Quote# 65909

When my wife (who is female) was pregnant with our first son (who is male), went downtown to a buy some baby clothes for him, she didn't at first notice that she was selecting clothes from the "gender neutral" section until a salesperson (male/female -- select all that apply) asked my wife (who is female) if she is going to raise our baby (who is male) to be "gender neutral". My wife (who is female), didn't understand the question and asked for clarification. When she received an answer, she promptly responded with, "You people are sick!" and dropped all the clothes on the floor and walked out.

I guess she's an androgynophobe and needs to go to re-education camp in a local public school.

WTF is wrong with gender neutral baby clothes?!

9/27/2009 2:49:49 PM


Hey, asshat, what about those parents who choose to let 'Gawd' surprise them instead of finding out the gender at an ultrasound??? Hmmmmm????? Wouldn't want a little boy to be dressed in pink and turn out to be a ghey now would ya?

My brain (which functions) is disgusted with you

How strange that you have to keep reassuring yourself about gender. You must be very insecure about your, and others' roles.

You should get help for this.

Your wife, whom I would certainly, and in no uncertain terms describe in unequivocal female terms, is a bitch that needs to be taught some manners and also helped with her terminal stupidity not to realise what she was about. I doubt it is safe to let her out alone.

If I were a baby, I would autoabort rather than be born to parents like you.

BTW, your prejudices ARE showing rather more than you might imagine.

Doctor Whom

You mean your wife didn't instantly recognize gender-neutral baby clothes? That filthy whore! I guess she's a traditional-family-values-phobe and needs to go to re-education camp in a local megachurch.

I don't even believe this. I don't believe that there is actually a store that has clothing for "gender neutral" babies. And babies ARE kind of gender neutral in appearance, anyway, and they certainly don't give a damn what they are wearing. GAH. What an idiotic liar.

9/27/2009 3:24:17 PM


Oookkaaayyy... This sounds like bullshit to me.

9/27/2009 3:35:31 PM


Your wife can't differentiate between blue and pink? Is she a dog, perchance?

9/27/2009 3:38:07 PM


Equality cannot be allowed in our Christian nation. Men must be above women and white people must be above black people.

Is that the jist of your post?

gender neutral baby clothes aren't exactly new, they're for something called "baby showers" which before the days of ultrasound were thrown before the gender of the child was known. So not only are y'all impolite bigots, you literally do not know the first thing about polite society.

Not Today

I like that he has to keep reiterating that his wife is a female.

At one point we were looking at adopting and bought a lot of gender neutral stuff since we didn't know which gender kid we'd get. Adoption fell through and we wound up having a girl of our own. She wears quite a bit of clothing that's not specifically girl. But you know what, she's still female. The clothes don't change that.

Thinking Allowed

Um... gender neutral in baby clothes mean it's appropriate for a boy or girl, not if the child will be reared gender neutral.

By the way, we can easily deduct that when you say "wife" you mean that she's female.

9/27/2009 3:50:06 PM


Since you don't state that you or your wife knew the gender of the baby before it was born, the sales person was right in telling you to get gender neutral clothing.

Why are you reading more into that can only mean you are a stupid fucking fundie.

stupid duplicate entries

Gender neutral baby clothes are for those people who want to buy gifts for baby showers etc. but they don't know what gender the baby is yet. They're usually white, green or yellow. Although I have to paraphrase Juno here: why does everyone think yellow is gender neutral?

I don't know that this woman told her husband but someone got the wrong end of the stick.

9/27/2009 3:56:30 PM


I'll probably raise my some-far-far-off-time-in-the-future children gender neutral at first. As a woman who loved softball and Barbie when she was little, I see no problem with not forcing a child into antiquated gender stereotypes and letting them decide for themselves what they enjoy wearing/playing with/want to be when they grow up.

Though my mother threw a hissy fit when I told her I’d get whatever’s cheapest as far as the basics of baby clothes go (onsies, full body suits, sleeping gowns, play clothing, etc) with my first kid and, if the second one was the opposite gender, then my daughter would just have to deal with blue baby clothes or my son with pink. Gender neutral stuff can be hard to find in the less expensive stores.

9/27/2009 4:08:07 PM


i assume they were yellow?
unless she is color blind, you would have to be a fucking idiot not to know they use yellow for unisex clothes
i think either you made this shit up or if its true the people who told her/you that were just messing with you.

The FBI is controlling your thoughts via your toaster

At least he's not confused about his wife's gender.

And MK your wife needs to go back to kindergarden.

9/27/2009 4:30:19 PM


I don't believe that gender neutral baby clothes exist, aside from perhaps unisex clothing. Citation needed.

9/27/2009 4:33:57 PM


Well, it was kind of an overreaction.

9/27/2009 4:40:29 PM


Wow, 1) We would assume your wife is female based on the fact she's your WIFE... perhaps she looks a little masculine? 2) She must either be an idiot, or there must be nothing odd about gender neutral clothes if she's picking them out 3) The salesperson just works at that store... insulting them gets you nowhere and 4) Your wife sounds like a rude bitch who needs to go to Kindergarten to learn her manners, and you just need to be isolated from society for being such a rude, idiotic, disrespectful prick

9/27/2009 4:53:03 PM


wife (who is female)
wife (who is female)

Yeah, your wife is female. We get it. I can only guess that your wife is either not female and you are trying to insist she is, or you wish your wife weren't female. Unless you were trying to prove your point: you think genders define how people should act and must be made a big deal out of.

I was born before ultrasounds were common. My parents just went with the feeling that I was going to be a girl, so I wound up wearing lots of pre-purchased pink my first year.

I am quite male. Clothing colors don't define infants. They only panic and frustrate mental midgets.

9/27/2009 5:03:09 PM


Colors are have no gender, for obvious reasons. If you wish to use a specific color to identify gender, that's your choice.

9/27/2009 5:03:28 PM


What did people do before ultrasounds and they couldn't find out if it was a boy or a girl. I think baby showers were full of yellow/green clothes.

I have 3 kids. Ultrasound was available but we wanted to be surprised. There isn't much left in the world, with all the technology that you can be surprised with anymore. Our kids rooms were yellow with white curtains. I have two boys 20 and 17 and a girl 14. They are all well adjusted and I'm glad I didn't find out what gender they were.
