My twins are identical and people still want them to be a boy and a girl. We were at the MS walk (it was crowded) a few weeks ago and DH was carrying Ethan. He felt someone behind him and turned around--it was a lady tickling his feet! She said she was just tickling the girls feet. I was like, HE IS A BOY AND WHY ARE YOU TOUCHING HIM ANYWAY?! Of course, I didn't actually say anything, lol!

To the OP I think its the name TO A POINT.

I will have harper dressed in all pink and someone will say "whats her name" I say "Harper" and then they say "OHH HES SO CUTE!"

They think Harper is a boy's name so it doesnt matter WHAT color shes wearing.

I just kindly say "yeah I think SHES beautiful too" or something like that.

Re: Anyone Else Have This "Problem"?

LOL I'd be mad, too!! My dd had no hair and once wore a DRESS to church and some old lady kept referring to her as "he." I finally introduced her, saying this is GRACE, and this lady looked at me like I was nuts! Like, why would you name a boy Grace? She still didn't get it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My friend pierced her dd's ears and that solved the problem, but we opted out of that.

Re: Anyone Else Have This "Problem"?

Sorry mamas, that totally sucks! I've screwed up boys and girls, but only when they're wearing gender neutral clothing. A baby in pink or in a dress is a girl, for Pete's sake!!

Can you believe that with one or two exceptions when she was much smaller, no-one ever screws Isabel's sex up? I can have her in a white t-shirt and jeans and everyone says "what a cute girl" - it's gotta be all her hair!

Happens to me and dd a lot. Most of the time she is in her wrap being worn so people can't see all the pink she is in. Her hair sticks up like my boys (although they use hair products )so I guess everyone thinks she looks like them

Re: Anyone Else Have This "Problem"?

People can be so weird!! I find it very important to be sensitive about boy/girl babies, not asking woman if they are pregnant, etc... but some people just don't get it!! They talk first and think second!! Sorry you and your darling daughter are having to deal with this...

Re: Anyone Else Have This "Problem"?

I get this all the time! It is so frustrating! I have 2 boys and they were not called girls (rarely), but my girl is called a he 90% of the time! Dressed in pink! Yeah, she has no hair, but people are just blind!
I say the 'yes, we think SHE"S cute, too' type stuff and most of the time they catch it, but it just annoys me to no end.
If I can't tell the gender of a baby, I make a neutral comment. like 'what a cutie' or something and the parent will then usually say something gender specific. I also NEVER ask if someone is preg, unless it is painfully obvious. (I jsut got asked at the grocery store the other week - it was devastating to my already low self-esteem!). I think we should get a free punch or something for being wrongfully accused! HAHA!
