Also just called my dad and told him to check his emails for a series of links to articles posted here.
Good luck VP, keen to hear how you go with it...

Yep. I hate the gender stereotypes.
Ds has dolls, strollers, play kitchen, a sparkly Dora castle. His favourite color is pink. He also has trucks (including a pink one ), cars and loves playing in a dirt.
He is very gentle with his baby sister, which may or may not be a result of having dolls to "look after".
He is a child. They learn through play. Whatever that play might be.

Honestly it disgusts me that people have a problem with it.
Read the OP to my partner (a man ) who was horrified. To the people saying that it does no harm etc... well yes, I completely agree but my partner wants to know...
what could the possible harm be? Even if you could draw any links, which I find highly unlikely, what "harmful" things could it do? Mean that a boy is more feminine? Make a boy gay? Why on EARTH would those things be bad?

Yip, I bought DS 2.5 a doll a couple of weeks ago as we r trying to get him used to me holding other babies (he normally cries and gets really upset)
Anyway he loves his doll and feeds it etc and he's now ok with me holding babies
I think it's perfectly fine. I played with cars when I was a kid. What's the diffs?
Men will be holding and playing with their real babies one day, better start learning what to do now.

I've got a 6 year old boy and a 2 year old girl. DS had teddies and access to dolls at my mum's house (my old Barbie dolls), as well as cars and trucks etc. DD has had the same access as him, though she's been given more dolls.
I've never had a problem with DS playing with dolls, but he's never been interested. I once bought him a newborn doll in case he wanted to play with it when DD was born....he never once touched it! It ended up in the op shop.

Three boys here and they love nothing more than playing with DD's dolls/dressups/lip glosses/nail polishes. Neither DH nor I have any problems with it.
Boys playing with dolls = learning how to be hands on dads

My 2yo DS is currently in love with his sisters Bahhh-bies, and we bought him a cheapie the other week so he could play along with his sister. He pushes a pram, wears a rainbow fair skirt, cuddles dollies.
My brother used to play dollies with me and dress up as a girl. His favourite colour was pink. He spent the last two years touring as a lead guitarist with an Aria nominated hardcore band. It didn't appear to effect his masculinity in the slightest.

DS had a Dora doll, a pink play set kitchen and I also passed on a pair of new born twin dolls to him that used to belong to me. I never even thought twice about it He is now almost 14 and no longer interested in dolls- there you go, there's your proof- playing with dolls doesn't turn a little boy gay!

DS got a doll and pram when he was 2, they became some of his favourite toys. He especially loved the stroller, he would load it full of hot wheels cars and use it to move his toys from room to room.
