Dad doesn’t want his daughter to dress up as SpiderMAN

ALBANY, NY (NEWS10) — Today’s 98.3 TRY social dilemma came from Jodie and it’s about Halloween costumes. Here is his email:

Hi Jaime. Here is my dilemma. My daughter came to me and said she wanted to be Spider-Man for Halloween, and I think that’s great, so I went out and bought her a Spider-Man costume. But when my husband found out he was upset saying that Spider-Man was a boy costume, and if she wanted to be a superhero, she could be Wonder Woman or Captain Marvel, and demanded that I return the suit. I told him it was ridiculous and refused to take it down. I thought the debate was over but lately I’ve noticed him making side comments around my daughter about how she’d make fun of dressing up in a boy’s costume and trying to convince her to go with Wonder Woman and it seriously pisses me off. and upset her. I told him he had to quit, and if he doesn’t stop, he won’t be allowed to do tricks or treats with us. But now I wonder, am I wrong? Should I try to transition my daughter into a female superhero? Hope you can help. Thanks!


I think Jodie’s daughter should be able to dress however she wants. I thought we were past that stuff, but apparently not. Kids just want to have fun. If his daughter loves Spiderman, be Spiderman. We do not care? That’s my point of view anyway. What do you think? Let me know on TRY’s Facebook page.
