    If I had a son I would never buy him a Barbie doll just as I have never bought any of my nephews a barbie doll.If I had a son and he asked me to buy him a Barbie doll I would explain to him that those are toys for girls and he is not a girl.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

When a teenage girl has her heart broken, her friends rally around her, shed tears of support and love with her, and then go get their nails done in a show of sisterhood. If a 13 year old boy has his heart broken and sheds a few many tears, his friends call him a fag and tell him to man up. We tend to learn our lessons well, but that makes it really hard to connect. Men arent from Mars and women arent from Venus. Hell...those two planets are at least in the same solar system.

    Somewhere in between teaching young men to stop crying or we'll give them something to cry about and turning them into pansies with asthma, peanut allergies, gluten allergies, dairy intolerance and running around wearing skinny jeans covered in face piercings attending My Little Pony conventions there is a middle ground. Its appropriate to teach young men healthy male roles. Hell...its even appropriate to teach young men that are gay appropriate male models. If either of my sons announced that they were gay I would want them to be just who they are...only gay. Be strong, be confident, be naly, and be gay...whatever. Just dont be...this...

    I along with a bunch of friends would blow up our Transformers with M-80's, and I didn't find myself on a sudden and uncomfortable trip to the shrink.

    Ok, if he wanted to blow up barbies with M-80's I might allow it.

He has never even watched the cartoon but he liked the horses. It bothered me a little bit but that is my hangup and chose not to act on it.

    On a related note when it was my 4 year old niece's birthday I went to the store to buy her one of those leapfrog toy laptops. They had a green one and a pink one. I just couldn't bring myself to buy her the pink one. So I got her the green one.

    Probably not.

    I also wouldn't let him wear a princess dress, and I'd tell him why.


    Now if he wanted to learn to cook, that's fine. However stuff that is more clearly cross-gendered, I'd try to discourage that.
