    I really really hate people who shame little boys who are doing/wearing something 'girly'. I think it's so childish and pathetic.

    My DS is free to like whatever he wants, I will not stand in his way. He's free to be his own person. Of course, he's already picking up some of society's funny ideas but I hope he can be a rebel like his mum.

    At home playing dress ups with his sister (I dont have a son atm) wouldnt be a big deal really.

    But as everyday clothes to leave the house in, No.
    I have to agree I'm afraid. Call me what you will but I have my reasons and would rather not share so not to offend like so this is love.

    I've never seen a boy dressed girly out in public but if I did, I certainly wouldn't judge it. It's just not for me is all.

    Goodness, I'd hate to think what the reasons are that are so offensive that you can't even mention them. Now I'm imagining all sorts of horrible reasons.

    No no it's nothing horrible at all. I just don't want to offend those who are ok with their boys dressing as girls. Like I said, no judgement for those that do it its just not for me. That's all.

    My DS would often dress up in fairy dresses etc when he was little. He once insisted on wearing a skirt out with Daddy on a trip to Bunnings when he was about 2.5. Daddy was not so thrilled - but sucked it up.
    He appeared at my daughters fairy party in a pink fairy dress (you should have seen the look on my Dads face ) but got changed about five minutes later cause dresses "are too much trouble".

    I never said no and I never made a fuss - its all about role playing and exploring. Now at seven you'll probably find him dressed in his ninja suit zapping you with a nerf gun.

    let him play and have fun...boys should be able to have fun with fun feeling material just as much as girls.

    My DS loved dressing up with his cousin in her fairy and princess outfits and my DD loves dressing up as a builder and playing with dinosaurs.

    I think it will more cause issues if you make a big deal and don't let them...it's jjust clothing and playtime.

    I just can't think of a good, valid, logical reason to not let my son dress in his sisters clothes...?

    What other reasons could there be other than those irrational, nonsensical reasons such as:

    It will turn him gay
    It's too feminine
    He'll get teased/made fun of
    Others will judge me/my parenting/my son
    His dad wouldn't approve
    They're for girls, not boys
    It looks wrong/stupid

    I could go on. But other that those types of responses, I can't think of a single, good reason not to go along with his dressups. And if you're worried you'd offend others with your reasons, well, I'm just more curious of the values your children are picking up on if they couldn't possibly be allowed to express themselves, whilst having fun in a dress.

    Just curious but do you have evidence of this? I'm genuinely curious ...

    To clarify I wouldn't have a problem with my son (if I had one) wanting to play and dress up at home but going out in a fairy outfit ... no, I wouldn't be ok with that with my own child.
