I don’t understand the problem people have with little boys wanting to dress up as female characters for Halloween or for Comic Con or, you know, for whatever event requires dressing up as someone. It really is no different from a little boy dressing up as Captain America or Prince Charming because they’re not dressing up as these characters because of what their gender or sex is but because they like the character. It’s as simple as that. If a little boy decides to dress up as Black Widow it doesn’t necessarily mean that he wants to be a woman or that he feels as though he is a woman, most likely it just means that he thought she was fucking cool and the best character in the Avengers movie. Even if he does want to be a woman or feels as though he is one, who gives a shit? There’s this horrible hypocritical attitude going around with parents stopping their children from being who they are because they want to protect them from being ridiculed and from not being accepted. Doing this does not help them. It makes things worse for them. Home should be a haven for all children but when children realize that even their parents don’t accept who they are, that haven disappears. They suddenly have nowhere to be themselves at. And I’m writing this and trying to make a valid argument against parents and people doing this and acting this way but I really can’t think of one more obvious than to flat out say that it’s one of the shittiest things you could ever do to your children. Let your children be who they are. Let your daughters dress up as Iron Man for Halloween and let your sons dress up as Cinderella because you only have a short amount time with them and you should really be trying to make that time as happy as possible.
