At this point I want to add a quick disclaimer that there are lots of heterosexual families out there who have similarly questioned traditional gender roles; doing so isn’t unique to LGBT families.What matters is talking about gender from an early age – having conversations about what sex and gender mean, whilst rejecting the idea that someone’s biological sex should limit them in any way.We saw our mothers cooking (alas, there was in fact a general lack of baking in the house), and we saw them operating drills (well, admittedly, just one of them was handy with the DIY…).Similarly, Reuven and I were brought-up in a fairly gender-neutral way. We're looking at how ladies feel about guys with tattoos. It's cool when the tats actually have a story behind them," says Sabrina, 26."Tattoos are good, no tattoos are also good. It was pretty surprising when I found out my father's straight-laced accountant had a full sleeve of tattoos, but I guess with everyone and their mother getting them, I really shouldn't have been so shocked.
As with everything, we have some strong opinions on the topic, and received confirmation that tribal armbands really are the worst of the worst. I mean, no Disney characters, PLEASE," says Tanya, 35."Tattoos are lovely! As long as they aren't actually offensive or anything, I don't mind them at all," says Elizabeth, 27."Love what Elizabeth said. Not particularly attracted or not attracted to them.
My mums play-wrestled with my brother, but his biggest delight was gymnastics, not football.
And whilst I spent great swathes of time playing with my soft toys and dolls, I could just as easily be absorbed in lego and playmobile.
And of course, the traditionalists would rather go without"No tattoos on boys. While I sometimes find guys with awesome tats smoking hot, I am far too painfully traditional to ever seriously date someone with a lot of tattoos," says Megan, 28.
While the tattoo conversation still continues on Facebook and Twitter, it's clear to see that you can't please everyone with your tats.
