She is a Girl!

"She's not my friend. She's a girl."
"Why can't a girl be your friend?"
"Because she is a girl."
"I know that, but why can't she be your friend?"
"Because. She. Is. A. Girl."
"So what? She can still be your friend."
"I am telling you she is A Girl. How can she be my friend?"
"Why not? You are in the same class. You can be friends."
"I don't want girls to be my friend. They don't know Kung Fu. And they want to play stupid games."

He's five. Wonder if he would feel differently when he is fifteen?

At least he's persistent!

Margot Kinberg said...

Rayna - Yes. He will feel differently when he's fifteen ;-). I always think it's so interesting how boys' and girls' feelings about each other change through the years. There's a lot of research about why that happens, but your Drabble says it all :-).

Anu said...

oh, we are at the same stage too.... and wonder what it will be like 5 years from now!

L. Diane Wolfe said...

Guess that's why I was a Tomboy - I wanted to be friends with the boys.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

At fifteen, he'll want her to be more than a friend!

Jemi Fraser said...

So cute! That will most certainly change in time! :)

Dorte H said...

Don´t know about fifteen, but he probably will when he is seventeen ;)

And when I was five, I suffered somewhat from the prejudices of boys - I´d rather climb trees than play with dolls so I depended on boys to play with :D

The wonderful world of absolutes children live in. It is likely, in ten or so years, he will be as absolute in exactly the opposite direction.

But very cute now. :-)

Meera said... exactly their sentiments become by 15!

slommler said...

Oh boy!! Will he be thinking differently soon! And it will be soon....they grown so fast!!
Loved this conversation!

@ Oddyoddyo13 - very. Drives me to exasparation.

@ Margot - it is weird how these ideas get into their heads, and how they change, isn't it?

@ Anu - precisely. Both my kids "hate" girls.

@ Diane - me too. I found most boys more sensible than girls.

@ Alex - I am pretty sure of that.

@ Jemi - I am sure they will. The future of humanity depends on that, after all.

@ Dorte - as long as it doesn't change BEFORE he is 15, I am not too worried.
And I was similar to you- much preferred being with the boys.

@ KjM - he will, wouldn't he?

@ Meera - precisely.

@ SueAnn - would love to hold this moment forever. But thats' not really possible, is it?
