Despite Anderson calling the police, who complimented the skirt, her son no longer feels safe.
‘He wants to know: "Is the man coming back? The bad man? Is he going to shout more unkind things about my skirt? Is he going to take more pictures?"’
Anderson described her son as a child who likes to ‘play trucks’, adding, he also 'likes to do jigsaw puzzles. He likes to eat plums. And he likes to wear sparkly tutus.
‘If asked, he will say the tutus make him feel beautiful and brave. If asked, he will say there are no rules about what boys can wear or what girls can wear.’
Anderson finished the post saying she will not be intimidated.
‘I will not be made to feel vulnerable or afraid. I will not let angry strangers tell my son what he can or cannot wear.
'The world may not love my son for who he is, but I do. I was put on this earth to make sure he knows it.'
