Why It’s Imperative to Teach Empathy to Boys (and not assign genders to toys). As a nanny, I've seen parents worried their boys will be gay cuz they want to play dolls or dress up in girly clothes. If ur child is straight or gay, they're born that way, and no amt of encourage/discourage of toys is going to change it, tho I do think they can discourage children's potential & spirit when they discourage certain toys or even when their attitude is "I hope he doesn't play w/ that doll."
