So this has been a controversial topic among some other parents I know and has been irritating to me.
I am not a girly girl type and actually have competed professionally against all men as a jockey in my pre mom life. I never really saw anything as boy or girl exclusive and tbh being a girl mom has been trying because EVERYTHING is pink lol (no offensive to those who love it, you do you ❤)
For halloween this year we decided to do a family costume. Naturally my SO wanted to be something cool and so did I but obviously horror is out for her so we opted for Jurassic Park theme. I found an adorable dino for my daughter Talia, which she seems to get a kick out of (loves the tail) yet I've had loads of comments already about how I'm "pushing" boys stuff on her and have an agenda (WHAT?!). That she looks like a boy in it. Perhaps it might have been intended for boys but I'm pretty p/o ed. If I find adorable stuff for her (bibs, socks, jammies, a lil carhart outfit like her daddys, toys, ect) i buy it regardless of a gender connotation. She can pick what she's drawn to but people seem to think I'm trying to make her a boy and comment on it.
Am I wrong here? Is anyone else offended by these choices for a little girl? Any one else here have this problem and how do you address it? Would you use boy/girl products for the opposite sex?
Thanks and happy halloween!!!
