Yesterday I asked DS what he wanted to be when he grows up. He said "I want to be a girl".
DH and I both think that he says this because he's surrounded by women. DH is the only real constant male in his life. All the uncles and male cousins are in California where we are from.
However, I had a friend over at the time that he said this. And she asked me if I thought this was just a sign of things to come. We both vehemently believe that people are born with their sexuality, being gay is not a choice, etc... So what if this is him expressing his desire to really be a girl? He does enjoy dress up, "girls" toys, purses, jewelry... But he also really loves bikes and cars and his skateboard and building blocks. We allow him to dress up in his sister's clothes and play with her more feminine toys.... WDPT?
Let me just say that I want him to be exactly who he is and we will love him no matter what. I just wondered what y'all think.
