mara: (Zoe bitch please)
[personal profile] mara posting in [community profile] shakydismount
I am reliably informed (by my husband) that my mother-in-law is incredibly upset that my son has both "boy's" underwear and "girl's" underwear. She's sure that his classmates are going to see his underwear and tease him for wearing girl's underwear.

In his words: "She's very upset about it and it's all your fault." (Said ironically, I should note.)

My response to my husband was "Yes. Yes, it is my fault. It's also the Dora underwear that got him to actually wear underwear, so she can kiss my ass."

Good grief. There are so many things wrong here, I'm not sure where to start!

As a friend of mine noted (re: her son wearing his sister's nail polish), if the kids are going to tease him about this, maybe we should tell them not to tease rather than criticizing his taste in underwear!!!

Seriously, we got to the underwear aisle and the boys' stuff was almost all superheroes he didn't know and movies he hadn't seen. I did find him some Thomas the Tank Engine and eventually Diego (who he loves), but when asked what he wanted on his underwear, he asked for Dora and Kai Lan. Obviously both of those only come in girl's styles, because no boys like Dora or Kai Lan.

And last, but not least, my son is four years old! When it comes to fit, it really doesn't matter if he wears boy's or girl's underwear, y'know!
