Hi Lambjam, I came looking for this thread because of a new article and related conversation I had with my DH yesterday. I saw an article about a teen who had decided that after transitioning to female that he wanted to transition back, but that is really not the point. I mentioned the article to my husband and also mentioned this thread and your tough situation. His thoughts were that you should let yourself be himself at home and out and about, make sure that he knows that he is just perfect as he is but that some people are just stupid and may say mean things but that there is nothing wrong with who or what he is, other people can just be stupid. At 6 he may not be quite ready to make the choice for himself but over the next couple of years he may start get a better understanding.

If your son loved wearing dresses...
Thank you for thinking of us
We are now the proud owners of four Ralph Lauren tops in various shades of pink and purple, as well as blush coloured skinny jeans and hot pink Natives (think Crocs crossed with sandshoes). We also have gorgeous undies and fabulous socks, a pink handbag, pink-trimmed umbrella, and a white fedora with a pink, green and blue ribbon around it.
DS2 seems really happy and comfortable with these things. He has two dresses that he often wears at home, but doesn't seem to feel the need to wear them out now because his own clothes are so beautiful.
And my goodness he's hip. Everyone looks, and it's not just because he's wearing pink... The. Kid. Is. Stylin'.
