    Well, you've obviously got a "type"

    Yeah it really is. It's really quite odd really as I would expect age&gender doesn't actually be a major factor into if someone is a pedophile or not.

    Kinda fits in with the thread I started earlier about sexism against men.

    Not spruiking, just mindful of not derailing the OP.

    This is us exactly, people ask this ALL the time...and yes my boys look very similar but one is super tall for his age and the other is way under weight for his age...

    That is HILARIOUS. I rarely laugh so hard I cry but this did it!

    I feel the same. Poor old man was probably lonely and just after a chat. What he was saying was lovely, really. I always get approached by old women when out and about with DS. It's terrible that society is becoming so stupid in this regard towards men.

    Yep, DS was mistaken for a girl as well when he was a baby. We took him for a haircut (blonde longish hair) and the hairdresses all cooed over my "beautiful baby girl".. didn't help that they were all Vietnamese and had trouble understanding when I explained that he was actually a boy. He was wearing a purple top as well.
    I mistook my ex boss's baby girl for a boy... during my job interveiw! She was bouncing her baby on her knee during the interview (it was at a child's play centre) and she was dressed in all grey.. I still got the job though
    And, not long after DS was born, I worked casually as a waitress and my boss asked me if I was pregnant one day!! Mortified. I was wearing an apron and it must have just added to the baby belly I still had.. I still remember the awkward feeling to this day

    How do you respond to that though? I mean really, I had nothing. Except my out of season cheese addiction.

    These stories are so funny! I think the cheese is my favourite.

    I have had loads of incidents where my girls have been mistaken for boys but two in particular stand out, both with DD2.

    An old man patted DD (about 7 months) on the head and said, 'Hello young fella'. DD was dressed in a pink tennis dress - could not have been more girly if she tried. I was so outraged I put a picture of her on Facebook asking my friends if she looked vaguely like a boy!

    When DD was 8 months a lady told me that my little 'boy' was so cute. DD was dressed in a white body suit with glittery silver stripes and puffed sleeves. Told the lady that my boy was actually a girl and she replied 'oh, but she looks like a boy'.......

    Another really weird conversation I had was with an old lady at the Botanical Gardens when I was pregnant with DD2. She asked me what I was having and I told her that I was pregnant with my second girl. She asked me if I was despondent! What do you say to that?!
