They did the same thing on the show "Reba", where Van taught Reba how to walk as a beauty contestant in 3 inch heels. They are feminizing the men at the same time as they are masculinizing the women. I started watching TBATB about 4 years ago, to replace All My Children which was discontinued. I must've missed Rick in the high heels. Ick!
I was shopping one day in the yarn aisle of a department store, and a young woman with a newborn baby asked if I could help her pick out some elastic to make her baby a head band. She wanted to know if the elastic would pinch. I asked what the baby's name was, and she said "Riley". I know there are moms naming their baby girls with this name, but right away I thought it should be for a boy.
