I always find it a hoot when I hear from friends with young children that they have no idea why or how their boy children start acting “like boys,” and their girl children acting “like girls.”  They say “we haven’t done anything, it just seems to come naturally!”  But of course we dimorphically gender them from the moment of conception, reading sonograms, announcing the baby’s “sex” as the first bit of information sent out at birth, gendering baby clothing and toys, etc.  Of course this is all familar news, along with the other quotidian ways in which we’re boy-ed, girl-ed, man-ed and woman-ed all throughout our lives: think zippers and button holes (women’s zipper pull on left, men on right, women’s buttons on right side, men’s on left).
