No, son, I will NOT buy you My Little Pony panties.
I've never forced gender roles onto my kids. They can like and play with whatever they want, and I won't try to stop them. They recently discovered My Little Pony on Netflix, and I haven't said a word about it. But that all changed today. I took my 6yo to pick out some new underwear. To get to the little boys section we had to go through the little girls. He lit up like a kid on Christmas and said he wanted the MLP ones.
No. Just no. I consider myself somewhat of a liberal, but that's just a bit too far for my tastes.
