Photo of preschool boy dressed as Daphne goes viral

Sarah's 5-year-old wanted to dress as Daphne from "Scooby-Doo" for Halloween this year.

The only problem?

Her preschooler is a boy.

When Sarah's son showed up at a preschool Halloween party dressed in a purple mini dress and red wig, the kids had no problem, but the moms weren't so thrilled.

Sarah, the Missouri mom, took to her blog "Nerdy Apple Bottoms": "My son is gay. Or he's not. I don't care," she posted. It got more than a million hits and 15,000 comments in two days.

Friday on CNN's "American Morning," Sarah tells Kiran Chetry what happened at the Halloween party.  Dr. Jeff Gardere, clinical psychologist, weighs in and addresses whether sexual identity is a factor here.
