I’m just going to be blunt here; Tre is a toddler sexist. I have to call it how I see it, even if that means bashing my own flesh n blood. The sad part is, I blame myself. Well not really, but whenever something goes wrong with a child, everybody rushes to blame the parents, so I figured I’d beat you guys to it. Apparently he’s been this way his entire life and I’m just now realizing it. Maybe deep down I’ve always known the truth, but did my best to suppress it in hopes that it would go away. However, lately, it has become undeniable; his blatant sexism and total disregard for the opposite sex is now too much to ignore. You may be wondering how is it possible that a toddler, a child so pure, so innocent could be labeled something as harsh as a sexist. Well it’s really pretty simple; he feels that the male persuasion is superior in every way, shape, and form (his words, not mine). How do I know this you say? I know this because Tre refuses to utilize feminine pronouns to address individuals belonging to the female gender. To Tre, everything is he, his, or him, regardless of the sex of the person he’s referring to. I don’t know about you, but to me that seems pretty sexist.
Tank doesn’t get a lot of shine over hear at DFB, that’s partly my fault because I’ve never truly embraced him as ‘my’ dog, (we’ll save that for another story). But it’s only partly my fault; the other part is because, well let’s face it, dogs just aren’t really all that exciting to write about. Once Tank starts reciting the alphabet, or doing doggie back flips, he’ll get featured more; but for now, this tail (intentional) will have to due. This morning around 5am I awoke to the sound of clawing and scratching at our back door, mixed with faint dog barks. I immediately got pissed, and immediately knew what today’s topic would be about.
Tre has a best friend in our house; you would think it’d be one of his parents, more likely his older brother, all of the above are WRONG. His best friend is the stupid dog, Tank. Don’t get me wrong, Tank is a good dog at times but come on, to choose the dog over your own kind? It kind of makes me question the kid’s loyalty.
