The Dummies and others were loving this story full of stereotypes and accusations....but even some of the members of DU were questioning this viral bouncy.


A mommy blogger whose post 'What happened when my son wore a pink headband to Walmart' went viral on the Internet last weekend was Baker Acted after making suicidal comments to deputies Monday, according to a Lake County Sheriff's Office report obtained by the Orlando Sentinel.

On Aug. 2, the blog post, written under the byline Katie Vyktoriah, was published on the Huffington Post website and quickly went viral.

The Sheriff's Office report identified the blogger as Kathleen Carpenter. In the blog, the author wrote that her two-year-old son had worn a pink headband in a Central Florida Walmart store, and a man approached her and yelled out, "That's a boy?!" according to the post. Here's what the author wrote next:


"With no notice, the man stepped forward, grabbed the headband off of Dexter's head and threw it to the bottom of our shopping cart. He then cuffed Dexter around the side of his head (not hard, but that is not the point) and said with a big laugh, 'You'll thank me later, little man!'"

Then according to the post, the man hurled a homophobic epithet at her toddler.

She also had a facebook page that appears to be pulled.

Little Dexter may still grow up to thank the guy. That's the kind of stuff we get Big Brothers to do with little boys who don't have dads. Hang out, be a positive role model, mock wrestle with his head, all that fun guy stuff.


I have no problem with the pink headband, but a mom who deliberately puts one on her son to see what people in public will do about it is a bit warped.

If the kid had chose the headband, it would be different. But mom is looking for problems.

Wow. An obvious bouncy makes it all the way to the Huff-n-Puff. That's pretty funny.


"And this burly, sweating redneck jumped out of the bushes in outside lawn and garden and cast my son's headband to the bottom of our shopping cart! It was devastating!"

It's nice to get vindication once in a while. The fact that the Huffpo got snookered makes me very happy. :smile-new:

The mother made up the entire story to try and gain support from the GLBT community.


Mom who blogged about son, 2, being bullied for wearing a pink headband at Walmart is self-confessed 'pathological liar' accused of making up story

I realize that Walmart has no interest in getting involved in this, but I would love to see this woman humiliated by security video showing nothing but vegetables in the produce section.
