Westsidemommy Posted July 16, 2020 Report Share Posted July 16, 2020 My DS is 8 and really loves his ballet class... he started in September and most of the moms and kids at his school have been supportive. DS has become good friends with another boy who is quite popular with everyone at the dance class. This friend is also 8 but just seems more athletic and self-confident than my son. DS is quite shy and is sometimes teased about being wimpy or too girly. We are all glad that he made this new friend and he is a polite boy with lovely Goldilocks-blonde hair... I have become quite close with his mother too and one day when no one else was around she just happened to blurt out that her son wears girls' underwear... he just finds the panties softer, more comfortable and perfect for when he does ballet. I just smiled when she confessed this, after all, she has an adorable, talented son who everyone seems to like and no big deal really that he should prefer girls' underwear. My DH, unfortunately, is concerned about all this... our DS has been called gay by some bullies in his class starting in first grade and now, of course, we have to worry about the whole stigma of being a boy dancer. DH realizes that DS is lucky to have a friend like this but he just afraid that if DS found out what his friend wears, he would want to wear panties too. How would you have reacted when the mom's friend told us what he wears? Quote Link to comment
