Animals, Children, and Facts: kids, the animal world &gender This morning, my 5yo asked us if his new boy-kitten would grow up to be a daddy cat. We said that no, he wouldn't, and were about to explain that this is because the kitten is desexed when my son said, "Oh, that's right - because if you don't grow up to be a mummy or a daddy, then you're not a boy or a girl you're just a person! It turns out, he's been lowkey assuming that there are three grown-up genders: mummy, daddy, and adult, such that anyone who isn't a parent is, in some sense, nonbinary. We explained that, while he's right in thinking there are people who aren't boys or girls, your adult gender isn't determined by whether or not you have a kid, and used examples of people we know as proof. He accepted this with a nod, then went off to play with the kitten, We had a related conversation at bedtime last week, when the "story" he'd chosen was a book of facts about Australian animals. One of the entries we read was about the barramundi fish, which are all male as babies and only turn female during spawning season. This prompted him to ask if human boys could turn into girls, too, and while he was a bit too sleepy for a detailed conversation, I said something along the lines of, "yes, there are some people who look like boys when they're little, but who realise they're girls and change when they get older." He accepted that, too, and then we read another entry about a particular type of bat. These are only two small examples, but it's endlessly fascinating to me to watch how kids are trying to figure out what gender is and what it means from the world around them. There have been times when my son has come home saying that pink is for girls, because that's what he heard at school, and so we have a conversation about how colours are for everyone. The point is not only that children absorb what's going on around them and try to process it through an individual lens, but that how adults answer their questions plays a massive role in comprehension, too. Don't tell kids they're silly for asking these sorts of questions or act as if the truth is obvious: they're not, and it really isn't. But wont somebody think of the children?
Animals, Children, and Facts: kids, the animal world &gender
 This morning, my 5yo asked us if his new boy-kitten would grow up to be a
 daddy cat. We said that no, he wouldn't, and were about to explain that this is

 you don't grow up to be a mummy or a daddy, then you're not a boy or a girl

 It turns out, he's been lowkey assuming that there are three grown-up
 genders: mummy, daddy, and adult, such that anyone who isn't a parent is, in
 some sense, nonbinary. We explained that, while he's right in thinking there
 are people who aren't boys or girls, your adult gender isn't determined by

Clothes, Friends, and Fucking: satanpositive Roses are red, that much is true, but violets are purple, not fucking blue feels-for-the-fictional I have been waiting for this post all my life marzipanandminutiae They are indeed purple But one thing you've missed The concept of "purple Didn't always exist. Some cultures lack names For a color, you see Hence good old Homer And his "wine-dark sea. A usage so quaint, A phrasing so old, For verses of romance Is sheer fucking gold So roses are red. Violets once were called blue I'm hugely pedantic But what else is new? ineptshieldmaid My friend you're not wrong About Homer's wine-ey sea! Colours are a matter Of cultural contingency Words are in flux And meanings they drift But the word purple You've given short shrift. The concept of purple My friends, is old And refers to a pigment once precious as gold. By crushing up molluscs From the wine-dark sea You make a dye: Imperial decree Meant that in Rome to wear purpura was a privilege reserved For only the emperor! The word purple', for clothes so fancy Entered English By the ninth century Why then are voilets Not purple in song? The dye from this mollusc, known for so long Is almost magenta; More red than blue The concept of purple is old, and yet new The dye is red So this might be true Roses are purple And violets are blue squeeful While this song makes me merry, Tyrian purple dyes many a hue From magenta to berry And a true purple too But fun as it is to watch this poetic race The answer is staring you right in the face Roses are red and violets are blue Because nothing fucking rhymes with purple. Roses are red
Clothes, Friends, and Fucking: satanpositive
 Roses are red, that much is true, but violets are purple, not fucking blue
 feels-for-the-fictional
 I have been waiting for this post all my life
 marzipanandminutiae
 They are indeed purple
 But one thing you've missed
 The concept of "purple
 Didn't always exist.
 Some cultures lack names
 For a color, you see
 Hence good old Homer
 And his "wine-dark sea.
 A usage so quaint,
 A phrasing so old,
 For verses of romance
 Is sheer fucking gold
 So roses are red.
 Violets once were called blue
 I'm hugely pedantic
 But what else is new?
 ineptshieldmaid
 My friend you're not wrong
 About Homer's wine-ey sea!
 Colours are a matter
 Of cultural contingency
 Words are in flux
 And meanings they drift
 But the word purple
 You've given short shrift.
 The concept of purple
 My friends, is old
 And refers to a pigment
 once precious as gold.
 By crushing up molluscs
 From the wine-dark sea
 You make a dye:
 Imperial decree
 Meant that in Rome
 to wear purpura
 was a privilege reserved
 For only the emperor!
 The word purple',
 for clothes so fancy
 Entered English
 By the ninth century
 Why then are voilets
 Not purple in song?
 The dye from this mollusc,
 known for so long
 Is almost magenta;
 More red than blue
 The concept of purple
 is old, and yet new
 The dye is red
 So this might be true
 Roses are purple
 And violets are blue
 squeeful
 While this song makes me merry,
 Tyrian purple dyes many a hue
 From magenta to berry
 And a true purple too
 But fun as it is to watch this poetic race
 The answer is staring you right in the face
 Roses are red and violets are blue
 Because nothing fucking rhymes with purple.
Roses are red

Roses are red
