For every nice mommy out there who lets her gender nonconforming little boy dress as Scooby Doo’s Daphne for Halloween, there’s also a mean mommy who refuses to let her son leave the house in the “Gay Justin Bieber” costume he spent months perfecting.
That’s what happened in the town of Surprise!, Arizona, where some 12-year-old punk was grounded by his mom after she deemed his costume “disrespectful.” Parents just don’t understand!
“After throwing a tantrum and getting grounded from trick-or-treating, he grabbed a knife from his room and threatened to kill her,” the Arizona Republic reports. But not to worry, this respectful mom is also no one to f*ck with: she heroically disarmed her obnoxious son and called the police on his ass… and the street remained free of homophobic costumes.
