Please Stop Calling My Child 'Little Man'
We’re trying to raise him with a lot of options and very few assumptions, but I won’t be mad at you if you call my kid “handsome little boy” or something. It’s fine. People have a hard time talking about babies without gendered labels. Even I have a hard time with it, and I’ve put a kind of ridiculous amount of energy into analyzing this stuff. However, I do have one favor to ask. Please, for the love of everything that is good in this world, stop calling him “little man.”
