On Christmas day, race car driver Lewis Hamilton decided to lash out at his nephew for wearing a pink dress; a fashion choice he took issue with in an Instagram post shared with 5.7 fans.
“I’m so sad right now,” he says in the clip.
“Look at my nephew. Why are you wearing a princess dress? Is this what you got for Christmas? Why did you ask for a princess dress for Christmas? BOYS DON’T WEAR Christmas dresses.”
Oh dear Lewis. You’ve just opened a can of worms… pic.twitter.com/fpsiNeOZrd

He should take a page from Canadian prime minister Justin Trudeau, who praised his son’s Halloween costume earlier this year — which also happened to be a pink dress:

“That’s fine with us,” Trudeau said at the time.

Well, just another homophobe. How come I’m not surprised by his response. Instead of supporting your nephew, you put him down over a dress, which only shows you’re more worried about your public profile and what someone might say about you. Insults and bullying from your own uncle, what a shame.
Homophobe? Possibly. But this is more ‘heterosexist’ than anything. Straight, cisgender people like Lewis Hamilton don’t understand that gender and fashion choices don’t exactly need to coincide with one another.
@jussie roderick Nope. Homophobic. You display a hilarious ignorance of basic hatemongering and insecurity about gender.
I have to agree with jussie that, unless the little boy is gay, it is not homophobic. However it DOES indicate homophobia might be in the picture…
Putting down your family members… Wow. What a fool.
I would still play with his member even if I had to wear a pink dress to get his attention.
The impersonater is back. reported.
HaHaHa. You think Queerty care about you talking to yourself?!!
look under your bed….
right on Tobi!
Yet another homophobe/transphobe. UGH. I hope his sibling schools him on his BS, and he apologizes.
Lewis Hamilton is gay and in the closet.
Its too bad the little boy didnt ask “since it bothers you that bad why not get me a male cousin to play with so I wouldn’t have to do things like this”. I bet that would have shut her…..er, um, I mean his ass up.
I’m more surprised “race car driving” is still a thing. Round and round and round around the track. Woop woop. So exciting. Lol
Guess what else is no longer a “thing”. Racing car sets for little boys. I had to go on Amazon.com to find one for a little brat who lives a few doors down. Not only racing car sets but also chemistry sets. I couldn’t believe the look on the face of that kid who worked in Toys R Us when neither he nor that late twenty-something mgr had NEVER heard of a chemistry set being sold nor had they ever seen one. They had to do a damn google search to understand just what I was talking about. If anyone wondered why we rank in the twenties world-wide in science and math and have to import doctors and nurses there would be a good place to start.
Vince I raced stock cars as a teenager its a hell of a lot more than going fast and turning left I built the car myself and did very well I in no way you could tell I was a gayboy LOL And BOB I had slot cars as a kid and Gilbert chemistry sets along with solid fuel model rockets and GASP a go Kart with a real Briggs and Stratton gasoline engine !! Kids are missing out on a lot of cool AND educational stuff with there nose stuck in a phone !!
Thanks jhon. Its always nice to hear from a “normal” person. lol
Kids can get sick from playing with chemistry sets, that’s why they’re gone.
Besides, mummy & daddy have better chemicals in their medicine cabinet.
lol. Hamilton is cool and he did the right thing. Boys shouldn’t be crossdressing.
The really sad thing is that at least 4 commenters here who disagree with Hamilton all bring up “homophobia” or gayness in their comments. Why would they do that? Neither the boy nor Hamilton said anything about gay people. This is about a boy dressing up as a princess. So why would 4 Queerty losers immediately link that to homosexuality? The answer, of course, is that they believe in the stereotype that being gay means being a crossdresser or a wannabe girl. This is the enslaved, degraded mentality that LGB people need to resist and overthrow.
You’re an ignoramus and so is he. You seem to forget that the T in LGBT has to deal with being transgender and also that there are many more things which fall under the umbrella of being other including gender non-conformity. This man is a bully and you’re even worse for trying to justify the tool.
God you’re ignorant.
1) The “T” in “LGBT” stand for “transgender.” The acronym, chosen by the gays, is a recognition that transgender people are part of the same community.
2) Studies repeatedly show that transgender behaviour is the best predictor of adult homosexuality. Many, if not most, gay men have exhibited effeminate behaviour as children. This behaviour would likely have continued into adulthood had it not been suppressed by negative reinforcement (e.g. being beat up or ridiculed) during formative years. Indeed, a study showed that many (most?) gay men had forgotten (repressed?) childhood crossgender behavior that their mothers clearly remember. Sexologists are certain that there is intimate correlation between gender identification and sexual orientation but are uncertain about the mechanism.
