WOULD YOU LET YOUR BOY DRESS LIKE A GIRL?

Say on the Today Show that a mother did an ad letting her 10 year old wear flaming pink toe nail polish. Would you approve of this for your son?

  • So what. Nothing wrong with the ad. And the kid was NOT 10. He was 5.

  • I wouldn't make an issue out of it, I would want my son or daughter to have my support no matter what they chose to wear or who to love,, LOL!

  • My 3 yr old son has his toe nails painted right now. There's nothing wrong with self expression, no matter how out of this world it may be. For all I know, my son is going to be as gay as gay gets, and I'm okay with that as long as he is secure in who he is.

  • Nail polish at 5 more then likely. Girls clothing not a chance. I don't care if any of my boys turn out to be gay and I would support them in that, but they have to wait till they are out on their own to crossdress.
