FreeThinker Posted September 7, 2013 Report Share Posted September 7, 2013 This video appeared on NBC's Today and it makes me think. My liberal side says it is cool that his parents are so understanding and encouraging, but there is a conservative part of me that wonders if, perhaps, they should try to get a little help from a professional to determine how serious the boy is about this. I want to say, "Good for you. be who you are." I know that I was playing with dolls, among other things, at that age, though I never wanted to be a girl. I do have some effeminate traits and have since I was young, much to the distress of my family, but I wonder if my reluctance to fully embrace what these parents are doing is a result of the years of socialization and training I experienced. Should the boy be encouraged? I know I should scream YES. Still... I wonder. http://www.today.com/video/today/52945750/#52945750 Quote Link to comment
