  • Hmm I shouldn't think so. But if they do give him a picture of those male gymnasts to show them! I'd say they were the strongest, manliest men out there with their huge muscles!

  • Not anymore, I think he will be accepted. We have lots of boys on our team, and male coaches-they are awesome.

  • I don't think so at 8. I have an 8 year old boy and I can't see any of his friends teasing a kid about that. I think they would still think it is cool.

  • I'm going to go against the grain here and say that yes, I think he'll be teased. Maybe not by his friends, but it'll be something that someone who isn't his friend can target. But if he enjoys it and it makes him happy, who freaking cares, right? :-)

  • I would hope not, but you know there will always be that 1 bully
