First off: I'm not a doctor, but I've had some experience with TG people during my hospital clinic rotations, 'kay?
Comment: If your boy wears dresses, plays house and Barbies, and wants you to call him Monica, chances are pretty good he's transgendered. Deal with it as you think best for him/her. Many today would treat such a child as a girl. But making Dad into a neither/nor figure by dressing him in women's clothes is only going to create confusion for the kid and is not going to help the situation. It only blurs gender lines for the child, who should be taught that being either male or female is okay and acceptable. If they want to be progressive and helpful, they might let him/her grow longer hair so as to fit in better in public.

@Listypoos I'll refrain from insults, because you might not be a native English speaker. However, I would recommend you learn how to use a dictionary before you embarrass yourself this way again.

This is a good story. It takes a real man to step out of his personal comfort zone to support his child in his or her harmless wants. Too many men are too afraid to do anything remotely feminine. Why? Because a lot of men are afraid to be like women, because of our society's misogynistic view of what and who women are. For a civilized society, I don't see many that are really civil.
Why shouldn't he support his son? Because of what people think? People are full of excrement. At least the ones who form most of their opinions on what the mass of our culture supposedly thinks. The democracy is a little more than frightening. (I say we burn them to death because they're witches!) I can't wait to not be around people for a while.

Really, Listypoos? 20% of the population is transvestites? The U.S. has 62,000,000 transvestites? Or is that just based on the skewed, bizarre, morally bankrupt society that you live in across the pond over there?

Bottom line: This guy is a bad parent. He needs to not ever procreate ever again so he can't ruin any more lives with his insanity.

"Actually, we didn't have any transvestites in my kindergarten class"

If you had more than 10 kids there, then chances are you had at least 2...

I'm surprised you can remember that far back OldOllie...

Actually, we didn't have any transvestites in my kindergarten class. At any rate, we probably wouldn't have beaten them -- just made fun of them till they ran away crying.

spanerbulb, so is it irresponsible to play chess with your child and support them joining a math or science club?
Make sure they dont take dance or sing or make arts & crafts too.
Any form of expression that doesnt involve sports or toy army men should be avoided.

Silly and irresponsible, we can all probably agree that in a perfect world it shouldn't matter that his boy wears a dress but unfortunately in reality the boy faces the real possibility of being the subject of rather a lot of bullying.

I think he's setting him up for the day he starts school when the other boys will beat the gay out of him.

When I was five my mom had to teach me not to wear a patterned top with a patterned bottom. Kids that young don't have fashion sense.
Anyway if the boy wants to wear a dress I don't care, but I also don't see how the dad is helping.

LOL ya when i was 2 i prolly tried putting on a dress to. then my parents told me that boys don't wear dresses so i took it off and wore some pants.
this kids dad said oh ill wear one to... IDIOT.. the kid aint a cross dresser, hes a 2 year old.. the dad is the cross dresser, using his kid to hide his gayness.

My daughter likes wearing pants so i thought i should probably put some pants on too...

I understand if you demand that your kid dresses a certain way at 5 years old, but dont tell someone its wrong if you think its odd if another parent allows their child to wear what they like, or to dress a certain way for fear of bullying.

5 year olds are definately already developing their own fashion tastes and this is not inappropiate or indecent, so kudos to the dad to support his child and teaching him that it would be the bully that is wrong. i just hope the father gives the son a disclaimer that this will almost surely draw someone to pick on him.

" and it appears that in my "out of bed for 15 minutes and about to head to work" mental state I somewhat muddied my point."

Fairy nuff.... that's usually how my entire day goes.

dickheads will most likely pick on him whether he is wearing a dress or be a common kid with pants, they are dickheads

@ Listypoos - where in my post did I say the kid was homosexual? In the interest of not ranting for pages I deleted a bunch of stuff about how children shouldn't have a sexual identity before I posted and it appears that in my "out of bed for 15 minutes and about to head to work" mental state I somewhat muddied my point.

I stated I have no problem with homosexuality to qualify that my point of view is not coming from that point of view but from the pure behavioural angle.

@ Mysterycat00 - but did your dad dress up with long hair & skirt to encourage you?
That's what's in question here - not the kids behavior, the adults.

I had thought that around age 4 is when children start recognizing discrete differences in gender, but I could be misremembering.

When I was 5 (I'm male) I wore a towel around my waist like a "dress" and a scarf on my head for "long hair" because I have a sister and I thought it was cool that she could swish her hair around and I thought it was cool to swish a "dress" back and forth. By age 6 that phase was long gone and I never in my entire life have had the desire to wear a dress or have long hair or look in any way feminine! LOL! So I agree with what a lot of people are saying. The things you do at age 5 do not define the rest of your life!

Fair play really.... yeah he's gonna get picked on at times, but as long as his dad is also teaching him how to deal with the dickheads when it happens I don't see how this is a parenting fail.

Besides, if he gets a bloodied nose he could totally carry it off in that dress.... he'd have to watch out if he was wearing green though, then it would clash.

@Swash - where in the story does it say the 5yr old kid is homosexual? It says he likes dresses... nothing else. I take it you've not heard the stats that suggest most crossdressers are stright? Would you think your girlfriend had suddenly turned lesbian if she liked wearing your shirt round the house?

Yeah, because a 5 year old child KNOWS what the rest of his life will entail...
