This man asked people on Twitter how they'd react if they caught their son wearing makeup. The responses were unforgettable.

Twitter is the best barometer of the ever-changing winds of cultural opinion. As the dynamics of accepted masculinity and gender roles shift, we can learn exactly how this shift is occurring through social media.

When Twitter user @JuSaSiMPLe_man posted a hypothetical question regarding parental reactions to a son wearing makeup, he expected a response.


But the response received was overwhelming. The since-deleted Tweet garnered a whopping 5.5K replies.

While the Tweet drew some mean comments, the response was overwhelmingly positive, with many of the comments focusing on the quality of the boy’s rather than the fact he was putting on makeup in the first place.

The responses send the message that it’s more important to love your son than it is to hold on to a prejudice. However, people will still not tolerate using the wrong foundation!

A boy of about 10-years-old with a mental disability stole the show at Pope Francis' weekly general audience on Wednesday at the Vatican auditorium. In front of an audience of thousands the boy walked past security and onto the stage while priests delivered prayers and introductory speeches.

The boy, later identified as Paolo, Jr., greeted the pope by shaking his hand and when it was clear that he had no intention of leaving, the pontiff asked Monsignor Leonardo Sapienza, the head of protocol, to let the boy borrow his chair.

The boy's activity on the stage was clearly a breach of Vatican protocol but Pope Francis didn't seem to be bothered one bit. He looked at the child with a sense of joy and wasn't even disturbed when he repeatedly motioned that he wanted to remove his skull cap.
