QUEER VOICES

The Way This Dad Reacted When His Son Chose A Doll For A Gift Is Priceless

This guy is in the running for daddy of the year!

How would you feel if your son chose this??

We just want to high-five this California dad after watching this heartwarming video in which he described his reaction when his 4-year-old son chose a doll as a birthday gift.

Mikki Willis, who hails from Ojai, California, says he's been sharing videos of himself with his son, Azai, on social media for the past three years. But the latest clip, in which Azai proudly shows off his new doll, in the visage of Ariel from Disney's "The Little Mermaid," that's receiving national buzz, having been viewed over 11 million times since Willis posted it. 

"My job as daddy is to provide a safe playing field for my boys to play whatever game they choose, or better yet, create their own game," Willis wrote on Facebook. "I trust that by the time they realize the world isn't as accepting as mommy and daddy they'll have such a solid foundation that nothing will shake their stance to fully, and unabashedly be themselves."

Azai's response to his dad is priceless -- but we'd be lying if we said we didn't want to react the same way!