3) Studies repeatedly show that gay male anatomy and physiology often have more in common with straight women than straight men. One of the most famous is LeVay’s landmark “gay hypothalamus” study where he showed that the INAH-3 was missing in gay men, as it was in straight women. Since his cohort came from decreased HIV patients, observations on lesbians were not made. I was part of a team that attempted to replicate his findings with a HIV-negative population that included lesbians.
Since LeVay, many other studies have shown similar anatomical and physiological cross-gender/orientation correlations. For example, the way we process auditory stimuli. Hall and Kimura have done many studies on this. One of the most fascinating is Hall’s findings that gay men do indeed “throw like a [straight] girl.” Using a grid, he found that gay men and straight women were better at fine movements while straight men and lesbians were more accurate at gross movements, i.e. pitching. This may explain the gay excellence at figure skating and the arts, in general. Not completely though. Part of my old research was about societal factors that influence gay aptitude and ineptitude in sports.
Educate yourself before being so indignant about the linkage between being transgender and gay.
What an epically imbecilic loser you are, Dannypoo. ‘Boys shouldn’t be crossdressing?’ According to YOUR ROYAL WISDOM, o self-loathing homophobic pile of dung? Join the 21st century sometime–IF YOU EVEN CAN!
There is no such thing as “LGBT.” It’s a fiction, a contrivance. Gay people were never asked whether we wanted it. It was imposed by unelected activists, in collusion with transgender activists. LGB people resist, and will overthrow it.
Beyond that, your comments about transgenderism only prove my point. It’s absolutely true that crossdressing has a lot to do with transgenderism. But it doesn’t have anything to do with homosexuality. The loser commenters above didn’t call Hamilton a “transphobe,” or mention transgenderism. They called him a “homophobe” and mentioned homosexuality. It makes no sense. The only way you can explain comments like that is if the commenters implicitly agree with the archaic stereotypes of gay men as crossdressers.
Being a closeted gay or gay-leaning man, or simply being a gay or gay-leaning man who contends with self-resentment and a fragile ego can indeed lead to resenting any male who presents some type of non-masculine and/or non-binary image. Being a “closeted” fem or non-binary guy or trans person or a man who has secret desires for trans people or cross-dressed people can also lead to that type of resentment and lashing out. However, the opposite sometimes happens, where a gay or gay-leaning man who contends with internalized homophobia and maybe misandry tries to connect himself with every other cause or “movement”, so they become hyper-focused on women’s, trans, race, religious, etc. causes in an attempt to remove themselves from male homosexuality. Finally, most men who “cross dress” never identify as trans, or as a woman or has gender altering surgery. I’m saying that there are connections and non-connections all over the place. Everyone is a case-by-case.
It’s important to me to simply not be a sh*t human being. You don’t have to personally support a cause. But there’s no reason to attack or blindly hate people.
Wow Danielle, have you forgotten that it’s the season of goodwill to all (gay) men (women, bisexuals, and transsexuals)?
Lewis Hamilton is NOT ‘cool’. He’s well known to be a self centered, self absorbed, self entitled dick. I love F1 and he is one of the most unpopular drivers of recent times and he’s just demonstrates what a dick he is. There are also lots of rumours about his sexuality!
It’s weird how EVERY time an article comes up which explores effeminacy, men exploring their feminine side or transsexuals you start screaming like a banshee! Why is this I wonder? Methinks she doth protest too much! Is there a secret that you’re trying to hide? That closet full of tea dresses and slingbacks maybe?
Hamilton is a dick, and you just showed (again) that you are too!
Danielle, you say – ‘There is no such thing as “LGBT.” It’s a fiction, a contrivance.’
Then you say ‘…in collusion with transgender activists. LGB people resist, and will overthrow it.’
Simple question – how can LGB people resist and overthrow something which is a ‘fiction’ or a ‘contrivance’?
Get your arguments straight, otherwise you end up looking like a dick and we wouldn’t want you doing that would we?
Yes, ultimately these accusations of homophobia and transphobia because some of us won’t applaud a little boy dressing up as a princess is just another form of gynocentrism: everything in our supposedly patriarchal society must constantly praise and affirm femininity and women. Even in gay male spaces, where men like men and only men for being men, we have to defer to the feminine, celebrate the female. Oh look, how cuuuuute! A boy in a princess dress! He’s defying gender norms! What a hero! ZZZzzz
It’s not about praising anything. I do believe there is a minor assault on masculinity going on. And this obsession with breaking gender norms is often just about indulging narcissism. But you don’t go after a child like that. You just don’t do that.
