DO you think it will affect their child's future?

My son has 2 older sisters. He has no choice but to play with girls toys. We don't really care, what the kids play with or what they wear (we let them make their own clothing choices). My husband is the kind of guy that if Walter decides that he wants to wear a dress to school then he would too.
Matilda's favourite toy is a stuffed fire truck, Eloise's favourite is barbie, and Walter's favrourite is a hot pink teddy. If they're happy, then we are happy.Happily married mother of five, Matilda, Eloise, Walter and twins Ramona and Bernadette.

I absolutely agree with you. I think in some ways it is sooo difficult to be male in our society. Guys have to constantly prove their masculinity or risk being seen as weak. There isn't quite the same level of pressure for girls to prove their femininity, it is okay to have labels like jock, or be one of the guys and no one questions their womanhood. I won't go into why I think that is because that is more debatable, but I think you are absolutely right in what you said.

The vast majority agreed that it was ok for boys to play with dolls or girls with trucks, or boys playing dress ups with girls clothes and vice versa etc. Some parents don't know when to draw the line. I don't approve of parents raising their children gender neutral to push their own political agenda. They are forcing their own roles onto that child, so how can that possibly be giving the child freedom of choice. That child will grow up to more confused.Just let them be kids.
