    I would let my boys paint their nails for sure. Any color of the rainbow because I plan on teaching my babies that I will love them no matter how far they defy society standards, and in that light it will teach my girl that being feminine is not inferior or something to be ashamed of. My kids will not grow with “it’s for girls it’s for boys” mindset. They will grow with if you like it do it so long as you harm nobody. I would encourage my sons to get manicures at least clear color to keep their hands nice and soft tho! I would also love if my husband doesn’t give a fuck if I put him a matching color I associate it with strength and manliness to not give a fuck about societies standards and it would show open mindedness 🤤🤤

    The dad is gonna be the one that makes David think nail polish isn’t normal for boys and he’s gonna be his “downfall”
    I feel so bad for all the people struggling with their identity these days because of the people who were raised to believe its wrong. It’s no ones fault really, but I’d love to see a more accepting word❤️

    If I was there I would tell Traci and the other people who were on Traci side.....hmmm....honey I would walk right up to them and tell’em. “Keep your perfect little it’s his life not yours you don’t pick his dissension for him.” Then I would say to him. “ you should be happy for who you are.”

    I’m sorry but this is just stupid and wrong. There’s NOTHING with reinforcing gender norms and stereotypes. You definitely shouldn’t ENCOURAGE ur ten year old son to paint his nails. Try to steer him towards doing more masculine things and then if everything fails then maybe u can start accepting it.

    I know I am going to get so much hate for this but I don’t care. I agree with Tracy. Nail polish is for girls end of story. I don’t care what you think. My son asks to get pink nails, he gets told no, absolutely not. My son asks to get any nail polish he gets told no.

    I used to watch over children a long time ago in our after school program and saw the girls laughing at the boys for playing with dolls and took the girls aside and asked them how they'd feel if boys laughed at them for playing football, and afterwards the girls stopped laughing at the boys. We are human beings before we are genders.
