Me and my fiance get bombarded with the "You have to cut your son's hair now" comments. Today, that means being a "typical straight male". I started dance lessons at the age of three, and continued for 12 years. Thank you for this post. They brought him home and we were horrified to see our beautiful boy sporting a crewcut!!!! I want them to respect women and their fellow man. It's easier to combat detrimental views when we see the bigger picture and the picture that the other party is seeing.
And, though not a new thought, why is okay for little girls to wear ball caps, and traditionally "boy" clothes but when a boy does it there is some shame involved?

What about all of the women serving their country right now? Social conservatives reacted with outrage. My son regularly had his nails painted, all of our friends kids were girls and so he joined in on lots of so called female activities. Make sure you're familiar with our no-drama comment policy. I don't see what the big deal is. Men's hoodies, sweaters, skate shoes- love! It doesn't bother me one bit.
