Would you let you son wear makeup like a girl?

Definitely yes. If that makes him feel happy you have no right not to let him do it. It's not like it's the end of the world. Maybe after he tries it a couple of times, he'll realize it's not for him and he'll probably let it go. If he likes it though, then that doesn't necessary mean he's gay or bisexual or anything; he could be perfectly straight or just a metrosexual (a guy who appears to be gay but is not). No matter what his choice is, you should let him do whatever pleases him and support him. Even if he turns out to be gay, that's not such a bad thing you know. After all, he's your son and you love him for who he is, not for his sexuality.

Now if he wants to wear make-up just because he wants to do what you don't want him to and not because it makes him feel good, then no you shouldn't let him wear it...
