Formula One driver Lewis Hamilton is on the receiving end of internet leftists' wrath for telling his young nephew that "boys don't wear princess dresses."
Hamilton recently posted a video of his nephew dressed in full-on princess attire, apparently after receiving the dress, shoes and accessories as Christmas gifts. “I’m so sad right now. Look at my nephew,” the driver starts the video, camera pointed to himself.
"Why are you wearing a princess dress? Is this what you got for Christmas?” Hamilton asks the boy.
The young boy giggles in delight and shakes his head "yes" in response to this famous uncle.
“Boys don’t wear princess dresses!” exclaims Hamilton.
Now, when watching the video post, it seems clear that Hamilton is speaking to his nephew in a playful tone. This was, however, lost on leftists who love to showcase their Moral Goodness by indulging in peals of Internet outrage. Thus, the keyboard warriors went to town:
Let's say the joyless Left is correct insofar as Hamilton is being serious (he's not) as opposed to playful. It would be completely appropriate for Hamilton to help guide a youth close to him who might to confused about gender. Heck, it would be the responsible thing to do. While this might be a harmless phase, if the young boy does not receive the proper guidance, his confusion could compound.
Why in the world would we want to guide a child to a potential life of gender confusion?
The outrage in this instance should not be directed at Hamilton, but to those on the Left working to dismantle the traditional understanding of gender (the expression of the male and female sex), particularly within impressionable youths.
