Well, going off of comments I have received both online, and in person regarding my wife and I's decision to make our SON a kitchen playset and several "daughter" comments and "but he is a boy", let me be perfectly blunt.

Fuck you. Any time we go to our local science center, or to the children's museum, he always wants to play in the kitchen playset area. He always wants to watch us cook and likes being involved, so we thought this would be a good idea.

Furthermore, if my kid wanted a barbie doll i would get it for him. If that is what he wants, then that is what he wants. Its his decision what he wants to play with. Not mine.

EDIT So it seems like people are confused as to why I said this. Prior to this hitting front page, there were comments on the post that were extremely negative in regards to my wife and I making our son a kitchen playset. People called our 2 year old son a faggot, claimed that we were going to turn him gay, things like that. The majority of those comments were either deleted by the people who posted them, or were deleted by the moderators.

I want to thank everyone for the nice comments! My wife and I have enjoyed reading them and appreciate the support from everyone. We worked really hard on this and our son has really enjoyed playing with his new kitchen. Also, we plan on making him a toy workbench as well because he also enjoys playing with toy tools.

As far as my comment on if he wants to play with a barbie doll...again, let me stress this. HE IS 2. I have seen him get excited and play with a broom. Ya'll need to chill. Kids are going to play with what they want, and if you try to prevent them from doing something as harmless as playing with the toy they want to play with, they are going to end up resenting you.
