"grow a penis" is an anagram for "Spiro Agnew"

Well honey, it's impossible now, but other animals can do it. Here's a book on them. Here's another book on molecular biology. And here's some periodicals and a lab coat.

Also your father wants regeneration.

Yeah, but are you gonna take care of it? Those things require daily excercise, and usually you're on your own with that. And sometimes it just wakes up in the middle of the night and just stares at you, very creepy, you don't want that.

I was driving along in the car recently when my daughter, Ruby*, asked if she could go to the doctor's and get a penis. She's eight. My breath caught in my throat, and without taking my eyes off the road, I said I'd have to Google it when I got home.

Sure... Any excuse to let you Google "penis" again...

How would I respond?  I sure as hell wouldn't start attention-wh0ring on the internet about it.

E5bie: TheOther: rubi_con_man: AverageAmericanGuy: "If you keep yourself clean and healthy, you can have all the penises you want when you get bigger."

One and done

well.. .clean, healthy, pretty, nice and complaint.

...'compliant'?

Yeah yeah yeah, see, boys do the chasing, and girls do the selecting. So the girl has to be "compliant" when the boy asks her to take it off.

/ Or just tap any male in the world on the shoulder, say, "Hi, wanna fark?" and enjoy and 89% success rate.
// Come to think of it, clean, pretty, healthy and nice aren't all that necessary for girl to make that strategy work, either.


Incidentally, this is also why gay men are so much more threatening than lesbians. Gay guys are farking 24/7, committing "crimes against nature" by hooking up with other horny dogs instead of the Frigid Princesses that God intended for all men, to teach them self-mortification. Lesbians are just cute because all they do is sit around together and eat ice cream on a Saturday night, as sexual purity is, after all, the natural state of all women.

Umm, she's 8.  Kid's understanding of race, gender and the rest are still developing- 7 to 8 year olds are still working on understanding that these things are permanent.[1]  How about letting her dress the way she wants and skateboard with the boys if it makes her happy and not stressing about it too much.

If she's still feeling like that at 12-14, then you might need some more help

[1] My then 7-year old once happily told me he didn't have to worry about the n-word because he wasn't black.  When I tried to explain that yes, he was half black he told me he was brown and that I was black since I was wearing black clothes.

You'll only break it off again just like you did right after you were born.  And for the same reason, you do not want to grow a tail.  Breaky breaky.

Anthracite: My question is how does a child see that one gender is better then being another? And exactly what does feeling like a girl feel like? I am a female and I don't feel like wearing dresses or makeup? Is this more about wearing jeans and playing with trucks ? And why wasn't she taught that a girl can do that as well.


Exactly. I had no idea what `feeling like a boy` was like as a kid. At that age if you told me girls got ice cream every day I would have told you I was a girl dammit. I want my ice cream!

I would have worn dresses and said "I just feel like a girl (because girls get something boys don`t that I want)" to anybody that asked for as long as there was ice cream and I wanted it.

Hell I`d still wear a dress for free ice cream. It doesn`t mean anything.

Totally fake article.This is most likely a propaganda piece by the author because there's no way everyone involved would respond in such a rational manner. I mean c'mon...they didn't expel the girl for wearing inappropriate clothing and refusing to obey the rules? The principal was actually aware of gender identity issues and suggested a rational course of action? The mom actually listened and is being sane and reasonable about this? Bullpuckey.

I'm not sure if I buy into these articles. I was a tomboy when I was a kid. Gender-wise, I always have identified more with being a boy. But my mother never made this huge drama out of it like this woman and similar parents.

I have a little trouble believing that a two or three year old refuses to wear either gender's clothing based solely on gender identity because they don't understand it yet. A three year old may not like to wear itchy frilly dresses but she can't tell the difference between a boy's polo shirt and a girl's.

A gender role switch also doesn't necessarily mean a desire to be the opposite sex. And an 8 year old asking to grow a penis might simply want to have all the freedoms she sees the boys enjoying.

Even at age six I could tell that most of the girls in my neighborhood were "house-kept".. I even used that phrase for them. They were like little china dolls, their mothers never let them go anywhere. Perhaps this girl has simply noticed her mother's sexist ideas of what is "for boys" and what is "for girls" and decided the boys get the better deal. I certainly did when I was that age.
