I don't think you can turn a child gay, they are either going to be attracted to the same or the opposite sex and nothing someone does as a parent is going to change that IMO. Its funny how we live in a society that is all about equal rights and fighting gender stereotypes for adults (men can be nurses, women can be carpenters ect.) but when it comes to children girls have to play with dolls and want to be princesses and boys have to play with cars, and want to be fire fighters or police officers and anything else is "gay".

Glad to see some sane people lol.



I was just super excited that my daughter wanted to share with her brother. Never thought that it would cause an issue.

Me and my brothers would switch between barbies and hotwheels, and then we'd have barbie fighting GI Joes. lol. I'm not exactly straight, nor lesbians, but neither of my brothers are gay... that's ridiculous.

Your facebook friends are just dumb, closed minded, bigots. Your son is not going to be turned gay from dress up.

Wtf kind of whack jobs do you know? Lol. My son dresses up all the time. He even went through a phase where his finger and toe nails had to match mine. I dis get a few comments about that when I posted it to fb...but nothing a quick dose of reality didn't fix. Its just clothes/paint/accessories...it won't do anything to him.

I think it's totally cute when kids do that. DD even said the same thing when she put her doll's tiara on DS, she said "bubby pretty" lmao.



He was less than thrilled. :lol:

I think its cute. I dont see how that would turn him gay... I had a neighbor and her boyfriend would not let their son get a play kitchen set for Christmas saying it is gay. I found it ridiculous. A kid should be able to play because thats all it is, PLAY!

Quoting Nymphadora:" This is a photo of my son. He is 4 1/2 months old. Yesterday, while playing dress up with my 2 year old ... [snip!] ... a boy to play princess dress up is wrong? Do you think it will "turn them gay"? Would you allow your son to play princess?"


GASP!!!! How could you!!! No,seriously...you got hate mail over THAT? I would delete every person that said something negative about it.

No, it isn't wrong at all and will not turn him "gay"...if he is then he was going to be if you let him or not. I will let my son play with "girls" toys if he wants to, I will not force him away from it (though honestly, I wouldn't care if he came up to me one day and "Oh, I'm gay" or something any way...). My son was playing with my bracelets so I took a picture, uploaded it to Facebook and people liked the photo and there were no issues...I suppose there are just a lot of judgmental people still in this world though...and not everyone will agree with it, but he's your kid so...whatever? They won't have to "deal with" him being gay, you will...and it wouldn't really affect them, it isn't like its contagious or anything...
