I'm as forward thinking as they come. Whenever anyone talks about where we'll be in 2020, I still maintain that we will all be living on the moon by then. The second they build a hover car I'm going to buy it, because it's a car & it hovers & that is awesome.
There are limits to my forward thinking-ness. (See? I invent new words, that's forward.) Now since I don't have kids, babies in general all look the same to me. So when I meet a new baby, I usually take cues from their outfits as to what their gender is so I can say "hello new baby boy" If the outfit is green or yellow I just say "hello new baby, it's nice to meet you." I try not to say "hello new baby boy or girl" because I'm classy like that. If that fails I just say "What is your name?" hoping the parents will answer & give me a clue or the baby will suddenly learn how to talk & their first words will be "I'm a boy".
So yes you can be forward thinking & dress your new infant girl in a blue sleeper. However, you really forfeit your right to be offended if people think she is a boy. Especially, if your kid is named Ryan. How am I supposed to know it's spelled Rian? Seriously, in 2020 when I'm driving my hover car on the moon, I'll still think baby Rian is a boy. Yes, I know that hover cars will work a lot easier on the moon but still it's a car & it hovers & that is awesome.
