"You dress him like a girl." - Page 2

post #21 of 22

My dad mentioned to me that people think DS is a girl at the park sometimes because of his amber necklace and GN clothing. He was sharing an observation, not making a judgement (thank goodness). My response was, "Eh, people can think what they want. It doesn't really matter to me if others think he's a boy or a girl. He seems happy enough with the way he looks."

I have pictures from when I was about that age dressed in very obviously "boy" clothes and I turned out fine.  I did ask my mom one time why she put me in boy outfits and she said she just put me in what she thought was cute.  Good answer, I think!  I WAS cute in them!

 

I dress my DD in boy clothes a lot, because they fit her body type better (long and lanky and the girl's clothes are cut short and show too much IMO).  I also keep her hair short for practical reasons.  Oh, and her name is "Charlie".  No one even bats an eye.

 

I don't think the hat is "girly" at all.  Even if it was, your son will not have life-long damage from it.  That's just silly.  Just learn to ignore people.  My DS always wore boy clothes, but when he got to be about age 3 or 4, he decided he LOVED girl things. I just let him play with what he want.  We did get some comments, but oh well.  He's 7 now and still loves Hello Kitty and will wear girl pajamas, even when he has friends over.  If I let people get to me, I'd have gone crazy by now!
