  • An unidentified mother is facing a lot of heat after posting a photo of her 5-year-old son, Sam, wearing pink animal print shoes on his first day of preschool.

    According to reports, the mother explained the shoes were for girls but the boy decided he wanted to wear the shoes anyway, telling her, “ninjas can wear pink shoes too.”

    However, in what was meant to be a momentous moment for a young child (his first day of school) people have began using blogs to verbally attack the mom for letting him wear the shoes. pink-shoes-boy-2
    People are arguing that the pink shoes will turn the young boy gay or will lead to bullying. While others, are on the side of the mom arguing that he is only a kid and it is not a big deal.

    1. With any research, one will find that pink was the traditional male color until the 1950s. Why would ANY color be considered gender specific? Some men look VERY sexy in a pink shirt that flatters their complexion. It has taken years for “REAL” men to wear pink shirts (my husband still will not), so why are the ADULTS making this a controversy? I’m sure it wasn’t the other kindergarten children. What was once a non-gender specific COLOR choice (he LIKES the shoes) has been misconstrued into a problem of monumental importance. Spend your time on volunteer projects people NOT on being the kindergarten fashion police!

    2. What type of job interviews have you been on that asks you to justify/explain what was going on in your life when you were in preschool? The kid is five, not twenty-five.

    3. If you think Keith`s story is incredible,, in the last-month my friend’s dad basically brought home $8670 workin a sixteen hour week at home and there best friend’s ex-wife`s neighbour has done this for 10-months and actually earnt more than $8670 part-time from there computer. the advice at this website…..

    4. When the boy becomes an adult and starts seeking employment, will he have to face the fact that one day the burden is going to be on him to explain the photo. The smart thing would be for mother to have a written letter saying it was her idea and not his. She could leave the letter with a family attorney or in a bank vault so 20 or 30 something Sam can carry it around to show prospective employers.