Danny595 My God, the continued ignorance. Not even an attempt to address the points I made. So transgender has nothing to do with homosexuality? Science and sexologists say you’re wrong. But facts don’t matter to you, do they? See how I cited actual studies? Why don’t you have the courtesy — or intelligence — to do the same? Or at least show some semblance of familiarity with the topic? DUH!
Danny595 Since you seem to care so much about the welfare of the child — that is ultimately what this is all about, right? — I challenge you to provide some PEER-REVISED JOURNAL studies showing the harm done to children allowed to crossdress. Go ahead, I dare you. No, I’m not talking about the Family “Research” Council but a real academic journal. I bet you’ve never even picked up an academic journal. Okay, then search the web and show me just one relevant academic group that agrees with your regressive rant. Every relevant group I’m aware of, including the American Medical Association and the American Pediatric Association, is against you. But again, facts and research don’t matter to you. And for you, it’s not about the child — it’s all about satisfying your personal bigotry. Pathetic.
Danny595 Wrong, so wrong. Part of my graduate work focused on how sexism is at the foundation of homophobia. Your factless rant proves it. First, you never once show why crossdressing is harmful to the individual or the gay movement. If societal disapproval is all you can argue, then homosexuality itself is wrong. As was equality for women and blacks, miscegenation, etc. Do you really want to use cultural norms as moral and pragmatic yardsticks?
I challenge you to tell me what is inherently wrong with a limp-wrist (that wasn’t caused by injury), speaking with a lisp, being a hairdresser, etc. I don’t care if they embarrass you. List why they harm gays and society in general. Tell me why being a male hairdresser is any worse than being a baseball player. Or why crossdressing is any worse than wearing a leather jacket. So why exactly is being an effeminate male a bad thing? THINK about it, you sexist trans/homophobe.
To be fair, he did delete the tweet and apologize.
Yesterday I was playing around with my nephew and realised that my words were inappropriate so I removed the post. I meant no harm and did not mean to offend anyone at all. I love that my nephew feels free to express himself as we all should.
These idiots always apologize when they realize that they’ve pissed people off. If he “loved” it, then why was he mocking it in the first place? Don’t be the fool to accept the lame apology. The original video didn’t get posted by accident. It was purposeful mocking and trying to force people to accept the gender conformity that HE assigns.
Horseshite. See the other response to you. Of course reactionary asswipes always back off after a storm of criticism (except, of course, for MEIN DRUMPF.)
He’s a racing car driver. They’re not the sharpest tools in the shed.
Why doesn’t he complain about girls wearing pants?
His post was ignorant and mean, but you obviously you already know that “girls wearing pants” isn’t the same thing.
How does “Danny” blithely state “Boys shouldn’t be cross dressing “ ?? Why not if that’s what they feel they need to do ?
And surely the negative response by the Uncle is possibly based on his perception that it’s somehiw “girly” or “effeminate “ or “pansy” and therefore it IS a homophobic reaction ? Just a thought…
Who cares what he “feels he needs to do”? He’s a little boy. He might “feel the need” to jump out of the window to prove that he’s Superman. He might “feel the need” to skip out on 1st grade. In a few years, he might “feel the need” to smoke. He has no appreciation of what is harmful and what isn’t. It’s the job of the adults in his life to set him right. Even if you think that Hamilton made the wrong call here, the argument should be that it was the wrong call, not that the adults don’t get to make the call.
Your other point is nonsensical. Obviously, his perception was that it was effeminate and girly. But it does not follow that he is homophobic. Homosexuality and effeminacy are not the same thing. Most homosexual and bisexual males are not effeminate, and the vast majority will never crossdress. The fact that you can’t separate one from the other is an indication of homophobia. Your homophobia.
Dear, dear Danielle, you are a confused little bunny aren’t you?
‘Who cares what he “feels he needs to do”?’ – you obviously do or you wouldn’t feel the need to be screeching like a banshee on this thread! Yet again getting your panties in a twist about a child’s right to express themselves! Anyone would think that this directly affects you, got something you’re hiding?
‘It’s the job of the adults in his life to set him right.’ – true, it’s also the job of his parents and the adults in his life to allow him to express himself without fear of censure. In behaving like a dick Hamilton has now proved that he in no way should be involved in this child’s future. I’m sure this child’s parents are having a rethink of how often ‘Uncle Lewis’ will be allowed to visit!
‘Your other point is nonsensical’ – bollocks – it’s obviously just gone over your simple little head!
