How to make girl and boy drawing
Great Gifts for Boys and Girls Who Love Art – Art Kits for Kids
Today my son drew himself as a boy for the first time in his life. For that many years, when he has drawn himself, he has drawn himself as a girl. In the mediums of crayon, colored pencil and marker, our son is a beautiful girl with long red hair, a big puffy ball gown the color of cotton candy and a tiara with a gigantic heart-shaped stone front and center.
Feelings of uneasiness popped up in us here and there when it was time for arts and crafts, especially when there were other people around. Being acutely aware that children who continually, over an extended period of time draw themselves as the opposite sex are more likely to be transgender, we have always wondered if and when the day would come when our boy would draw himself as a boy looking like a boy.
We imagined that if it ever happened we would feel a sense of relief and happiness. Then, it happened and we were nothing but sad. Hopefully they will have a mutually beneficial and special relationship.
Because C. On their first day of meeting, the Kinderbuddies had to sit together and draw a picture of themselves together. He showed us the picture that they had drawn together. We looked at each other in shock. Our hearts sank. We had always thought that things would feel more right, more normal, on the day that C. Things felt sad because our son had to do it out of self-preservation.
He did it to adapt and conform. He did it to hide his true self. It felt like he had lost some of his innocence. With that drawing, it felt like our son was losing his grip on the concept that he is free to be anything he wants to be.
Was he losing his grip? He wanted to throw it away. I think CJ is doing just fine. It is the school that needs some major help.
I also really dislike the cookie-cutter stencil the school gets them to colour in. CJ never drew himself and neither did his buddy. They just coloured in the boy template. CJ is one smart cookie. He understood the direction from the top and played along. I am wondering if through modeling, some boys see the more aggression and less kind treatment around them facing either themselves or other boys at home, in the neighborhood, and in school.
Perhaps they are also seeing the much more kind, stable, supportive love, and care given the girls around them and much more positive attention they are given. This contrast of life and treatment could signal to them from a young age they would be more safe and cared for more as a girl. Perhaps some parents have it wrong in seeing raising boys to be very tough as the best way to prevent weakness in a Male child.
Perhaps this could set up instead, more contrast in treatment seen by the child and thus create either a more aggressive child or one that want to emulate the other gender to avoid more aggressive treatment. Communication is the key. I explore how gender constructs and expectations are built into our culture and how we can best deconstruct them.
I would love to hear any suggestions you might have for topics, since you have such first-hand experience with gender non-conformity. For me, it was Grade 2 where I learned it was social death to be gender non-conforming. For me, it was the Christmas pageant. My class was doing a rendition of the 12 days and we were significantly boy heavy. When I volunteered, I was shunned and from that exact moment onward, for 35 years, I kept my soul to myself. All to myself. I am crying as I type this, because it was such a pivotal moment in my life.
I chose my path at age 7. I was introspective enough to know my soul, observant enough to see what society expected, intelligent enough to see the ramifications of non-conformity, and weak enough to take the path that would torment me for decades.
It was a different time. I am now happy beyond words and would change not a thing. I am the product of my experiences and to change one, would be to change all. Nonetheless, I recall the suffering. I remember the agony. I am encouraged by the change in our times, regardless of how glacial it is.
I have been a woman for years. Thank you again, for bringing me back to who I am and how great I truly have it to have found the courage to be me, regardless of how long it took. Your son will grow up to be completely and absolutely fabulous, no matter his gender. It sounds like your son knows himself well enough. Makes no sense to me. I always enjoy reading your stories about CJ. This one really hit home for me. It really screwed me up for a long time until I finally accepted who I am.
I still hide from my parents, as they have openly advocated violence against the LGBT community at large. I really wanted to let you know that you are the epitome of the mother I wish I had. Your husband seems to be amazing as well. I want to give the both of you a great big hug because you are amazing parents.
CJ is so lucky to have you two. I wish you all the best of luck in the future, and I hope you, your husband, and CJ live long, happy lives. I want to tell him that he can be who ever he wants to be…and that I will stand behind him, just like his parents have.
As a transman raised in a conservative southern home, with parents who became my biggest champions, I thank you wholeheartedly for sharing your story via this blog. I have been a long time reader of your wonderful blog but I seldom comment I always love it and you. I just found this and wanted to make sure you were aware of it: apparently you can get a postcard from Disney characters if you write to them.
Maybe a postcard from a princess will help him out? He may be open to it, maybe not. If he is open to it, maybe the kinderbuddy can help CJ determine if he really IS transgender.
CJ will evenually slip and if there is an issue, you want to prevent the adverse reaction. Oh my, that is sad…for both C. So glad, though, that CJ. Is completely secure in your feelings and support for him. I would suggest getting the school involved. I just felt he thought his buddy was cool, and was reticent about being too open too soon, and merely chose to keep it close.
I do think though, that the school should be involved. It makes absolutely no sense to match people based solely on gender especially if gender is conceived as a binary. Big hearts to you, your husband, and mostly CJ and all the other tender genders out there. Keep being a wonderful mother Xoxo Radium. So amazing! First off I would like to say that you are great parents and a great family. As a Rainbow child myself I grew up in another environment all together.
My father treated me like a object to step on. He loved to make a scene of me in the neighborhood. I think it made he feel validated. I further got bullied constantly at school throughout my life. That is the basic story. My life is oh so much longer, sadder and finally much brighter than it was than. Much like you I live in the conservative minded O.
Thank you for being you. Together and with many others we make the world so much brighter. I love that CJ knows who he is and can decide when to share himself with others and when not to. This is a skill we all practice when we move through the world. That being said.
My heart sank into my stomach when I saw the drawing. It is sad that the adult world takes away the creativity and individuality of children. Excellent song, sad but somehow.

Many young artists that I know of, love to draw really large eyes with the reflection spot in them, which I imagine is inspired by the anime craze. Making a drawing this way with the head extra large leaves plenty of room to add all kinds of details in the eyes. And the best circle template for the job? Old CDs.
