I Guess It Starts When You're Young
It's not the fact that Lucy are Maddie are running around the house like crazy, flapping their arms squeeling "POOLA!" and "DOAGIE!" that bothers me. Nor the fact that it's chilly in here and Maddie's wearing shorts and a t-shirt. What's bugging me is that Lucy is pretending to be someone named Michael, but is wearing a pink leotard with a denim skirt and hat set. I asked her why Michael was pretending to be a girl. According to her, he's not pretending to be a girl. He's just dressed like one.
What exactly does it mean when your three year old daughter is pretending to be a male crossdresser?
