not letting children express themselves will screw them up when they are older. A child psychology professor at my college let's her 4 year old son wear pink cowboy boots because that's what he wants. let children be who they are and love them for it.

He really looks like a girl. Prepare yourself for when he comes out. He will need you for support.

When I was in college, all the frat boys and jocks used to love to dress up as women and go trick or treating. Of course they are the same ones who would be shocked that the 7 year old wants to dress up like a Disney character.

Hey I dressed my 6 year old up as a fairy wings, wig, tutu dress, It was hard to make him wear his underwear,He love the costume. he had a great time. Did it turn him GAY? naw he was a horn dog then, and stayed one until he got married. @ 45 He's a great father! and besides when his son was young and we got our feet done I had flowers on my polish my Grandson had an American flag on his.. His Father started to say something & I reminded him of his halloween as a Fairy! Let the kid be a princess, because it will look funny if he waits until he's 16!

Disgusting but true! you don't know how many
times i told him that was NOT appropriate!

But what are you going to do he was a boy!
Now he is a man and he is allowed in polite company most of the time!

Gender doesn't matter, if they want to be a princess on the one day of the year it ain't a big hullabaloo, then they should get to be one!

I don't think it matters what a kid wears for Halloween. They can go as Freddie Kruger, so why the big fuss over a boy wanting to be a princess? It is fantasy time.

Normal? I guess kids wanting to wear whatever they want for Halloween are not normal?

Shame on you.

I would let my son be a princess. I would also let my daughter be rambo. Its a costume for Halloween. Ease up. Not everyone is a ghost or a goblin or superman ect. And if anyone questioned that as the child was picking it out. I tell them ease up. Stop projecting your warped sexuality onto my child. He is what he is and I love him. Deal with it. A mother should see the innocents in the child and want to protect that. Not validate busy bodies in front of the child. Called standing up for your child in front of your child. You know example. And kids at that age in a store will want to be at least 6 things before you leave.

For a child of 7....the desire to be 'Belle' for Halloween has nothing to do with sex - it is simply all about 'make believe'...and it is a testament to what an awesome job Disney did on that movie....that the 'female' character was as strong and interesting and admirable as the male character.

I would disagree, it has been documentted that even at very young ages there are people who realized they were born "the wrong sex". I've read several articles where transgender/transexuals/crossdressers realized as early as age 4 that they had inner desires to dress as the opposite sex.

What this REALLY comes down to is two things, either the child indulging the holiday spirit by dressing-up...and/or this is the early budding of a child who is dabbling with his desire to experience dressing as a female.

Plenty of men dress-up in drag and the majority would be lying if they didn't admit there is some kind of kink or energy to it, but that doesn't make them gay, perverted or even trans-whatever. I'm a straight man and a year ago I did the female pirate thing for Halloween, albeit I did it all "butch" with an unshaven face, gnarly dirtbike riding boots and no wig or make-up...but I did wear a skimpy dress and fishnets, it was a hit and the gals especially loved it. Heck, I even dieted for 3 months just like a gal going to prom. Lots of men, at some point, experience this to some degree.

Back to the kid, let him do what he wants...if it's innocent then fine and if he's destine to be any sort of queen it's not like supressing it will solve it, it'll only make it worse actually!
