I've respected the views of others who don't have a problem with it so I expect the same respect in return. I am answering the OP's question so please keep your judgements about my values to yourself and don't assume to know me because of an opinion I hold!

Why can't those who are not ok with letting their sons out in girls clothes out in public have to justify why they aren't ok with it? Why can't it be just that? Brcause it doesn't agree with the other opinions? Why don't those who find nothing wrong with it automatically buy their kids clothes if the opposite sex? Like if your b out shopping then why not just pick out something from the girls section if you want them to express themselves freely and not have to conform to society's expectations or gender labeling?

Sometimes on here some ppl get flogged for having differing opinions so I don't blame some ppl for not wanting to express their opinions openly on certain topics.

I don't really subscribe to the concept of "girls" clothes and "boys" clothes. Clothes are just clothes - if you can physically wear it (as in if it fits ok) and want to, then why should some arbitrary gender concept prevent you from doing so..?
If I had a son he'd be welcome to wear anything that would be appropriate for my dd and vice versa.

I have one DS and 3 DDs. My son can wear whatever he wants. I buy him clothes from the boy section but I'm partial to any colours for him.
He doesn't like when his older sisters dress him in fairy outfits and doesn't do it himself but he has taken a liking to wearing one of the girls pink crocheted headbands with a flower EVERYWHERE. It doesn't bother me of his dad.

Secondarily, I don't think it is unreasonable to ask someone why they restrict their child from doing something that other people think is ok. If you have good reasons for it, it seems strange to not want to explain them.
