Looks like Fox wants to promote conformity by clinging to tired old gender stereotypes.

Original Fox article:
http://www.foxnews.com/health/2011/04/11/j-crew-plants-seeds-gender-identity/#content

Discuss Fox, conformity, gender roles, and anything else relevant to this.

You are EXTREMELY WRONG! I have played it. I own an 18W and it would be an awful stereo amp, it's way too bright, breaks up too easily and so on. Secondly, why would a guitar store sell an hifi amp.

They're just overreacting like they always do.

Why do we need a thread on expected behavior?

IN OTHER NEWS

The WBC hates gays!

Saw this on the Daily Show. It's Fox News. Why are you surprised?
Please excuse my godawful username. I was thirteen.

Jon Stewart pretty much summed up my feelings on this.

A guy on Fox actually said she'd have to get the kid psychiatric help, and they bitched and moaned about how this was "celebrating transgendered children" in such a negative tone they might as well have said "She's not even stoning him to death for wearing the garment of a women as forbade by our Lord!"

For me, the 60's ended that day in 1978...

Willies. Fuck the lick and fuck you too.

Hahahaa, just wait until you tell them he isn't the first boy to ever wear makeup. Then they get all quiet all of a sudden, stare at their shoes, and sigh heavily, yearning for boyhood pleasures.

I can't believe people even take Fox News seriously. If they turned it into a comedy show it would be just as successful.

Almost every little boy has his nails painted at some point. I know I did. I had an older sister, older sister's friends, and older cousins.

Seriously. Everybody gets their nails painted.

Same. I'd be surprised if a guy with an older sister hadn't had it done at one time.

I to saw this on the Daily show and thought WTF IS THIS SHIT!!!!!!

Fox? seriously? seriously?

I had an older sister and shes painted my finger nails, she even gave me pigtails a few times, and guess what? I love women just as much as any other straight guy.

Fox is basically a bunch of neo-con right wing over religious morons who blow everything out of proportion.

My thoughts its her kid she should do what ever she wants.
As for the kid he wanted to do it because hes curious as kids are

If it were my kid and my wife did that I would be very upset, but id take it out on the wife, Wouldnt do anything to the kid because hes a kid.

I'd also take him out to do something ultra manly like eat a steak drink some beers and stare at women's asses.

Opens thread.

Opens Fox article



Closes article.

If you didn't have that reaction, something is terribly wrong with you.
#25
*sharp intake of breath*

That article is fucking disgusting.
Well, how about the fact that encouraging the choosing of gender identity, rather than suggesting our children become comfortable with the ones that they got at birth

neither gender is motivated to rank creating a family above having great sex forever and neither gender is motivated to protect the nation by marching into combat against other men and risking their lives.

So many homophobic undertones and bizarre tangents.

This kid is absolutely guaranteed to be a sperm receptacle in the future. His name is "Beckett" for fucks sake, and his favourite colour is pink and his idiot mother paints his toenails pink.

Dibs.

Good someone is standing up to the boys with pink toenails in this world.

I think every boy with a sister (especially an older sister) has worn nail polish at some point. I know I did.

To be honest, when I saw that photo I thought "Well, I mean, that is kind of fruity..." but the great thing about being that age is that despite what some pervy old psychoanalysts and child development experts might say, you can do things like that with very little bearings on your sexuality.

I'm the oldest boy, so the whole older-sister-treatment is foreign to me. So long as he's not some dress-up doll for his mom, it's alright I suppose; I disagree with the article's contention that transgenderism can be deduced at those ages, however. Also, I don't see why this needs to be "celebrated" either. Why should the emphasis be on anybody? The Fox article mentions a homogenization of gender roles which I don't totally disagree with, to my horror.

I did really like this line from the Fox article though:
Why not make race the next frontier? What would be so wrong with people deciding to tattoo themselves dark brown and claim African-American heritage?





Also, that's one of the youngest hipsters I've ever seen.

EDIT: Who the fuck names their kid "Beckett"?
#32
Quote by AzureNight
Someone who apparently wants to ensure a future for their child as a cum dumpster or the kind of person who collects used condoms in a gay club washroom to get AIDS.

Anyone remember that thread where there was a bunch of fags fantasizing about being HIV positive? This kid will be one of them.

Fantastic parenting, that's for sure.

Stop it. Even if you're joking, I'm pretty close to reporting you.

People still take Faux News serious?

ZOMG Faux News! That's so funny and original and not completely beaten to death.


Here's a question. Why the hell is this lady using (read: exploiting) her child for advertisement purposes? Doesn't that strike anybody as kind of slimy and unethical?

Regardless, the child is clearly not normal.

He wasn't being homophobic, just overly descriptive. Regardless, take a chill pill. The last thing this forum needs is more people losing it. If you really insist on taking a principled stand, then just report him and don't make a big deal about it.

All I did was give him an extremely fair warning. I hardly "lost it."
