And still it happen to be true with daughters there simply is more chance you are stuck watching stuff about princesses. In a lot of cases it has been brought on by the parents, by the stuff they give them frm the moment they are born., only giving cars to boys and dolls to girls, and give everything that is pink to girls and blue to boys. Then yes they tend to grow up that way.
But even without interference there is a difference in tendency what boys or girls like. Boys a little more action orientated, girls a bit more romantic. But girls can definitely like what they want and so can boys.
Some continue to like their own thing depsite what society tries to shape them into ( often not consciuosly, but that might just be an issue right there) A lot of times it catches on though "cars? no that is for boys" etc, a lot of learned behaviour.
personally I really cant stand it when there is a newborn and all they get is pink stuff and extremely "girly things ( in case it is a girl) ... What cant girls like dinosaurs? Please let the kid just grow up as a kid and expose them to every thing. Not "you are a girl, so you cant have this, or must do this..). Let them decide what they want and dont force them into a direction.
It is completely ridiculous that girls cant play with dinosaurs, why on earth not??? (sorry I guess some personal frustration is coming up... not that my parents prevented me from choosing what I liked, but everyone around me growing up looked at me as if I was some kind of alien, not accepted by the girls because I wasnt like them, and not by the boys because I was a girl. Same problem as an adult..
And in this case, I cant imagine if after bell wasnt accepted you wouldnt try belle. (it is a word you come across more often in other cases, even if you have never had a single lesson of french or other romance lanaguage. It is not like some unknown city that happens to end in double n, which is the only instance in which that word excists.)
