    Yes, but on the condition that after he's dressed up in his lacy dress, he let his brothers and I spray him down with stage blood. That way he's a dead princess and a living boy, by nights end. Parent hood is all about compromise.

    Hell yea I would. Like I would give a fly fuck what other people think, it's not hurting anyone. And if it makes him happy so be it. I find it ironic that gay men wouldn't be fucking supportive of their child because they choose to be different.

    Where is the irony here?

    How do gay men "choose" to be different?

    Was it always a choice for us?


    You're stupid as fuck. The irony is that we as gay men are different, our whole lifestyle is different yet we ask for equality and acceptance. However, we shouldn't accept the fact that a young boy wants to dressed up as a princess because it's "not gender appropriate" to his role as a male? Just like it's not gender appropriate that we as gay men stick our dicks in another man's asshole?

    You really should change your name because to me if you couldn't even see the similarities between gay men and a boy wanting to dress up as a princess on the terms of acceptance then you really are just muscle and no fucking brains at ALL.

    Yes, but on the condition that he wear 6" stilettos and a butt plug so that he really knows what it's like to be a woman.

    Of course not. Boys should be boys, and girls should be girls, and they dress like it. How else would he grow up to be a "real man"?

    Sure. It's always a good time for a child to learn that choices have consequences. (Grown-ups, too.)

    Depends. Does he want to be a cool princess like Leia or a douchebag like sleeping beauty?

    rofl? Weird question to ask on a gay forum, of course I would. Only shitty parents would answer no to this question.

    Heteronormative society that dictates what a boy and girl can and can't do are the reasons homophobia exists. If you're gay and haven't realized this in your adult life, you seriously need re-evaluate how much time in life you spend on thinking.

    I would not allow it, but only because no son of mine is going to fall for the whole prince/princess lie. I won't allow him to be mind numbed with religion or santa or easter bunnies or tooth fairies or super hero BS or any other society lie that people tell their kids. Sorry, it's unhealthy on any level.

    Kids are so damn mean. Why subject him to being ridiculed when you can gently steer him towards another costume. Don't make a big deal out of this is for girls and this is for boys just say "This pirate costume is so cool and we can make you a hook for a hand." You've saved his ass from being the laughingstock at his school plus you've taught him a lesson about disabilities/different abilities as a one-armed pirate.

    Sure, and if he wanted to dress as a girl everyday Id be OK with it too (though I prefer this not to happen!).

    This is where weird kids come from icon_lol.gif and no, depriving your kid from all that stuff wont help or make them better in any way.

    All these celebrations make kids to use their imagination and HAVE FUN. They dont care about "lies society tells them", they're freaking kids and will grow out of that by the time they reach 10 anyways.

    Oddly, not a single person has mentioned anything about the age of this hypothetical kid. I think my reaction and response would depend an awful lot on if he's 5, 10, or 15.

    At any age though, I think before I let him dress up as a princess I'd sit him down for a frank, age-appropriate talk about what that choice would mean and what could possibly happen as a result. I'd try to find out why he wants to dress that way and how important to him it is. I wouldn't want him to do something that could make him an outcast for the rest of his school years if he'd really be just as happy dressed as Batman.

    After all that, if he still really, really wanted to be a princess, I'd say go for it. And I'd kick the ass of anybody who tried to give him shit about it.

    I actually was running a scenario through my head the other night when I saw kids going around trick or treating. I was running the scenario of me having a son and him wanting to be a princess or something girly for halloween. Came to the conclusion im not really sure what I would do. Yeah I should be accepting of it (considering im gay) but at the same time I don't want my son to be into things guys are into. I know it sounds bad but I honestly would want my son to be straight and not have any feminine tendencies. I mean if he's gay that would be fine too but I still wouldn't want the feminine tendencies.

    Lol sure go for it, considering I'm seeing FB and Instagram photos of friends, friends of friends and random gay guys who dressed up as princesses, ariel mermaids and black/white swans!! Lol WHY NOT?? Maybe deep down in every **Masc/straight gay guys, there's always a Femme *princess Ariel mermaid persona yearning to be free. icon_redface.gificon_redface.gificon_lol.gificon_razz.gif

    ^ This. It's just pretend. And then again maybe not. But why make a mountain out of a mole hill. As a parent it's best to pick your battles wisely. Also, if he is a true transvestite or transgendered person it will rear its head anyway sooner or later. Why make him feel bad about it?

    You could offer to dress like a princess too to stand in solidarity with him (kids less likely to tease), make it more of a spoof and have fun, and bond with your boy. How I wish my dad would have been interested in anything I was when growing up.
