In the 1800's pink used to be a boys colour and baby blue used to be a girls colour. Morality evolves.

Great poll by the way.

The only psychological damage would be the societal pressure placed on that child.

And dressing them that way knowing the world we live in isn't putting undue societal pressure on the child? Seems to me the parent would be doing their children wrong by trying to make a statement vicariously through their children like that.

Don't force gender roles on kids, let them be what they are.

Reece- the child is already psychologically damaged if they feel they should be a different gender than they are. It isn't their fault by any means, but they do need the proper treatment.

"Don't force gender roles on kids, let them be what they are." i.E. If you have a "Y" chromosome you wear boys clothes. Easy peezy.

I notice more transgender children at my child's elementary school vs ten years ago when my eldest child went to school. Has society become more accepting in its way of thinking or are children being indoctrinated through society by questioning their sexual identity?

@greyline: The children, probably not. I don't claim to be an expert on your nation (I don't even know where you're from), but I do think it's implausible for kids to have had sufficient exposure to liberal media at that age to be indoctrinate in such a manner. Maybe it's because of the parents' increasing tolerance of such behaviour.

*indoctrinated

@kingcripple The poll askes about dressing as a transgender. It's totally subjective.
reece says2015-07-06T18:05:05.2877218-05:00
In the 1700's boys used to dress up in dress like clothing. Would you call them psychologically damaged? Of course not because it was socially expected.
FreedomBeforeEquality says2015-07-07T08:42:15.2121689-05:00
But youre saying they were wrong for socially expecting people to wear the clothing of a specific gender. That is the part I dont get. Social expectations are expected, really. Its part of living in a society. Everything else just serves to divide.
reece says2015-07-07T11:14:28.1842975-05:00
@FreedomBeforeEquality I'm not saying that it's wrong but it can obviously be a problem.
reece says2015-07-07T11:16:23.8902392-05:00
@FreedomBeforeEquality I don't know where you got that from?

Parents shouldn't force it on their kids but as a trans woman if my parents would have let me present that way I'd have a lot fewer psychological problems
notasweetheart says2017-06-06T23:13:04.8133291Z
I feel like if your young child wants to wear opposite gender clothes its because they dont know the dfference. So keep it that way. And dont call it transgender.
