Your male child shows interest in traditionally feminine activity and clothing, your reaction?

Dressing a boy in a dress is child abuse.

It's hard to defend yourself when your mom lets you wear a dress. 😂

When he gets bullied for wearing dresses, you'll only have yourself to blame.

You also believe people should be able to be in naked in public so I'm not sure your sanity is intact. Especially around children.

Why would that be so bad?

As long as he doesn't want a vagina I'm fine with it

So the obvious solution is to be naked in public, right? That way we can be certain as to is male and female. Why did our society think of this brilliant idea before! 🤔

I'd be neutral, but positive when I need to be. No need to be negative against who he is.

No. The solution is for adults to make children wear what is acceptable and not make the said children insane.

Yes it is. Mom's are insane.

Neutral.
Just zero fucks given.
I'd let him know that liking what he likes is his business, and advise him on how to handle bullying, but I'd do the same if he liked boyish things, so, yeah, zero fucks.

Indifferent for the most part but Id have concern for how he will be treated by his peers.

Or you do what other have suggested and support him and teach the child how to defend himself both verbally and physically if need be.

When my eldest son started to do that me and his mother tried to move him more towards traditional boy things. We tried putting him in sports and things like that. We were afraid he'd be teased at school for it. Which according to him he was but he said he didn't care. Eventually we just gave up and let him be him. If my younger sons do this then I'll let them enjoy themselves unlike I did with my eldest.

I'd stop it before it got too extreme.

That's the problem with our society. We let clothes define gender. It absolutely should not. For fucks sake it's a piece of cloth. Let your kid wear what they want and be who they are.

Here we go again...

That's another issue entirely. Right now I'm talking about clothing. The solution is stop being immature and let people wear what they want.

Negative. I'm not raising him to be a little girly man. Time for some old-school Doom/Duke Nukem therapy. 'Play these 'till you grow a pair, boy!'. If that don't work, it's on to the Grand Theft Autos (with Hot Coffee cheat :D).

And feminine clothing is not appropriate how?

I would not have a special reaction. As long as his clothes and person are clean and appropriate to the weather, I am fine with it. It is harder for a boy to have non-traditional interests so I would keep an eye out for negativity and if necessary work with him on ways to deflect and defend himself.

Because I come from generations of masculine men and take pride in the male bonding I share with my dad and grandpa. I plan to share that sacred bond with my son someday, if I'm blessed enough to have one.

JennaB Mother

And if he doesn't want to share that sediment? Nothing to be concerned about.

JennaB Mother

Well I'd sure hope you two could still have a bond. No reason to be hurt or upset.

Because if my child wants to chop his dick off, there's something not right in his head

I would be ok with it as long as he didn't want to watch CNN or MSNBC. Then we would have a problem.
