Really BEYOND irritated - it will NOT "turn him gay"
I told DH it upsets me that he's being like that. DH's response is, "Well it upsets me that our son wants to be a girl."
UGH!!! He DOESN'T want to be a girl. He's a boy. He's ALL boy. He just likes pretty things and I'm missing the issue here.
Update: Well, I confronted DH again today. He was worked up and angry over something STUPID (I asked him to take an alternate route because it had less traffic and we were tight on time) and I told him he needs help. I told him he needs to see someone about HOW angry he gets over STUPID things. He said, "Like what?" I said, "Like taking a different road, my having to work when you're off, the fact I expect to get to do homework at home, your son wanting some beads."
He said the beads are for girls and that's why it upsets him. I told him the FIVE year old doesn't understand that and he just wants a collection. His response was that he can collect something boys collect, like football cards.
Needless to say, I gave the boy 5 beads tonight and he was thrilled. He ran all over the bowling alley showing them off and got lots of compliments.
