Actually, do you see this so called 'crossdressing' as being the same as a child dressing up as Spiderman/Batman/Superman and thinking because they're an 'impressionable' child that they're automatically going to think they can fly/climb buildings? Because really, that's just the same. By dressing up as a superhero or opposite sex does not mean that a 'switch' is going to go off in a childs head and they suddenly think they are literally that character. It's a great little thing called 'role-play'. Like when kids play Mums & Dads etc.....If you've got two girls playing 'families' they don't play Mums & Mums do they? (and frankly I don't have a problem if they do!) I can only imagine what you'd think of that!!!

You can't be serious.

This isn't promoting cross-dressing, you can't possibly this paranoid, can you?

Kids have wonderful imaginations and like to be creative, this age is not the time to force them to think in the small boxes that you do.

And honestly how is it WRONG? Is it morally wrong? Is there a commandment I'm missing? How is this "wrong"? Are the Scottish "wrong"?

Technically there is (Deut 22:5), which may or may not be what he had in mind; although I've never heard of anyone applying it to children's costume events (or adults' either for that matter).

Nice catch... Yeah, but I'd really like to see any Christian actually use this justification, for they wouldn't get very far. Basically it's just a conformity law.

You think kids dressing like that for one day is cross dressing? So if you had kids you would never let them dress in clothes of the opposite sex, not once ever? What it means is put onto it by adults, not kids. It's play for kids- it's elementary school.

Are you saying that it's not OK to cross dress?

Noted, and I apologize. Typed my frustration out a little too quickly.

I'm more disgusted with encouraging them to dress up like old people.

Hopefully everyone is cool with dressing like other races and famous dictators as well. Then and only then, it's fun.

Because you think it's mocking the elderly in some way?

Every time I hear a story like this I get really, really jealous of these parents. Imagine to have THAT much free time on your hands that this is what you concern yourself with! Wow, what a utopia their lives must be.

I can see a lot of potential for that in it, yes.

Why are you assuming it's a parent who complained?
