Baby, I was born this way!

I will never understand parents who don't allow their children to be themselves. If a boy wants to play with dolls and wear pink, let him. If a girl wants to play with cars and cut her hair short, let her. It should be their choice. Forcing gender roles on children is bad parenting and it saddens me that this is still an issue!

Here is a photo of me, taken on my fifth birthday. I was so happy! And no, playing with dolls and dressing up as a girl didn't "turn me gay". I was born this way and I'm proud of my parents for allowing me to be myself, no matter what. Please share a link to this post to show your support!

"Girls can wear jeans and cut their hair short, wear shirts and boots. 'Cause it's OK to be a boy. But for a boy to look like a girl is degrading. 'Cause you think that being a girl is degrading. But secretly you'd love to know what it's like... Wouldn't you? What it feels like for a girl."
