It’s true that a majority of children seem to gravitate towards gender-specific items (though how much is nature or nurture is still a puzzle), but it amazes me that people still try to FORCE children to act according to their what their gender is “supposed” to like rather than personality.

When scripting “Little Dee” I really enjoyed the little details such as Blake saying that they “talked WITH frogs” rather than “talking TO frogs,” because in their world, frogs, of course, talk back.
I think Virgil was mentioned once or twice more. Hm.
Anyhow, this is something I try to be conscious of, whether on the phone or just in conversation, that if I’m talking about gross or not all-ages etc topics, to try to be conscious of those around me (eaters, kids, etc).
