Sexual orientation and gender identity I think for the most part is innate.  I think there is little parents do to change that one way or another.

How they express their sexuality is a different story, and we do influence in that area.

I don't think parents can influence sexual orientation, but they can certainly screw up a kid's ability to express sexuality in a healthy, happy way.

My LMAO for the day! Thank you!

Moms here on CM like to claim spanking your child turns them into sexual deviants.

I regularly spanked both of mine so they'll grow up have a colorful and exciting time with their partners.

But wht I loved about the book was that it wasn't trying to make parents feel guilty. It came from a place of deep understanding of how truely difficult it is to avoid the princess culture. I love that it talks honestly about the compromises moms have to make in order to provide their daughters with options rather than limit them. 

Quoting Bookwormy:

We avoided all the the Disney princess crap until DD's former best friend introduced her to it. She is now in to it hook, line, & sinker. I felt soooo guilty when I read that book! I really wanted nothing to do with all that! Now when we go to DW, we're even going to the meal at the castle after BBB! Gag!
