Real boys.... love

These days, my younger one is rarely seen without his ‘Dolly’. Unless she is fed, he will not eat. She sits on his lap while watching TV, is made to grip the crayon when he is supposed to be colouring, and even accompanies him to the toilet. Needless to say, neither will sleep at night, unless she is tucked into bed next to him, and he hugs her tight.
I had a faithful companion too, so I know just what he feels for her.
Why then does everyone think he is weird?
Must boys be denied the right to love?

That's adorable. He isn't weird at all. All young boys should act like this. To not afraid to show affection. His doll is like a security blanket. Everyone has had one.

Exactly, Michelle. His 'Dolly' is his security blanket. He uses her to express what he wants to convey, but doesn't want to articulate himself.
I think it is great - wonder why others think it is unnatural.
