Hi Afghanmania friends,

today I read an article in New York Times about an afghan family, which has no son but four daughters. They decided to dress up one of the girls as a boy to show the others that they have a son.

You can read the whole story here:

I’ve never  heard or seen something like that in before and to be honest I was quite shoked…

I would like to ask you guys, have you ever heard about this “new trend”?

What do you think about it?

ya i seen it in very rear cases specially in kids ages,but an adult daughter i have never seen. i think it just for the wishing of completion of their family. we should take it in positive sense.

This is usual in afghanistan…. i have seen many families they do the same… This cause some serious problem for the girl when she grows younger… she was raised as a boy and then is threated as girl…
