At the end of the day it comes down to caring what other people think and being afraid. I don't care what other people think about my sons if they choose to wear something society deems "girly" and if people want to judge my parenting based on what my sons wear well that's their issue. If anyone ever dared mention something nasty to my sons I'd stick up for them in a calm, adult manner so he could see that there is nothing wrong or shameful in dressing how he pleases. I'd rather teach my children to be brave and be themselves than to hide who they are for fear of close-minded people teasing them.
Love this pic too.

Because the reality is that ppl out there exist that will cross their paths that they will have to learn how to deal with. It's all good to teach them too be themselves but not everything is going to be okay and la di da all the time.
How would you expect a young boy who says has a free dress day at school in primary school who actually turns up to school in a dress?? What would you think would happen in this instance?

For those that don't like their son to wear 'girlie' clothes/dress ups, would they feel the same if their daughter wanted to wear 'boy' clothes/dress ups such as superman, spiderman, wiggles etc?

I just want to add that I saw some pictures of Shiloh Jolie-Pitt yesterday and she looks like such a happy confident girl! I think she's so lucky to have parents who have let her unconditionally express herself however she wants to!

How I see it is, if my son says "mummy I want to wear a dress today" if I say "sure thing" and he wears a dress then he's learnt it's totally okay for boys to wear dresses.
If I say no, because it's not okay for boys to wear dresses, then he sees another little boy wearing a dress, and he's learnt from me that it's not okay for boys to wear dresses. Then he might tell that boy that it's not okay for him to be wearing a dress.
Most likely if my son wants to wear a dress it's probably not a reflection on his gender but on his innocence. But there is a chance it is, and I want my children to know that no matter what anyone else says, no matter if someone else teaches their kids it's not okay, my children will always be okay by me.

My 2.5 DS has not really asked or is around any little girls to try on a tutu or dress yet but rocks a totally cool pink polo shirt and mauve board shorts! But his dad also wears pink and purple polos and business shirts so to him those colours are not just for girls and I love that!
