    There would be consequences if I found out my kids were teasing others for their clothes, for any reason at all for that matter. I refuse to raise bullies. And really, kids mirror the beliefs of the people that raise them. The apple doesn't fall far from the tree.

    I completely disagree. And gender benders? good lord Yes kids can be cruel. It's our job as parents though to challenge that and raise children that are tolerant, loving humans.

    By supporting their children’s wish to dress as gender-benders, parents may inadvertently put them at greater risk for taunting. When Harry, the Los Angeles boy whose father gave him a Barbie, was 2, he attended a dress-up birthday party for his sisters’ friend, in costume. One father called him “Little Liberace;” another compared him to an L.A. drag queen. The second-grade brother of CJ, star of the Raising My Rainbow blog, is teased. “The boys say, ‘Why does your brother like girls’ toys, that’s so gay,’ and run from him,” his mother said.

    They're at risk for taunting because parents like you are basically telling their kids it's ok to bully!!!!

    Yeah sorry, of course it has to do with how they were brought up. I was brought up not to do anything of the sort. And I didn't. My son is in the same grade as yours, and he has never been pulled up on any kind of bullying at school. He has been bullied himself though, because he is quiet and sensitive. And easy target I suppose.

    There would not be articles like the one you posted - if everyone was taught to not bully others for how they look or dress. Easy.

    I disagree completely with this BP, they can be cruel and they can judge and this can then be used as an opportunity to teach compassion and acceptance. In the scenario you've shared it completely reflects how they have been brought up, if my DS said something like that he would be quickly put back into line about how inappropriate his comment is.

    I agree kids can be cruel but so far from what I have gathered from some of your posts your child is being raised to see bullying and racism as acceptable.

    It's not a matter of you putting your hands up going "Sometimes it's just how kids are". Because Im fairly sure you're an adult?

    It's not how it works. Children don't teach adults prejudices. How bizarre that you seem to think that.

    I'm shocked you report this in so matter of fact a way. If one of my children said anything like that I would be so ashamed, and I would teach them why it was unacceptable.

    It's children like this who cause all the stress for my son in the first place, more so the apathetic parents who condone it.

    And yes, my son does ballet. Where would the world of dance be without male dancers? Good grief.

    But by saying nothing to your son when he says something like that you're not discouraging it either.

    Genuine question BP - if one of your children started showing signs that they were transgender, what would be your reaction?

    Bullying is massive at the moment incase anyone here has been out of touch with reality in the past couple of years.

    I would never tolerate my son to be a bully. He thinks it is lame for a schoo boy to wear a girls dress.
