Thats what the cashier at the store thinks
I go to stop and shop and the cashier says "aww how cute a boy right?" I say no she's a girl and she says "ooo it must be because she's bald!!"
Yeah that's it i didnt realize girls were born with long golden locks nevermind the purple car seat, hearts on her shirt and earrings totally make her look like boy

oh lord. whatever! i WANTED a little bald baby with peach fuzz! they always just look more like "babies". they look so much older with hair. Low and behold, both my kids (boy and girl) were born with a big mass of hair. I never had anyone assume my son was girl though just for the mop of hair. that is asinine.

LOL I didnt know one gender had a way of being born with hair or without hair. BTW, my nephew was born with a head full of bright red hair. Some people just dont think!

My grandson is bald, and people ask if he's a girl despite the blue carseat, blue stroller, blue coat, etc

my b/g twins were mistaken for boys all the time...my son was born with a headfull of curls and his sister was bald as a cue ball...in my culture we shave the baby'shead on their first birthday.. I chose not todo that and was asked by6 amlost everyone at my temple why I shaved my dd's head and not my son's...she didnt have hair until she was 3...even when she was in a pink car seat, with fluff and bows on she 3 was called a boy...one time this lady came to us and said, "Oh twins! Both boys?" dd was in a yellow dress with lady bugs on it, my dh said, "yes they are, but we wanted a girl so we are forcing gender identity on this one" She drew her self upand yelled at dh,"You are an awful man!" and stormed off...we almost wet ourselves laughing

My 14 yr old was mistaken for a girl. He was bald when he was a baby, but as he got older his hair started to get super curly. I had him dressed in a blue shirt with rockets, jeans and blue/white shoes one day and this old lady commented that he was such a beautiful little girl. I just grinned and politely said thank you, but he's a little boy.
