This is one of the most amazing stories on love and acceptance I've come across in a long time.
Five year -old Dyson Kilodavis would rather dress up as Cinderella for Halloween than a macho super-hero and it's just fine with his family. Cheryl Kilodavis, Dyson's mother authored a book called "My Princess Boy" which Dyson's school now uses as an anti-bullying tool.
Seattle Morning Show A New Day interviewed the Kilodavis family on their experience with having a son who dresses outside of the gender norm and they explained why it's important to accept Dyson and other kids like him.
"I just want him to be happy and healthy and if this is the form he chooses to express himself I'm fine", says Dean Kilodavis. "In the end when he's grown up... no matter what he chooses I want him to say I'm so glad my parents supported me and I'm glad I was accepted for who I am...he knows he has a sanctuary at home and it should be with his parents."
Love it. In one statement Dean Kilodavis has stripped away heterosexism and male patriarchy, other Black fathers should take note.
