Mum Writes The Best Response To Woman Who Picked On Her Son For Wearing a Dress

A mother in the UK has taken to Facebook to hit back at a woman who disapproved of her son's dress.

Haylee Bazen was at a bus stop with her son Zackary when a stranger thought it was okay to share how she felt about what the little boy was wearing.

Apparently, she didn't approve of the three-year-old wearing a Disney Princess dress.

"I literally couldn't believe what I was hearing when this woman stopped us. She asked me if I was punishing him and if I'd put him in that dress because he'd been bullying girls," Haylee told Daily Mail

"She told me that we should be embarrassed and that boys shouldn't wear dresses but, if anything, she's the one who should be embarrassed."

Haylee later decided to share a sternly worded message to the bigoted woman:

"To the lady at the bus stop who felt the need to interrupt my conversation with my son.

"I am NOT sorry you didn't like how he was dressed nor am I sorry that you didn't like our discussion topic of who our favorite Disney Princess is (Snow White obviously)."

"Zackary is my 3 year old son and he can be who he wants to be.

"Today he was a Disney princess and YES I did send him to school like that. Why??? Beacuse that's what he wanted to wear, because he wanted to show his teachers and friends his Elsa dress, because he wanted to sing 'let it go' for show and tell, because he doesn't understand the gender stereotypes YOU think he should conform to, but most importantly because he is awesome!!

"He plays with cars and dolls, princesses and pirates. He rides his scooter or pushes his pram. He wears zombie face painting or lipstick and if he chooses to wear a dress he can!!

"So next time you see us, dressed as a princess or cowboy, keep you disapproving stares to yourself and unless you want to tell him how great he looks keep your poisonous words to yourself too.
You're the one that should be embarrassed to leave the house not us!!"

Fortunately, we aren't the only ones who think Haylee's response is brilliant.

Her Facebook post has been shared over 26,000 times and received over 16,000 messages of support.

Go Haylee for being an absolutely phenomenal parent!
