Oh. It turns out the child doesn't have a mother.
He has two daddies, and they think it is fine if he dresses like this for Hallowe'en.
The article talks a lot about how "fierce" the nine-year-old child is and how it was his "attitude" that really "sold" the costume.
It wails that one woman actually had the nerve to say on Facebook that it was inappropriate, she couldn't believe a parent would do that to a child. She's sorry if she offends the father(s) or their "friends" but she thinks its wrong.
O what a "bigot."
Frankly, the nine-year-old in full vamp make-up doesn't remind me as much of Cruella de Ville as he does of Brooke Shields in (don't link if you're sensitive) "Pretty Baby."
Isn't it amazing those photos are 100% legal? And that his dad has (or dads have) given permission to have them, not only on Facebook, but on the internet? With his name attached?
