“…it just matters who you are.”

I love how clearly kids see things. Does anyone else have a good quote from a kid’s take on gender?

    all i have to say is: WOW. what an intelligent little lady with a great outlook on things. things she comprehends so clearly at seven, most adults can barely grasp. i really enjoyed this video.

    I remember when I was kid, my family had this tradition, everytime some of my relatives came to visit, they whould bring me a puzzle set. everyone gathered around me and say
    “hey now watch what he does”.
    I would trough the puzzle onto the table, and began arranging all the pieces facing down…then they would say “what r u doing, they have to be facing up”
    I replied “if they are facing up I can see that the image on the pieces matches the one shown on the box…so I already know where they are going to be!
    whats the fun in that !!”

    Like the puzzle, you can assemble yourself anyway you want to, because the image is outside, and only you know how the pieces are intricately connected on the inside (or not) =)

    I was a puzzle kid too, but didn’t come up with your wise approach. I love the idea of a personal internal puzzle.

    Pedro: I love your puzzle analogy! :)

    The same girl was on this program:
    Listening to Barbara Walters can be a bit painful and the non-queer bi-gendered point of view you get on these tv shows can be a little annoying at times, but this was pretty ok for a tv production!
