If I was that woman I'd ask the other women if her son was their son too, and as soon as they say no I'd be like, alright then why don't you worry about your own kid, and stop concerning yourself with mine.

This story doesn't have anything to do with the other kids in the class. It's about 3 mothers who have taken it upon theirselves to interfere with another woman and her kid.

It doesn't make a single difference if her kid is gay or not, at 5 years old I doubt he knows anything about that. He just wanted to go as Daphne for Halloween. Let kids be kids, if the other kids did make fun of him he'll just learn that's what's gonna happen in today's society.
Well yeah, that's what the mother chose to write about because that's what she experienced. But she didn't get to sit in the classroom all morning and experience what her kid experienced.

I'm assuming that kids made fun of him, because that's what kids freakin do. Didn't you guys go to school?

It speaks to the larger point that if you do something like this, don't be surprised if you get made fun of. You can dream of this utopian world where everyone accepts everyone and everything is gumdrops and sunshine, but that's not reality, and it never will be. You may not like it or agree with it, but that's how it is, so it's up to you how you deal with it.

re: What would you do if this was your son?

Good point Schneed. I mean I honestly can give two shits about someones sexual preference. I may not agree, but what you do is what you do. However, believe me. I play the dozens with my friends and if you're my homie but you are either a homosexual or a lesbian don't feel like you are absolved of this. Now this is a contract that my friends sign but I mean when did it become a thing that we have to agree on EVERYTHING ?

The fact is that this woman let her son dress up as a woman for Haloween. She saw him whe nshe left the house, she pictured how he would look when he said he wanted to go as Daphnie, and I'm willing to bet the farm that she thought of any "reprocussions" that he would deal with. So honeslty, why was she so suprised. Another parent felt that it wasn't the way to go. If these children talk about the boy or laugh at him, shit stop crying and do some push ups. He had better toughen up his skin because it's going to get a lot worse as the years go by.

re: What would you do if this was your son?

i will say that when people give that look like someone just punched them in the gut, because your son is dressed up like a girl on halloween or a white guy is holding hands with a black girl, it really really hits home hard. its unreal how some peoples disgust cant be contained or hidden. c'est la vie to me.

ps - monk, what is the game of "dozens"?

re: What would you do if this was your son?

Here is the one fault I have with the mom, is she put it on the internet and now the whole world is wrapped up in it when it could have been contained to their little world.

Too many parents now a days and it is mainly the moms at fault have to blog every second of their kids life it is sicken and unfair to the children who have no privacy.

Preach. Good topic for the parking lot I suppose, but why'd she feel the need to blog about it? Guess it's just part of her "journal"

It wouldn't be. Point blank. I love my little boy to death, but I was raised a certain way and my son will know what it for females and what is for males. Just not for me. I know this isn't on the same level but if my son started chewing with his mouth open I wouldn't say hey son go on and be who you want to be. I say, Bernard, chew with your mouth closed son. If my son said hey dad I want to dress up as Dora, I'd say no son, You can go as Diego because Dora is a girl and you are a boy. If my son wanted to wear a Redskins Cheerleader outfit either, you want some Skins gear you better rock this sweatsuit or a jersey. My son will be who he will be no matter what I do but as a parent it's my job to steer him in the best way possible as I see it. He, much like I did, will choose which way he wants to go. I wasn't raised to curse but I do. Wasn't raised to burn trees, but I have. Wasn't raised to drink, I just finished having 2 Remy's and a MGD.

As far as the mother, I can't say that I'm proud of her but that's her child and she can do whatever she wants when it comes to him. But if it's my boy, no chance.

And Schneed I agree with you, I would have had a field day with that little boy until he started crying and I got in trouble but I would've taken that L for real. Couldn't have pased up the chance to break out some new material on a little dude dressd as Daphne,....and he had the purple boot covers PLUS the handbag ?
Agree 100%. Everybody's on this anti-bullying kick right now, but you can't fight human nature. As Schneed says, this is the way people enforce social norms. Yes, there have to be limits so that you don't see events like those of the last couple months happen, but overall, people need to be able to handle criticism if they choose to let their freak flag fly. It really seems like the overwhelming minority are trying to force a new set of rules on the rest of us with this bullshit. I look at that pic and think, that poor little boy, nobody's looking out for his best interest. The mom is clearly taking her skewed view of current events and is using her kid to make a statement. Her obvious predisposition to saying that her kid is gay is pretty indicative of that. If what she says is true, and that's a pretty big if, and this little boy requested to dress up like Daphne, guess what, you need to step up and suggest some alternatives and steer him away from a potentially harmful situation (in a non-traumatic way of course). He's five. Plenty of time for him later in life to get involved in political activism if he so chooses. Completely irresponsible parenting in my opinion.

Re: What would you do if this was your son?

Who the hell cares what the kid wears? It's halloween for Christ's sake, its not like he dresses like this everyday. I know grown heterosexual men who go in drag for Halloween.

Sometimes I'm glad that the older generation will stroke out before mine, because some people are absolutely freaking ridiculous.

Yeah, that post was the dumbest I've read in a while. Homosexuality is choice... LOL. One of my employees is the most flamboyantly gay man I have ever met in my life, and it's not even close. Not a snowball's chance in hell he just "decided" to be that way.

This thread has been a good read for me, as a recently married guy planning on trying to have kids in the near future. Thanks to all that have posted.

Well, this is from 2008, but the researchers here seem to find that both environmental factors and genetics played a role in homosexuality.

I'll definitely second that. There have been been too many jackass responses in this thread for me to want to continue this conversation. Who gives a flying **** if the kid wants to wear a woman's costume on Halloween? I'd start getting concerned if he decided he wanted to wear that to school every day of the week.

And it's not the bullying I'm concerned about. As has been mentioned, that's the way it goes, you either suck it up, or do w/e you wanna do. I just want to know why all the other parents gotta get involved in somebody else's business. Would any of the parents here, on this message board, not get pissed if I told them how to raise their kid?
