Needs more cowbell!

    If you don't pet the trolls they will eventually get bored and go elsewhere (this is like BB/Forums 101, I think).  Wading through posts engaging trolls is quite possibly more irritating than actual troll posts.

    • 6 duathlons (1 Olympic distance)

    • 130#s (and stay there, gotdammit!)

      You're wearing women's running shoes, aren't you?

        But for those of us recently put on house arrest and unable to run 140 mile weeks anymore, it provides much needed entertainment...

                  Pity it doesn't work in reverse....ask my 4-day-old son with two older sisters.  That pink receiving blanket HAD to go.

                  an amazing likeness

                    There's a lot less work in Trollhattan these days...so they have more time for online stuff.

                    Choosing my words carefully has never been my strength I've been known to be vague and often pointless

                      You're wearing women's running shoes, aren't you?

                      Well at least someone here is making relevance to the subject.

                          Spaniel...sigh  I'm not thinking its your 4 day old son making that call

                           

                          My 5 year old son LOVES his big sister's pink hand me down socks and he often chooses her old pink rainboots instead of his red ones (even though red is his FAVORITE color - pink is a close second).   And for Xmas santa brought her pink goggles and him green goggles and they took one look and swapped. 

                           

                          And since red is his favorite color by far, snow white dress up shoes were a big hit for a long time.  And since he is a car freak, dont get me started on Barbie's pink convertible and the arguments over whether it is hers because it's Barbie or his because it is a car.

                           

                          But we are hippies out here.  We have people in this town who name their kid something totally neutral and refer to it as "it" because they refuse to put a gender label on it.  Seriously the kid is 18 month old and if you havent changed "its" diaper you dont know.  I think you have to sign a secrecy agreement to be on diaper duty.

                            I ignored that thread completely.

                             

                            Until this thread made me look.

                              Of course I wasn't referring to him making the call.  Just in general it's accepted that women can wear men's stuff but not vice versa (at least outside hippie-ville).  We all react to that norm...at least out here in the cogery midwest.  Wink    Back in the dating days if you walked in and your girlfriend was wearing your sweatshirt, it was cool.  If your girlfriend walked in and you were wearing her blouse, she was not going to be your girlfriend much longer.

                               

                              Plus it gives a cue so people know what to call the baby, for awhile it's hard to tell the gender with a cursory look.  Of course for some reason a flotilla of pink accessories didn't stop a ton of people from calling my middle baby a boy, she didn't look especially masculine so we were a bit perplexed by that.

                                Real men wear pink.  Of course, some of us have big feet and small penises.  Notably, Hoppity.
