(Narrator) As she tries to find him a more masculine color, Tracy gets more vocal.
(Tracy)I just feel like you’re gonna confuse him. He’s learning. (mother) Really?
you should treat him like a boy. Don’t treat him like a girl Just innocent fun
(Tracy)Innocent fun can lead to who knows what if he wants to wear a dress, you gonna let him wear a dress? What next? Put makeup on ’em? do you think it’s okay? Next, this woman comes in for a change in nail color No more pink for her? What about for him? I mean you do understand that pink is a girl’s color, right? I Think is his favorite color.
