Things people have told me will "turn" my sons "gay" :(
-breastfeeding, although I’ve also been told this will make them grow up “obsessed with boobs” according to the same relative :P
-formula-feeding (I guess no feeding method is safe…)
-breastfeeding too long (Fox was three months old at the time @_@)
-not circumcising my sons (apparently all European men are gay since they aren’t cut?) I couldn’t help laughing at the cousin who told me this one, and when I responded with this she got all flustered and said “lots of European guys ACT gay!”
-letting my children be “too attached to mama.”
-cosleeping. No idea of the thought process concerning that one…
-letting them see me naked (I guess they would never get over the horror of a naked female body?)
-letting my son wear pink. Even pink polo shirts.
-letting my son help me cook.
-allowing my son to use the dress up center at preschool (apparently a lot of the parents forbid the preschool teachers from letting their sons wear any of the dresses, while mine would meet me at the door there in full princess regalia most afternoons).
-signing my son up for ballet classes when he asked.
-signing him up for gymnastics.
-painting his finger and toenails when he asked me too.
-letting him grow his hair to the length he wanted and wear barrettes in it when he wished to.
-not forcing him to play soccer or football when he didn’t want to.
-breastfeeding my younger son “too long” because doing so would cause “psychological damage” according to an older relative. Hmm…my two year doesn’t act too damaged by it in my opinion.
Is it just me, but I don’t see how ANY of these things could possibly affect the gender my sons are sexually attracted to as grown men??
So there’s two kids in my house right now playing with my dog and the younger one asked for the gender. Before I could reply the older one said it was a girl since she was wearing a pink dress but then the other kid was like “but boys can wear pink dresses too!”
