    I have discovered my 5yr old son trying on my bras & pants secretly, should I be worried or is this

    perhaps just a curiosity phase as he has no father figure? Does this mean he is likely to be gay?

    There are so many assumptions that are wrong in your question. He probably just wants to know what mummy's clothes feel like and tried them to see.
    As for clothes making him gay, hmmnn, not unless he is also an extremely blunt child and he thought about sky diving out of the closet. Never mind the fact he wont be attracted to girls or boys at 5 and is only just learning the difference between the sexes.

    What's to worry  about?  If he turns out to be a homosexual, a crossdresser or just a curious kid- no matter what, he is still your child.

    I wouldn't worry about it. My nephew did the same thing when he was young. I truly believe it's a curiosity thing.

      I agree. I did such things as well, and still have no interest in men or being transgender. Kids will do many things it's best not to worry about or even mention.

    he he I wouldn't be worried he's five and very curious. I wouldn't say he'll be gay or a cross dresser based on that. Now if he's 15 maybe then you'd have to wonder

    No. He is a curious 5 year old trying to learn about the things that mom wears. Give him a pair of your shoes and take some pictures as he tries to walk in them.

    I think this is all a part of growing & exploring the different sexes.

    not in the least. he's just playing grown up. it doesn't matter if it's his dads or his mom's clothing, it's just a game.
