I'm not saying that only girls clean and cook and boys only work out side or on cars. Every one needs to know how to cook ,clean and do basic car maintenance.
I can see where make up and things fit with this thinking, but why is it "bad" for boys to play house? Play with dolls? And play in a nurturing way? I don't want to put you on the spot, but you are the first to say you sort of believe this way.

My issue is we raise MEN that have no nuturing skills, are so dumb with kids and lazy, that a great many people on this board would never think of trusting their husbands with their kids. I hear all the time how dhs just don't have time or interests in their kids. I often wonder if in societies desire to remove all the supposed feminitity of men, we have stepped back so far we ruined it for guys to be Dads?

I also agree about bible picking. Seriously in todays soceity and even back in the day you really can't follow every law in the bible. Some things in there are shocking and thankfully not followed any more. Some things are even more clear about avoiding or doing, but for some reason a bunch of people held onto one tiny thing in the bible while skipping the parts they just don't like.
