Badass Dad of the Day: Nils Pickert’s 5-year-old son likes to wear dresses and skirts — so in a show of solidarity, Pickert started wearing them, too:

Yes, I am one of those fathers who are trying to raise his children with gender equality. I’m not one of those pseudo-intellectual daddies that rambles on about studying gender justice, and then, as soon as the child is born, falls back into the comfortable and clichéd gender roles: he realizing himself through work, she taking care of the rest.
People in their south German town of 5,000 wonder his effort to be a role model is sensible or silly. "Neither," Pickert says. And as it turns out, long skirts with elastic bands fit him quite well. [bothsidesofthegun]
