Considering all of the inappropriate Halloween costumes that have gone viral this year, you’d think a little girl wanting to dress up as Thor would be the least of everyone’s worries.
But no, because the internet is a terrible place where anyone can voice their opinion, even trolls (hell, especially trolls).
A dad was so proud of his six-year-old daughter’s adorable Thor costume, he shared a snap of her outfit to Reddit.
Seriously, how cute is she?!
But sadly, it wasn’t long before someone had to come along and ruin it. One user, who clearly doesn’t understand how human sexuality works, commented: “This is how you create a lesbian. Better counteract now.”
Seriously dude, she’s six!
Fortunately, the dad had the perfect comeback up his sleeve, responding with: “So you think you there is something wrong if my daughter was to grow up to be lesbian?
“As her father all I want for my daughter is for her to grow up, be happy and be healthy, if she grows up to be gay and that makes her happy so be it.
“You really need to take a look in the mirror and think do you want to be that person who tries to somehow in your twisted way insult a 6-year-old who is clearly happy dressed as her favourite superhero?”
And other users had lots of wonderful things to say about the little girl’s outfit.

While OneTrueRuler added: “As a teen I had a lot of male superhero role models. I always wanted to be them, but I never dared dress up as them because I’m female and thought people would judge me. Now I do it anyway, and it’s a lot of fun (and the cosplay community is accepting and very diverse.) So thank you for encouraging/supporting her to do this. 🙂 I wish my parents had been like that.”
Although, the fact that the troll doesn’t seem to have realised that Thor has been a woman in the comics since 2014 suggests he’s not a true fan anyway.
