Sometimes in life you just have to put your foot down and let your voice be heard.
And that’s exactly what one grandfather did after learning that a preschool teacher forced his two-year-old grandson to wear a dress.
In a now viral cell phone video, the grandfather approaches the teacher calmly asking to speak with her about the incident.
But when the teacher refused to even speak to the grandfather about the matter, instead attempting to shoo him away to speak with her superior who the teacher admits wasn’t even involved in the incident, the grandfather let loose.

“First of all I came down here because we don’t do that – the transgender and all that – you know, we don’t do that,” the man said to the teacher, who chimed in to claim, “I don’t either.”
“And I don’t appreciate you encouraging him to put on no dress, for the second day, too,” the man continued. “I don’t appreciate that. And don’t think this is going away. I’m going further with this.”
At one point in the video, the teacher attempted to shrug the incident as no big deal, saying of the grandson, “He’s two,” as if that somehow changed the issue at hand.
After further back-and-forth, the teacher then told the man “I’m sorry you feel that way,” and again attempted to push him away to speak with her superior.
“You should’ve called me before you made the decision to put my grandson in a dress,” the grandfather rightly proclaimed. “I wouldn’t be up here if you didn’t put my grandson in no dress.”
“This ain’t over with, all right?” he concluded as he walked away.
