Because Boys have to dress like Boys?

Well, heres a little something from yahoo news:

Five-year-old Romeo Clarke has been banned from a church-run after school club – because he insists on wearing princess dresses.

The youngster has a collection of 100 dresses and eight pairs of girls’ high heels which he likes to wear
every day.

But he was booted out of an after school club at his local church after organisers accused him of ‘confusing’ the other children with his choice of clothes.

Furious mum Georgina has lodged a complaint with the church claiming they are discriminating against her son.

Georgina, 36, who has three other children, fumed: ‘I was so cross when I was told he couldn’t wear dresses, I was speechless. All I could ask was “why?”

‘Wearing the dress is his choice and if it makes him happy, it’s fine with me.

‘This is not a case of my son being trapped in a girl’s body, ­ he’s a normal boy who, because he has three big sisters, likes wearing dresses. What is wrong with that?’

No comment, but a few questions.

  • Is 100 dresses for any 5 year old, a little much?
  • Are kids that easily confused?
  • Could the kid in question just wear school uniform?
  • Has the church been a little heavy handed?

Hopefully for the church concerned this is a storm in a shiny tea cup, which will pass over soon.

  1. lt’s not strange for a little boy to play at dressing up as a girl, most play groups and toddlers will tell you it’s common. But a mother who buys her son a 100 dresses can only be called weird
