The dad in question wasn't going to take the criticism lying down though, standing his ground and rightly telling the trolls: "If my kid wanted a Barbie doll I would get it for him." He wrote: "Well, going off of comments I have received both online, and in person regarding my wife and I’s decision to make our SON a kitchen playset and several 'daughter' comments and 'but he is a boy', let me be perfectly blunt. "Fuck you." He continued: "Anytime we go to our local science center, or to the children’s museum, [our son] always wants to play in the kitchen playset area.
