Baby Questions

I know, I’ve been writing a lot about the baby on the way. I promise, I’ll start to calm it down a bit. I hope. Until then, here’s another burning question that my three readers are just dying to know.

Wait, you are now calling OP a she, does that mean it’s a girl?

I have been reading voraciously on the topic of pregnancy trying to understand every nuance, because I’m obsessive. So of course I’m on an online pregnancy community.  One of the topics a few weeks back was a rant. Apparently the poster, unaware of the sex of her baby, refers to the baby as a “she.” Apparently the coworker was offended. “What if the baby is a boy?” she asked, “Then you’d make him gay!” Roll with me for a bit, I’m getting to the point.

Let’s put aside the absurdity of this statement for a moment. Think about the implications of the statement. If the baby was a girl and was referred to as a “he,” then, by the same logic, the baby would be a lesbian. Therefore, if you change the gender you deem your child, what will it then become? I don’t know either, so I decided what better way to find out than to switch what I called Optimus Prime every week. Think of the papers I could write!

So either you want to hit me or laugh. I’m good with either. I’ve been switching what I call little OP every week. This week he’s a she and next week she’ll be a he. It’s simply because I don’t want to get married to a single sex and then be disappointed and people look at you funny when you call her an it. Sorry, I’m not more deep.
