    Another example of how society effects our children.
    Actually, this is an example of how parents don't counteract societies expectations and how parents are not trying to change culture.

    Neither of my kids would be allowed to make that comment except that it would bring about a conversation as to their misconceptions about sport/boys/girls.

    My son used to do jazz, tap and ballet until he decided to play golf, trumpet and clarinet.

    He has NEVER been made to feel anything export proud for his efforts.

    Would you consider it acceptable attire if worn in Australia? Sulus are frequently worn in our house and among our friends. I know of a lot of Fijian men who wear them as everyday attire here. And the more formal sulu looks basically like a 'womans' skirt.

    Obviously it's late - it was in response to the soccer comment which is why I quoted THAT post.

    I thought you'd understand the thread moving along like a conversation and the topic changing slightly?

    *IF* you want to stick to the dress comment - I wouldn't bat an eye if my son wanted to wear a dress anymore than my DD wearing pants.

    I love it on bub hub when you have a different opinion or you do something different how everyone jumps down your throat about it.

    Saying the way a 6 year old boy thinks is sexist is pretty low tbh. Dissapointjnh
    I find it disappointing that a whole football team were unaware that a girl could play football. Girls have all the required equipment, last time I checked.

    Cutting in on the transgender argument... I got to page 12 & couldn't read anymore. Did any of you watch the story recently on either today tonight or a current affair (can't remember) ... About the boy who was transgender. I think if you watched the story you would feel differently about the situation BP...

    While it may not be 'normal' to you, it's normal & real for other families to deal with this... And if you saw the mother crying talking about how she just wanted her son to be comfortable & respected in his own skin (as a little girl) ... Then hopefully you would open your close minded views.
