Apparently Buying His Son A Mermaid And Broadcasting It To The World Makes This Guy The Best Dad Ever?
Metro- When his son Azai picked one out following a party he was over the moon, and even used the opportunity to promise his kids that he will ‘love and accept’ them no matter what life they choose.
Mikki said that when Azai first chose the doll it ‘didn’t surprise me at all’.
‘Azai is equally fascinated by princesses and robots. One moment he’s all boy, the next he’s expressing a softer, more angelic side,’ he said.
‘For me this behaviour rings more authentic than playing one note all the time.’
Rather than judging his children, Mikki says his job as a dad ‘is to provide a safe playing field for my boys to play whatever game they choose, or better yet, create their own game’.
Don't get it misconstrued, I appreciate this guy's message. Accept your son or daughter for who they are, no matter what path that choose in life. Seems simple enough. Didn't need some dad to sit there in a hot car videotaping his sons and their historically feminine toys to teach me that. However, for someone that seems so gung-ho about letting his children make their own choices, he certainly did a hell of job of putting his kid in a box. I'm pretty terrible with kid's ages, but I am going to go out on a limb and say that child is probably like 7ish. Does a seven year old having one mermaid doll automatically make him predisposed to dick? I understand that sometimes homosexual tendencies exist at a young age, but maybe let him grow up a bit before you go broadcasting it to the internet. Yeah, I get it, this guy didn't actually say that his kid was gay, but he certainly implied it. You don't make a viral video about your kid actively choosing an Ariel doll unless you are making an assumption about his sexuality. I would bet a nice chunk of change that their are heterosexual guys out there with some Little Mermaid skeletons in their closet.
This is the same thing as signing your son up for Little League, and assuming that it's because he is a prototypical male that love sports. Maybe he just wants to get up close and personal with boys in tight pants. Maybe he really ran out that infield single because he was looking forward to an ass slap from a teammate or two when he got back to the dugout. You may think your child is beaming with homosexual flare right now, but you might change your tune when he's sitting in the living room in his underwear and poking around at Ariel's subhuman rack. Maybe he just heard the term "chasing tail" on television and completely misunderstood it. Being an open minded father is a good thing, but that way of thinking shouldn't include an over analyzation of every decision your child makes. If this kid grows up to be gay this Dad is a hero, but if he grows up to straight it won't take long for him to resent his father for airing his most embarrassing purchase to the entire internet. This self proclaimed 'Dad Of The Year' candidate may be progressive, but that doesn't mean he's not presumptuous.
