    Default Random Gender Query

    I have a random query that I never thought anything of until it happened again yesterday, so now I'm curious to find out.

    I have a 5mo DD. Who gets dressed in pink, dresses, headbands etc. Anytime I go out, people stop me and talk to my little girl and say how cute she is, what's her name etc, however, I have noticed on 5 separate occasions, that whenever I am stopped by someone who is Asian, they ask 'is it a boy or girl?' So I am wondering, in Asia, do boys get dressed in pink with floral etc? It was a little strange yesterday how my DD was dressed in a flowery pink dress with a headband, and the Asian chemist asked if 'it' was a boy or girl. I thought it was pretty obvious? Can anyone shed some light?

    well not really sure, but I often have my boys referred to as girls.. not that they look like girls or are dressed that way.

    I guess I would understand if she wasn't dressed in pink with no headband, because she doesn't have much hair, but that's why I put pretty things on her, so she looks girly.

    from attending a playgroup with Asian families I think generally not alot of importance is placed on gender specific clothing, plus maybe they dont want to be rude and call a baby the wrong sex?

    I guess so, I just thought I make her obviously look like a girl haha. I just thought it a bit strange how everyone else can tell she is a girl.

    I've got 2 girls and they were both often called boys by strangers even when they were in very girly pink clothes dresses skirts etc. I don't think hair makes much difference I had one with heaps of hair and one with not much and they were still called boys.
