So this is what he wore…in his pink shoes
Long sleeve screen print H&M t-shirt
I have been on the hunt since summer for hot pink converse’s for Phoenix. And every time I tried to order them on the Converse website they were sold out. But Mom to the rescue and she found them at Amazon and Phoenix has been rocking them since we went to Savannah.
I’m not trying to jump on the nerdyapple band wagon or anything with putting my son in “girl” shoes. It just so happened to fall at the same time. But I am certainly not opposed to dressing Phoenix in strictly boy clothes. I don’t think I’d put him in a tutu or t-shirt with flowers on it. But he does own two pink shirts and these pink shoes. I don’t discriminate when it comes to fashion.
Have you had a chance to read the post that is ALL.OVER.THE.PLACE? I read it and I agree with her. Especially the part where she says this:
I have used this logic in an argument a lot with some specific (won’t name names) people I know in reference to Phoenix wearing “girl” colors or clothes. My niece has dresses that are blue & green. Those are “boy” colors (whatever that means) but we would never say she was going to end up being a lesbian.
I grew up learning & hearing a bunch of different opinions that I now truly & firmly believe are nothing more than christian scare tactics. The things that we feel we can’t explain & rationalize its easier to just scare people away from it. Does that make sense?
But as we’ve seen with all the recent suicides linked to gay bullying these scare tactics don’t work and its doing nothing but hurting people.
But for the sake of Phoenix I don’t think I would want him to want to dress up like a girl. But only because of his feelings. I wouldn’t want people to make fun of him. That’s all…
So what do you think?
