>Also: this is a rare example of a grown woman who is more naive than her five-year-old kid.
"Or he’s not. I don’t care. He is still my son. And he is 5. And I am his mother. And if you have a problem with anything mentioned above, I don’t want to know you."
After some discussion it comes out that he is afraid people will laugh at him. I pointed out that some people will because it is a cute and clever costume. He insists their laughter would be of the ‘making fun’ kind. I blow it off. Seriously, who would make fun of a child in costume?
But it also was heartbreaking to me that my sweet, kind-hearted five year old was right to be worried. He knew that there were people like A, B, and C. And he, at 5, was concerned about how they would perceive him and what would happen to him.

> Wow, jeremy b, that is the most uncharitable reading of this piece possible.
> Is it really so hard to believe that there are moms who would make stinky faces at a little boy daring to flout gender norms?
> [regarding an accusation of Münchausen's by Proxy] You're saying that you find equivalency between a child choosing a halloween costume and his mother asking him repeatedly if he's committed to wearing it and then that child attending a gathering wearing said costume while his mother confronts negative reactions from other parents at the gathering... with a parent fabricating medical conditions in their child, often to the detriment of that child's health, in order to gain the attention that parent pathologically needs....
But on the same CNN program, a clinical psychologist, Dr. Jeff Gardere, accused the mom of “outing” her son by posting the photo on the Internet. “With all due respect, whether your child is gay or straight, I think you kind of outed him by putting him in the blog,” Dr. Gardere said.
The mother responded that her son has not been “outed,” because nobody knows the child’s sexual orientation. “First of all, he’s 5 years old,” she said on the program. “He’s made no sexual conscious choice — which I don’t believe it is (a choice) — but he’s made no overtures either way at the age of 5. I feel that people are reading into it in a negative way.”
She said her son simply loves Scooby-Doo and that he and his best friend, a girl, decided to both dress as Daphne this year. “Halloween is a night to dress up,” she said on the program. “You get to be something you are not. He loves Scooby-Doo.”
> Long knives? Really? For questioning someone's rather extreme inappropriate psychiatric diagnosis based on a blog post?
