no your daughter your choice

I suppose that during the time he is responsible for her, he can buy her whatever he wants and dress her in it (within reason). But it is not up to him to dictate to you what she wears when you are responsible for her (within reason).

DD is 10 and wears plain black trainers.

I would not take it too seriously. Many men like their girls to look very feminine, and why not? My son won't wear pink, my father who was a boxer and 6ft 3 wore pink shirts! Who cares?

I asked DD(9) "can girls wear black sneakers (trainers)? Or only boys?". Her reply:

<cats bum mouth and eyebrow cocked> "Anyone can wear black sneakers. Anything a boy can do, a girl can do. Who said something stupid like that?"

Oh, how I love my little feminist.

Complimentary, because many parents (including presumably the OP) want their children to not be pushed into a particular gender stereotype so that they are able to express themselves more fully and freely both as children and when they become adults.

Ask him if he would like to buy a one wat ticket to Get-A-Fucking-Gripsville

If she wants to wear black trainers then it's a ridiculous thing to say she shouldn't.

If she wants to wear lelli kelli, then finances permitting (and designer label tolerance) it's a ridiculous thing to say she shouldn't.

If you want her to wear black trainers and force her to, that is ridiculous.

If he wants her to wear pink and sparkly and forces her t, that is ridiculous.

"no your daughter your choice"

Er- presuming he is the father, it's his daughter too...

Not saying I agree with what he said about black trainers being only for boys. Not at all unreasonable for your DD to wear black trainers.

I think the DD is 16 months - I doubt she has much of an opinion at this point.

Well I think it's OK.

Following on from DNP idea I asked my DS (6).

ME: 'can girls wear black trainers'
DS: girls aren't doing it hmm
ME: No, can girls wear black trainers
DS: Where? confused
ME: On their feet. Can girls wear black trainers?
DS: No, girls can't wear trainers as they have a higher instep than boys. confused even more.

He will make someone an interesting DH one day. grin

Asked my 2 DDs just now
"DD2, can girls wear balck trainers?"
Puzzled look, "not sure"
"DD1, can girls wear black trainers?"
"Maybe. It doesn't really matter what colour of trainers you wear. Anyone can wear what they like"
DD2 nods sagely.
