A father, who his young son to get a manicure done after teacher said only girl should do it

A Cal­i­for­nia man took his young son for a man­i­cure and his teacher said, “Only girls paint nails.”

“My son came home from school and the teacher said only girls paint his nails, so today I’m tak­ing him to the nail salon!” said Chris­t­ian Siarhod in a video shared on Tik­Tok on Saturday.

The video, which has already racked up more than 4 mil­lion views, saw Sher­hod’s 3‑year-old son Ash­ton proud­ly exclaim “Pink!” at a West Hol­ly­wood nail salon before tak­ing a seat for a full man­i­cure and pedi­cure. The sit­u­a­tion is displayed.

At the end of the video, the boy shows off his bright pink nail polish.

In an inter­view with NBC News on Tues­day, Los Ange­les Coun­ty teacher Shearhod said his son first became inter­est­ed in man­i­cures around the age of two.

“Since then, we start­ed paint­ing nails together.

Shear­rod want­ed to take Ash­ton and his girl­friend to a nail salon to cheer him up when he went home upset by his teacher’s remarks.

It’s some­thing my son enjoys, and we’ve done it a few times togeth­er, so I did­n’t want him to feel guilty or ashamed,” Shear­rod said. , we want them to enjoy life to the fullest with­out being bound by ‘strict gen­der norms’.”

After school that day, Sher­hord said she talked to teach­ers at Ash­ton’s nurs­ery school.

I just said, ‘You guys don’t say that to Ash­ton and let him do what he wants,’ ” Shearord recalled.

Since the video was shared on Tik­Tok, more than 14,000 users have post­ed com­ments, most­ly in sup­port of the father and son.

“As a teacher, I am so dis­ap­point­ed,” wrote one user. I always tell my stu­dents that there is no such thing as a ‘boy’ or ‘girl’. just what we like.

Anoth­er said, ‘I’m a girl and I work with cars. My broth­er-in-law likes pink. My son loves hav­ing his nails pol­ished. ing”.

While most reac­tions to the video have been pos­i­tive, Share­hod says there were some neg­a­tive com­ments and inap­pro­pri­ate ques­tions. Some users even asked “So he’s gay?”

“He’s lit­er­al­ly 3 years old. He does­n’t have sex­u­al­i­ty yet, so he can’t be gay,” Sher­hod said in a video response. That does­n’t mean I’m going to label him sexually.”

Sea­hord, who has dat­ed a trans­gen­der woman and iden­ti­fies as straight, active­ly pub­lish­es videos about her life on Tik­Tok, where she has more than 900,000 followers.

Most of his videos high­light aspects of his life, includ­ing rela­tion­ships, which he says have made him the tar­get of hate­ful and trans­pho­bic comments.

“You’re gay, kill your­self.” That’s it. “He’s nev­er been so hat­ed,” he said.

Shea­r­aud says he wants to use his plat­form to advo­cate for LGBTQ stu­dents, even though his opin­ions are some­times negative.

“I just want to inspire stu­dents to real­ly be them­selves, with­out filters.
