My son wears dresses, he began picking them off the sale rack at Target when he was about 13 months or so. They are definately easier than pants. This summer he isn't as interested but I still offer them as a choice regularly. He wears lots of pinks and even glitter. Loves my glitter lipgloss and looks sooo cute in it. Bright and shiney and glittery are fun for a youngster regardless of the gender and I think it's so sad when I hear moms saying "you can't do that" and "no sweety, dresses are for girls" at stores sometimes.
In reference to what you were saying Lucy, I found that while a common denomonater that I enjoyed pre-child was being around other queer dyke feminist types, or even just gayhood in general, post-child it became quickly clear that the important commonality was going to be parenting beliefs. I went to some rainbow families picnics and was stunned at some of the parenting styles. I don't know why I thought gay should equal my own beliefs but I did. LOL Now I have with my AP mama friends and my GD mama friends. I wish I knew some gay mama's in my groups, every so oftn a bi one comes through, but I definately feel the shift in priorities in who I want to hang with.
