It's dumb.
I have a few (online) friends who are bronies, which you should probably know what those are.
Then there's me, I have nothing to do with that girly stuff.
People can just simply love what the like, and be them. Not what society says they have to like.

Ok touchy subject.
Be what you want to be and like what you like.
As a guy I'm NOT supposed to like pink and even though its Not my favorite color I don't have a problem with it.
But let me put it this way, its better to have parents who are showing they care and trying to do things as best as they can, Then to be in an abusive house or on the street.
If your parents are telling you what to like and what not to, its only because they care and want the best for you.

I think it's really stupid for someone to tell you what to like. Who cares if a girl likes dinosaurs? Or blue? OR action? And who cares if a boy likes pink? Or wears makeup? Or likes princesses?

By the way, my aunt's an archeologist, my favorite colour is cerulean (shade of blue) and I like the Hunger Games, which DEFINITELY counts as action. Pink is a big thing I'm my school (everyone including Boyd wears it), BTS's Jin's favorite colour is pink, Kpop bands wear makeup a lot See More▼

It's sterotipical for people to think that, about guys and girls.

When I was 2 years old, the only time I would ever have a barbie in my hand would be me trying to rip it's head off.

To me, yes. People should be who they want to be and who they KNOW they are. People should never be told what they have to do in their future, what they should like, what they should believe, etc. We're all free to be who we want, do what we want, and like what we want, whether it be good or bad..(I wish my parents understood that)

But if they like what the gender roles say they should like, that's okay. It's their choice to like those things, unless they are being forced
