This is just building on all of the other gender stereotype UOs/vents/complaints, and I know it's been brought up multiple times before. I saw a meme on facebook yesterday that said "Boymom, most of my ironing is done in the dryer." Um, excuse me? What in the hell does your children's genitalia have anything to do with your skills/habits related to laundry?? I'm just getting so annoyed with the "boymom" stereotype. You never see "girlmom" or "girldad/boydad". My kids' sexes have nothing to do with my parenting style. And it's getting really old to hear, "Oh boys are so much work, they're so gross, blah blah blah, but they're SO sweet!!!" First of all, my girls fart louder than most adults I've heard, they pick their nose constantly, and I've had to yell at them multiple times to get things out of their butts/vagina, don't lick your sister's toe/face/random body part. And mostly, I find it offensive that people are basically implying that my girls aren't sweet and don't love on me the way a son would. My girls are so clingy to me sometimes that I can't handle it. They love giving me (and their Daddy) hugs and kisses and want to snuggle with us both all the time, and I don't think it has a single thing to do with how they pee. Sorry, that got really long. Rant over.
