Parents around Australia have rushed to department stores and uniform shops to snap up dresses for their sons, following the ‘yes’ vote on marriage equality.
Mothers and fathers said they were keen to have the correct uniform for their sons, which will soon include a dress, and possibly a bra for older boys. Retailers said they were struggling to keep up with demand.
“School says same sex marriage will mean big changes in the classroom,” Lindy Wilson from Brisbane said. “So I just wanted to ensure my son Hugo was appropriately dressed for term one”.
She said she bought him a range of other items too, to ensure compliance with the new regime. “I’ve bought him a dildo and a gimp costume too, just so he can get ahead on the core year three curriculum for next year”.
