He took DS for a bath. I heard DS crying. I went to find out what the hell was going on. DS was crying because DH wouldn't let him play with DDs play tea set in the bathtub! I asked why the hell he CAN'T play with it and he said because he doesn't like him playing with her toys, that they're too feminine! Then he said ds plays with her dolls and tea sets and it's going to make him gay!
I am pissed! We are going to have words as soon as the kids go to sleep, and I can't guarantee I won't cuss. I'm so fucking mad!
You can't make someone gay. Men grow up to drink things out of cups and take care of their babies, so how are tea sets and dolls girls toys? Thats the same kind of attitude that my husbands family had when he was growing up, that if he did anything that was considered "feminine" to them, he should be punished and called a girl. It didn't make him not like those things, it just made him hate himself for liking those things. So you need to end that talk right now and set him straight, your son should be allowed to play with any toy he wants.
my family is the same way my son wanted some barbie car from a yardsale when he was like 4 it was purple and said barbie...well my family threw a hissyfit over him playing with it my grandma even tried to hide it... yeah i snapped and said he will play with whatever the hell he wants i dont care if its a barbie car to a freaking baby doll yeah i dont hear any more complaints
