I like children (newborn especially)to look like small YELLOW chicken! 8) But my nephew looks like an adult wearing brown velvet trousers, but I agree most of his clothes are dark blue... weird... Why it it so? boys - blue, ladies - pink... I don't like it either. :P

As far as i'm concerned... I changed my hair-cut 2 years ago and became red. Soo now no one consider me as a brown-hair lady anymore! I guess It influenced a bit on my behavior, I became open-minded, self confident (though still not enough)... :oops:

This story raised a question that should children be raised as a boy or a girl based on society's gender-based expectations? Would they be better off without these expectations? etc. It's really nice to read.

Thanks for the story, Lennye! "It's not easy to be yourself". And it's almost impossible to raise a child without paying any attention to it's gender...
I appreciate every link you give, guys! I hardly could find it on my own... :wink:

We used this story for our English class and psychology of childhood class. We had a great discussion about it. I'll post more links about this kinda stories if you'd like. :wink:

I'll appreciate! Especially I liked the end, when you think that everything is over and you can predict it, all the story, the end is something you didn't expect! I like it! :wink:

I didn't get the end when I first read it, you know. I was like, "what the hell is a Y?!?!?!?" but then I started to understand what it meant, and everything was clear. Man, I just wish I could do that to life. It's an extraordinary achievement when you can find the only key that opens up everything about life.
