I mean, hospitals still often use pink and blue hats to identify boys and girls, or if nothing else, pink and blue marked crib cards. That may seem benign, but studies have been done with newborns randomly being given pink or blue hats, and the people around them respond differently according to which hat they are wearing.

As a child development standpoint, they are naturally different. Girls have an innate sense...<snip>

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.

I think that it is harder to raise young boys than it is young girls to be gender biased.
