily enough she would just be called a tomboy, but a lad wearing clothes traditionally worn by a girl is obviously a line that must not be crossed.
What a sad and pathetic world we live in.
