But by saying nothing you are cementing that it's ok to have that type of thinking? That can sometimes lead to bullying. My DS is in his first year of school and has now been exposed to the notion of 'boys' colours. He now won't wear or have anything pink. But we talk about how there are no girls or boys colours and that it's perfectly fine for a boy to wear a pink shirt. He wanted his nails painted metallic blue last night and I happily obliged.

I guess most wouldn't have seen a boy wearing a dress as its not the "normal" thing.... they are classed as girl clothes not boy clothes.
My son likes wearing girld clothes as its more colourful and "pretty".
And while it may not be normal both my sons are extremely accepting of things/clothes that differ from cultural norms.
Someones son laughing or teasing another child for wearing the opposite genders clothing....
Mine are the opposite (only one wears girls clothes).
My children LOVE different cultures/different clothing.
If they see someone wearing a hijab for example they will say "so beautiful"
A boy wearing pink... "so cute"
Im so proud that my children are so accepting. All their friends are from other countries and I love that they see everyone as equal where otheres may not.

That, but it goes deeper than that. By 6, a lot of the time, they will verabalise that they feel wrong, that they feel like they should be a boy/girl. It can be quiet psychologically damaging - someone asked the question on BH last year and it got me really thinking about it. What it would mean, how I think I would react etc.

Do people think that some children are born thinking boys who wear pink are lame? It isn't just the way it is, it is what they learn.

It's not uncommon for transgender children to not even want to shower/take off their clothes because they're so uncomfortable with the body they have. There have been cases (backed up my medical professionals) as this happening with kids as young as 2.
So no, it's not just "wearing dresses and carrying handbags"
