Would you paint your son's toe-nails if he asked?

Alot of parents fear that if you allow your son put on make-up, etc, it'll make them gay. But their orientation was already decided the day they were born. So it doesn't matter what you do. Paint their nails if they really want it.

  • Yes. I see no harm in it. Doing that will not make them gay, people who think that are just ignorant.

  • My son has asked; he's 4 years old. We decided that silver glitter polish would look super cool. We have yet to get around to doing it.

  • I wouldn't either, I think there are things that are just not right for different sexes. Like my friends daughter wants to go without a shirt in just her shorts like a boy. My friend said no. I think it's the same for a boy, painting nails is a girl thing.

    Says who? Society? Why are there rules for this? It's petty and stupid.

  • No. There are just certain things that are not meant for the opposite sex and I think nail painting is one of them.
