“He’s so handsome!” “What’s his name?” “How old is your little guy?”
People are constantly assuming that Avery is a boy. Yesterday alone FOUR separate people called her a boy. I don’t mind that people can’t tell she’s a girl (because babies aren’t naturally gendered and they aren’t looking under her diaper), but I mind the assumption. I mind people thinking they can assign a gender to my baby based on the blue sweater she’s wearing, or the brown leather shoes, or the grey pants, or whatever clothing item in ANY COLOUR OTHER THAN PINK.
