One of the lesser known effects of gender bias

Monday, May 26, 2008

Sunday Morning - I am in the shower.

Emily enters the bathroom and begins to brush her teeth.

Emily: "Mama. I think I have gender bias."

Me: "What? What did you say?"

Emily: "Gender Bias. I think I have it."

Me: "Why do you think you have gender bias?"

Emily: "Cause when I brush my teeth, I can see a little blood on my gums."

Dawn: "That's Gingivitis, honey - not gender bias... Although both are pretty insidious."



Someone is clearly listening as her parents watch the Sunday morning political shows....

And which of the two disorders would upset you more in a child?

I think that is the loudest I have ever LOL'd.

If only we could root out gender bias by flossing.

I just love it!!! I love when kids say things like that - out of complete innocence. Yesterday my six year old told me we had to be careful of ticks because we might LEMON disease. I almost choked.

Oh that is SO funny. Who would have thunk a quick trip to the dentist could help gender bias?
