This is my son, Chester, who is nearly 4. He was invited to his friend Chloe’s birthday party today, the theme was prince and princesses. He asked if he could go as Sleeping Beauty, so I bought him a dress and put a cute little clip in his hair.

We arrived at the party to the following comments from the adults present:
“Oh that is just cruel.”

"Why did you make him wear a dress?"

"Poor little man, what’s your mummy playing at?"

"He’s going to hate you when he grows up."

"No way I’d let my son dress like a girl."

The fact is, Chester is almost completely gender neutral. I let him wear what he wants, be it boys or girls clothes, and he plays with whatever toys he likes. This usually involves him holding tea parties while wearing his pink Minnie Mouse top, jeans and a tiara. The guests are more often than not a mixture of Winnie The Pooh characters, dinosaurs, Barbie, Dora and solders, and they’re usually transported in his favorite fire engine.

When my husband arrived at the party later on, he was subjected to endless ridicule from the other dad’s present about how I must keep his balls in my back pocket because otherwise he would have put his foot down and not allowed Chester out like that. Oh, and by the way, our other son dressed as Ariel. When my husband pointed out that the boys were happy, and the mother of the birthday child made a point of saying how wonderful she thought it was that we allowed them freedom of choice and expression, they then stopped talking about it to our faces and started muttering about us behind our backs.

Interestingly enough, not a single child said a word about their choice of costumes, other than to compliment Chester on his new dress.

Contrast this to my next-door neighbour’s 5-year-old’s experience at school, his favourite colour is pink, has been for as long as he’s known how to say colours. He started school this year. I was talking to him about his new friends at school and he said ‘The girls tell me I’m not allowed to like pink’ 

I mentioned it to his mum, specifically when I saw him coming home from school one day wearing a bright pink coat, she said it’s just made him buy more pink things to show them that he is allowed to like pink. This is the perfect attitude from him, it just worries me how many of these 4 and 5 year old girls are set in the pink=girls mindset already. 

I think his attitude is great and I encourage it, he turned 5 last week and I bought him a set of pink gardening tools but even my Dad has a problem with it, telling me ‘there’s something wrong with that boy’ HE’S FIVE. He can like whatever colours he wants!

I found this extremely trippy, weird supposedly psychological test, where they ask you to tie together these shapes and give them characteristics. 

I just posted a few questions up. As you can see it’s really, really odd and slightly creepy.

At the end of the test they gave you a personality description based on your choices.

the fuck, took this test and its scary accurate like they ask the dumbest questions it makes no sense.

Fucking hell this was weirdly accurate.

Though quiet on the outside, you are often the hidden hero; someone who rushes in when needed and then after the emergency is over fades back into the woodwork. Because of this sense of duty and honor, you can also on occasion be rigid in your viewpoint and unyielding in the face of other ways of thinking. Usually cynical and rarely trusting of others, you maintain a small set of intimate friends. These bonds are stronger than most. You are always grounded in the present moment. Your close bonds can also lead to clique-ishness and a tendency to gossip about those who are deemed less worthy. You are an integrative thinker, collecting data from a wide range of sources and applying it to your worldview. You can become overly task-oriented. In stressful situations you often withdraw from the world to seek peace in contemplation. You often seem cold and withdrawn. Often you will withdraw rather than verbalize your discontent.
