Gender and children

You do it all the time. You’ve been doing it for years.

The stance of “you can’t talk about gender with children” is so deeply hypocritical. Adults speak gender to children ALL THE DAMN TIME.

“Trucks are for boys.”
“She’s such a pretty young lady.”
“I bet he’s gonna be a heartbreaker!”
“I’ll have a boy toy for my son please.”
“You can’t wear pink, you’re a boy.”
“Let’s find a dress for this young lady.”
“I bought you a pink Cinderella backpack.”
“He’s a handsome young man, isn’t he.”
“We’re having a boy!!!”
“Congratulations, it’s a girl.”

Bitch please.
