My wife is a teacher's assistant for kindergarten grade and a few years back there was one boy who dressed like a female animal character from a kid's show during Halloween/costume day. All of the kids thought the costume was nice but none of them paid too much mind either way or cared about it more than any other costume. However, one of the other parents took great offense to it and tried to file a complaint with the principal, saying the costume 'encouraged boys to grow up wanting to be girls'. The principal, who was a very frank, no-nonsense woman, asked the parent if she was worried her son's truck costume would encourage boys to become an automobile when they grow up. That ended the conversation and nothing else came of it. I had a hoot hearing about the story back then and it makes me laugh every time I recall it.
