I still don't get why boys wore dresses when they were little. Can anyone explain?

Back then, people were scared of evil spirits. So in order to confuse this so called evil spirits, they dressed their baby boys in dresses. So the evil spirits will be confused if it's a boy or a girl! :)

was this because boys were typically valued more than little girls? (just curious)
