Is that acceptable or some sort of faux pas?
I'm not sure if this is the right place to ask but I can't think of anywhere else.
I was in this situation the other day and thought I would see how some of you might handle it.
I was at the grocery store, and as I was reaching for a dozen egg this little kid (maybe 4 or so) sitting in the cart says hello. I said hi and moved on down the aisle. I hear the kid asking her mother "is that a boy or a girl". The mother tries to explain that I was a girl, but the kid doesn't quite believe it and is getting quite vocal about the reason why. At this point the mother is apologizing to me and obviously embarrassed by her kid but not sure what to do about it. And neither did I. She was trying to be nice, but was making things worse.
I know I don't pass especially when I talk. I dress very male, and don't have a visable chest thus kids usually assume I am male without much question. Anyhow has anyone had a similar situation or thoughts on how to handle it?
