They are just kids and don't even know about sexual preferences (hopefully) so how do they get labeled transgender or gay just because they play with a doll or like girl things? Couldn't it just be a phase like being a tomboy is for girls and would pass when the time came if it weren't for the adults who now jump in to make everything go as it should? Which could be totally wrong. I wonder how many kids may have gotten lead into a miserable existence by well meaning parents.

No we aren't and you make some great points and I don't think even if the man was weak back then that everyone decided he should be a girl. That's really my question. Maybe ideas today are worse than they were back then in one way of looking at it.
++++++++++++++++++++, many tomboys become VERY SUCCESSFUL women because they harnessed their aggressive qualities. Gender roles are broadening beyond the narrow, stereotypical paradigms.
I am just saying too; maybe parents jump in too soon assuming and label a son something he is not and perhaps push him into being what would not have been even. I even wonder now about Brad and Anjolina's daughter...they are supporting her I read.
Very few parents encourage children to behave the opposite of their gender. Brad & Angelina are in a position in society where they feel (their child) won't have to contend with the harsh realities most parents seek to protect children from.
Well there is the problem then isn't it? They should be supported and not thought of as women. If all didn't then perhaps they could go on being a feminine man in life and I don't see whose business it is.
