I was "sure" during my second pregnancy that I was carrying a son, as the baby was so different in behavior, daily rhythm and pretty much everything from what our firstborn daughter had been. Younger Daughter is very clearly a girl, though - she had her pink phase, likes to wear her hair long, and her best friends are all girls. However, they tend to be bright, nerdy, inquisitive girls - the odd ones out. Quite unpopular that little group is in their class, too (the class is dominated by the large group of more "ordinary" girls, who compete with each other in popularity and conformance).
Last spring MiM was out on his brother's sailing boat with both girls (I stayed home cramming for an exam). BIL I (the eldest of my three BILs) remarked on how all over the place YD was: climbing everywhere, studying the pulleys and clips, opening every cupboard in the mess, trying out what happens when you pull on this rope or that... while ED mostly sat still in the aft, reading. MiM reflected on that if YD was a boy, people around us would likely see this behavioral difference as further "proof" of genetic sex/gender differences. Whereas now the difference is usually labeled as "just" a personal/character difference and sometimes outright dismissed as evidence *against* sex/gender stereotypes.
BTW: those most eager to dismiss the non-conforming aspects of YD and her friends' behavior as "not that important" tend to be eager to dismiss also that there is pressure in the class for girls to dress alike and have alike school backpacks, pens, copybooks etc. or that the girls who do best in school, especially in math, are being actively ostracized by the "majority" girls' "leaders".
"The internet is made of people. People matter. This includes you. Stop trying to sell everything about yourself to everyone. Don’t just hammer away and repeat and talk at people—talk TO people. It’s organic. Make stuff for the internet that matters to you, even if it seems stupid. Do it because it’s good and feels important. Put up more cat pictures. Make more songs. Show your doodles. Give things away and take things that are free." - Maureen J
