When my dc is old enough to make a informed decision about cross-gender dressing, I will be supportive of that choice. My dd is 8, and I would consider her old enough to make that choice now.
I think my 3yo dd would look adorable in a 3-piece suit!
True, I probably wouldn't go out of my way to but it for her, but I do buy her some clothing from the boys' section--she loves dinosaur shirts, for instance, and you'd be hard pressed to find anything with dinosaurs in the girls' section. And the boys' styles are often simpler and often have more solid and bright colors (I HATE when the only girls' shirts have slogans like "Born to Shop" or "Diva").
Dh, by the way, wears lots of pink and lavender shirts and looks fantastic in those colors.
Even his dad, who has extremely rigid notions of gender, rocks the pink polo shirt sometimes.
