you are not going to be present at every single moment of his life to talk it through with him. Dont you want him to form tolerant and understanding opinions on his own, than having to explain to him each time why it's not 'lame'? It's actually a lot less time consuming to just talk about tolerance and understanding in general, rather than waiting for every single circumstance of difference to occur.

Perhaps its just me but if my children decide to make comments like girls playing soccer for example
I would make the time to sit and explain and take him to watch girls soccer to show him its " normal"

Both of my boys have grown up playing male dominated sports, DS1 plays soccer and DS2 plays football. Neither of them would bat an eyelid at a girl playing alongside them or in another team.
I believe that young children do mimic their parents beliefs, so you do have influence over what your child's views are.

You are completely missing the point BP.
Nobody is telling you to randomly strike up a conversation with him about it. We're saying that you have opportunity to educate him on these matters when he says something yet you chose not to do so.
