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.
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.
The mother of the child has not yet commented on the controversy.
What do you think of the shoes? Was the mother wrong for letting him wear them?