Homosexual men love men for their masculinity, their manliness, their manhood. (Otherwise, why not just date women who use strap-on dildos?) This celebration of effeminate behaviors or female affectations in boys and men is a rejection of real homosexuality and the ultimate form of homophobia.
The black homophobe coming out in him like it does all of them.
Like all the white homophobic GOP you worship, and the white homophobic Christian ministers, who need to come out, that you grovel before.
This fool only comes around whenever a story features a minority, and he always has something negative to say. It’s getting boring and desperate.
It’s rather obvious Mr.Hamilton is part of the hyper-masculine problem we must all face in the world. It creates considerable grief for so many people but seems not to occur to those perpetuating it.
That choice of thinking has allowed the abuse of others through sexual misconduct. It is abuse in the hope of gaining power and dominance over others.
Children don’t have the awareness that wearing a certain colour or article of clothing is such a considerable problem, they don’t know it creates anger or disregard, and very honestly, who cares. The bother Mr.Hamilton experienced is and should be entirely his own but he chose to shame his young nephew and create a thought in the child that he had done something wrong. If Mr.Hamilton is unable to deal with his feelings, it should let it hold him back, and him only.
Children don’t know the colour of an individuals skin, or their religion or their sexuality etc etc is something to be discriminated and held again them. My only hope is as Mr.Hamilton goes through his own life and experiences what he is putting on to his nephew that one day he will understand how his actions, what he says and what he does affects others.
Some one should remind Mr. Hamilton that there was a time, not too long ago, when men didn’t have pierced ears and certainly not nose piercings.
“Boys don’t wear Christmas dresses.” says the man wearing earrings.
Thank you, Tobi. Says the homophobe and likely closet case wearing earrings.
That little guy looks a hell of a lot better than that bearded up mugwump of an uncle! What a giant tiny prick!
I’m sure he’ll come around. I mean look how long it took for gay men like him to be accepted (and emulate) for having pierced ears, pierced noses, plucked eyebrows..and who knows what else has been plucked and waxed! His Wikipedia page doesn’t make him sound like a great guy either.
Hopefully, the little guys mother, father or both, let the shaming little homo of an Uncle be excluded from his life until, if it’s possible, he can grow up and be worthy of being called and Uncle.
Lets hope he doesn’t end up like Louis Smith. Now there was a hot guy who could have made a fortune touring with other gay gymnasts during the days when he still had a hot, tight body. Seriously people scoured the internet looking for the perfect butt shot of him doing gymnastics but he insisted he wasn’t gay. Now its sad to even hear his name mentioned. The last I saw of Smith he was in a j/o video looking stoned, pathetic and desperate for attention. To make matters worse that video didnt even last on the free porn tube sites. No one could bare watching it. Thats just how pathetic he looked in it.
I don’t want to assume he’s anything. Straight men get piercings and get things plucked, etc. But if you grow up constantly getting attention from the opposite gender, if you grow up feeling like being “gay” is something that means you’re lesser than, it can be extremely difficult to self-accept and gain self-comfort, especially if you are gay-leaning rather than 100% homo and/or you put fame or being a public figure into the equation. That can indeed lead to silly outbursts like this.
No matter what he is what he said was trash, and he’s a trash person for publicly going after his family and a child like that.
Donston – completely agree with your comment! Though there are lots of rumours about him!
Another “straight” guy with doubts about his own masculinity projecting. These are the kind of guys to be aware of. They can be dangerous and are stupid.
You’re the only one projecting his insecurities here. You’re just hoping Hamilton is gay so you can be his little bitch, right?
Oh wait, was that uncalled for? Someone on the internet you’ve never met pretending to have insights into your innermost thoughts and drives?
The guy is a douchebag.
SiamSam Wow, the ignorance. You clearly have no idea what homosexuality is and how it is defined by researchers in the field. As someone with an academic background in it, here’s a clue. It is NOT defined by behavior or some nebulous “masculinity” as you call it. It is a mental state expressed by an attraction to one’s own sex that has nothing to do with how the object of attraction behaves. Some gays are attracted to butch men while others like effeminate men. That doesn’t make the man any more or less homosexual. Seriously, look up the Kinsey Scale or better yet, the Klein Grid, and tell me where being homosexual has anything to do with the “masculinity” of either the subject or the object of his attraction.
You can be attracted to masculine or feminine men, and you can act masculine or feminine — and still be a Kinsey 6 homosexual. Sorry, but YOU can’t redefine academia.
Studies have repeatedly correlated crossgender behavior and homosexuality. Indeed, it’s been proven on an anatomical and physiological level. In other words, it’s natural and innate. Why don’t you educate yourself and read the replies I posted above to Danny595? THINK about it.
