R: Wow, I still can’t believe this is happening! Have you thought of a name yet?
Me: Yes, Z if it’s a boy, M if it’s a girl.
R: Nice. Why M? It’s so old fashioned and boring!
Me: I want to name the baby after Mister’s mom.
R: So what do you want? A boy or a girl?
Me: A boy.
R: Why a boy? I always thought of you as a feminist.
Me: I am a feminist. Why did that even come up?
R: Because you said you would prefer a baby boy over a baby girl.
Me: But what does feminism have to do with whether I want a boy or a girl?
*more conversation that leads nowhere*
R: Oh please, it is people like you who claim to be feminists but will choose genders when having babies.
Me: Hey, you asked if I wanted a boy or a girl! Besides, if I want a girl, am I not still choosing one gender over the other?
R: But educated people should always opt for a girl child.
Me: I’m sorry, but do you realize that it’s not biologically possible to choose a girl child even if you want one?
R: But still. At least you could pretend to want a girl.
Me: I give up. Maybe it’s really difficult for you to think with your head stuck that far up your ass.
*can’t believe I just actually said that out loud*
*shit, she’s never going to talk to me again*
I’m laughing at this conversation right now. Are you?
