    Please don't start with assumptions that my child wouldn't be allowed to express themselves and especially don't assume that I or my child don't have good values because I don't agree with a boy wearing a fairy outfit in public. That's just utterly ridiculous!!

    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.

    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.
    I didn't say "research says"...i said "i think"...so no, this is not an evidence based peer reviewed article...it is my opinion.

    I was simply wondering, out loud, that if you have reason that would most likely offend others, then, what types of things are the children going to pick up on? Blue for boys, pink for girls. It's demeaning to be seen as "girly" or feminine. That there's something wrong and bad about wanting to dress in something other than slacks/shorts. And so on and so forth. Was just putting my thoughts out there. No need to get your knickers in a twist

    No worries ... I just thought to make a big call like that it sounded like it would have evidence attached to it but if its just an opinion, no problem

    I guess the main reason that I'd expect people to justify why they don't think their child should leave the house in gender 'inappropriate' clothing, is because that is what the OP was asking about.

    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.

    Put your thoughts out there all you like but don't insult people in the process and don't make assumptions of people you don't even know! Pffttt!
