A mother has shared photos of her five-year-old son wearing dresses in a bid to encourage parents to be more accepting of their children.
Axar.az reports citing Independent.
Crystal Kells, a photographer from Hamilton, Ontario Canada, says that her son, Cian, chooses what he wants to wear everyday, which 99 per cent of the time is dresses.
"I've always been supportive of his choice to do so," Kells told the Independent.
"I myself was raised very liberally, so I didn't see any harm in him expressing himself.
"Children in todays society are interested in so many different things. In fact I can probably pin point that this all started while trying to find a shirt for my son two-years ago from the movie Frozen.
"I could not find any boys clothes with Anna and Elsa on them. None. Cian really wanted one, so I just got him one from the girl's section at the Disney store and he loved it."
For Kells and her husband, Brian, encouraging Cian to not conform to gender stereotypes was a no-brainer and they continue to support his choices, whether that be to wear a cape and play superhero or wear a dress to school.
In a beautiful essay about her son on Bored Panda, she writes, “I want my son to grow up knowing he has a voice. Grow up knowing he can do and be anything he wants to be in this world.
“This is my son Cian and he loves to wear dresses.”
