Stop. Teaching. BOYS. To. Be. Overly. Masculine.
For the love of god, you aren’t doing anyone, not even yourself; a favor by pretending you’re an invincible macho man, it’s ignorant. I see this enforcement often and I see kids wanting to be something they’re assuming is right for them, reason only being that they’re males. All you’re doing is limiting yourself (and in this case, your child?) from simple beauty that the world has to offer? When my friends little brother got gaslighted by his own mom because he didn’t understand why nail varnish was just for women? Guess who came to me and asked if it would be okay to paint his nails? Guess what I said? I just asked which color he wanted. You’re a parent, and a guide for your children. That does NOT mean that everything you enforce is right and Is necessary for your child to follow by any means if it’s directly attacking their individuality. You aren’t a boss, you don’t have total control over what your children want, need or what their opinions are of anything really. All you can do is help them the best way you know how, because worst case scenario. They’ll either become everything you hate out of spite because you didn’t give them a chance. Or they’ll grow up being a mini you because they didn’t get the chance to find out who they really were. Sometimes your kids are going to blindside you and that’s okay because they’re learning and blossoming. Let it happen and guide them the best you can.
