    What's amusing to me is no one asks those who are fine with it to justify their opinions but those of us who don't agree with it have to justify the norm?? The irony kills me!!

    Hang on, I didn't make any insulting comments or make any assumptions. So I'm honestly confused by you saying otherwise.

    I think most people have explained their views and rational in their posts.

    I want to know out of sheer curiosity, especially since you said it could be considered offensive. Since you're not going to explain I'm making up my own reasons! ( It's too hard to find a skirt with dinosaurs or rockets on it?)

    I'm in a ridiculous mood right now, so I'm betting I don't!

    The parents who have said they would not feel comfortable with their sons dressing in girls things have also said "each to their own".

    Likewise I have no issue with what they do or don't dress their child in and have no need to know their reasons.

    Children's clothing is not a major parenting issue guys, let's just let everyone participate in the thread to the extent they feel comfortable 😉

    For some reason it's not letting me quote.

    Clothing may not be a major parenting issue but enabling a child to freely express themselves in however format they chose, without fear of ridicule is a very important issue to me. At home they will be encouraged to sing, dance, act, create etc without fear of 'failure' in however format they chose.

    Another important issue for me is to curb the bombardment of societal expectations that my child will be faced in regard to their gender and the way they are allegedly supposed to dress, behave, pursue and be rewarded.

    Unsurprisingly no, I don't have any issues with it! My boy can wear what he likes, when he likes, as long as it's appropriate to the weather

    I wouldn't, but I wouldn't let my daughter out in costumes either (country town- cat heads, snakes, and bull dust. Nothing delicate would survive or be protective enough lol).

    To be honest I probably wouldn't care what the kids wear around the house or at friends houses, but in public I'd try to keep it low key (again small town- busy bodies and prejudiced people are everywhere around here).
