A boy named Sam chose to wear pink shoes to pre-school. He did it 'cause he liked the shoes. It was an innocent act by a child and, naturally, it caused huge commotion among adults.
Sam's mother posted a picture on Facebook and family members immediately started condemning Sam for wearing the shoes and criticizing his mother for letting him. Family members said it is "wrong" for a boy to wear pink shoes and that "things like this will affect him socially." The mother's aunt chimed in with the canard, "that shit will turn him gay."
