You will NOT tell my son that

My son is surrounded by girls/women except his father. I gave birth to his baby brother a few months ago so too small for him to play with. He plays with his two sisters and cousin who is a girl. They play dress up, tea parties, I paint their nails.

I was at mil house where his 2 aunties live. They were painting their nails. My son asked for some, they told him it's for girls only. I told them not to tell my son that. He just wants to be included since there aren't many boys for him to play with while dh is working. His sisters play cars with him sometimes. There is nothing wrong with painting his nails or letting him play with his sisters toys. Dh doesn't mind, as long as I take the nail polish off before we go somewhere. Wwyd?

If he wants to participate, let him, I say. A penis doesn't disqualify him from family time.

Exactly. They said it will make him gay. They were dumb

If they don't want to paint his nails you really can't force them to.  I'm not sure what you think you can do?

I didn't mean you specifically. Sorry. Lol. You asked what others would do. I would let him paint his nails.
