Re: Gender bias and our wee onesI suspect that sleepies was refering to this quote from my original post.

I have lost track of how many parents of boys (all mainstream) have told me (as their boys bounced off of walls and leaped of the furniture) that I am lucky because "girls are so sweet and boys are just rough and mean". Aside from the whole 'nice way to descibe your kid right in front of him' issue... I don't think it's true.
my boys are neither rough nor mean
i think rough and mean is TAUGHT behavior
and i think the way they treated their boys, is why they act that way, unless they have medical issues.
