Boy or girl? Why not have a stereotype instead?

Originally posted on glosswatch:
I knew my sons were boys four months before they were born. For each, a penis was visible on the twenty week scan. They were not, shall we say, “modest”, which is just as well, because I wanted to know in advance. I wanted to be able to prepare myself, by…
