Dad perfectly shuts down trolls who called his son’s kitchen playset ‘gay’

By Will Stroude

From one dad’s heartwarming reaction to his son’s new doll to another’s touching promise to dress as a Disney princess to match his little boy this Halloween, there are some serious contenders for our ‘Dad of the Year’ – and another’s just joined the ranks.

Reddit user sixstringhook’s son loves watching his parents cook, so when his second birthday came around, he built his boy a homemade kitchen playset complete with a refrigerator, taps and an oven with working LED lights.


But after posting a picture of his incredible handiwork online, internet trolls were quick to brand his son a “faggot” over his choice of hobby.

“You should rename your son Caitlyn,” wrote one commenter, while another wrote: “You are what is wrong with your country… I hope your kid gets beat up at school.”

One person added: “Seems a little gay to me.”

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. He always wants to watch us cook and likes being involved, so we thought this would be a good idea.

“Furthermore, if my kid wanted a Barbie doll I would get it for him. If that is what he wants, then that is what he wants.

“It’s his decision what he wants to play with. Not mine.”
