I cannot believe there are so many up in arms about this subject no issue for girls but end of the world for a boy.

I can't believe nobody has interviewed the neighbors dog to get his opinion on the matter.....

I do think the neighbor's dog would make more sense.

Let me go and ask our local dog what she thinks on the matter. I'm not sure if I'm going to get a cogent response or not.

I came across this article on MSN today:

Now if it had been a boy that was ordered out for alleged inappropriate wear then probably nothing would have been said. But because it was a girl ....

Eehhh... I don't know all about that... I'm willing to bet something might have been said if a boy showed up in a female swimsuit.... bulge and all...

Of course in all fairness girls generally don't have a bulge down there.... and there IS a solution for that.. [the boy bulge]...

A swim skirt!

Ouch and I gave up on the podcast.
The article about the girl in the fountain is another issue and down to somebody taking their job a tad too seriously.
I honestly believe that neither do any favours for any gender.
In both cases the crap is being offloaded onto the kids by so called "elders and betters" who really do not have a clue.

No man nor boy should have to play the trans* card to avail himself of a simple article of clothing. To imply otherwise is to undermine males as to their status as human beings. Full stop.

Attacking swans are very dangerous. This isn't the first incident of them killing dogs, cats and even people. To be safe avoid all contact with the crazy beasts.

From my childhood on I was brainwashed: stay away from angry swans. Their wings are their weapons and the wings break your bones easily. So I gave the birds in a nearby park left-over crums of bread to make peace. ;)

Actually the myth that a swan can break your arm is what it is - a myth. They simply aren't that strong. They may get aggressive, hiss and flap their wings but it's not enough to inflict anything more than a bruise or two. So no need to be afraid of them.
