I am really not sure where this will go or how serious it is.
On saturday my kids spend the day with my mom. To calm my daughter down, my mom got out some beige nail polish and painted her nails for fun. My son wanted to as well because he's a jealous butt.
I didnt think anything of it, he's 4. It was a nice time with the 2 of them and my mom just ate up the attention.
Yesterday, i tried the same thing. I thought since it worked so well to calm her down, I would try - and it worked. Of course my son also wanted to get his nails painted like at grama's.
DH turned into a green ogre right before my eyes and in so many words stated that DS was never to have his nails painted ever again no matter what the color (or lack there of).
Apparently painting his nails will turn him gay.
I told DH needed to grow the F up and stop being such a homophobe and that painting a 4 year olds nails beige sure as hell wasn't going to make him gay.
But it really ticked me off you know? I could care less if my son is gay or straight. If he wants to date all the colors of the rainbow i could also care less.
I WILL care if who he is with treats him badly. I will care if his heart is broken.
I never really thought DH was racist, but i think he really is. He rarely (at least not in front of me) makes comments about different people infront of the kids, but he has in the past when its just adults.
Uggg....i never thought this was a fight i would have to fight - its 2013 people...get over the differences already!
