My daughter isn't close to wearing panties yet, but I read this article and was wondering what other parents of girls would think of it:

The dad lets his daughter wear boys underwear since she likes some of the designs that aren't availabe in her section.  It is an interesting question on why manufacturers just assume that girls wouldn't want to wear panties with superheroes on them.

Sure, why not? It isn't going to hurt anything.

Sure why not???  Underwear is underwear.  i would also write the manufacturer of the underwear and tell them what you did and why.....who knows maybe someday girls won't have to wear boy's underwear....they will have their choice of the same underwear that boys have.....and visa versa!  We shouldn't lock children into gender stereotypes....let them choose things for themselves based on their likes and dislikes.

I don't see a problem with it at all, heck, even Victoria's Secret and the major manufacturers sell "boy short" panties to girls and ladies now.  My youngest daughter LOVES the color green, she loves pink too, but if it were to come down to it and we needed to venture over to the boys section for green undies, I wouldn't have a problem with it.  now her dad on the other hand, well, that's another discussion...
