Picture this. You have taken your 4-year old son out for shopping to buy him a birthday present and he has picked a Barbie doll. How would you react?
And what would you do?
Buy him the doll? Or tell him that guys don’t play with barbies?
I’m sure most of you would do the latter. But Mikki Willis, a resident of Ojai, California, and father of two sons, had a different and, might I say, inspiring take on the situation. His reaction makes us want to salute him out of respect and admiration!
And we quote his words, “I let my boys choose their lives. Choose your expression, choose what you’re into, choose your sexuality, choose whatever, you have my promise right now and forever that I will love you and accept you no matter what life you choose.”
Watch this video to see Mikki’s response and his son Azai’s jumping-with-joy reaction!
Mikki further says on his facebook account: “My job as daddy is to provide a safe playing field for my boys to play whatever game they choose, or better yet, create their own game. I trust that by the time they realize the world isn’t as accepting as mommy and daddy they’ll have such a solid foundation that nothing will shake their stance to fully, and unabashedly be themselves.”
You’re an awesome dad, Mikki!
PS: Gimme that barbayyy!
