How can we tell him no he can't have Miss Piggy cause she's to girlie. I would never keep him from his Miss Piggy. He loves her. He even went to sleep with her tonight. I hate that people make a big deal out of girl and boys toys. He loves alk the muppets. I will never take her away.

Thank you!! And I won't. He can have her as long as he wants. It makes him happy so it makes us happy.

He is too cute. I agree with letting him have it. Society is too bent on gender roles. Girl toys aren't going to make a little boy gay, just like boy toys aren't going to make a little girl a Butch lesbian.

So sweet.

It freaks some people out because they think a boy playing with a "girl" toy is a sign of homosexuality, or could lead to homosexuality if allowed to continue.  It's not.  As those folks let that kind of wrongheaded thinking go, we'll see less and less of those kinds of comments.  Eventually, a little one having a lovey will just be a little one with a lovey. 

Eventually, all anyone will see is sweet little arms wrapped around a much loved toy and recognize that it's just a lovey.

Quoting myself to add
Even if he did turn out gay, it's not the end of the world. He'd still be your child and still deserves happiness as much as anyone. Just my opinion.

Good for you!! I wish more people were like you!! It does not make a male child any less male to have a doll or in this case a Miss Piggy!!

My almost 10 year old loves Thor.  She would totally wedge her body into that costume if she could.

Quoting Anonymous:

Never take that pig away from that baby...my daughter wore her Thor costume (hammer, cape and all) for two weeks straight. She'd go naked and sit at the washer when I would wash it. She'd wear it to school and even to church. Who am I to say no? She was the cutest damn Thor ever. Cuter than Hemsworth.

I wouldnt take it away either.  He will be over it soon just like any other toy.  My question is, why your mom will give him this particular toy??  

Quoting amy1will:

We did. My MiL said it was to girlie for him. He got it today for his bday from his grandmother.

Quoting TaughtTot:

Then let him have the miss piggy, if he likes it he likes it

My mom didn't. His great grandmother did. And because he loves the muppets and didn't have piggy yet.
