But more importantly, when he's old enough to like something, I won't stifle him by denying it based on colour.
As long as my children are happy and healthy, why should it matter what coloured clothing they wear?
What makes pink a girl colour? Or blue a boy colour? Who made up those rules that you can only dress your children in certain colours based on their gender?
I don't have a son so I'm only thinking hypothetically.
Personally I would let him go for it and see what happens. If he gets teased and it bothers him, then he may decide to conform of his own accord to avoid it. But then the decision has been his own, and he will know exactly why he is stifling his natural style, rather than "Mum says I should".
Mind you, I quite like being a rebel, so it would secretly thrill me if my child was flouting social norms and gender stereotypes.
i would say im a stereotype i accept people for who they are and if thats what they like then go for it but i wouldn't set my sons up at age 6 to be bullied for wearing pink and my son is 6 now and i know if it were he wearing pink he would get bullied
