No one questions a little girl in denim jeans and a blue t shirt playing with trucks, but they still guide boys away from dolls.
    couldnt agree more. Bellyfruit will wear DDs clothes regardless of gender

    I was wondering how he squeezed into it, and how he was going to get it off, unless it's just the wings you put on over your arms.

    My brother dresses in dressups for dd all the time, so I wouldn't have even questioned it lol. My brother once wore his gf's bikini and mermaid tail.

    I'm up for anything that gets people to question how their raise their children.

    hopefully that little boy will grow up well rounded, open minded and not limited by what society says he can or cannot do as a man/male.

    Great concept, terrible execution. True gender neutrality would be offering both masculine and feminine and allowing the child to chose.We did a gender neutral nursery 'theme' of safari animals for DS and DD recently chose a dinosaurs bed spread set when she went into a single bed. We have a toy room filled with dolls, teddies, cars, trains, play food, basically boy and girls toys and both children are allowed to just go for it. Provided they attempt to share.

    His own parents are guiding him away from some things and pushing him towards what they want him to do or wear.
