Being effeminate does not amount to being a gay male. In your scenario the boy is picking up social cues from his sisters. He may prefer to play house and Barbie doll. He may even begin to gossip and discuss with his sisters and friends how cute guys are etc. However, when he hits adolescence he might discover that he does not view boys the same way as his sisters doe. He might develop crushes and attractions on girls just like any heterosexual male. Thats because he is naturally straight. He will not go against his nature to emulate his sisters, he will do so only if his nature is actually of homosexual orientation.
That being said for every human behavior there is a proportion of nature as well as nurture.
LOL i used to play with a barbie doll which was lying around my house, and even tried to wear her shoes as a lil 3 year old, but I threw it in the bin when I was 4 and realised it wasn't for guys
I grew up in an extended family where there was about 7 girls and one boy and thankfully never had an argument with my cousin brother for trying to take my barbie doll away from me
He was always busy playing with his action figures or competing on his PS1 when my other cousins would come round where he finally had some male company.
I don't know why but I just can't imagine a little boy playing with a barbie doll. :\ I remember when I used to help out at a primary school all the boys would form their own little group and when there were any colouring tasks they even refused to use the colour pink as it was a 'girly colour'
@sunny: I'm not surprised at all. I was so shocked when I heard 6 year old kids saying no homo and screwfacing when talking about gays.
I didn't even know the meaning of the word gay till I was about 14!
Edit: I'm against PDA too. I can't stand it when people make out in front of me
I happen to catch the train from one of the red light areas so I always see two guys or two girls making out and I actually want to puke. Same sex or not, it really isn't something I want to see. Holding hands or resting your head on your partner's shoulder is fine but anything more will make me uncomfortable.
