A young mother stands defiant in the face of huge criticism via social media. She takes pride in her 5-year-old son wearing dresses and shares the pictures via social media.
Crystal Kells is a proud mother to a 5-year-old son.
Many people have praised the professional photos taken and shared of the little boy.
However, there’s a huge group of people who are suitably unimpressed.
The reason for the controversy is that Crystal’s son, Cian, is often photographed wearing dresses.
In fact, the young mother seemingly has a portfolio of pics showing off her son in a wide array of female garments.
She recently wrote an inspiring column shedding light on her decision to share the cross-dressing images.
Crystal revealed her son initially asked her if he could try on 1 of her dresses at the age of 4.
She agreed and he loved it so much that he continuously asked her if he could wear other ones as well.
According to her, Cian isn’t gay or transgender but she doesn’t believe in restricting him to conform to society’s beliefs.
Crystal says she wants her son to grow up being happy and to be confident in his own voice.
